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.

The Lazy Randonneur Offers Up Some Good Arguments For Casual Dress on the Bike

I enjoyed this post today by the Lazy Randonneur, Why dont I dress up like a trafficcone?

While I strongly agree with the sentiments to not dress up like a techno clown, I would argue that visibility is still quite an important thing to consider. I like to achieve visibility through bright front and rear lights installed on my bike that I run day and night, so that my clothing choice doesn’t matter and I’m visable even when I’m wearing street patterned camouflage.

Most of the time I wear dark colours cycling. Why dont I wear one of those traffic cone inspired bike outfits? This question has 3answers:

  • I mostly ride for transportation so I wear the clothes I would wear if I walked, drove or took a bus.
  • My risk assessment tells me street clothes are safe for cycling.
  • I want to promote cycling as something beyond a sporting activity or transportation for a select group of geeks.
