Welcome aboard, MAVIC and SPINERGY! (…say what?!)

You read it right… Hometown Bicycles is now a proud seller of Mavic and Spinergy wheels!

The decision to carry Mavic was an easy one. It’s simply the “World’s Best System Wheels”, offering the best performance, the best look and the best value. All of you cyclists out there riding atop Mavic wheels know exactly what I’m talking about!

These are the types of wheels you brag about to your friends, the types that make your rides ROCK, the types that you will fall in love with every single time you ride.

But wait! There’s more…

As if carrying Mavics wasn’t enough, Hometown Bicycles is also bringing on board another blow-your-socks-off brand of of wheels: Spinergy!

Although not yet as well known, Spinergy wheels are SWEET… custom colors, PBO Spoke Technology and hand-built right here in the USA. Spinergy is one of few companies that have the confidence to use their spoke technology in Motocross bikes. If that’s not strong, I don’t know what is.

So, what the heck is PBO anyway? Here’s the scoop…

PBO Fiber Spoke Technology – Available only from Spinergy

Spinergy engineers have invented a revolutionary technology for stronger, lighter and faster wheels. Introducing PBO Fiber Spoke Technology. Every PBO spoke contains over 30,000 strands of polyphenylene bensobisoxazole fiber, delivering 3-times the strength of stainless steel at just half the weight.

Giving you the ultimate edge

The PBO fiber strands are encased in a chemical resistant, water / UV proof composite offered in a variety of colors. The outcome is a flexible spoke with incredible strength that will absorb impact more efficiently while staying in true. Our patented PBO spokes are lighter than traditional steel spokes which results in less rotational weight and a faster responding wheel ’ giving you the ultimate edge. All this delivers a wheel that is lighter, stronger, faster and superior in every way.

Spinergy Stealth PBO in Blue

Here’s our Spinergy plan… over the next three weeks, we will be giving the PBO Stealth wheel-set a rigorous Hometown workup. Hometown’s “Buster”, David, is going to run an in-house, real world (a.k.a. on-good-‘ol-Michigan-roads), wheel trial to test out the new Stealth PBO. We’ll include his full report in our July e-Newsletter.

Jealous? Don’t be! Over the next few months, I will keep extra Mavic and Spinergy Demo wheels on hand that you can Try Before You Buy!

Ride on…

Shaun Bhajan, Hometown’s Head Honcho & Expert Mechanic
