RUNNING EXERCISE TEST
We are happy to announce that from Spring (mid March) on we will start doing exercise tests on the treadmill. We both (re)found the love for running a while back for different reasons, one being more time-efficient as a dad and the other having a quarter life crisis and thus signing up for an Ironman. Besides that we are seeing more triathletes in the shop, people who not only cycle but also run and pure runners looking for sports nutrition.
Before we started the shop Felix worked at Bakala Academy, during this period he tested all types of sportswomen and -men on the bike and on the treadmill ranging from amateur runners working towards their first marathon to top level hockey players preparing for the Olympics back to basketball & soccer players for transfers.
From now on you can pre-orde an exercise test - running until the end of February for 100€ instead of 150€. We will start doing running tests from the 3rd week of March.
FIT BEFORE YOU BUY
It has been the concept from the beginning on and we do not plan on changing it. Every bike bought at the shop will be (bike)fitted, your correct size will be checked dynamically and detailed. A handlebar will be changed, a stem will be swapped. This service is included in the price of the bike. We simply believe this approach will offer you more pleasure on the bike. From the first ride on. Come over to the shop and we'll happily get into detail on your next dream bike.
We are entering our fourth year with the shop and will keep the same calendar for the coming year with group rides on every first and third Saturday of the month. The rides remain free and open to all under the by now familiar concept "we do not race, we pace". Find out all the info and our full calendar via the link below.
THE WEIGHT WEENIE TEMPLATE
Here you have it. Our weight weenie data sheet in Excel. Wether you going for a custom build or thinking on upgrades. This template will answer all your questions and more importantly give you all the numbers. Wether you'r looking for the biggest weight loss or just want to know the total price of your investment. It's all in this sheet with avan a price-a-gram ratio to determine what modification will have the most impact and the cost that comes along with it.
Note : this sheet is made by Gehan who was an architect, is a bike mechanic but has never been IT engineer. Input and remarks are more than welcome. It's an open sheet in which you can freely modify formulas and values, but remember to be careful with that. Since it's open for modifications, changing stuff will impact results.
