    Got MIPS ???

    Posted on by Austin Howard in Bikes, New, Road Rides, Uncategorized | No Comments

    MIPS is a Swedish science and technology company focused on improving helmet safety to deal with the type of crashes we experience in the real world. The MIPS Brain Protection System is a helmet safety technology which significantly improves head protection in the event of a crash. When we fall, our head often impacts at an angle. This angular impact creates a rotation in the brain, which has been proven to have significant potential to cause brain damage. With MIPS, the helmet absorbs much of that damaging rotational energy, offering increased protection. MIPS has no effect on the traditional safety mechanism of the helmet, the Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), so the helmets EPS shell is left to do its job of absorbing radial impacts. How does it work? When the human head is subjected to an angled impact, the brain slides along a membrane on the inner surface of the skull. …

    REI is right – We OptOut

    Posted on by taylor in Events, New, Sales | No Comments

    REI is right, we OptOut. Biker’s Edge will be closed on Black Friday and open for Small Business Saturday. When we first read about REI closing for Black Friday we were intrigued.  They are a brand that encourages people to go out and explore the world around them, to be outside.  In a moment when it’s so easy to look at all the potential dollars rolling in on the biggest shopping day of the year, it can be easy to loose sight of that mindset.  But they didn’t.  They saw it as an opportunity to share their message to wider a audience. Is Biker’s Edge not the same? We have always strived to be a shop that promotes adventure-by-bike.  Whether your adventure is a Sunday ride with your family, commuting to work, exploring the mountains, or racing on the road bike, we want to support your adventure.  We encourage everyone …

    Holy Norco! Norco is now at B.E.!

    Posted on by taylor in Bikes, New | No Comments

    We’re stoked to announce that we are now a dealer for Norco!  We couldn’t be more excited, their bikes are packed with technology and are built by folks who love to ride.  You’ll definitely be seeing a lot more of Norco here at the Edge.  We currently have the Threshold (cyclocross), the Sasquatch and BigFoot (fat bikes), and the Range (mountain), so come on over and check them out. One of our favorite tech features on their mountain bikes is Gravity Tune.  If you’re a really tall or really short rider, you’re going to love this:   “With traditional frame designs, engineers adjust front-centre lengths for each frame size but use a single, fixed rear-centre length. This approach leaves riders of certain body types in a poor position when standing. Poor body position leads to uneven weight distribution and negatively affects traction, control and overall performance and ride characteristics. A …

    The Trainer that Changed Training.

    Posted on by taylor in Apparel and Accessories, New, Reviews, Shop | No Comments

    Winter is coming.  We all know what that means. Tortuous sessions in the basement with your bikes front wheel propped up on piles of unused phonebooks.  The TV is turned up as loud as it can go as you attempt to listen over the roaring trainer.  Your body feels tense from the extreme rigidness of the indoor trainer, and you wish for those summer days when you could ride on smooth, flexible asphalt, and feel the breeze in your hair once again.  But alas, you’re stuck in the basement as the snow trucks pummel eroding salt all over the roads. This is the unfortunate truth for many during the sad winter months.  That is unless you have discovered the joys of Fat Bikes, but lets leave that for another time. Many customers come to Biker’s Edge with questions on trainers, and we, as always, are happy to answer. Biker’s Edge …

    The Cageless Water Bottle

    Posted on by taylor in Apparel and Accessories, New | No Comments

    Gone are the days of the super expensive carbon water bottle cages.  No longer do we have to spend over a hundred dollars on carbon cages to keep our bikes lightweight.  Gone are the days of trying to match a bottle cage to your frame and not being happy with the selection. The struggle is over!  With this! The cageless water bottle from Fabric.  And we’re so stoked that we finally have these in stock!  These water bottles attach directly to the frame with two bolts.  The revolutionary cageless water bottle completely does away with the need for a cage by mounting directly to your frame. The ultralight-weight 1.5g studs are secure, remove unnecessary parts and improve the clean lines of your bike. The bottle and mounting system weigh drastically less than even the nicest bottle cages. The cageless water bottle slots on to lightweight mounts (1.5g each) that are secured to standard …
