TIME Bicycles Companions with Hammer Down Trip Facilities in Washington DC Metro House


TIME Bicycles is happy to announce a collaboration with Michael Rejent and Hammer Down Trip Facilities and the outlet of the primary two TIME Revel in Facilities in Washington DC Metro.

Every Revel in Heart has the newest in TIME Bicycles merchandise to be had for check journey, demo or condo.

Chuck Peña PEZ sez: I had the chance to wait the comfortable opening of the Hammer Down Trip Heart in Falls Church, VA (positioned throughout the Vida Ciclista bicycle store) all the way through the summer time, in addition to tag alongside on a journey that Michael Rejent arranged for some native riders to check out the fleet of TIME bicycles. The concept that of a “journey heart” is fairly new in america however turning into extra commonplace in Europe as a part of the bicycle purchasing revel in.

As upper finish bicycles get an increasing number of dear, potential patrons are going to need greater than to simply “kick the tires.” And a spin across the block is hardly ever sufficient to present them a way of the way a bicycle will journey/take care of/really feel. Plus a potential purchaser will also be extra intently have compatibility to precise arrange on a condo motorbike moderately than having to journey a motorbike as-is to OEM spec. So the chance to journey a motorbike for an afternoon (or a number of days) makes numerous sense. Particularly if the price of the condo will also be carried out in opposition to the acquisition.

A journey within the town however now not on town motorcycles

A journey heart may be an excellent thought for out of the town guests who need to journey greater than only a town motorbike however for whom bringing their very own motorbike with them isn’t sensible. NOTE: Hammer Down additionally provides (at further value) rider led excursions within the Capital Area to incorporate the monuments, in addition to some nice gravel using (imagine it or now not, one of the crucial ultimate gravel using within the nation is in VA simply outdoor of DC).

Time (no pun supposed) will inform if journey facilities catch on in america. However Michael Regent and TIME are constructive and plan to open extra journey facilities all over the rustic.

I therefore used to be ready to move throughout the Hammer Down Trip Heart web site reservation procedure to hire a TIME Alpe d’Huez simply to peer how the whole lot works. Lovely intuitive/simple and simple peasy. A couple of issues to remember renting a motorbike:

  • I used to be ready to specify an extended stem and that I sought after it slammed (don’t wait till the day you select up your motorbike to do that)
  • You’ll nonetheless want to regulate saddle fore/aft and top (and also you’ll need to come to a decision if you wish to journey your personal saddle)
  • You’ll provide your personal pedals or make a choice from SPD-SL or SPD pedals

Surely now not your conventional condo motorbike
