Bike Shop Hub Center:

The business and work culture of Bike Shop Hub in all it's glory.

When we have new products, sales, weird marketing ideas, commentary on the cycling industry, or embarrasing photos of of the staff, this is where you'll find it.

And since we are located in Arizona, we'll talk about the cycling scene in the state.

Join the conversation.

Send In Your Cycling Photos

We get to see and touch and test all sorts of great cycling gear here at our world headquarters. But we actually get to meet very few of our customers in person.

We just know you are out there taking pictures of your amazing cycling adventures. We want to see them! The best ones will be shared on the relevant section of this blog: Bike Cargo Trailers, Bike Touring, Bike Technology and Family Cycling.

Grand Opened!

Thanks everyone for coming out last weekend to our grand opening. We had a good crowd test riding the e bike lineup, checking out the new showroom and enjoying the refreshments.

Bike Shop Hub’s Grand Opening – This Saturday at Noon!

We’ve had a windy and wet Bike-To-Work week here in Flagstaff. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the warm weather comes back as predicted this weekend for our showroom Grand Opening.

The Showroom Grand Opening starts at Noon at our Downtown location at 120 E. Phoenix Ave.

We’re featuring our lineup of Electric Bikes by A2B, Hebb, Ohm, Kalkhoff and Urbana. Our showroom displaying all the good stuff at BikeTrailerShop.com, BikeBagShop.com and BikeKidShop.com is all setup. We’ll have Fratelli’s Pizza, the obligatory Grand Opening sheet cake, music, free t-shirts to the first 50 arrivals, good music and good times.

So come on out at noon on Saturday!

A Windy Bike To Work Week… How About An E-bike?

We’re having quite the windy Bike-To-Work Week as often happens this time of year in Flagstaff. For cyclists with long commutes that are often into the wind, electric bikes can be a great way to make regular bike commuting more feasible.

This is one of the many reasons we are introducing a lineup of electric bikes into Flagstaff with our Grand Opening on Saturday, May 21st at noon. Come on by for electric bike demo rides and lots more!

Electric bikes are really one of those things that you need to try to appreciate. Just yesterday both our programmer Frank and my wife took e-bike commutes home. By the end of the ride, they were both very excited how the electric boost helped them out on a very windy day.

Flagstaff Commuter Snapshots

Bike-To-Work week is next week and with that in mind, I thought I’d post up a some snapshots of riders riding around Flagstaff this spring. Check out Flagstaff Biking for the full rundown on Bike-To-Work week participation and events. We are proud to be a co-sponsor of this years events and will be active in many of the events and providing plenty of coverage both here and at CommuteByBike.com.

Thorn Tandem Parking at the Radisson

My wife and I enjoy going on weekend tandem rides that wrap up with dinner at some location not to far from our house. Last weekend we went to Sakura a Tepanyaki restaurant at the Radisson Hotel. Not surprisingly, they didn’t offer their guests any bike parking. The stair railing turned out to be a good solution and I thought made for an interest photo.

BONGOing at the Home Depot

Last weekend Melanie and I were using one of the handiest features of the Wandertec BONGO Bike Trailer. We flipped up the handle up the hitch arm in order to get it to function as a handle. We were unsure of how many flowers and other items we were going to be able to fit into it and it made more sense to just load it directly in the store.
