After months of waiting the much-anticipated 9:ZERO:7 190 Fatbikes are here. This is a new model featuring 190mm rear spacing which allows the use of 100mm rims like the Surly Clownshoes with the 5" tires (eg: Surly Bud and Lou). Want lighter? You can still run the regular Darryl rims and 4" tires no problem. We have pre-sold a number of custom ones but we will also be offering them in the same build kits and 9:ZERO:7 (with a few upgrades we feel work better, eg: hydraulic disc brakes). The Susitna build will be 2399.99 and the McGrath Build will be 2999.99. For those who like their fat light, stay tuned for the carbon Whiteout frames any day now.
Here's al link to the 9:ZERO:7 website with the builds...or just drop by.
Pre-Order Your 2014 Bike in October and get a Great Deal!
Here's how it Works:
1) Pick out that awesome 2014 bike you've been wanting.
2) Come by the shop and we'll give you the Pre-Order Sale Price. You get a great deal and you are guaranteed to get the model you want
3) Put down 50% and we add it to our 2014 booking order. Depending on the model, it will come in between February and April. We'll let you know of course.
4) When it comes in and is all good, you pay the other 50%.
What's the Fine Print?
This deal only applies to bikes over $1500.
Balance on bike must be paid off by April 15th (if the bike gets here by then of course--the basement gets pretty jammed). Some high-end models can take longer so if that happens, then it's balance due when the bike is ready.
Offer ends October 31st so don't wait.
New to Hardcore are Foundry Bikes. Foundry comes from the same guys who brought you Surly and Salsa and is a full line of Carbon Cyclocross, Road and Mountain bikes. Their moto is "It's a Tool Not a Trophy" and their bikes reflect this yeoman aesthetic. If you want flashy Euro-graphics then these aren't for you. Foundry is all about making great bang for the buck bikes that get the job done in a non-flashy way and yet offer future proof designs and amazing performance. These are bikes for the guys who sponsor themselves, race on Sundays and ride to work on Mondays. If they had bikes in a beer commercial it would be these.
In stock now is the Harrow which is their new Cross bike featuring 40 ton carbon, Disc Brakes and 15mm front axles. The 15mm is standard on better mountain bikes but new to cross and road. It allows one-handed wheel changes, is way stiffer and crucially, prevents your front disc brake from trying to yank your front wheel out of the dropouts. Some of the guys who designed these are bike mechanics so they are easy to work on with things like commons sense cable routing (meaning Barry won't rage putting them together). Anyone who's had to fish a shift or brake cable through a carbon frame and managed to not turn to drink will appreciate this.
The Harrow is available in 3 Kits and price points: Shimano 105 and Ultegra as well as full-on race SRAM Red. The 105 goes for 2999.99, the Ultegra 3599.99 and the Red at 4999.99.

Come by the shop for Wine, hors d'oeuvres, free prize draw, free maintenance seminars. Women on Wheels riding club will be there to promote their riding group. If you are looking for someone to ride with or want to learn more about bikes and riding, come check it out. Lots of Deals on Bikes and Gear.
