Schwalbe Balloon Tires, What’s the “BIG” deal?

Well first of all, Schwalbe Balloon “Fat Frank” tires look incredibly handsome on just about any bike. Second, they’re made in Germany. Das ist gut, ja? Yes it is!

Traditionally, Cruiser bikes (and many comfort bikes) have Fat tires on them, but not so uber functional a tire as the Schwalbe Fat Frank. Standard fat tires have more rubber on the road; ergo more comfort and stability, but less speed.

Well, Fat meets Fast with Schwalbe’s Fat Frank Tires!   These tires have been specially designed so that they make your ride both smoother and faster, acting like a pneumatic cushion to absorb impacts. These lower air pressure, high volume tires actually have less roll resistance than standard skinny tires making them the Oxymoron of Bicycle Tires.

Fat Franks in 3 colours

And, with Kevlar guard for flat protection, the tires are also lighter which further translates to a faster ride.

Fat Franks can be installed on many bikes with a 26” wheel, not just Beach Cruisers. Electra’s Townie Balloon line come standard equipped with Fat Franks. But ,you can also put these tires on almost any Townie, cruiser or comfort bike.

Electra Townie Balloon 3i Mens'

Available in 3 colours, + NEW Brown with Cream Walls!  Why not come in and test ride a pair of Fat Franks at our Vancouver Bike Shop today!

Simcoe  Bikes have arrived in Vancouver at the Denman Bike Shop!

Inspired by traditional European City bikes and Designed in Toronto, Simcoe bikes are built to last.
They’re a classically styled bike with intuitive geometry, and modern quality components that meet our city transportation needs; and tickle our old school charms.

These are attractive bikes, with attention to style and aesthetic detail.  They’re comfortable and easy to ride on long rolls through the park.  Yet, they’re also something you can really ride in traffic; upright and in eye contact with drivers.

The frames are either full chromoloy or chormoly/steel, depending on the model and they’re durable.  A ride you can depend on with puncture resistant tires, reinforced double wall wheels, and tektro dual-pivot brakes that really STOP, without squealing,

The internal Shimano Nexus 3 or 7 speed gears will provide you with a long lasting, low maintenance and clean drive train, and the fully enclosed chain guards will keep city grease off your pants.

All this in an investment grade bike at a reasonable price.

We have a select range of models and colours in stock now!

A glimpse… of the cool stuff for cyclists at Denman Bike Shop!

Here’s a few gift ideas for you

Lights!

Whether they’re a hard-core commuter, or a casual summer beach comber, any cyclist could use a little more light on their bike for Safety.   There have been so many advancements in lights over the last few years, including USB Rechargable lights and Wheel/Spoke Lights You almost can’t go wrong with your choice..

Gloves!

There are very few truly un-rideable days in Vancouver.  But, one thing that can make any fall or winter ride miserable, is not having a good pair of gloves (or 2 or 3).

Biking gloves vary widely depending on your need for wind, rain or cold protection, and one pair of gloves will probably not meet all of your needs.  Its important to have gloves that are designed for cycling that provide grip, so you won’t slip, have seems that won’t chafe, and won’t be too bulky, so you don’t lose your handlebar feel.

Baskets!

So many to choose from! The Gals AND Guys at Denman Bike Shop know their basket fashion, and can help you find a winner.

If you can’t bring in a picture, try to find out what model of bike it is, the colour(s) and check what the stem and handlebars look like.  Its also important to note if there are gear and brake cables.

Tools!

A good multi-tool, and mini pump might not just save your day, you could save the day for someone else!  Being able to put some air in a flat tire, just to get to the bike shop, can make a real difference.

We’re here to help!

If you have no idea where to start, no worries!  Try to find out what kind of bike your Giftee has, or what kind of cycling they do.   Our experienced staff are enthusiastic about bikes and can help you find something special at any budget.

Still not sure?

That’s OK, we also have VIP Gift Cards – any denomination.

Where you can see Most of our Accessories.  Or come in to one of our Vancouver Bike Shops, where we can help you in person.
