What will we do next?

[in stock] Shimano Sport Camera

Shimano Camera

[in stock] items are cool new items that we carry at the shop.

We just picked up the new Shimano Sport Camera.  After a few of us tested it we are IMPRESSED.  There are lots of cameras out there, but we really like these because they are made for us – cyclists. Because these cameras are made for cyclists, they have some features that make them better for using with bikes than other, more mainstream first person action cameras.

Top Features you should care about as a cyclist

  • Built in wifi (compare to GoPro Black edition @ $399)
  • iPhone & Android apps
  • Waterproof camera (no ‘case’ like GoPros)
  • Small and lightweight (duh)
  • Records in 720P @ 120 fps (so your action video doesn’t get choppy)
  • Time lapse mode
  • Helmet strap & helmet mount
  • Many GoPro mounting accessories will work with camera
  • Safety leash included (you won’t always land that sick jump)
  • Automatic image rotation (no more filming upside down)
  • Pairing with ANT+ sensors (Cadence, HR, Speed, Power, Di2 shifting)

  • So easy to operate and post to Youtube even Mike can do it 🙂

Beginner to Pro Mountain Bike Racing in Winston Salem, NC

Winston-Salem, NC – Winston Salem’s Hobby Park will host the Southern Classic Series Cross Country Mountain Bike races on Sunday, August 3. All ability levels are welcome to compete for prizes provided by local bike shops.

The Hobby Park race will consist of 1 lap for beginning racers and 3 laps for advanced and pro racers. One lap consists of 7 miles of single track trails through the woods on the property at Hobby Park. The trail has some advanced features, but novice cyclists can bypass these features.

The event will base out of the remote control air landing strip at Hobby Park and all the local sponsoring bike shops will be in attendance. In addition to the Southern Classic Series races, there will be kid’s fun races from ages 5-10.

The classes for the Southern Classic races include:

  • Fun Kid races

“This race is a great event for the Winston Salem mountain biking community,” says Mike Cobler, owner of Cycletherapy Bikes in Lewisville. “This event was designed to be more than a typical Southern Classic race. We wanted it to be a place for families to come out and find out what mountain bike racing is all about.  We’ll have first time racers and pro riders alike.  We’ll even have fun races for kids out in the grassy area. A lot of the area bike shops will be in attendance so you can ask questions and look at bikes on display,” says Cobler.
