What a great story
A splendid day is guaranteed for all! Kansas City's own Mr. Mojo Risin' (Doors Tribute) along with Des Moines own Rocky Raccoon: "A Celebration of The Beatles" will be performing in Ames, IA on Tuesday, July 24th to celebrate The Mucky Duck 5th Anniversary and that infamous bike ride going across Iowa! A grand evening of The Doors, The Beatles, the beer and the most authentic fish and chips around! Join us for the fun!!!
My friend wants a used bike around $100. She is my size, so prob a 54. Any ideas?
Have you worked on Nexus & hubs? Need the three outside pieces to be properly placed on. No tools required.

We are a locally owned bicycle shop committed to helping everyone be stronger, happier, and safer cyclist!

Operating as usual

[10/20/20]   Does anyone out there have a guy/gal that does haul away, or does scrap metal? We need a big o load of metal hauled off.

Folks!
Freds will be closed Saturday 10/10.
Running a small shop is fun but tough and sometimes we are in situations where we can’t cover everything....we know some of you get it and maybe some don’t, that’s ok.

Thanks for letting us help you with all your bike needs....and early voting is open, go get at it!!

Have a great weekend, see you on Tuesday!

I haven't been riding into work as much lately, I have no excuse.

I meant to post these last night, but it sort of slipped my mind until just now. This is our Sunday night 9:00 ride.

We got a bunch of kids bikes in. If you couldn't find one this summer, or you just want to get ahead on Christmas this year. We will be getting some more in later this month also.

We need a little dutch level cycling infrastructure , heck at this point we would even take a little French level infrastructure.

You know you have Dutch level cycling infrastructure, when it passes this 🍺 test.

It amazes me the skills flatlanders and new wave trick riders have these days.

The best I could ever do was give my buddy ride on my pegs.

Here’s a sketchy line from @duncshaw’s latest vlog episode which will be out on his channel later this evening! #streettrials #inverness

[08/20/20]   We have a sizable amount of scrap steel and metal. Does anyone out there know someone who hauls it off, or wants it for the scrap money?

[07/02/20]   We just got word we will be getting some New Jamis stock in in July and September. If you want to pre-order get in to the shop, call, text or do whatever you need to to get in now.supplies will not last.

We are so happy to see some movement on this. We can't wait to go watch the kids use it, my radical days are over.

Here are some construction photos that hopefully brighten your dreary Friday.

Remember, you can always check out the construction progress on our webcam at: https://app.oxblue.com/open/polkco/lauridsenskatepark

We are all world scholars on the internet.

With streets re-opened for a wide variety of users we see an incredible diversity of cyclists return. Good moment to remind us that there are two distinct policy directions to safeguard their safety!

Almost the first words out of any drivers mouth after hitting a cyclist is "I didn't even see you".

Tell me again that we should discipline our children in 'being seen' on our streets. Sorry Mate, I didn't see you (#Smidsy via Fiona Campbell)

Less is more

Our public spaces are scarce. We should use them much more efficiently, especially now.

We hope everyone out there is doing great in this time of Coronavirus, and we just wanted to remind you to keep it rubber side down when on your ride.

"As the coronavirus crisis ravages the country, biking is experiencing a renaissance of sorts, according to data from multiple cities and interviews with half a dozen advocates and urban planners."

[04/18/20]   It is with a sad heart we announce that we will be postponing our annual MayDay AllBike swap meet. We are unsure of when will be rescheduling, but we will be rescheduling. Keep an eye out for the new date and please stay safe out there.

We are not fans of this at all.

Failure to do so would carry a $25 fine.

Vienna is taking swift action in #COVID19 crisis and opens up many streets for pedestrians and cyclists by using in-promptu 20kmh streets. Inspiring!

(via vice-mayor Birgit Hebein)

If you need to get out of the house to get a break or to exercise riding your bike is acceptable, let us help you out if your ride is rough we can tune it up for $75

Please continue safe practices if social distancing. This isn’t a time for group activities.
