Get Your GURU Fit On - Spring 2017

Why YOU Need A GURU Fit from Pedal Power

Spring is finally here, and this could be the perfect time of year to take your cycling to the next level.  We have two suggestions.  One great way would be getting yourself a fantastic new bike from Pedal Power!  Once they've made the switch, folks often chastise us for not telling them how great these new bikes are and what a difference they make.   Sigh.  We're sorry, and we'll try to do better.

But the second major step?  With or without a new bike, get a Pro Bike Fit today from Pedal Power Bike & Ski.  You'll improve your comfort and performance right now, and be ready to achieve all your riding goals for this season and beyond.

Fitting is at the core of what we do; that's why we've included several links to demonstrate that.

Our revolutionary GURU Dynamic Fit Unit is unique, and it’s great (really!).  You can read all about it HERE.  And Pedal Power is among the first shops to receive GURU's brand new motion capture add-on.

But guess what?  The system doesn’t make the fit.  A great fit still requires a great fitter, and you can read more about us HERE.

Fitting is for everyone.  Ask the folks who’ve already been through Pedal Power's GURU fitting process: like the rider we fit last Spring, who checked a cross America bike trip off his bucket list last year.  Or the woman with a less than satisfactory hip replacement, who can now ride on the rail trail again.  Or the active and healthy 18 year old woman with no history of injuries and no obvious structural malformations.  She STILL needed a GURU fit!  Better still, a GURU fit from Pedal Power.  You can take our word for that, or read her surprisingly long story, with all the gory details HERE.

If we've got you intrigued, and you'd like specific details about scheduling, time, cost, and what to bring, click HERE.

Wouldn't this be the perfect time for YOU to be properly fitted?  At Pedal Power?

The Bruce Freeman Rail Trail Keeps Growing

Here's the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail in Acton MA, with the first steel spanning the Rt 2A Flyover.

And here's the Trail about a week later, with the full steel framework.  

The contract has just been awarded to build the Trail in Concord.  And we're working to extend the Trail into downtown Lowell, and Framingham.  If you'd like to see the Trail keep growing, you can join the Friends of the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail HERE.  

And if you're even more inspired, you can donate to the Friends of the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail HERE.

Electra - The Bike for Everyone Else

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.

John's Tip of The Day

Mark Your Seat Position - If you change your seat position (while shipping your bike, for example), you might forget where you had it in the first place. That can be a pain when you've spent a lot of time getting your seat height just right for optimum efficiency. The solution is to mark the seatpost with an indelible marker so you can always find your original setting. You can also measure the distance from the top of the saddle to the center of the bottom bracket and write down or memorize the number. That way, even if your mark wears off, you'll be able to find the proper position and re-mark the post. (Don't scratch the post to mark it because this can weaken it and cause it to break.)
