Notes from our Service Lab - The Smart Bike Washer and our March Service Special

If you missed out on our Winter Overhaul special, do not worry, we’re ready with a great deal to get your bikes ready for Spring! Unique to the local cycling area, we are now using a special parts cleaning machine that for one, is much more healthy for our service technicians and our shop air space, but also is environmentally friendly for you, our cycling friends.  The Smart Bike Washer uses a process called bioremediation and Ozzy literally eats the grease! 

Here’s a little more about that.

 A proven leader in the parts washing industry and made in the U.S.A., the patented bioremediating SmartWasher® is safe to use, cost effective and extraordinarily strong – the ultimate solution to parts washing. The SmartWasher systems employ a natural process called bioremediation to eliminate liquid hazardous waste streams, reduce the release of harmful pollutants and increase employee safety while washing parts. The patented systems combine three essential components: the SmartWasher, the parts washer, with a powerful water based degreasing solution called OzzyJuice®, along with a microbe impregnated particulate trap called an OzzyMat. The merging of these three remarkable products not only defines the SmartWasher® system but also produces one truly amazing smart washer.

 We've been using this machine since early December 2013 and it's very impressive. It works amazingly well to clean grease with minimal effort involved in cleaning. The grease comes right off with some light brushing. No foul smell in our shop, or on our clothes, or harmful chemicals entering our lungs either. -comments from our shop guys, Jud & Steve. The shop guys have been seen competing for cleaning bikes as they come in it works so well and they're that excited about it.

For the month of March, we are offering our Pro Tune up and Drive Train cleaning service special, normally the labor charge for the combined service items would be $150. Save Fifty Bucks and get the whole deal for $100 labor. Plus, you can also take -15% off any parts you might need to get the bike ready for riding. Whether it be brake or shift cables, cable housing, chains, cassettes, tires, tubes, bar tape or grips...during the tune up special save 15%. 

Enjoy those last few days of Winter while you can, but bring your bikes down before the Spring rush. We're stocked up and ready to get your bikes dialed in for the warm weather that will be here before you know it.
