HOT WEATHER RIDING

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.  While riding inland away from the cooler bay air, I found myself running low on water in 30 c + heat.  An extra bottle in the back of your jersey is a good idea on longer hot day rides, that is what the pockets are for in the back of the bike jerseys.  I also found that putting a full water bottle or 2 in the freezer helps to cool things down or get an insulated water bottle.  If you are on an extra long ride a hydration pack may be helpful to keep the H2O flowing. If you are on a really long ride take some electrolytes along in a gel pack, or chews, or an electrolyte drink mix in your water bottle to replenish your salt loss through sweat. Some gels and blocks have extra sodium in them. Stay hydrated.

Taking care of you and your bike, skates, and skis

Sometimes things don't work the way you want. We don't like that so we try to fix it.  A basic adult bike tune up is $45.99 and a single speed or children's bike tune up starts at $25.99. We cover the manufacturer's warranty on all our products.

Also we completely tune, sharpen, and wax downhill skis and snowboards for a labor charge of $29.99 + tax.

XC Ski Wax labour is $20.00 + tax per pair.

Installation of Bindings on XC Skis is $15.00 + tax.

Cutting poles is $15.00 + tax.

Professional Bike Fit

If you are looking for a professional fit for you and your bike, call (506) 640-0777. Arrange a fit with Bill or Peter who has completed their Specialized fit course. Allow for 2 hours and there will be a charge for this service, but the fit is free if you buy your bike from us.


Skate Sharpening

We have a great Cag 1 skate sharpening machine that does an excellent job and it is only $6.00 taxes included.  You can purchase a skate sharpening card for $25.00 and get 5 sharpenings for $5.00 each instead of $6.00 each.
