Tailwind Racing - Island Lake Induction web page

…TO REPRESENT HOMETOWN BICYCLES at THIS WEEKEND’S crazy-popular Tailwind Race. Shaun and Dawn wanted to go, but there’s this little matter of having a baby any day now…

Hometown Bicycles is sponsoring (and riding in!) Tailwind’s Sunday, May 31st mountain bike race. Volunteer shifts run only about 3 hours, and come with some seriously cool perks. If you’re interested in being a Hometown ambassador, emailevents@myhometownbicycles.com ASAP for details. THANK YOU!!

HOMETOWN SERVICE = GREASED LIGHTNING!

Hometown Bicycles - Offering 48-hour turnaround on service with in-stock parts!

WE CAN GET YOU BACK ON YOUR BIKE WITHIN 48 HOURS!! You’re rarin’ to ride, but your bike’s got a boo-boo. You don’t want to be “grounded” for a week while it gets repaired, and we don’t want you to either.

That’s why we’re MIGHTY proud that – in the very thick of cycling season – we are STILL getting cyclists back in the saddle at warp speed. Our average turnaround? TWO DAYS with in-stock parts! Our biggest problem has become that we get ’em done faster than people can pick ’em up!

So, if you’re worried about being parted from your baby for painful periods of Michigan’s precious cycling season, don’t be because, at Hometown Bicycles, even if we have to stay up until midnight, we’ll get the work done FAST and it will be PHENOMENAL.

SORE KNEES? ACHING LOWER BACK? CHECK YOUR SADDLE HEIGHT!  Like any physical activity, your body will need time to adjust to cycling. But ongoing pain or discomfort is NOT RIGHT. Check out this video about one of the most common culprits in cyclist knee and lower back pain, what to look for, and how to fix it – courtesy of Vinnie Baylerian, PT, DPT of Pro-Motion Physical Therapy in Brighton.

Hometown Turns 5 Today!

TODAY, APRIL 15TH, HOMETOWN BICYCLES TURNS 5!  That’s 5 YEARS of getting you to your happy place on a bicycle… what a dream come true!!
Something this momentous requires celebrating, but we’re saving the big shin-dig for the impending grand opening of our new store. ‘Til then, take a stroll with us down memory lane to honor the business that’s making waves, making friends, and making history thanks to you wonderful, wonderful Hometownies…

Hometown Bicycles history

2010: A BUSINESS CONCEPT IS BORN  It all started with a relationship (ours – Shaun & Dawn), a need (for outstanding, speedy, anti-snob bicycle service), a vision (to blow people’s minds), and a tiny rental space in Brighton. (Above: Service shop before and after)

Hometown Bicycles history

2010: HOMETOWN BICYCLES OPENS FOR SERVICE  Mid-renovation, Shaun popped the question, and the soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. Shaun Bhajan officially opened the doors to Hometown Bicycles’ service shop. (Above: Dawn says “yes” and signage makes the business official)

Hometown Bicycles history

2011: WE INTRODUCE RETAIL  Customer demand made expansion into retail a natural next step, and after falling in love with Jamis Bicycles, we went for it… Hometown Bicycles tripled in size to bring you cool bikes and accessories. (Above: Retail shop before and after)

Hometown Bicycles history

2012: SHOP RIDES & CLINICS TAKE OFF  We were determined to be a cycling resource for our customers and community, so we launched rides and clinics open to all. (Above: Early shop ride and making ourselves visible from Grand River)

Hometown Bicycles history

2013: WE CREATE THE MOUNTAIN BIKE MARATHON  We built a bike course from scratch and created the wildly successful Hometown Bicycles Mountain Bike Marathon event – our first foray into race creation, and certainly not our last! (Above: Happy race volunteers)

Hometown Bicycles history

2014: WE BRANCH INTO A SECOND LOCATION  To spread the love, we opened a Hometown Bicycles satellite service center in Whitmore Lake. Although we recently moved this store’s operations back to Brighton in preparation for our big move, it remains a core piece of our shop heritage.(Above: Hometown Bicycles Whitmore Lake)

Hometown Bicycles history

2015: BIG OL’ CHANGES ARE UNDERWAY  This year, we’re taking on our biggest challenges to date – opening a 10,000 sq. ft. Bicycle Adventure Center and becoming parents. But then, we never did like to live small! (Above: Renovations are well underway, and so is our mini-Hometownie… both arrive this spring)

Hometown Bicycles history

The Future…  With you as customers, we can reach the stars. We’re privileged to have you as part of our continuing adventures, and will keep on keeping you in the loop as the awesomeness unfolds. (Above: The future home of Hometown Bicycles)

Thank you for making these past 5 years MAGICAL,

~ Shaun & Dawn
