Celebrating the best in Indiana cycling
Bicycling is perhaps the best way to get a true sense of our place in the world. I loved the way the Dirty Kanza organizers, living in a remote corner of Kansas, in the midst of some of the country’s last open grassland prairies, recognized the unique beauty of it. They then created from the ground up a community-supported event to celebrate and honor their sense of place and warmly and generously shared it with visitors like us.
I can’t forget at one point well into the race when my group of some ten riders were stopped dead in our (double) tracks -- by a literal stampede of about 500 head of cattle blasting across the dusty dirt road just yards in front of us.
This is an outstanding time to buy a new bike to take you on the ride of your dreams this summer. Our award-winning shop is full of Cannondale, Scott, Salsa, Moots, Ridley, and Electra bikes to look over and to test ride. Do you know you are not only welcome but encouraged to take your prospective new bike for a THOROUGH test ride. Compare. Contrast. Ride! Repeat. We want you to love your bike and love riding it, and we can match a quality new bike to your desires and needs. Our well-trained sales associates, our bike fitters, and our mechanics are ready, willing, and able to help you with your questions.
And we don’t forget the family. We are decidedly not a “racer” or “pro” shop. Certainly bike enthusiasts of all stripes love our shop, but we have bikes for and cater to ALL members of your family from age one on up (e.g., balance bikes or Burley trailers).
We always have great new products for the season. We’ve just put out most of our fall and winter apparel. No surprise, but layering is critical for keeping comfortable this time of year, and for having an efficient and versatile riding wardrobe. We have an unsurpassed variety of cycling specific baselayers available to choose from. We have Castelli Flanders pieces – all with ribbed main bodies for better wicking and warmth and mesh under-arms for better comfort. The Flanders Wind long-sleeve adds a windproof front making it perfect for two-layer systems. For layering, you might also try the more traditional merino wool piece from Endura – the Baa Baa Baselayer. This is a great baselayer or a great lay-around-the-cabin piece.
Of course, we’ve got in this year a fantastic new collection of jackets – from the expedition weather-proof but breathable PTFE Venturi II shell from Endura – to great road riding soft shells from Castelli (the Trasparente is wonderful down below freezing), from Sugoi, and from Endura.<br><br>
Finally, don’t forget your new Garmin 1000 to help you navigate the back roads of your ‘burb into the wilds of Indiana. This new Garmin adds to the legendary and dependable GPS/speed/HR system, a bigger touch screen, magnet-free sensors, and enhanced interfaces with phones and other devices.
Late last year, Nebo Ridge Bicycles was again named by the industry's top trade magazine, Bicycling Retailing, as a Top 100 Bike Shop. The year before Bicycling Magazine – also named us as a Top 100 Shop. We are proud of these designations and invite you to come in our shop and discover why we've received this award.
Besides our great service, expert mechanics, premier fitting services, and broad support of bicycling in our community – we have put the "indie" in the designation of independent retailer. We have done our homework and selected FOR YOU a superior set of bicycling-related products to delight and serve your cycling needs. We are not beholden to any one bike manufacturer or supplier. Come in and see what the buzz is all about.
