Because of the unbelievable amount of snow we have received Freewheel will be closed for the day, Monday, February 2, 2015. Regular hours will resume Tuesday, unless the snowpocalypse continues!
|9 King St. W
Due to a national weather alert Freewheel Cycle will be closing early on Sunday 02 February 2015. Some reports suggest as much as 15-25cm of snow. Our store will close by 2:00pm
Please remain indoors, if possible. Your safety is, and always has been, our primary concern.
Hey, do you ride a bike? Well then you should be self-sufficient! This is stuff every cyclist should know!
We teach basic maintenance such as correct tire inflation, cleaning and lubrication of your chain and gears, and of course trail-side emergency repairs that will help you avoid that really long walk home!
Learn to fix any kind of flat! Learn to repair and replace a broken chain. Learn to make a badly bent wheel rideable, and finally learn to identify mechanical issues before they become serious problems.

Boxing day is, much to the dismay of many (I’m sure of it), not a day dedicated to the sport of boxing. We here at Freewheel are okay with that (I’m not sure any of us are particularly good boxers… we’re pretty good at boxing bikes? Does that count for something on Boxing Day?)
As is tradition that we now see, Freewheel will be taking part in some Boxing Day Sales. Any bikes leftover from last year are going at incredibly low prices! Anyone who purchases a new 2015 bicycle will receive 20% off any accessories! Shoes? Accessories. Tools? Accessories. Jerseys, helmets, and locks? Accessories. A WHOLE OTHER BIKE? Not quite, nice try though. We haven’t gone THAT crazy.
Additionally, our hours for Boxing Day are slightly shortened. We will be open from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm. So come on down and ride away with a great deal! (Seriously, you could. Have you seen this crazy weather?)
Happy Holidays from Freewheel!
For some of you the holiday season is already in full swing and many of you have likely done lots of holiday shopping. For others, maybe you are waiting for December 1st. Or later. Say… December 24? You like the thrill of the pressure, much like riding. We have some great specials for you regardless!
ALL of our 2014 bike prices are greatly reduced and we will be available to do fitting as usual with ALL bikes that are sold. To get an idea of what kind of bikes are on sale, take a look at the sale column on the right side of this page (maybe a little bit down from here, but they’re definitely over that way ->… somewhere…)
Any new 2015 bikes sold between December 1st and December 24th will get 20% off ALL ACCESSORIES purchased with the bike! Helmets, jerseys, shorts, gloves, footwear, tools, pumps all these and more will be 20% off with the purchase of a new bike.
In addition, holiday hours will be as follows:
Wednesday, December 24: 10:00am – 4:00pm
Thursday, December 25: CLOSED!
Friday, December 26 BOXING DAY!: 10:00am – 5:00pm
Regular hours resume Saturday, December 27 until
Wednesday, December 31: 10:00am – 4:00pm
Thursday, January 1: CLOSED!
Friday, January 2, 2014 will see regular hours resume again!
Finally, starting January 1st for the month of January we will be offering a winter tune-up special. Our complete tune-up regularly priced at $60 will be only $30! This is an amazing low cost to get your bike back up and running!
As with all industries the bike industry is constantly trying to revolutionize itself, attempting to reinvent the wheel (come to think of it, we quite literally have done that with all these new wheel sizes…). New products come out every day claiming to be the latest and greatest, the most convenient, the best product for your needs. Trek has been doing TONS of research, development, and product testing on new road bike frames, and they have done mighty well. The Émonda line of bicycles is here to be the lightest in each trim level. Resident roadie, employee, and general young whippersnapper Jesse decided to pick himself up an Émonda SLR 9, the second from the top level bike (Émonda SLR 10) and it sure is a great sight to see.
No your eyesight isn’t going (well, it could be but…) this bike weighs only 14 lbs 10 oz. WITH PEDALS! AND A GARMIN!
Given the rather early snowy season we have seen Jesse hasn’t been able to get out on it too much. However, he did have the following to say
“The bike accelerates like no other on the rollers…”
Jokes aside. He did get out on it for a good rip stating
“It just goes. It’s super stiff but also really compliant at the same time. You can just feel when you put the pedals down that it wants to go”
Stay tuned for a more in depth review of this sweet bike! Maybe you’ll even pick one up for yourself! I guarantee you it will be one of the lightest bikes you’ve had, and it will significantly lighten your wallet!

The next Level 1 Bike Maintenance Clinic will be held on Saturday January 10, 12-3:30pm. Learn to do the simple repairs that will allow you to ride home instead of WALK home! Add to that some additional topics including:
-The proper names of your bike’s anatomical bits
-Good bike cleaning habits and techniques
-How to care for and prolong the life of your chain and drivetrain
Please give us a call so we can put your name on the signup list. We need 6 or more confirmed participants in order to run the class.
No need to bring your bike but it’s not a bad idea to bring something to take notes with.
The class costs $25 if you register in advance or $30 if you show up the day of. However, if you purchased a bike from us, we gave you a coupon which gets you into the class for FREE!
We are at Freewheel Cycle, 9 King St W Dundas, ON
