The long summer and unseasonably warm fall weather has been nice but down here at the shop we like our winter sports just as much as the summer ones and November is the time of the year when we can really start thinking about the snow starting to fly.
We have got all of our new Nordic and Alpine Ski equipment out and the floor, along with all your cool weather cycling needs, hats, gloves, jackets, tights, and shoe covers. We’ve got some great deals to help keep you warm as the temps drop.
Whether you prefer breaking your own trail right out of your back door or a perfectly groomed corduroy skate lane we have got the skis for you. Classic waxless cruising skis from Fischer and Salomon, sportier waxless and waxable classic skis from Fischer, and skate skis ranging from those just getting into the sport to those looking to move up a wave at the Birkie.
Boots from Salomon and Fischer, starting with classic cruising style on the bottom and working up to the higher end Combi (skate and classic) and Skate style only boots.
Men’s, Women’s, and Jr, Alpine Skis from Salomon. We carry skis that are well suited for midwest groomers as well as those that will start to allow you to explore some deeper, less skied routes out West.
Skiing not your thing, no worries you can keep pedaling with a go-anywhere fat tire bike. With models starting as low as $850, fat bikes are increasing in abundance and decreasing in cost. Offering tires ranging from 3.6″-5.0″ wide fat bikes excel in terrain where other bikes flounder. Snow, sand, or no trail at all, there aren’t many places a fat bike can’t go. We carry fat bikes from Surly, Specialized, and Raleigh.

With temperatures in the single digits and a luxurious mix of slick ice and rock hard snow covering the ground, it’s the perfect time for a Big Sale on Specialized fat bikes.
The BIG FAT WINTER SALE lasts the month of January, applies to 2016 Specialized fat bikes aka the Fatboy and Hellga models, and applies for both in-stock bikes and bikes we order during January.
The prices are listed below, and we are offering an additional 50% of the “SAVINGS” total in free accessories. For example, if Jane Biker bought a Hellga Expert, she would save $501 off the Original MSRP and would get an additional $250.50 in free accessories.
We have lots of Specialized fat bikes in stock, and we can always order bikes we don’t have, so come try one out and show Iowa winter who’s boss this January.
