FREE CLEANING for the month of February! With any Tune-Up package you get a free bike cleaning. (Valued at $30-$50!)
Given that February is a relatively quiet time of year for the shop. Rather than send home more employees we would rather encourage some early maintenance for your bicycle. If you bring your bike in now, you will beat the spring time rush, and will be ready to ride as soon as the weather is nice! So come on down and we can help get your bike running in tip top shape! While you’re here you can check out the deals we have going on bikes and accessories!
Just remember: Friends don’t let friends ride a filthy bicycle.
***The Co-Ed Clinic for Sunday, February 12, 2017 has been cancelled due to inclement weather. Stay tuned for an update on the reschedule date!***
Don’t let a flat tire deflate your confidence. Pump up your knowledge with us!
On Friday, February 10, 2017 (Women’s Only) 7:00pm – 9:00pm, and Sunday, February 12, 2017 (Co-Ed) 5:00pm – 7:00pm, join us for a fun, hands-on event to learn everything you need to get rolling again. We’ll demystify all things wheels; from fixing a flat to checking the spokes & hubs to selecting the appropriate tire for your riding style.
Whether you ride tubes or tubeless or aren’t even sure what that means, this class is for you. All you need is $20.00, your bike and a willingness to get your hands dirty. It’s going to be ‘wheelie’ fun!
Space is limited so call or drop by the shop to register. (905-628-5126)
(Our main focus will be mountain bikes but all disciplines are welcome as the principles are still the same.)

Freewheel would like to congratulate our resident women’s offroad cycling advocate and instructor extraordinaire, Mari Evans, for being selected for Trek’s new international Women’s Advocate Program. The women’s cycling community continues to grow everyday thanks to advocacy and coaching from riders like Mari. The Trek Women’s Advocate Program aims to grow women’s offroad cycling and further build the relationship between shops and riders through organizing rides, women’s cycling events, and clinics throughout North America. Trek Women’s Advocates will be stimulating relevant discussion on social media to spread the word about how awesome more women riding mountain bikes can be.
Avid women mountain bikers from all over North America applied to participate in Trek’s advocacy program, and of the 250 applicants, 55 were chosen for their exceptional involvement in their local cycling community, as well as their strong leadership and infectiously positive personalities. Local off-road riders who have met and ridden with Mari over the past 15 years know she is well qualified for this expanded cycling advocacy role. Many of you met her through our very own Women’s Learn-to-MTB Weekend events.
As part of the program, Mari has been invited to Trek headquarters in Waterloo, WI to experience the culture that has made Trek the company that it is today. We think she’ll fit in perfectly! Freewheel Cycle and Trek are both excited to see the Trek Women’s Advocate Program in action. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for news about upcoming women’s social rides, events and clinics.
Few other road bikes offer the same incredible value as the Trek Emonda S4. This bike is perfect for entry and intermediate road riders who refuse to compromise comfort or performance. The frame is crafted from expertly engineered 300 Series OCLV carbon. This means that you can expect an incredibly comfortable ride, however the frame has been beefed up at key points to optimize power transfer and control.
The bike is sensibly outfitted with Shimano’s Tiagra components. The shift levers feature Shimano STI shifting, so the motions to shift the gears are the same as Shimano’s higher end components. Tiagra’s performance is unmatched at this price point.
The frame geometry is based on Trek’s H2 fit, meaning that the rider is positioned with a less aggressive posture. This means that you can stay comfortable on those longer rides. Visit us at Freewheel, and we will size you up to the right road bike that fits your needs. Don’t forget to bring your helmet, shoes and favourite riding clothes for your test ride (or you may borrow one of our demo helmets).
The Trek Precaliber series of kids’ bicycles make riding fun! Unlike a lot of children’s bikes out there, Precalibers are real mountain bikes, just scaled down for smaller riders. The frames are made of lightweight and durable aluminum. Keeping the weight down on bikes for kids is really important because the riders themselves don’t weigh much. Your kids are much more likely to enjoy riding if their bike is light and easy to whip around.
Trek kids bikes feature “Dialed” adjustable components. The brake levers can be adjusted for smaller hands, and the cranks have adjustable length. We know it’s hard to fit bikes to growing riders, and these features make it a breeze!
Bring your little ones down to Freewheel for a sizing and a test ride. Ask us about our kids’ bike trade-in program, and get up to 50% of your kids’ bike’s value in store credit to apply to their next bike once they have outgrown it*.

If you have visited us lately, you’ll have noticed the renovations to our store that are under way. Due to factors outside our control, we were unable to perform these renovations during the slower winter season, and construction got pushed into the spring. Do not fear, as we will remain open while renovating to satisfy all of your bicycle related needs!
*This event has been postponed to Saturday, May 28th. There’s still time to sign-up!

On Wednesday May 18th, our group road ride will be a little different. Now is your chance to try out some of the different flavours of the Opus road bike lineup. Available for demo will be Opus Allegro and Opus Andante bikes in various sizes. Instead of one continuous group ride, we will be leading a series of shorter loops, allowing everyone to try the bikes.
Bikes are available on a first-come-first-served basis. If you have not participated in one of our group rides before, you must complete a waiver before you ride. Helmets are mandatory. You may bring your own pedals, or we will have Shimano SPD pedals, or flats available.
May 18th 2016, 5PM to 8PM
9 King St. W
Dundas, ON L9H 1T5
If you have any further questions about the Road Demo Night, feel free to call us at 905-628-5126.
