Team photo from the Adams County Composite Mountain Bike Team…These kids are the future of our sport!
The new Specialized Allez Elite was a labor of love for our design team. Creating a first road bike that performs with the best of ’em on the road and can be used as a workhorse for the “everyday” ride. It’s over 1lb lighter than last year’s frame, and features rack/fender mounts and room for 28mm tires. It’s the perfect first road bike, ready to race or speedy commute. Stop in to take one of these out for spin!
Most people might know Industry Nine by its wheel’s signature buzz, and while the internals that create the noise are impressive, the process and community behind the entire wheel itself is equally remarkable. Since the company’s first wheels hit the ground in 2004, it has been continually innovating every process involved, be it at the drawing board, in machine shop or on the assembly line. Get a glimpse of the process—from lathing to lacing—in this episode of Made With Love.
Manufacturing—most people don’t think of it as glamorous, but there is an allure to it that inspires and drives creation. The process and production behind modern mountain bikes and their associated products is an art form in itself, one that captivates both bike nerds and bike jocks alike. Made With Love is a series designed to capture the literal nuts and bolts upon which our sport is built: The components and people that bring bikes from the assembly line to trail.

Have you ever skipped out on a group ride just because you’re uncomfortable with other riders around you?
We will have two different shop rides going out tomorrow.
The women’s ride at at 9, if is not raining. Thora will be leading this first one and is planning on around 20 miles.
There will also be a men’s ride leaving at 8 with an average speed of 16-18 and will be around 30-35 miles.
Hello Ladies #2,
The ride will leave the shop at 9:00. Please park in the Edward Jones parking lot across the street. I will begin the ride with a brief explanation of the loop, etc. Kent will be taking a group photo to post on the shop website. Wear your shop jersey if you have one! We will do a 20 mile easy ride to see how that feels.
See you on Saturday for our first *GB&FLR*!! ☺
20 mile Loop Directions:
We’ll head to East Confederate, L on Baltimore Pike, R on Blacksmith Shop, Straight on Hospital, L on Sachs, R on White Church, R Barlow Two Taverns, R Taneytown, L Barlow, R Chapel, R Marsh Creek, R Steinwehr, L Cunningham, R Shriver, R Red Rock…From here we can decide to head back to the shop or extend the loop a bit.
Gettysburg Bicycle and Fitness is hosting a women’s group ride slated to start on Saturday May 6th. I’m wondering if you’d be interested. I was thinking a 25 mile loop (more or less), riding at a moderate pace of 14-16mph (more or less). Please reply to me ASAP if you are interested! Also include your time preference, would you like to ride at 8:00 or 9:00? Parking will have to be in the Edward Jones lot across the street from the bike shop. Happy Pedaling!
Thora Westre-Stith ☺
