Best Time to Tune Your Bike + Women’s Winter Classes

Hometown Bicycles' Service Tech Ozzy Aguilar working on a bike tune up
Q: SO, WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO GET A TUNE-UP?
A: A lot earlier than you would think…

…………………………………..

Hometownies, I know January has a way of seeping under your skin – the leafless trees, the chill winds, the desaturated skies. It all takes a toll on your zen.

A growing population of you are laughing in the face of this winter reality, thundering through the snowy trails on the Clydesdales of the bike world. But if winter cycling just isn’t your M.O., here’s a ray of sunshine to lift you out of survival mode…

We’re just 48 days away from the launch of Spring Cycling Season – March 1st!

Spring tulipWith that in mind, customers ask us with surprising frequency about the optimal time to bring their bikes in for a tune-up. The answer is… NOW!

50 days will already disappear like smoke, but remember last year, when Spring made a cameo appearance in February? Guess who beat the rush of suddenly urgent tune-up requests, and got to hit the roads and trails before everyone else? You guessed it… the early bird cyclists, whose new year prep primed them for first dibs!

In Michigan, you should tune-up with the Boy Scouts motto in mind: “Be Prepared.”

Again, 48 days left ’til Spring Cycling Season… 
48 days!

That’s nothin’ – a handful of “Hump Day”s, a pittance of paydays, a smidgen of snowfalls… peanuts. Don’t get caught short – you deserve to enjoy every glorious moment.


5 Foot Passing Legislation is in Jeopardy - take action!
4 DAYS LEFT TO HELP MAKE MI SAFER FOR CYCLISTS!
Hometownies, here’s a cause worth signing for! From League of MI Bicyclists (LMB):

Legislation to enact a statewide 5-foot passing law is in danger in the House and we need your help! A specified distance (5-feet) could be stripped out of the legislation if we don’t speak up now.

The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee will likely act on HB 4265 on January 16, 2018. We need your help to urge committee members to keep a specific distance in the bill to enact the strongest safe passing law possible. Click below or visit www.LMB.org/engage for details and to sign.

Happy New Year from Your Hometown Crew!

Happy New Year 2018, Hometownies!
FROM YOUR HOMETOWN CREW:
We’re so glad to be on this side of 2018 with you – where the possibilities and adventures are laid out ahead in a trail of glory…

We wish you a year of pedal-powered accomplishments, growth, and happiness!

…………………………………..

Resolutions aside, you’ve probably noticed that your bike shop is growing up. Hometown has grown from a fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants service hang-out to the best bike shop in Southeast Michigan (your words, not… oh, who are we kidding – we feel that way, too!)

The realities of running a sustainable and mind-blowing business are challenging… but not a bummer. We have a long-term vision of becoming your ultimate, one-stop bicycling resource, so the hard work is continually justified. YOU justify it.

I hear every day the most heartwarming show of support ever from customers who tell me how PROUD they are of what WE have created here at Hometown.

But do you understand the role that YOU have played? Take credit, Hometownies!! Everything from your inner tube purchase, to ride participation, to bike buy, to online review, to referral to friends and family – THAT is what makes us a success. If we’re doing it right, you’re PROUD to shout from the rooftops that Hometown is YOUR bike shop.

So come in – let us know how your Christmas went, and what YOUR vision is for Hometown. Your input has as much relevance as ours!

In the meantime, here are some opportunities for you to enjoy extracurricular, winter value from your bike shop – Team membership, bike clinics, fitness classes, and shop rides. Enjoy them with our thanks. We look forward to pedaling through 2018 together!


Members of Team Hometown Bicycles 2017 and '18
TEAM HOMETOWN – STILL ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!
If you missed Team Night… major bummer, because it was an absolute blast. But you still have the chance to enjoy events, just as amazing, as a member of our Team!

We’re accepting Team applications all the way up through our big Potluck Party on March 1st. Our Team is already nearly 70 strong, with a wonderful mix of new and familiar faces, and riders of all types and skill levels. We’d love to welcome you aboard!

To learn more about becoming a member of Team Hometown Bicycles 2018, contact our Ride Coordinator, Laura, at ride@myhometownbicycles.com.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, Hometownies!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Hometown Bicycles

HOMETOWN BICYCLES HOLIDAY HOURS:

 
Christmas Eve  |  9AM – 3PM
Christmas Day through New Year’s Day  
|  CLOSED
Monday, January 2nd  |  9AM – 9PM (regular hours)

We wish you and your family and friends enough holiday cheer to last the year round, and all the bike time you can wrangle out of a hectic holiday schedule!

See you next year, Hometownies!

Christmas *GULP!* Countdown

Hometown Bicycles bike shop gifts, novelties, bicycles, parts, accessories, and more decorated for Christmas

5 DAYS LEFT – BUT THEN, YOU ALREADY KNEW THAT…
The way I see it, you’re likely in one of three states: panic, smug satisfaction, or mid-mayhem. Happily, we have just the thing for each!

If a five-day countdown gives you the cold sweats, breathe! We carry everything from bikes to bottle cages, and t-shirts to travel mugs. There are gift certificates and tune-up certificates for the impossible-to-shop-for, and we’re open right up to 3pm on Christmas Eve. Everybody loves riding a bike (well, almost everyone, but don’t worry – they’re working on a cure!) So, guaranteed happiness with one-stop shopping. Crisis. Averted.

If you’re still tracking down stocking stuffers and add-on presents, you’ll be good to go with our keychains, bottle openers, Gu and Hammer nutrition, CO2 pumps, winter gloves, bike lube, magnets, bike lights, shot glasses, and the hundred and one other pint-sized goodies for fun, bike-ish finishing touches.

If you’re patting yourself on the back for beating the rush, come out and celebrate with a winter ride on one of our rental fat bikes or – yahooo!! – reward yourself with one of your own! Treat yourself to that bike computer you’ve been oggling, or that pair of winter riding boots your feet have been begging for. Just consider us your “I rock!” celebration center.


CHRISTMAS ORDERS & HOURS

Hometown Bicycles under the Christmas Tree

The final day to place ANY order for Christmas arrival has come… aaaannd gone. But a belated present is better than NO present, so we’re happy to be your last-minute Santa’s elf!

CHRISTMAS HOURS:

OPEN: Christmas Eve  9AM – 3PM
CLOSED: Christmas Day – January 1st  

We’ll reopen January 2nd, normal hours!

Hometown Bicycles Service Tech, Matthew Persha

WHAT THE “PERSHA” IS & WHY YOU SHOULD ASK FOR IT!

Shaun and I believe strongly that it’s important for Hometown Crew to understand more about business than just work-go-home-repeat. Upping our Crew’s business I.Q. adds value to our customers’ experience, supports the long-term goals of the shop, and gives our guys and gals real-world insights that benefit THEM, too – an especially great thing for our school-age crew members!

For this week and next, Service Tech and high school cyclist Matt Persha has cooked up a promotion for all of you Hometownies, and we’re giving him the opportunity to spearhead his own creation! You’ll spot his marketing efforts on social media and elsewhere, but here’s the gist of what we’ve dubbed the “PERSHA Promotion”:
………………………………..

Mention “PERSHA”
when you bring your bike in for a Hometown Bicycles Tune-Up
between 11/27/17 – 12/10/17,
and receive an emailed coupon after you pick up your tuned bike for
10% OFF ANY ONE ITEM
– bicycle, part, or accessory, including special orders –
to use at your next purchase.*
*Offer ends 12/10/17. Cannot be combined with other promotions. Not applicable on labor or past purchases.
………………………………..
Want to support Matt’s learning experience? Those bikes you’ve been meaning to get tuned and prepped for winter storage or cycling… bring them in now! Thanks for encouraging the next generation of cycling industry enthusiasts!

Hometown Bicycles Novemberfest highlights

NOW THAT’S HOW TO DO A NOVEMBERFEST!   

Bet you didn’t know that fat bikes and chili make a perfect partnership! Or maybe you do, if you came to last Saturday’s 2nd Annual Hometown Bicycles Novemberfest! It was bigger, fatter, and even more scrumptious than last year’s event.

We unveiled Hometown’s limited edition Beartrax full suspension fat bike to a highly appreciative crowd. Fat bike demos kept our fatties rollin’ all day. Over 35 riders joined us for our Novemberfest Fat Bike Friendly Ride through Island Lake. And the Chili Cook-off deliciously capped off the evening with warm, sweet, savory, and spicy entries from 15 Hometown crockpot masters. Our thanks to everyone who rallied to Shaun’s chili challenge, and congrats to John Nelson, whose sweet ‘n mild entry was emptied almost as soon as it hit the table!

Olga, goddess of desserts, your sweet addition to our event had us Hometownies swarming around the dessert counter! Thanks for the delicious wrap-up to a wonderful evening!

2018 Novemberfest plans are already in the works, and Shaun’s plotting out new recipe strategies to out-chili next year’s competition. You have a year to thwart his attempts, Hometownies, so perfect those chili recipes now!!
