Gifts For That Someone Special
New Bike Fitting with Motion Capture. $375. One of our most popular gifts and for good reason! Don’t just give your favorite someone a any bike, give them a new bike that is guaranteed to actually fit them well. Not all bikes fit all riders and the New Bike Fitting eliminates the guesswork and allows the rider to know for sure they are getting the ideal bike for their body and their needs. If you want to show that you really care, this is a nearly impossible gift to beat. A partial credit is even available from the New Bike Fit towards a new bike.
Garmin Edge 705 Deluxe GPS. $650. Trainer and navigator, the Edge 705 pushes the rider to do his or her best, then shows them the way back home. This GPS-enabled cycle computer knows no limits: heart rate, cadence, turn-by-turn directions, power data (from ANT+™-enabled third-party power meters) — the works. One can even share the data with other Edge 705 buddies after the ride. All wireless with a color display, this is no ordinary cycle computer.
Zipp 404 Wheels. Reg. $2200, now just $1699 a pair! Earn major bonus points with that cyclist in your life that likes to go fast (or at least look fast…). Or maybe at this price you can’t pass them up for yourself… We have them in clincher and tubular along with almost every other wheel Zipp, HED, Mavic and Easton offer. Upgrade that bike now and be ready for the new year.
Happy Holidays to everyone and just call or e-mail for more gift ideas or to order!
