Winter Tyre Offer December 2013
For some weeks now we’ve been championing the Specialized Roubaix Elite Armadillo tyre. This tyre has superb levels of puncture protection and with it’s unique 25/23 profile gives great grip and comfort whilst remaining fast rolling. We’ve all been using them for some weeks and have yet to have a puncture. The tyres cost £40 each which is on the high side for winter tyres but it’s great value for performance of this level. We want more of our customers to use these tyres so we have a fantastic deal running until the end of December. Buy a pair of these tyres and if you experience any punctures in the first 60 days, then bring the punctured tube down to the shop along with your sales receipt and we’ll give you a replacement tube for free (terms & conditions apply-ask a member of staff for details).

EXCITING NEWS AT BEHIND THE BIKESHED
Behind The Bikeshed are pleased to announce that they are now an official Specialized Body Geometry Fit Centre. Following months of training both Ruby and Scott have qualified as BG Fit Technicians. There are around 200 Specialized stores in the UK, around a quarter of which offer BG Fit. In these stores the number of female technicians can be counted on one hand; so we can offer our women riders the rare opportunity of a BG Fit carried out by a female Technician.
The story behind Specialized’s BG Fit products is well known and covers all of the Bike’s contact points. In recent years it’s been used by many of the top riders in the world including Mark Cavendish, Tony Martin and Vincenzo Nibali. It’s no co-incidence that Nibali’s rise to the very top this season came about as a result of the same fit process on offer to customers.
The price of the BG Fit is £120 for weekday appointments. This rises to £150 on a Saturday. However to promote our new status we are offering the first 12 customers to book a weekday appointment a fit at the very special introductory price of £80.
