SBC Operations Update May 15th!

It is hard to believe that it has been over two months since our lives drastically changed with C19. During this time we all have had to overcome many hurdles in our personal and professional lives. SBC is proud to be part of a community that has thus far navigated the challenges. Together we are committed to maintaining our efforts moving forward to meet any needs you might have, cycling or not.

We are incredibly grateful to our staff and customer base who have enabled SBC to stay open through this. As we continue down this unknown road SBC will continue to provide outside patio sales and service. Next Thursday we will be opening our door (just patio door) to those who need inside store help. We will continue to provide and encourage outdoor shopping, pick up and drop off. We think this outside experience is best for all of us, and who does not like being outside especially during our beautiful spring weather!

We have had numerous phone calls and requests for PULP, hopefully your PULP withdrawal is not too bad. We hope your next acai bowl, veggie nachos or beer is right around the corner. When we do open the cafe it will be for to go and patio seating orders only. We are also working on an online ordering and pickup system for PULP so we can provide the safest Cafe environment possible.

Keep up the smiles, the sun is shining!

Love to all,
From our Family to yours!

3/24/20….Yes, WE ARE OPEN, just operating a little differently!

First off, we wish you and your family all the best in these uncertain times. During these shut down days we need to think of what we “can do”. The “can do’s” might be a house project, family puzzles or spit shine that old bike of yours. It’s time to look at the needed physical space separation as opportunity (we just don’t care for the social distance phrase)! Catch up on the list of books you’ve stock piled (Bertrand Russell’s “Conquest of Happiness” tops the charts). Journaling is also one of the most powerful tools during times of stress, write it down and let it go…

On Friday March 20th SBC decided to temporarily shut its doors for two weeks so we could help flatten the curve. When this decision was made we were hoping the closure might only be for two weeks, in light of our Governors recent announcements and the continual environment changes we are realizing that our retail closure will most last longer, however WE ARE OPEN!

This is what SBC “CAN DO” to help support your cycling needs now and for the foreseeable future (but the crystal ball is a little cloudy and keeps changing).

Customer service is at the heart of our shop and has been our focus for twenty years. Our friendly and factory-certified staff will happily help you navigate the best choices for your purchase and service needs. Our passion for spinning wrenches professionally began in the 80s, back when bikes were relatively simple machines. Nearly 40 years later, mechanical complexity brings us the modern bicycle in countless shapes and sizes. Our shop owners, managers and staff have stayed committed to seeking education and hands-on experience along the way, allowing us to stay up-to-date with all emerging technology. What a ride it has been! From classic steel to the most recent e-bikes, we sell Trek, Electra, Kona, Ibis, Salsa and Surly brands.

We service ALL brands. Free on-the-spot estimates. Our Service Promise is to provide exceptional service in a timely manner at a fair price. 24 hour turnaround on repairs (not requiring special order parts) is the foundation of our promise.

Your local bike shop since 2000.

Struggle Bus on the Alpine Loop!

For years my Gran Fondo day has been working the Brandywine Rest Stop with the SBC crew, helping riders recover from the mountain they just climbed and more importantly preparing them for the unknown that lays ahead. Having never done the Alpine Loop, the sharp right turn just south of the Brandywine rest stop has …

“The Puzzler” is complete after 4 years of collaborative efforts

Buy Western Slope Trail Passes A few Thursdays ago the trail work crews took the final walk off the mountain from “The Puzzler” trail. With headlamps lighting up the hanging orange tape, we ripped the flags from the trees that had marked our access path for the past year. It had been 4 years since …
