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!

Don't Let A Broken Bike Part Ruin Your Trip - When traveling with your bike, it's a good idea to always pack a few repair parts in your bike case. That way, if something breaks, you'll be prepared and you won't have to scramble to find a bike shop or run the risk of not finding what you need. Here's what we take along: A spare seat-binder bolt. It's an item that can easily break when you're re-installing your seatpost and adjusting your seat. If your bike has a replaceable rear derailleur hanger, a spare can be a trip-saver should you fall and damage yours (or if the frame gets damaged in transit by the airline). If you have a road bike that has 650c tires, carry two spare tubes and a spare tire because, though this size is becoming more common, it still can be tough to find. Always carry a chain tool and spare chain pins (if your chain requires them) to deal with chain problems. Other handy small parts are replacement stem bolts, clipless pedal tension-adjustment screws, spokes (these must match what's in your wheels), and brake and gear cables.
