In preparation for the CF Cycle for Life ride, let’s do a loop down to Chatfeild Reservoir along the Platte, take the 470 trail to Morrison, then head back to the shop along Bear Creek. Approx 35-40 miles with some rollers. Hope to see you there!
Nice Bike’s own David Albertson is heading a team of riders to participate in this years CF Cycle for Life Ride. This is a cause that hits close to home for us at Nice Bike because David has CF. David was diagnosed at 2 years old, and now at 33, he credits cycling with his continued health. Follow the link below to get all the details.
Please show some love by either participating or donating!
Group Rides continue this Sunday 7/20. It’s supposed to be rather warm tomorrow, so we’ll meet at the shop at 8:30 am to ride to Red Rocks. Looking forward to seeing everyone then!
We would like to congratulate and welcome our new Co Owner, Sacha Albertson! With Kent moving into retirement, we are very lucky to have Sacha. She has a great eye for retail, wicked sense of management and ninja-like quickbook/accounting skills!! We are very excited to have her lead the team and she is really going to class up the joint!
That’s right, Dogma demo bikes. That’s demo as in “demonstration” not “demolition”. Specked out with new Shimano 11 speed Ultegra components and our #1 selling wheelset, the Fulcrum Racing Zero, this bike will blow your mind with it’s combination of power and smoothness. If you have always wanted to try one of these amazing machines, now is your chance. Please call for sizes and availability.
Here’s wishing everyone a happy holiday season. Nice Bike will be closed during the holiday week starting on December 24th and reopening on January 2nd. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you all in 2014.
Many times, in cycling, the best bike frames are the frames that you see the pros riding in races like the Tour de France. They often are the fastest, lightest, and best riding frames available, and it’s no wonder that there is a demand for such equipment, by the general public. Properly sized, most people can fit on many of these frames, but, let’s face it, many of us just don’t need anything that stiff and that aggressive. Here is where we insert the Time Fluidity.
Constructed from Time’s own, proprietary carbon and resin, the Fluidity is handmade in Lyon, France, and like all other Time frames, it comes with a lifetime warranty. Is it light? You bet! Less than 15.5 lbs w/ Campagnolo Record EPS and Mad Fiber wheels. Does it climb? Like a mountain goat. Seated or standing, the power transfer from the bottom bracket to the rear axle will satisfy even on the steepest grades. Does it descend? Much faster than I thought I ever could. The bike is so stable you will almost forget your going 80 kph. Is it comfortable? This is the ultimate epic ride bike. The frame absorbs both low-frequency vibration (the vibration of riding on imperfect surfaces), and the bigger impacts from surface cracks and very rough surfaces. But, where some other “smooth riding” frames may lack in power, especially when the grades get steep, the Fluidity surges up the road with every pedal stroke. And, on the descents, the bike feels like it is sucking down into the pavement, which makes your fastest descents seem way too comfortable. The head tube on this 57 cm frame is an ample 201 mm. This allows for riders to have a comfortable cockpit position without having to use an excessive amount of spacers under the stem, which results in an amazing sensation of control and stiffness, even out of the saddle.
If you are looking for a frame every bit as nice a the bikes that you see in the pro peleton, but are not racing the Tour de France next month, then please consider the Time Fluidity. The best possible bike for your epic day in the mountains.
