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.”
Saddle Position Spells Satisfaction (Or Suffering) - The angle and position of your bike's saddle directly contributes to your comfort. Sure, saddle height is important. Yet saddle tilt and the saddle's fore/aft positioning also relate to how your hands, neck and back feel when you ride. For instance, if the nose of the saddle tilts too low, gravity forces your torso to slide forward as you ride, putting extra pressure on your palms. Tilted too far back (the saddle nose is too high) pressure on sensitive soft tissue can lead to serious complications and pain. Sliding the saddle too far forward or too far back affects your spine, neck, shoulders, arms and hands. It takes experience (and sometimes a few adjustments) to find the optimum saddle position for comfort and pedaling efficiency. If you're experiencing any saddle discomfort, please contact us to discuss possible solutions.
