We have a few demo bikes to sell off. All are used, but in excellent condition.
The 2013 Tricross Elite Disc is a great bike to get you where you need to go. If you need to get to, say, Vancouver, this ride can be equipped with racks and bags and made ready for touring. If you need to get to work, you can put fenders and lights on there and maybe some studded tires for winter commuting. If you need to get to the finish line at a cross race, just strip it down to the essentials and put on some cross tires. All that to say, this is one versatile bike. Reg. $1699, now $1190. 54cm only.
Again this year, we will be carrying the Wahoo Fitness Kickr trainer. This is a fantastic fitness tool for any level of cyclist. We have been using one at home for a full year now, and have been super happy with the performance. As difficult as it is to get motivated to ride indoors, this interactive trainer helps keep things interesting. The basic idea is that this is an electronic trainer that is controlled by apps on your device (phone, ipad). It is open source, so there are a variety of ways to interact with the trainer. The apps can control the resistance, so you can recreate your favorite rides on Strava or ride something completely new. For a detailed look, check out the DC Rainmaker review on the Kickr.
Lots of new 2015 bikes have been arriving, but probably the coolest bike we have seen so far is the 2015 Turbo X. This is a modern and sleek electric assist bike. It requires that you pedal (it is a bicycle) but gives you a boost up to 32kph. It feels super smooth in operation and has integrated lighting and an onboard computer. Check it out. It’s you, only faster…
If you have been thinking of trying out some of the cyclocross races this season, there is still one awesome deal left on a 2013 Crux Elite Disc. This is a great all around bike, for all kinds of riding, but built for cross racing. If you want to ride a variety of surfaces from road to trail and have confidence on the loose stuff, this is a great choice. And if you want to ride full blast on the grass at the next cross race, till you want to vomit, this is still a great choice. Was $2099, now $1470. 54cm only.
This 2013 Roubaix Sport is a great all-around bike for the roads of NS. A full carbon frame and fork with Roubaix geometry and vibration damping Zertz inserts makes this machine all-day comfortable. A Shimano 105/Tiagra 10sp drivetrain ensure quality shifting. We have one 54cm left, and it is a truly great deal at $1470. Reg. $2099.
