Nebo Ridge Base/Power/Peak Indoor Training Program
For our 2018 indoor training program, we have installed the first Wahoo Kickr Studio in Indiana. Using twelve state-of-the-art Wahoo Kickr and Kickr Snap smart trainers, you and your instructor have instant access to power, speed and other training data as you and your classmates track your workouts on our big projector screen TV.
Our multi-week Base/Power/Peak Training program is offered in 3 sessions. The “Base” session ran for 6 weeks from Nov 14 to Dec 21; the “Power” session runs 6 weeks from Jan 2 to Feb 8; the final 4-week “Peak” session runs Feb 12 to Mar 8. For all sessions, you choose between 80-minute group workouts on Tu/Th or Mon/Wed evenings. We still have a limited number of slots open for our “Peak” 4-week session ($180). Make sure you are ready, fit and able to get outside again this Spring!
Participants must bring their own bike. Bike storage is available at Nebo for $40 per session. Call or stop by Nebo Ridge Bicycles at 106th Street and Michigan Road to reserve your spot now.

Come in and test ride one today at Nebo Ridge Bicycles.

GARMIN ANNOUNCES NEW EDGE 1030 GPS COMPUTER and VECTOR 3/3S POWER METER
Ride longer and faster while staying connected with the Edge 1030 GPS Cycling Computer. In addition to a bigger screen and an unheard of battery life of 20 hrs (or over 40 with extra Garmin Power Pack add-on), the Garmin 1030 features new fast and reliable routing capabilities, more on-board maps and navigation, and better connectivity for rider-to-rider messaging and use of Strava and other social platforms. The 1030 starts at just $599.
Garmin has also just announced the new Vector 3 and 3S pedal-based power meter. Compared to the Vector 2, the new model is slimmer, easier to install (no pods), more accurate (1% vs 2% variance), and still comes with either the “single” or double-pedaled version with options to later upgrade. The Vector integrates simply and seamlessly with the entire range of Garmin cycling computers (Edge 520 on up). The Vector 3S is priced at $599.
THE NEW CANNONDALE SUPER X — For Cyclocross or Gravel Racers Everywhere
This is one beautiful bike from Cannondale — the 2018 Carbon Super X — capable of international podium finishes on the UCI Cyclocross race circuit or killing it (comfortably) on a Midwest century gravel road ride. Cannondale has taken a new “out-front” geometry for stability and comfort, combined with shortest-in-class chain stays, and created a beautifully crafted sub-1000g. carbon frame. This bike is designed to take up to 42 mm wide tires (which comes in handy on Indiana plush gravel roads). The SRAM Force equipped SE or Special Edition version with a single chain-ring is our favorite — simple and with clean, mud-shedding frame contours — and special WTB wheels and tires perfect for Hoosier gravel. Heck, this bike can be your one bike for all — road (with skinny 28 mm tires), cyclocross, and gravel!
