Well people, in case you haven’t noticed, the shop has gone into winter “hibernation” mode ! Our new relaxed hours are Friday and Saturday from 9-5 ONLY. If you get lonely for a Yesteryear “fix”.. you can check out our new “live cam” link on the sidebar. Here you can keep a constant eye on us and make sure we’re not goofing off !!! You can also leave an email on the “contact us” page and we’ll get back to you but until mid-march it’s weekends only. 2014 looks like a very exciting year in the bicycle industry. Look for lots of FAT BIKES, Electric assist bikes, full suspension ATB’s and especially the brand new 650b ( 27.5) mountain bike. A few companies are offering these for ’14 but GIANT bikes are going to be the hottest and we’re gonna have them.
Just found out that TREK bicycles have aquired Electra bikes ( who make the Townie line ) so distribution should be even better in 2014. Shimano and Pearl Izumi is offering all kinds of new clothing and shoes and we will have it all in the spring. The New Bedford Bicycle Committee is going under a bunch of changes, including a yet to be named new prez, so watch out for tons of news. Group rides, bike path street markings, events, etc. ( www.nbbike.org ). In the early spring the city department of infrastructure will be picking up the Saris workstations from the shop and installing them downtown and at Fort Taber. Look for updates both in the Standard Times and here on the website. Also in the planning is an early spring “Bike Flea Market and Swap Meet” to be held on Yesteryear property. Booths will be available and this will be a great chance to both sell and buy TONS of cool bike stuff. Watch for further details !!!
Well, I’m personally going to pick out a piece of pink sand, get myself a fruity drink and try to forget about the thousands of bicycles I fixed last year. You, however, need to get those bikes up on that trainer, put on the lycra and start crankin’….. Spring starts Thursday March 20th !!!!
