Retroshift levers and Burd derailleurs in stock now. you need this #cyclocross



When i first laid hands on a set of retroshift levers, I thought "now why wasn't this done 25 years ago?" it is so simple, so elegant, so easy to maintain and cheap to replace. As someone currently rocking Campagnolo EPS on my main road bike (which is awesome) I am continually impressed with quality and design of everything the Goats are doing. Today I got my first shipment of Burd rear derailleurs.

this is a nice derailleur. It's well made, well finished, the springs feel nice and tight. And it's 69 bucks. This is my next cross kit, it's the only kit for gravel grinders. Really, this is what most cyclist should give serious consideration too, especially if you intend to do long, unsupported tours, or the kind of abusive rides like Cyclocross. Full build and ride reviews to come, but we are excited.

The Salsa Fargo, best bike for the zombie apocolypse, on sale now!



In many ways, the salsa fargo is overkill. A big and burly 29 inch mountain rig with no suspension and drop bars may seem like a niche bike without a niche, but after a month of riding, commuting and toting my two year old around in it, I am in love with the durability and versatility of this thing. And as the title states, it is the best rig to have in case of a zombie apocalypse, which seems pretty eminent if the popularity of recent movies, TV shows and books has anything to say about it. The Fargo is good ole fashioned steel unless you have the deep pockets to spring for a ti version, which is a justifiable purchase if you have deep pockets or if this is the last and only bike you ever intend to own. As a second or third bike, the Fargo is an awesome addition to any riders stable and probably the most functional bike a dedicated cyclist could own.

With an ibert attached to the front, I can take my dutiful co-pilot Matilda on many adventures, most of which involve scouting local playgrounds.



above is Matilda with her father's day card and riding goggles ready for a trip across town. The Fargo is also the bike that currently lays claim to the record time for the tour Divide, a ridculous go here

The Foundry Auger, the Gravel Grovel, and a poorly trained rider.



In the last few years, Cyclocross has become my favorite riding/racing discipline. With a growing shop and now a growing daughter



my time to race has become more and more limited. This year I missed the first six races due to shop and family commitments. After that it was easy to blow off the rest of the OVCX series, but I needed a goal and endurance races are more my speed.

Get your single speed on, Nature boys are in

If you are looking for a rock solid single speed cross bike or all around, do all commuter/racer, the All City Nature Boy is the bike for you. We love the All City's no nonsense geometry and attention to detail. The straight blade steel fork resists brake chatter better than any carbon on the market and the internally housed brake cable keeps your cable system clean and protected from the elements.

This ride is smooth and responsive and rivals any aluminum or carbon rig on the market. Slap on some race wheels and you will be zipping through the mud. Or put some slicks on it and hit the pavement with the buttery smooth ride of steel.

We are lucky to have a great selection of the nature boy. Want to customize it? We have framesets in green, and a few of the limited edition Zona frames



Want to keep it simple with the budget conscious stock build? we have a full size run of the stock bike in blackened blue



feel free to give us a call about a custom build. For a more detailed look at whats available, check out our inventory under bicycles.

Raleigh International custom build: A weight-weenie lugged steel bike



The all new 2011 Raleigh International, a raceable lugged steel beauty

Raleigh has returned to its roots in recent years and reintroduced a line of classic, yet modernized steel bikes including the Clubman, an affordable, all around cadillac ride, the Record Ace, an ultegra specced Mid level 531 racer and a number of others in their line up. Seeing that steel is truly still a worthy option for a modern bicycle for any style rider, Raleigh decided to fill the last demographic: the high end racer.

The International is a gorgeous black beauty with chrome lugs crafted out of 831 Steel. Harkening back to the classic race bikes of Raleighs glory days, the International maintains traditional geometry and looks of something you would imagine Merckx riding

Fuji SST 3.0 ride review

It has been a while since I reviewed the original Fuji SST, which was actually a re-badged Fuji Aloha tri bike. Fuji was mold recycling with that bike, but I was thoroughly impressed with its redefined purpose as a killer road race bike, and super-stiff sprinters' bike. As late as the original SST was coming to the plate it was still successful enough to warrant a frame upgrade. My original review is here. The new SST is strikingly different in appearance, but retains the originals intent purpose: to be a super stiff, racing machine. Read on for the ride review and frame improvements.

Product review showdown: Garmin Edge 500 vs. Garmin Edge 800

We do a lot with cycling computers here at Main Street Bikes and I am constantly looking for better products from the most entry level wired speedo to the newest, flashiest, high-zoot do all. From the high zoot category we have the latest from Garmin, known best for their advances in GPS technology. Many of you probably have or are looking at the Garmins as an upgrade. Aside from the ability to track where you have been, or find your way home, the Garmin computers offer lots of great training tools, elevation information, and they all work with ANT+ technology which gives you the ability to read power stats from any meter on the market.

The two front runners in the Garmin line for cyclists are the Garmin 500, a smaller, black and white screened unit geared towards the avid cyclist or racer. Then we have the all new, touch screen Garmin 800 with full color mapping capability. On the Main Street Velo squad, we have myself and Jason Monk on the Garmin 500, and Roy Denny on the 800. Over the next two weeks, I will be posting product reviews and feedback on the two models with some comparison notes. Here are the initial thoughts from Roy on the 800.
