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.

We can’t tell you the prices unless you ask

It’s not a gimmick. We really can’t advertise our inventory reduction prices. It would make the manufacturers unhappy (and we don’t like to make them unhappy).

Here’s what you do:

1. Go to the inventory reduction page on any of our specialty shops, such as:

2. Find something you like. (You will.)

3. Click the link that says “Reduced Pricing Available.”

Use the form to tell us you’d like to know the inventory reduction price, and we will e-mail it to you instantly.

If instantly is longer than you can wait, then call us.

Ten Ways to Promote the Wandertec Tuba Bike Trailer

We have mere days to go to fully fund the Kickstarter Project for the Wandertec Tuba Bike Trailer.

Currently we have just over one-third of the $25,000 we need to raise.

If you’ve already pledged, the only way to get your rewards will be if the project is fully funded.

To see these trailers on the streets, on bike paths, and behind your bike, here are some things you can do.

Ten Ways to Promote the Wandertec Tuba Bike Trailer:

  1. Pledge — at any amount
    Every pledge gets us closer to our goal.
  2. Pledge Again

  3. Promote the Tuba on Facebook
    Are you on Facebook or Twitter? Of course you are. Here’s how.
