Labor Day

August 31, 2014

We accidentally booked a ton of work on Labor Day, so the shop will be open, but we’d like to wrap thing up early. We certainly won’t turn anyone away if they’re in dire straits, but we’d rather cook out on the back porch than fix bikes, so we’re kindly requesting that non-emergencies be held until Tuesday.

Thanks!

ps – We are NOT having a sale.

Bacon!

This Saturday at the new Ibooks space on Lloyd St. in C’boro, it’ll be veggie bacon for dinner and Kevin Bacon for dessert! 

Bike-In for a potluck dinner at 7pm followed by a showing of the 80’s classic Quicksilver. 

$20 suggested donation helps support Internationalist Books as they prepare to move to their new location.

The bike shop has been painfully busy this summer, so the posts here on the old blog have been few and far between, but here’s some quality bike nerd musings for you from Vernon Felton over at Bike Magazine about the precarious fate of this country’s local bike shops:  http://www.bikemag.com/web-monkey-speaks/web-monkey-speaks-support-local-rats/

Kona Ride 2015

In the bike business, travel for work and pleasure are often one in the same. The proportion of pleasure to work has never been more in favor of pleasure than it was this past week when we visited Kona’s HQ in Bellingham, WA.

The weather was gorgeous, the trails were amazing, and the days felt endless (though time’s elasticity may have been altered by Washington’s permissive attitude towards consciousness alteration).

The mountains, the ocean, the people, the bikes; I can hardly wait til next year!

Tomorrow is Cruiser Tuesday.

Meeting here at the shop at 7:30 for social lubrication.

Ride starts at precisely 8:17-ish.

Very mellow pace on a mix of natural and paved surfaces; slightly fatter tires recommended.

Celebrate!

A single day of independence is insufficient to warrant a celebration, so we’re taking FOUR DAYS OF INDEPENDENCE!  Back Alley Bikes will be closed July 3rd through July 6th, and we’ll re-open on Monday, July 7th at 10am.
