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

    We want to take a moment to let you know how thankful we are for having you as a customer. Here are a few ways we hope to make your Thanksgiving holiday special. As you know, we are joining REI in Opting Outside for Black Friday – we will not be open for sales on Nov. 27th.  Instead we’ll be doing something a little different… We’ll be using this as an opportunity to bring the cycling community together to provide warm clothing and shoes for children in need this winter.  We’ll have a free pancake breakfast on Nov. 27th (Black Friday) at 8:00am at Biker’s Edge, followed by large group rides! We’ll have a few differently paced groups – everyone is encouraged to ride!  Rain or Shine… or snow! This event is going to happen! Bring your friends! There will be no raffle. Instead we’ll be donating the money we would have used …

    The Product I Can’t Live Without is…

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

    In every discipline of every hobby, there is one product that stands out to an individual.  A certain fly in fishing, a certain boot in skiing, and in cycling each person has their own I-can’t-live-without product.  We’ve decided to look into this phenomenon and find what our employees can’t live without.  Over the next few weeks we’ll be publishing posts about the one product that each employee can’t live without.  Its a pretty hard task to try and think of the one bike product that you can’t live without. Think about it? Whats the ONE product you can’t imagine going on rides without? You can only pick one. We started by asking our resident commuter, Eric, what that product was.  He had to take a few days to think about it and came back to us with what seems like a good answer for him.  You see Eric commutes everywhere …

    Garmin’s Varia Rearview Radar – A Whole New Level of Safe

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

    Varia Rearview Radar – the new smart safety technology rolling out of Garmin Cycling.  The Varia is a a light system that attaches to the seatpost of the bike facing vehicles that are approaching from behind the rider.  The light communicates wirelessly to the Garmin Edge 1000 or Varia Head Unit.  As a vehicle approaches behind the rider, a light will appear on the riders Edge 1000 or Varia head unit.  The device can even notify you of multiple cars up to 153 yards away PLUS the relative speed of those vehicles – and you never have to turn your head. As the vehicle gets closer, the light brightens and the intensity of the flashes increase to insure the vehicle is well aware of your presence. Here is a video of shop owner, Zach, testing this out. Here’s what he has to say about his expererience: “With no car behind …

    The 2016 Biker’s Edge Kit

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

    The completely redesigned 2016 Biker’s Edge Kit by Hyperthreads. $75 Jersey    –    $100 Bibs When we started to think of what we wanted for our new kit, we knew it had to be something completely different than anything we’d ever done before.  After many generations of Castelli kits, we made the decision that the fit no longer worked for the majority of our customers or us.  We started to search for a new company that could get us superior material, with a better fit, and without having to make us raise the price of the kit. After looking at many fabric samples, many chamois samples, and a plethora of other criteria.  We found one company that was superior in all categories – Hyperthreads.  Hyperthreads is a new cycling clothing company based in Ogden, UT and they use only the best materials from around the world.  We were very impressed with …

    Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 Review

    Posted on by Bo in Bikes, Reviews | 2 Comments

    Austin has been throwing his Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 around and has some great things to say about it. Rider info Name: Austin Howard Height: 5’8 (in the morning) 5’7 ¾ (at the end of the day) Weight: 132 Years Riding: 2 Early this year, Cannondale chose to launch their 2015 Trigger 27.5 and Jekyll mountain bikes. These two bikes were the first 27.5in wheel-sized bikes introduced from Cannondale. I was excited to see the Jekyll be released to public after seeing Jerome Clementz riding and racing (and winning!) on it. The Jekyll was completely redesigned from the previous year, featuring an updated geometry and a new version of the Fox DYAD rear shock, 67 Degree head angle 74.9 seat angle for climbing efficiency and their all new 160mm Dyad in Flow Mode, and their 95mm Elevate Mode. With all this the bike sounded like a riot to ride. This April, …

    Cannondale Trigger 27.5 Carbon 2 with a touch of Greek

    Posted on by Bo in Bikes, New, Reviews | No Comments

    Our man, Dallin Groneman, has been spending some time on the Cannondale Trigger 27.5 Carbon 2.  Here’s what he has to say, hope you like a little Greek history… Cannondale Trigger Carbon 2 27.5: So Efficient, Even Achilles Would Ride It. As I mounted the fine steed rightly named the Trigger that Cannondale released for 2015, I was with an apathetic opinion. I had long been familiar with Cannondale’s suspension, using the Fox Dyad RT2 rear shock on the Jekyll, and had thus far been impressed; however, with little experience in the Over-Mountain idea of a bicycle, I had no solid opinion on the matter. This all changed, however, as I began my first serious ride for an incredibly extended period of time, charging up a local trail known for its steep climbing grade. I flipped the switch for shorter travel on the Trigger’s handlebar, and felt the bike kick …

    Taylor’s Cannondale Evo

    Posted on by zach in Road Rides, Shop, Uncategorized | 2 Comments

    Here’s another employee review of Taylor’s Cannondale Evo. 2013 Cannondale Supersix Evo Red Frame Size: 56cm Shifters: Sram Red Derailleurs: Sram Red Cassette: 11-28 Crank: Cannondale/SRAM carbon Wheels: Enve 8.9 Tubular’s Tires: Vittoria Corsa Evo Tubular Saddle: Selle Italia SLR Flow Weight: 14.85 (with the 8.9’s & without pedals) Pedals: Ultegra Carbons The first time I ever rode a Cannondale Supersix Evo (henceforth known as Evo) was last year on the 2012 model. I immediately was drawn to how powerful I felt on this bike. The bike feels like it wants to sprint – which is does effortlessly (as shown by Peter Sagan). I remember taking it on my classic weekday route filled with Strava segments, most of which were climbs. This bike climbed with such confidence and with such ease that I felt like a much better rider than I really was. Can a bike give you a better …

    Logan’s Santa Cruz Blur TRc

    Posted on by zach in Bikes, Reviews, Shop | 2 Comments

    Here’s another of the BE employee bikes, Logan’s Santa Cruz Blur TRc Description: The Santa Cruz Blur TR carbon is a 5″ travel (125mm) bike designed for trail riding. The travel and frame weight (5lbs with shock) suit the cross country crowd, while the head angle (68 degrees) and bottom bracket height (13.1 inches, static) indicate the bike was designed for much more aggressive riding than your typical 5″ trail bike. It is also available in an aluminum frame. My build: Frame: Santa Cruz Blur TRc Fork: Rockshox Lyrik RC2 DH, set at 130mm travel Rear Shock: Rockshox Monarch Plus RC3 Drivetrain: Shimano XT Brakes: Shimano XT Bar: ENVE DH Wheelset: ENVE AM Tires: Maxxis Ardent EXO (2.4 front, 2.25 rear) The ride: This is the kind of bike you really just have to ride to understand what it is capable of.
