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.This year's list was released and BEACON CYCLING was on it again. Our THANKS to the NBDA and our customers for helping us get there!

Shipping Your Bike? Don't Forget The Padding! - You can avoid most damage during shipping by packing your bicycle carefully. Use pipe insulation to wrap and protect the frame tubes. Ask us for a fork block. These plastic pieces fit between the fork blades to prevent bending should a heavy object land on your bike crate. We also have axle caps, which prevent axle ends poking through the box. When you're packing your bike, pay attention to what's touching what, too. Ensure that there's as little metal-to-metal contact as possible to minimize damage. Put cardboard between metal parts that might touch. Inspect the packed bike for things that might rub, poke or scratch other parts of the bicycle. One of the more fragile parts of any bike is the rear derailleur. Protect this by shifting into the largest cog. This moves the derailleur closer to the wheel where it's less likely to get bent on the trip.
