Open House - 2014

We’re Havin’ a Party!

Once again, we’ve reached that “most wonderful time of the year”.  It’s the holiday season, and Christmas is almost here.  For the 40th time, Pedal Power Bike & Ski is holding our annual Open House, and you’re invited. 

          Date: Sunday December 21

          Time: 1-5pm

          Place: Pedal Power Bike & Ski

We’re happy that many old friends drop in to visit.  But if you’re a new friend, we’d love to see you too.  And if you’ve never even heard of us before, this will be the perfect time for your first visit.  Come on by for live entertainment, food, goodies, cider, eggnog and fun.

Hope to see you Sunday,

Joyce, John & the Gang at Pedal Power

Electra - The Bike for Everyone Else

Just in time for Christmas comes Electra.

Don’t think of yourself as a cyclist?  A bit concerned about your balance?  Never felt comfortable on a bike when your feet can’t touch?  Got a significant other you just can’t hook on cycling?  Maybe your youngster’s having trouble learning to ride on two wheels.  Or maybe you’re just looking for cool styling.  We’ve got the bike for you – Electra. 

Start with comfort and control.  Electra has the patent for it. The Townie introduced Electra’s patented Flat Foot Technology® to the world and it was love at first sight. It created a completely different riding experience, with an upright seating position that lets you see the world better and place your feet flat on the ground whenever you want.  Many Electra adult and kid’s bikes feature Flat Foot Technology, setting a new standard in comfort and control.

Now add the styling.  No one can touch Electra on that.  You want colors, we’ve got colors.  You want flowers, we’ve got flowers.  You want flames, we’ve got flames.  You’ll have to see ‘em to believe ’em.

Come in today and see for yourself.

X-C Skiing at Pedal Power

Acton, Concord, Carlisle, Westford, Chelmsford and Harvard may never look like this, but we do have lots of open areas, and we do get snow.  Cross Country (XC) skis can turn any golf course, lawn or backyard into a ski area without the long drive or expensive lift ticket.  (But we can actually help you with that too.  Pedal Power has discount Sugarbush anytime lift tickets.)   

Pedal Power Bike & Ski is uniquely positioned to get you XC skiing now; we've been doing it for over 30 years.  And we've just received an extensive stock of 2014/15 Salomon XC boots, bindings, skis, and poles, to go along with winter activewear from Salomon, Garneau, Bontrager and Specialized.  The fit and quality of Salomon XC boots are unparalleled, their bindings give the best support and control in the industry, and their skis are superior.  Right now we have equipment for folks of all ages, sizes, and skill levels. 

Why not try the sport that helps you look forward to winter?

P.S.  No time to shop, or unsure of the sizes?  We can solve that problem with a Pedal Power XC Gift Certificate.

Get Fit Now

You may be riding much less because of the colder weather, but surprisingly, this may be the perfect time of year to take your cycling to the next level.  How?  Get a Pro Bike Fit from Pedal Power Bike & Ski. 

We’ve been using our revolutionary Guru Dynamic Fit Unit for almost a year.  It’s unique*, and it’s great (really!).  But guess what?  The system doesn’t make the fit.  A great fit still requires a great fitter. 

At Pedal Power we’ve had a serious interest in fitting for decades.  We acquired an ultra-adjustable Eliteknik fitting cycle in 1977.  We began using the FitKit system almost 30 years ago, and some of our suggestions have been incorporated into it.  In 2008 we began using the computerized, laser-based BodyScanning CRM system.  In 2009 we were certified in the new Body Geometry Fit Integration Technology (BG F.I.T.) method developed and taught in conjunction with Dr. Andy Pruitt and the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine.  In 2010 we attended Trek U Fit System training under Michael Sylvester, the fitter selected to fit President George Bush.  We attended their new courses again in 2012 and 2014.  This year we were also certified in Dan Empfield’s F.I.S.T protocol.  We have attended both of the SICI world symposia on fitting, technology and medicine in Colorado, the only bike shop in New England to do so.

Folks we've fitted have ridden in the Pan-Mass Challenge and Paris-Brest-Paris, and won age group national championships. Of course most of the people we fit just enjoy tooling around in the area. 

But our greatest asset as fitters, is that we actually listen to you.  A good fit is the result of an intelligent collaboration between the rider and the fitter.  We’ll ask about your current and ultimate cycling plans as well as physical issues and problems.  And, when we make a fit alteration, we’ll ask for your feedback on it. We’re never satisfied until you are.

* The GURU system uses a 3D camera to capture instant remote body measurements with, no touch, no markers, no stick-on sensors.  Five remote controlled motors instantly change all aspects of your position, letting you feel the exact fit and compare it with an unlimited number of others.  We can simulate riding uphill or downhill so you can see how your selected fit feels on different terrain.  We can rapidly switch handlebars, saddles, and virtual stems, but the system also includes adjustable cranks, so that we can confirm the crank length you have, or determine that you need a change.

Need Sharpening?

Get ready for the snow at Pedal Power Bike & Ski!

Don't travel miles looking for top-notch service for your skis and boards.  Now you can bring your winter gear to the same folks you've trusted with your bikes for years.  Using our hi-tech Montana sharpening and waxing machines, we can give you the first class results you want right here at Pedal Power.

And while you're here, you can pick up discount lift tickets for Sugarbush.

GURU Dynamic Fitting

GURU Dynamic Fitting Pedal Power Bike & Ski 2014 Acton MA

The GURU is Here!

Pedal Power Bike & Ski has received and installed our revolutionary Guru Dynamic Fit Unit, Gen 2.  You’ve never seen anything like it.  You’ve never FELT anything like it!  It incorporates Dan Empfield’s F.I.S.T system, and we’ve just completed our certification in that protocol.

This brand new Gen 2 Guru system uses a 3D camera to capture instant remote body measurements, with no touch, no markers, no stick-on sensors.

Five remote controlled motors instantly change all aspects of your position, letting you feel the exact fit and compare it with an unlimited number of others. You can compare multiple sizes and multiple models without ever dismounting from the bike.  No other fit system is motorized (GURU has the patent), so no other fit system can change positions as rapidly.  You don’t have to try to remember how a position felt 2 or 5 or 8 minutes ago, we just toggle among them.

The system allows us to change incline or decline (simulating uphills and downhills) to see how your selected fit feels on different terrain, and includes a Computrainer, to test your fit under different loads.  And of course it also includes adjustable cranks, so we can exactly simulate the bike you have, or determine that you need a change.

This system is so new, major modules that expand the capabilities are being added as we speak.

Be the first kid on your block … sorry, sorry … be the first rider in your group to experience the Ultimate GURU Fit.
