Summer Road Bike Sale Is Expanded
Nebo Ridge is thumbing its nose at high road bike prices and has expanded its road bike sale to nearly every road bike in stock! We’ve just slashed prices on all of our 2015 and most of our 2016 road bikes. And we have included in the sale most of our Salsa Warbird and Vaya gravel/touring bikes. Enjoy savings from 5 to 30% on our great selection of fast, light and functional road bikes. Come in, test ride, save, and still get in a full summer of great road riding. The price of each road bike sold includes a free Basic Bike Fit worth $150! To review a complete list of our closeouts go to our website Closeout List. But we suggest you come in soon before these great deals are gone.
Congratulations and Shout Out to the Bloomington Bicycle Club for RAIN!
We were happy to be a big part of this past weekend’s Ride Across INdiana (RAIN) — the one-way, one-day 160 mile timed bicycle ride across Indiana. This is a big, big deal for the Bloomington Bicycle Club, and they do a great job! The logistics and volunteer effort for a one-way event like this are enormous, and every year the BBC comes through with flying colors. We always like the final sag stop on US 40 in Dunrieth, Indiana, with its famed, delicious popsicles.
Team Nebo Ridge loves the camaraderie and teamwork required for this event, and every year over 30 members take the challenge of RAIN. This year over 1800 riders signed up; about 1300 finished before the 9 pm cut-off. Eleven of the first 31 riders crossing the line were TNR members or former members. But certainly it is much more than how fast you can ride — congratulations are due to every rider meeting the challenge of this ride — especially those riding 160 miles for the first time!
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 recently launched! 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.
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.
