The much requested “small” refurbished road bike has snuck into the racks at Pedal Revolution. Don’t sleep on this one. It will be gone quick.
Trek 1100 lightweight aluminum frame w/steel fork. Rebuilt with new and some classic parts including Pedal Rev staff favorite Soma Highway one handlebar that favors smaller hands.
48cm Seat tube/50cm Top tube. Great for someone 5′- 5’3″.
59cm Rivendell Rambouillet @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bike Update
In the spirit of ye ol’ Sears catalogs and the Minutemen (disambiguation: the incredible inspirational rock band – like the Panaracer Pasela tire, a Pedal Revolution staff favorite! We are not so stoked on the other minutemen.) I present to you a very special used bike, a 58cm (top tube – center to center) Rivendell Rambouillet. There is no need to make any sort of crass seductive emotional appeals here. The facts and photos shall suffice.
Made in USA Seat!
Son Dynamo Hub
Sugino XD Triple Cranks, VP Pedals, Shimano Ultegra Rear and 105 Front Derailleur
At an honest 5’9″ on the dime this bike is a bit too tall for me/Joel
Although this bike has a 58 cm top-tube the seat tube is much longer requiring a rider of about 6′ tall
$2000 – (59cm top-tube center to center/61cm seat-tube bb center to top)
This is a Reynolds Steel framed Jamis Coda Comp fully geared hybrid. New Wheels, tires, fork, full drivetrain, brake pads, handlebars. An excellent commuter bike at a great price.
16″ – $465. Perfect for someone 5’2″ -5’6″
All of Pedal Revolution’s refurbished bikes come with 3 months free service and 10% off of accessory purchases for 1 month from purchase!
This post has nothing to do with bikes but it does have to do with our local community.
There was a 4 alarm fire at Mission and 22nd streets last night in a building that provided housing for 40 people who are now displaced, as well as the offices of Mission Local, and other businesses. Many of the residents had lived in the building for decades. One man has died and 6 are being treated for injuries. We saw the SFFD rescue numerous people from the fire escapes and from inside the building, bravely entering the burning building again and again to look for residents. Thank you to the San Francisco Fire Department for the difficult work that your do. Our hearts go out to the people of our community affected by this fire.
Immediately after closing at 7pm this evening (Wednesday, January 28th) there will be a free flat tire repair workshop at Pedal Revolution (3085 21st St/SF, CA). You will work on your own bike (we will have some loaner aprons but you should still avoid wearing your best clothes) and the clinic should be over by 9pm. There is only room for a few more people in the class so please call (415-641-1264) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to attend.
Whether commuting, racing, mountain biking, or touring, flat tires are an unfortunate reality of riding. Every cyclist should be able to roadside repair a flat tire. Topics discussed will be tire construction, flat diagnoses, tool terminology, and top tips for successful repair and prevention. The clinic will be about half instruction half hands-on. The experience will certainly be highly educational, possibly fun, and maybe even rewarding. Hope to see you tonight!
Over the weekend Pedal Revolution Intern Supervisor/Bicycle superhero Angela recovered a stolen bicycle. The story went like this…
Dude comes into the shop and asks if we work on stolen bikes?! Angela thinking quickly says “We can take a look at it, is that bike stolen?”. Dude responds, “Yes, I just bought it off a guy in the neighborhood who stole it.”
Angela takes the bike in the service area to look it over, Dude goes to get money. Angela recognized the the guy who brought the bike in as someone who had come in a few days ago with a different (likely stolen bike). Odds are that he is the thief. When he returns Angela tells him that we cannot work on the bike because it has locking skewers which he doesn’t have a key for, and because the bike is stolen, we cannot let him leave with it. Dude looks a little confused. Angela tells him to go find the bike thief and get his money back, gives him our shop business card if he has any further questions and tells him that we will contact the police and track down the owner.
He probably won’t be back any time soon.
So we have a very nice relatively new Bianchi Lupo at the shop that needs to be re-connected with it’s rightful owner. The bike is not registered through SAFE bikes the SFPD bike registry program (REGISTER YOUR BIKES PEOPLE!) but we are reaching out to the SFPD to see if a police report has been filed for it. If you know of anyone who has had a Bianchi Lupo stolen recently, have them get in touch with Pedal Revolution.
