We are continuing, improving, and expanding our “Pre Order” reservation system.

We have added 2022 bikes to our Pre Order category along with remaining 2021 bikes still on order. New bikes will be added as they are confirmed. When you find the bike you want, you will be able to reserve it with a $150 non-refundable deposit. Quantities are extremely limited. The bikes available are listed under a new category in our online shop called *On Order-Reserve Now*

PLEASE NOTE: Due to extreme fluctuations in pricing, the cost of a bike on reserve will be the suggested retail price at the time the bike is shipped, including bikes reserved with a deposit.  We cannot guarantee pricing until we receive the bikes.

We have expanded the Pre Order category to include fitness equipment we have coming in the next few months. You can reserve any item on order, or even layaway items in stock with as little as a 10% deposit. To start your reservation, put your items in a cart and at checkout choose “Pay Later” and complete your order. We will follow up with payment methods, to finalize your order.

You can use this system if you are reserving items on order, or for financing,  layaway, or if you have tax exempt status (proof of status will be required)

Snowshoe Rentals

We have a great selection of snowshoes available to rent. This is a great way to find out if getting out and having a great time in the winter is right for you. There are several sizes to choose depending on your weight and the type of trails you are going to use. Check the chart to find your size. Don’t worry about it too much.

Boy Scout Invasion

We had a group of boy scouts come to ride the Cabot Trail. Here’s what one of their leaders had to say…

I’m Greg H., one of the adults who was with Kevin F. when we rented bikes from you July 1st-8th.  We had inadvertently left a seat bag in the rental car that went back a day early, so I swapped you with my personal one.
We’ve located that bag, and I’ll be returning the contents to you in the mail shortly.  It also included one of the bike computers- so I wanted to let you know that we found it and you’ll get it back in hopefully just a few days.
I want to thank you again for the great gear- we found your bikes to be bullet-proof, the trip computers helpful, and everything was in great shape!  What a beautiful part of the world to bike in, we’ll never forget this trip.
Editor’s note- Scouts are so honest.

Framework Racing Wins Provincials

Jeff 2     Framework Racing’s Jeff Muise proved he was the fastest cyclist in the province this weekend when he won Bicycle Nova Scotia’s Provincial Championships held in Riverport  Sunday.
Muise, a 31-year-old resident of Yarmouth, has been racing for Cape Breton’s Framework Racing Team  since 2012. The elite athlete who in his day job is manager of information technology at the Coastal Financial Credit Union in Yarmouth races in Bicycle Nova Scotia’s Class A division which is considered the toughest, fastest and longest distance.
On Sunday, Muise worked hard to get to the podium with team captain Ambrose Delaney of Sydney and Chad Lennon, formerly of Sydney who now lives in Halifax, completing 140 km distance in a time of 3 hours, 20 minutes.
In the last few metres of the race, Muise was in a pack of seven men who broke away from the main group for a sprint to the finish. Muise narrowly edged the group with his wheel crossing the line first, just fractions of a second ahead of  second and third place finishers Jamie Lamb of Cyclesmith and Jakub Koska  of Bike Clinic Cannondale Team, respectfully.
The average speed of Muise over the 140 km bicycle road race distance was 39 km per hour.
“We’re really proud of the team’s effort at this tough race with Muise striking like lightning once again,” team president Bill Goldston said. “We understand there was a massive high speed bicycle crash in Class C that involved about 20 riders, caused  from a rain-filled pothole that racers couldn’t avoid.  Our hearts and sympathy go out to those injured in the pile up.  It was unfortunate and a reminder to government officials that pot holes really do hurt. We understand one rider was thrown off his bike, landing almost into the ocean.”
Jeff     June is shaping up to be an excellent month for Framework Racing’s Muise. He won the Brooklyn, NS road race on June 1 with a time of 2:40:10 just a second ahead of Dustin MacBurnie of Cyclesmith and minutes ahead of Lorenzo Caterini of Craftsmen/Hub Cycle.
On June 8, Framework Racing’s Muise  took top honors at the New Brunswick Tour de Force Saint-Paul Road Race and Time Trial. He narrowly defeated   Andrew Buzzell and Julien Roussel of team Fitworks of New Brunswick. More than 50 participated in that race.
