New bicycles usually arrive in our brick-and-mortar shop sometime in March or April. That's when the cycling season gets underway in our seaside town.
We changed that schedule this winter for the first time in 35 years in order to have fresh inventory for our online shop customers.
Imagine our surprise in early February when a couple walked into the brick-and-mortar shop looking to buy bicycles. Imagine our delight to have in stock exactly what they wanted.
With the 2012 cycling season's early start, riding couples fancy his and her hybrid bikes from Diamondback.
Bikemanforu offers the men's Edgewood, and the comparable women's Vital 2 with a step-through mixte frame.
These aluminum frame models combine the best easy-pedaling features of a mountain bike with the speedier cruising capability of a road bike.
For example, shock-absorbing fork and seat posts and larger 700c tires smooth the ride over rough pavement and cobblestone streets. Adjustable handlebars allow you to set your own upright positioning.
The 21-speed gearing makes these lightweight hybrids equally adept at fast commuting to work, or climbing up and down hills with ease on your weekends away together.
And that's just what our new customers did. They rode their new bikes home.
