It’s that time of year when many riders start to think about riding trainers or rollers (also known to some as trainer season). Riding indoors is not the best way to ride a bike but it can be enjoyable and help keep you in shape (or get in shape). Joe Mamma Cycles offers a range of affordable trainers from Tacx. From the Vortex for those looking for more performance training to The Blue Twist for those just looking for something affordable to burn some kilometers/Calories. Here are a few points to keep in mind when you are thinking about trainers.
We are excite to bring the DIY format to our shop. This program will allow our clients to learn what they want to know in a one to one format. We will tailor each session to clients goals to ensure that maximum understanding and knowledge is achieved. Unlike a typical class setting, Joe Mamma cycles will work with each individual on a 1 to 1 basis to ensure that all of your questions can be answered and that you leave feeling confident in your abilities.
The word “fixie” can have multiple meanings to different people. Many younger riders and beginners use the word to describe any bike that only has one gear, regardless of whether or not the pedals are always moving. However, more intermediate and advanced riders know that there is a significant difference between riding a real “fixie”, and just any bike with only one gear, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.
We are happy to announce our first Race Night of 2017. Friday April 21st 7PM at the Shop 767 Bank st. Joe Mamma Cycles will be hosting a night all about safety.
