WE ARE MOVING!
Our tentative move date is early February, 2014. Stay informed here or on our Facebook page, we'll be posting the details as soon as we have them! In the meantime, here's a sneak preview of our new digs!
Cupertino Bike Shop
Thinking of buying a new bicycle? One of your first choices, and not necessarily an easy one, will be where to shop. It can be a challenge because there are a myriad of stores that carry two-wheelers, from specialty retailers, to giant department stores.
Where you buy, however, has everything to do with what you get. You see, bicycles aren't like toasters or suitcases. Bikes are shipped in boxes and they must be assembled and tuned.
There are many types, too, and you should never buy until you've figured out which is right for you. Measurements and adjustments are required to ensure the frame is the correct size and that the seat and handlebars are properly positioned. And, every new bicycle will need a minor tune-up after several weeks of use.
What's more, modern road and mountain bikes can travel at high speeds and carry you over demanding terrain where the machine's materials and construction get tested. A quality two-wheeler, carefully assembled and fit to you, will be the safest, most durable and fun bicycle to ride.
For these reasons, we strongly recommend shopping at a good specialty bicycle store like Cupertino Bike Shop. For instance, we hire competent salespeople and expert mechanics who'll ensure that you get the right bike and a quality machine. Our store is clean, has helpful personnel, offers a good selection, and an on-site repair department.
We hold clinics that cover the basics of bicycle maintenance: flat repair, roadside needs - a 'hands-on' workshop. Clinics are held the first and third Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m.. Call Shannon to reserve your place.
Silicon Valley Triathlon Club has teamed up with Road ID (the leader in safety identification and reflective gear for endurance athletes) to make sure our members are safer while training and competing.
