Well, after some deep, philosophical conversion with the higher ups at Scott Sports, Black Pug Bike Repair is no longer a dealer for Scott bikes. It’s not a decision I’m happy with after 5 years of selling their bikes, but there will be another shop in the Dayton area that has committed to a large inventory and Black Pug was not a stocking dealer, special order only. The folks at Scott didn’t seem it fair that one store commits to stocking a lot of bikes and another doesn’t have to. I get that. However, I still have an account with Scott and can take care of my customers when it comes to service parts and warranty claims. I am grateful for that as I didn’t want to leave you all hanging. A huge THANK YOU to the hundreds of customers and followers of Black Pug who supported me and signed the petition put out their by my good friend and customer Pete Hitzeman! I am truly humbled. Black Pug’s current road bike offerings are from Co-Motion, Lynskey, Carver, Soma, Velo Orange, and for a do it all carbon rig, the Niner RLT RDO. The full list of bike offerings will be updated in January 2020.

Reeb bikes are now available at Black Pug Bike Repair! There’s no better description of Reeb than straight off of their website. “Reeb was founded in 2011 by some folks at Oskar Blues Brewery who eat, breathe, sweat, and bleed bikes. When the boss man’s bike was stolen, the do-it-yourself mentality that pervades OB took over and a bike company was born. We knew that we could make the bikes we dream about and get people excited about them in the process.” Plus, Oskar Blues/Reeb are huge when it comes to giving back to the community. See candaid.giv.sh. And, they were a generous sponsor for our local MVMBA Fast Lap series last year. So, crack open a Dales Pale Ale and check out reebcycles.com. Then, contact Chris at Black Pug to order your Reeb!
Some of you asked, so here it is. Black Pug Bike Repair is now a dealer for Boyd. Boyd Cycling is small rim, hub, and wheel company run in close scrutiny by Boyd and Nicole Johnson in Greenville, South Carolina. Every wheelset comes with a 2 year warranty against defects and a crash replacement policy for an alloy rim of $100.00 and a carbon rim of $250.00 to $350.00, depending on wheel depth. These prices include labor for the rebuild and return shipping. In the event of a total wheel needing replaced due to crash, a discount will be applied. Plus, here’s something I’ve never heard of. Within two years, the crash replacement is not only applicable to the current owner, even if they are not the original owner.
New at Black Pug Bike Repair and just in time for the holidays: Frog Bikes for kids! Frog Bikes are built with high quality components and are made to really fit a child properly. Excellent stand over height, easy to use controls for smaller hands, appropriately sized saddle, cranks, and gearing, and all weigh 22 pounds or less. Plus, they come with a 5 year frame and fork warranty and a 2 year warranty on the rest covering any manufacture defects. Need another reason to spend upwards of $450.00 on a bike for your 6 year old? Consider this. You’ll be able to pass it down to your younger children because it will be durable and professionally assembled and maintained. That department store bike in the garage is probably going to end out on the curb once your little shredder is done with it. No other children to pass it along too? When you purchase a child’s bike at Black Pug, you will get FULL RETAIL PRICE (not including tax) in trade (within 3 years) toward their next bike of equal or greater value until they quit growing! What’s the catch? I want to get my hands on the bike at least twice a year for a tune up, free of charge. That’s it!
