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.

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.

Arkel Bike Bags On Closeout

arkel-GT54-thorn-tandem-cropWe are closing out all Arkel Panniers, Handlebar Bags and Seat bags. This is a great opportunity to get some great Canadian made bike bags at low prices while supplies last. Arkel is know for great quality sewn bags.

I enjoyed testing a set of Arkel GT-54′s mounted on a Thorn Tandem during a bike tour last fall.

When comparing non-waterproof panniers like Arkel to waterproof panniers like Ortlieb panniers, we always point out the advantages of sewn bags in that they have quite a bit more organization than waterproof panniers because it is much more feasible for zippers, pockets and other features to be sewn in. The downside is that for waterproof protection, additional rain covers are required.
