Christmas Update

Well, the countdown to Christmas is well and truly moving quickly. We're trading all the way up to 7pm Christmas Eve and hopefully Santa will remember to swing by and pick up all his lay-bys.

We have a lot of bikes to build (and store) between now and Christmas, so the workshop is fully booked until the New Year. If you need any small jobs done please ring to check if we have time to do any repairs.

Garmin Edge 705

Wembley Cycles is now an authorised dealer for Garmin GPS hardware. Specifically, the Garmin Edge 705. Packed with features, it is a brilliant little GPS unit that lets you know just about everything you need to know about what and how you are riding. Not only does it let you map your rides, but it can also measure your heart rate, cadence and even power! The Edge 705 is a fantastic training tool for all kinds of cyclists and best of all, we have them in stock right now. They make an excellent Christmas present for the cyclist who thinks they have everything. We'll have reviews soon enough as 3 staff members have purchased them and are putting them through their paces on the road and in the dirt.

Dusk Till Dawn 12 Hour Race.

The 2009 Alcoa Dusk till Dawn 12hour MTB Challenge was run and done this past weekend. Wembley Cycles had two teams running and several more of our regular customers also organised teams. It was a brilliantly run event and throughout the night and into the morning there was many happy mountain bikers out on course. The Wembley Cycles Average Joes (John Carney, Steve Courtice and Dan O'Kane) came second in the three man category, right behind the overall winners, the Trailblazers. In the overall standings the Average Joes came third after a four man team managed to sneak in an extra half lap over us, oh to have fresh legs like those guys did! Still, as the best placed corporate team, the Average Joes took home the inaugural Avanti Corporate Challenge Trophy.

As summer heats up it is an awesome time to do some night riding after work. We're in the process of creating a regular Wednesday night ride out at Mt Gungin. Give the shop a call if you're interested in coming along.

Specialized Test Fleet in store now.

We recently received our demo bikes from Specialized. We have a medium size Stumpjumper FSR and a large size Enduro FSR. All the mountain bikers on staff have test ridden the bikes and experimented with the particulars of the FSR suspension set-up, so, when you arrange a demo ride we'll be able to set you up pretty quickly and get you onto the trails.

Don't forget that we also have a medium size Yeti 575 available for test rides.

Call the shop on 9387 3708 to book your test ride. You must present to staff a valid West Australian drivers license and credit card in order to borrow a test bike.

Retro Yeti

This is one expensive Yeti. Maybe the 2010 model you buy today will be worth this much someday.

Friday, October 30, 2009

Get some new nix.

We've got a few sets of the top of the range bib knicks from both Louis Garneau and Pearl Izumi in store right now. They're expensive, but oh so worth it. They breath better, they transfer moisture better, they feel better and they fit better than what you're currently riding around in. Come down and try some on today.

Wow, it has been a long time since our last update. Since we started opening until 6pm we've been really, really busy. Our service department is currently booking jobs in a full week ahead of time. As the sun stays out longer and longer, the workshop is only going to get busier. If you're thinking of getting work done on your bike, it will pay to plan ahead and book your bike in.

We are now dealers for the Specialized Bicycle Company. Specialized is one of the biggest bike companies in the world and they do an amazing range of bikes, accessories and apparel. Check their website for information, or call the shop with any questions.

Wembley Cycles Trail Taste!

Sample the joys of mountainbiking with the Wembley Cycles Trail Taste!
The Trail Taste is our demo program and we kick things off with the 2009 Giant Anthem X1.

The Anthem X1 combines the best features of light weight race bikes and sturdy trail bikes. The 100m travel Fox forks are stiffer than most of its rivals. Match that with the square shaped down tube added to the 2009 Anthem's frame and you have one of the stiffest and most precise steering bikes on the market. The Shimano XT Drivetrain doesn't miss a beat and the X1's tubeless ready Mavic XM819 wheels are a rare inclusion on a bike valued at less than $4K. The Anthem X1 weighs in at 11.88kg for a medium frame.

If you'd like to try before you buy then drop in with your Drivers License and Credit card and you can take the Anthem (Medium frame size) out for a real taste of the trail.

The wheels are available as pairs only. These wheels are designed for fixies only, if you want a machined sidewall on the rims so that you can run rim brakes then there is an extra charge of $10 per wheel. There are heaps of different designs so check out the Velocity Wheels website for all the details.

We've just had a few more really cool bikes turn up at Wembley Cycles. The Indi Cruz is a single speed cruiser style bicycle that comes complete with mud guards and a rear rack. Perfect for a trip to the beach, cafe or bottle shop. The best bit about the Cruz is the price, $289! Give us a call on 9387 3708 or pop down to the shop for a test-ride. You won't be disappointed.

Dan's first ride of 2009.

I went out for my first mountain bike ride of 2009 and ended up with my first injury of 2009!
I was riding my Giant Glory Expert and had a ball doing lots of jumps and descending some fast, rock filled singletrack. I wish all our customers the best of luck in 2009 and hopefully you won't have any crashes like me!


Dan's first ride of 2009.
