01/25/24: Checking out the Firestone bike park and pump track.

This week we took advantage of the warm temps and hit up the Firestone bike park just outside Longmont Co. It’s a fun little park, with a little something for everyone. The pump track is really fun, with basically 2 different lines, quick turns, and a tight track. (and it’s dry and clear now) The park has some jump lines and a skill building section as well. Overall a great little park for any skill level to enjoy!

Don’t let a little snow, keep you from riding your your bike.

Took a ride on the Boyd Lake section of the Loveland Loop the other afternoon. For those of you that aren’t aware. The paved bike paths in Loveland area are one of the first things to get plowed (snow removal). It’s usually done before most people get out n about. So don’t let a little snow keep you off the bike. Just dress warm, keep your rides shorter, and always look out for ice. This ride was a bit chilly, but once we got rolling, it was quite exhilarating!

Out Riding The Loveland loop

Took a ride out on a portion of the Loveland Loop trail, with a little bit of road yesterday. Wow! The rain has finally subsided and natures beauty is in full affect! The mountains are gorgeous, the wildflowers are starting to pop, and the green is just surreal. Truly a Colorful Colorado day…

Devils Backbone Open Space Area

Here’s a short video of Devils Backbone Open Space Area just outside of Loveland. Multi purpose trails for riding, hiking, running, equestrian and so forth. Very easy to get to, absolutely beautiful, and very well marked. If you get a chance, I would encourage a trip out there sometime!

Time to get out and ride!

I recently did a beautiful ride on part of the Loveland loop trail the other day. With all the rain this spring the grasses are getting crazy green, the flowers are starting to pop, and the snow cap mountains are making for a great back drop. The loop has many trail heads to start from all around the city. Here’s a quick link for more info. https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/colorado/loveland-recreation-trail-complete–2

Amazing service! I brought in a bike to be assembled at 1pm and he had it done in only a couple hours at an incredible price. He was super nice and accommodating too when it needed some adjustments after. I highly recommend. All around a fantastic experience and a great guy.

Joe Ken 3 months ago

Great and responsible guy I dropped off my electric bike to fix a wobbles tire and he got it done in the same day!

Amy C 05/05/2022

It’s 2022.
Tim posted a bike for sale that I have been looking for since 2001 or 2002.
He was amazing over the phone making sure this bike would fit me (I’m short, it’s a bike for short women). From previous yelp reviews and the way he spoke to me over the phone, I trusted him completely. I sent an online $ transfer without any concerns. Within a few days, the bike was packed, shipped, and he sent me the tracking number.  It arrived so well packaged, every part of the frame and components were exceptionally well protected.  I contacted him as soon as I got it and over the phone, he helped me reassemble the pedals, saddle,
handlebars, and brakes. I have truly waited 20 years searching weekly on line for this very rare bike. Tim made the transaction super easy and I am so grateful. Do NOT hesitate to buy a bike online from Tim. Fabulous! 

So weather it’s a new bike build, complete tune up/overhaul, or disassembly and ship, we can handled it all with fast, friendly service, and competitive pricing! Contact us now for an appointment and quick turnaround time.

I Finally was able to get out last week and get a MTB ride in over at Powder Canyon up in the Puente Hills Preserve. What a beautiful Place!

Mostly wide, fire/access roads, with some canopy cover at the lower part of the hill but you get quite exposed on the upper part of trails. Best for and early morning or later afternoon ride, hike or run. Super easy to get to, less then 15 minute drive from downtown Brea, and plenty of designated parking with no fee!
