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.
