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.

Riding Our Thorn Tandem through the Yellow

We’ve just launched a couple of nice fall specials at the Bike Trailer Shop.

Xtracycle has authorized us to sell Xtracycles FreeRadical Kits for $399. This a great opportunity to get an incredible deal on an Xtracycle through November 2nd. And we also just put up an offer for a Free Wandertec SAX – BOB Trailer Liner with the purchase of a BOB Yak or Ibex Trailer. This sale also runs through November 2nd.

We’ve been enjoying some great Fall weather riding here in Flagstaff. My girlfriend and I took a ride around the San Francisco peaks among the aspens last weekend. We’ve been taking out our new Thorn Tandemjosh-and-melanie-with-thorn-tandem-peaks which we’ve been enjoying as a great all-purpose machine. So far we’ve used it for bike touring, trail riding, road riding and dirt road riding. With its S and S couplers we’ve been able to take it apart and travel by plane with it. The Rohloff hub has been perfect for tandeming, allowing easy shifting even under the rigors of mountain bike and touring tandeming.

    Really excited to see an American with a Thorn Double Marathon Rohloff Tandem. What size is it? How wide are the tires? Does the Thudbuster “pogo” too much? Did you have just the frame or the complete bike sent over?

      Thanks for the comments Brian. It tis a great bike and we have really enjoyed it’s stoutness, versatility and being able to travel with it.

      We’ve got the Large/Small frame. 26″ x 2.0″ Schwalbe Marathon XRs. Thudbuster is well appreciated by my girlfriend and she doesn’t mind the pogo for the benefits. We did have the complete bike sent over.
