Mountain bike ride tonight, 615 at the shop, just one moderate pace group. Conditions may be slick, so this is best for experienced riders. No gravel ride tonight, but gravel rides will resume next week.

The Stage 1 Junior crew will be headed out on a AirLine Trail and beyond voyage at 530pm as well.

(sorry, this post is long and super bike geeky)

Is it possible that the best full suspension bike I've ever ridden has gotten better? I loved my 2018 Norco Sight, and have been kicking myself for selling it, but I thought I should try some other models. I've had a great time in the interim ripping it up on mid-range travel bikes like the Giant Stance 1 and the Norco Fluid... they are both great bikes for Connecticut riding, no doubt... but I was curious about the redesign of my old favorite...

When it saw the specs for the new 2020 Sight 29er, I'll admit I was nervous: the travel got significantly bigger, and the fork angle increased, and I was convinced that my former favorite had gone too enduro, and might not be as good a do everything Connecticut bike. Boy was I wrong!! This new bike RIPS! Those crazy Canadians know how to design a damn fine bike! I am amazed at how well this bike rides, and I am really pretty bummed that the lucky new owner is picking it up tomorrow. I think I need one. Probably right away. Please don't tell Kate. Did I mention it is gorgeous AirLine blue? Such a pretty bike...

Cristal Chan this would make a great Valentine's day gift for me too! <3 <3 πŸ™‚

Brian you should probably get a shop demo. I have a friend that would love to try it out. Plus you could give an accurate review on if it is better so customers know πŸ™‚

You had me at Bike geeky...

Cristal Chan this would make a great Valentines day gift for me 😍😍😁

I’m sitting next to you, stop denying that you want this bike, I can read buddy... and you are the only person posting as Airline cycles.

It’s a beautiful bike. We were admiring it tonight.

Today the shop is closed for inventory, but tonight we ride! The trails are still pretty wet, so we'll be skipping the singletrack and instead riding up the AirLine Trail to do some hot laps on the new middle school trails. These trails have just been cut, and are still under development, so riding these in wet conditions is actually a good thing. Fatbikes are preferred, but normal knobbies should be okay too.

Ride departs at 6PM from the shop!

Happy New Year!

New Year's Day: Open house at AirLine Cycles at noon.

Unfortunately, the group rides are cancelled. Wet conditions and no freezing temps left the trails in terrible conditions...and then we got 2.5" of additional rain. Please, respect the trails during this most sensitive stretch of weather. Any big ruts or trail damage that occurs now will likely freeze into place, cause further erosion, and we'll be dealing with even worse conditions come the spring thaw.

Happy New Year!

Seems like a good call. I was on the Airline Trail on Sunday and it was pretty sloppy. Probably much worse after the last couple of days.

Call it the Holiday Village Stroll, or call it Second Saturday, or call it AirLine Cycles Appreciation Day, whatever you like! Regardless, the Village Center is open 10am-8pm today with live music, live art, a food truck, and great holiday shopping all around!

Did you say LIVE ART? Why yes! We are psyched to have uber-talented local artist Tina McCurdy coming down to the shop to mural up our new back wall. You've seen her murals all over Eli Cannon's, her happy fuzzy cows at FOC, her paintings all over the Forest City Brewing walls, and her illustrations in the new children's book "The Marsh". You have even seen her awesome day of the dead sksleton biker designs on AirLine merch. Tina will be slinging art tonight after 6pm. Copies of her awesome book will be available as well. Check out her work on instagram @neidart www.instagram.com/neidart/?hl=en Buy Art, Be Happy!

Now through Christmas, every used bike purchase includes a FREE Giant Rev Comp helmet - that's a $60 free helmet on top of the great pricing on a bunch of really nice used bikes. A couple of these bikes could pass for new; others might have a couple of scratches, but they are freshly tuned and ready for many years of great riding. ...
