The Titan is Banshee's new kid on the block, but make no mistake it is not a thrown together boy band looking for quick number 1 hits... this thing is properly awesome for its intended crowd!
Now, I only have a few rides on this thing, I am but a lowly Punter, but i have noticed a few things, and it also unexpectedly surprised me with a PB on my second day out!
Carbon not your thing... don't worry, @INCEPTIONSPEEDSHOP has you covered! Banshee has always been #MOREAWESOMER, and they just one new bike and updated another.
I give you the New TITAN and the Updated RUNE... new suspension kinematics to improve on the already amazing KS system and... frames hold a water bottle now too!!!!
The TITAN ins a 150mm travel big wheeled 29r bruiser, and the RUNE is a 160mm 650b trail slashing machine... take your pick, see you in the INCEPTION SPEED SHOP!
PS... don't forget about the rest on Banshee's kick ass rigs too!
Here is your chance to start a #MOREAWESOMER winter build project with Select Evil Frames and builds on discount.
HIGHLIGHT BIKE BUILD
THE FOLLOWING MB
Pretty much the perfect trail bike for our region. Run a 120 to 140 fork on this sports car bike, or get a little more rowdy by tossing in a angleset and dropping the headangle into the 65degree range.
It will climb, it will haul ass on the trails and it makes a great play bike at Blue mountain too! Builds from 26lbs and up, with a perfect trail build weight of 29-30lbs, this is the one bike you can have in you stable and ride it anywhere, anytime!
THE WRECKINING... as it has been stated before... a true Monster Truck on Wheel. Don't let its size fool you, with a low bb, tight Rear end and adjustable angles this thing can take on DH Trails and still ride all day epics up and down the mountain.
THE CALLING... this is one of my favorites. 650b wheels make this rig uber playful. But, toss on a 29r frotn end to Mullet it up and you have a very cabable machine. The playfulness of the 650b, and the confidence making awesomeness of the 29r front.
LETS MAKE YOUR 2020 ride season a #RIDEMOREAWESOME season
Drop in to chat about how we can turn any of these bikes in to the perfect machine for your riding style and destinations..... the #INCEPTIONSPEEDSHOP awaits!
It is back, it is day one, and here are the details.
30 Days of April aka #30daysofbiking is an pledge to ride your bike every day in April and share your adventures with the hashtag #30daysofbiking.
Beyond that, it is an encouragement to ride, get ready for the season ahead, inspire others and to also be a Fundraiser for the World Bicycle Relief fund. I encourage everyone to try and donate something to support the cause.
In addition to that, I will put up a tasty something to a randomly selected participant who logs a ride every day in April on STRAVA/Garmin/Instagram Post etc. This tasty something will help you continue your riding efforts into May and beyond.
So here is how it works.
1. Shoot me an email/text/insta message (something) that you are intend to try and ride all 30 Days
2. Ride your bike, a bike, every day
3. Log the Ride on Strava/Garmin Connect some way to show you had a ride everyday (even if you just manually upload a silly ride that shows you rode that day)
4. Tag @inceptioncyclery and #30daysofbiking in any adventure posts or ride data for the ride... spread the word!
5. Have fun with it.... sometimes you have to improvise...
New for 2019 are FLEX HOURS. Really it is just a one word shot to describe both MOBILE Repair and Bicycle pick-ups during the shops "Off" hours.
What can you have done in FLEX HOURS off site (aka your house, your work, road side, trail head....)?? LOTS!
Rolling into 2019 with full intentions for everyone to ride #moreawesomer - Expanded hours and more....
2019 is here, and it is time to help everyone ride More Awesomer. To do that I have expanded the available hours for you to book in service at the shop.
There are still the regular drop in, chat cycling (over a coffee), drop off your bike or book a quick service repair hours, but now you have the ability to drop off earlier and later, or to even book a quick service or tune up repair on the spot and on your time. Those are the "FLEX"hours.
Within those flex yours you can book in on the spot repairs before and in some cases after regular shop hours, or I can meet at the shop for you to drop off your bike at a convenient time for you. Simply follow the "BOOK" buttons across the various avenues (website,facebook,instagram,google) and you decide what you want done and when.
But it won't stop there...
Later into the season there will be the added "MOBILE" option. During those flex hours you can have the shop visit you on location to complete your tune-up or repairs, and/or have your bike picked-up and transported to the shop.
With the new Online Booking you can also...
So, bring on the new year, and lets make sure everyone rides more often, and rides #moreawesomer too!
If you have been following along on Facebook and Instagram, then you are fully aware that the shop has made her move to a new long term location at 140 Welland ave in St.Catharines. The space is 90% complete, but is in full operation
If you have not been following along... well now you know. Back into St.Catharines, new space, new feel, all bike shop! The service bar is back, a great little lounge to hang out in and the shop is littered with classic memorabilia, photos and lots of vintage trinkets.
So drop in on a ride for adjustments, or to hang out and visit. Bring your bike inside with you, there are a few racks to store it while we have a chat at the bike bar!
See you in there!
So, winter seems to be hanging on, unwilling to loosen its grip and blossum into spring, but, that has not stopped a few of us from taking on the 30 dayas of biking challenge.
Check out some of the action so far....
Don't let this ever changing April weather derail you, keep it up and if it gets hard, reach out and lets get out together.
Lastly, to those taking the challenge in secret.... stay motivated and stay focused on your personal goals.
See you all at the end!
"As Stiff as Ron Jeremy"
(Evils words.... not mine)
Road trippin’, turn slashin’, side-hit-jibbin’, nose-bonkin’, sprint-climbin’ attitude, that’s the Calling. It’s anti-serious technology guarantees good times 69% of the time (the other 31% you’re climbing). With 130mm Delta delivered travel through our finest formed carbon tubing, 27.5" wheels, and trunnion-mounted-super-deluxe-rear-shock, your only decision is which colour. Push the button.
Have you ever wanted a bike that wasn’t like a bike at all? More like your favourite snowboard, or your funnest surfboard, the one that catches all the waves or trashes [pillow] lines faster than Kate Moss in the '90s. The Calling is your answer. This bike-shaped-skateboard has enough travel to keep you honest, while encouraging you to irresponsibly hit every extra-credit line on the trail.
At this juncture most bike companies would drive in some high-scoring-scrabble words like optimized, nimble or anti-squat technology. But we won’t insult you with that nonsense. The Calling has all the bits and bobs you have come to expect from Evil, and water bottle mounts.
The Calling is the Following's delinquent little brother that left on a road trip and never returned, that pedaled into the night in search of more, then woke for the sunrise mission to the summit.
The Calling is the trails, it’s the road trips, it’s the little side hits on the way, it’s the all-day pedal-fests, the backyard pallet sessions, the pre-work rip, the “I’ll get it this time”, the stories told later in the bar with your best mates, it’s 130mm travel, it’s Super Deluxe, it’s 27.5 or 26+, it’s boost and it’s as stiff as Ron Jeremy.
Things we are doing, riding, where we have been and other random, meaningful and useless stuff
