The National Bicycle Dealers Association (NBDA) launched a new program at Interbike 2012 that rates bicycle stores in North America against the highest performance levels in the industry, with the goal of identifying and promoting “America’s Best Bike Shops.” The program defines the characteristics of “America’s Best Bike Shops,” and uses the results to lead bicycle shops to become the best they can be. It rewards the top performing participants for their achievements by providing recognition to consumers and the bicycle industry.On September 18th the first day of Interbike, the list was released and BEACON CYCLING was on it. Our thanks to the NBDA and our customers for helping us get there!
Clean That Muddy Bike! - Love muddy rides? Be sure to clean your bike immediately after. Why? Because, once the mud dries, it's more difficult to remove and your frame gets scratched in the process. When you wash it off before it dries, however, it rinses right off. While washing, be sure not to spray water directly at the components that contain bearings (hubs, crankset, pedals, headset) because this can contaminate the bearings causing premature grease breakdown and wear. And, be sure to apply lube to the chain, brakes and derailleurs after rinsing so that the water doesn't cause squeaking and corrosion.
