Late Summer Tune Up

August 28th, 2014

Our accountant's handlebars.

It’s been a long, hot summer. Tune and clean your bike before it teaches you a lesson.
After a great summer of riding, your bike starts to feel the effects in more ways than just chain wear and cable stretching. The hot weather and sunshine effects your bike in other more permanent devastating ways, if not addressed.
- Your tires break down from the Ultraviolet rays of the sun.
- Tire sealant clumps
- Sweat, dirt, and moisture corrodes parts like handle bars, exposed cable, aluminum dropouts, barrel adjusters, and other metal parts.

Don’t let corrosion happen. It not only slows you down, but can do permanent damage to handlebars and other important components.

Come in a get a good wash, tune, and straighten. We’ll replace any rusted or corroded parts, housings, cables, and rewrap you bars.

Give is a call at 512 473 0222, email info@mellowjohnnys.com, or stop by the shop.

Back to School Must Haves

August 28th, 2014

We have the stuff to make your school year transportation fast and easy—without breaking your bank.

Trek FX Series

School’s back, and you now need a dependable, economical self transport system. We’ll get you the essentials.

The Bike

Our favorite bike for school commuting is the Trek FX. It’s light, nimble, and comfortable, with ample gearing for tackling Austin’s sneaky in-town climbs. It’s as happy on smooth pavement as it is on gravel, so it doubles as a city commuter and a fast fitness bike. You can also put racks and fenders on it to make it a serious commuter. There are several models of the FX dependent upon features and components, so there is one for everyone’s needs and budget. FX’s start at $469.99 with a warranty, free brake and derailleur adjustment for life, and one free tuneup.

Kryptonite 785 Keeper

Lock

You gotta have a lock. While a U-Lock is your most secure, we are very excited about the Kryptonite 785 Keeper Chain. It’s a super-secure chain lock like you see in urban centers. It’s affordable at $34.99, and easily carried.

Lezyne Femto Drive

Lights

See and be seen. We have a wide range of brightness and prices, but these little Lezyne Femtos are a great value at 14.99. Good lumens, long life, and well-priced. If you want more light, come and check out some of our serious light systems like the 700 lumen Ion.

Storage & Bags

Chrome Bags

You’ll have cargo, so we have a bunch of bags, packs, rack panniers, and other options, whether you like shoulder bags, backpacks, or racks only. Check out goods from Chrome and Timbuk2.
