PLANNING YOUR ADVENTURE
We get excited hearing friends and customers planning their great riding and racing adventures for 2016. We have customers planning among others such cool events like the Death March gravel/trail/road event in the Hoosier National Forest on March 12; the Team Nebo Ridge Spring Training Camp in Story, Indiana on March 18; Michigan’s Barry Roubaix famous gravel road event on April 16; the Indy Eagle Creek road criteriums/races in April and May; the early May 16 Assault on Mt. Mitchell ride from Spartanburg, S.C. to the highest point east of the Mississippi; the incomparable June 4 Dirty Kanza 200 Mile Gravel Road race in the Flint Hills of Kansas; the July 16 162 mile Ride Across Indiana (RAIN); and the mid-August Leadville 100 mountain bike race. These are all life-enhancing events taking you to the edge and exploring new territory both literally and metaphorically. They tend to focus the mind and legs this time of year.
But the most exciting adventure is often that planned by a friend or customer who, after years away from the bike, is taking up again their love of riding. At Nebo Ridge Bicycles we get excited helping plan out that first 5 mile ride (or 10, or 100 mile ride) for this customer. It is often the most important ride of their lives. These are the real bicycle adventurers – taking real risks on uncharted roads and paths and changing their lives forever.
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 like the one published by BikeRadar at http://www.bikerader.com. 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 www.salsacycles.com to see more.
