Find Your Road This Memorial Day Weekend — Shop Closed Monday
We hope you enjoy your weekend and find your special road this Memorial Day weekend. Nebo Ridge Bicycles will be closed Memorial Day — Monday, May 30, 2016.
Bike Skills Training with Coach Bob Brooks
On Wednesday nights, May 25 and June 8, at 6 p.m. Coach Bob Brooks will lead from the shop a road riding skills-building session. Owner of Brooks Integrative Training, Bob will lead participants out on a road ride and, while riding (with short stops for instruction), work with participants on fundamental skills to make you a better and safer road rider — e.g., cornering, sprinting, climbing, riding in traffic (auto and bike), and safe paceline and peloton riding. Sponsored by Team Nebo Ridge — the cost is free to TNR members and $10 per session for non-members. Just show up. No need to register. Recommended for road riders willing and able to ride at least about 20 miles at 15 mph or faster.
Weekly Rides with Nebo Ridge
There are plenty of riding opportunities around Nebo Ridge Bicycles. You can get complete information on shop rides from our shop website under the Upcoming Rides/Weekly Rides menu tab. There’s even a short video link showing how our Tuesday/Thursday night ride rolls! We especially want folks to know that on Thursday night there is “something for everyone” (almost)! As long as you are up for 17 miles at a leisurely pace, we have a ride leader and group for you.
Launch of Our NEW Nebo Ridge Website
We invite you to explore our new website that we have launched this month! We hope our website cleanly and simply represents our shop, our products, our people, and our community. We believe that the best way to experience your sense of place (wherever you may be) is to ride your bike and pay attention, and we aim to help you with this. It is sublime and simple.
To illustrate this we’ve commissioned and licensed a set of great bike-related Indiana photographic images from local artists Michelle Craig and Scott Snyder. We are using the images liberally throughout our website to help inspire you. If you like the images, we invite you to a showing of Michelle’s photographs at the shop on Thursday evening, June 30, from 5 to 8 pm.
We hope our website encourages you to visit our shop and talk with our employees about cycling or your bike. This is what sets us apart from most other bike shops – our comfortable and easy retail setting and our friendly and approachable manner with all customers. And our Italian espresso is ALWAYS on tap for our customers.
Along with our website, we are also launching a new blog site with more in-depth discussion, photos, and essays about cycling. It is penned by shop owner, Tim Casady, and
occasional guest authors. With the upcoming
world famous Dirty Kanza 200/100 gravel road race in Emporia, Kansas, check out Tim’s Blog and enjoy his essays on his experience at the 2015 Dirty Kanza, as well as his ride last month in southern Brown County near Story, Indiana. You can always access the blog from the top menu of our website.
By presenting our more in-depth musings in our blog, our monthly e-mail — Nebo Shop News — will be even straighter and more to-the-point – with essential announcements, big-time product announcements, and sale opportunities. If you don’t already receive our newsletter, you can sign up from the front page of our website. Of course, our newsletter will continue to provide information and links to the best cycling events happening throughout our area. This information on top local cycling events, weekly shop rides, and races is also updated regularly and available from our “Upcoming Rides & Events” top menu tab on our website.
Tired of a poor fitting bike? Your bike should not hurt you. If it does, talk to Joel, our Senior Fitter. With years of experience gained in hundreds of fits, and with a lot of common sense, our Kinovea dual-axis simultaneous video tools, and our Spin-Scan analysis, in two hours he might be able to change your life as you know it on your bike! Prices start at $75. Our in-depth Pro Fit is $250. You can get more information in the “Bike Fitting” section of our website (under the “Services” top menu tab).
2016 New Bike Overview
There is a lot to be excited about when it comes to new 2016 bike models from our hand-picked stable of great bike designers, manufacturers and suppliers. Cannondale this year has completely retooled its SuperSix EVO road bike which is receiving rave reviews. Cannondale has also turned heads with its new “All-Road” Slate bike with wider and more comfortable tires, smaller diameter wheels (650B), and a 30 mm Lefty front suspension. It is a stunning bike!
Not to be outdone, Scott’s new road bike, the Scott Solace 10 Disc, is one of the best-looking endurance road bikes I’ve ever seen. Check it out at http://www.scottusa.com.
We also have a broad line of adventure, gravel, and trekking bikes from Salsa Cycles. These are bikes engineered to take you places – from your local gravel roads to mountain back-country epic rides. Maybe the carbon Beargrease fat-tire bike for snow and trail will get you outside? Or the new all-road super bikes: the Salsa Warbird or the Salsa Vaya. Go to http://www.salsacycles.com to see more.
