Who is Recycled Cycles?
So who is Recycled Cycles? We are you! We are commuters, mountain bikers, road bikers, bmx'ers, weekend warriors. We pull our kids in trailers, go on group rides, race, and cruise casually through the neighborhood. We are here because we love bicycles, we love the feeling you get when you cruise down the path, we love the smells that come from the gardens, kitchens, and fields of Fort Collins. We love the fact that cycling even an hour a week can make you a happier and healthier person!
So what does Recycled Cycles do?
Recycled Cycles has been reconditioning used bicycles and fitness since 1978. We sell new and used bicycles, fitness equipment, accessories, and parts. We offer repair services for bikes of all makes and models as well as fitness equipment. We are here to get every man, woman and child that wants to ride a bike on the road!
Our motto? ROLL ON!
Stay Young, Ride a Bike
Congrats to Christopher Blair for his submission in our “Stay Young, Ride a Bike” $200 Gift Card Giveaway. Christopher gave us this very heartfelt submission!
“Riding my cruiser reminds me of my late grandfather and seeing pictures of him and my grandmother riding their bikes through the streets of Kingsley Iowa. One of the reasons I bought a cruiser was to enjoy riding as much as he did in those pictures. Life is always easier and more calm on a cruiser! If only I could find a wood panel one made for ex football players.”
How To Wash Your Bike (And Keep It Clean Longer) - Before you begin, remove the high-pressure nozzle from your hose because a powerful spray forces water where you don't want it. Instead, just use the hose for rinsing, letting the water run over the bike from the top, never from the side (also, don't invert the bike). Then, fill a bucket with warm water and some mild detergent that makes lots of suds and round up an inexpensive sponge (you might also like some different size soft nylon brushes). If you have one, you can first spray a bike-cleaning solution designed to cut any dirt and grime on your bike finish and parts. To clean the bike, rinse first with the hose to loosen any dirt that would scratch the finish if you just started scrubbing, or use your bike-cleaner spray. Then dip the sponge in the soapy warm water and go over the bike cleaning it and all the parts thoroughly. If it's really dirty you may need to change the water and do it again. Rinse when done and then dry your bike with soft rags. Finally, lube the chain, cables and pivot points to expel any remaining moisture and keep things working smoothly. You can also apply a bike-specific polish to keep grime and dirt from building up as quickly.
