HAPPY THANKSGIVING (and see you Saturday!)

Do please note that we will be closed for Thanksgiving and also for the artificial shopping frenzy session that some call Black Friday.  We think you should refrain from shopping on those days; if enough of us do so, the big boxes will let their staff enjoy the holiday with their families.  Then come to us on Saturday and just let that debit card rip!

IN OTHER NEWS: Trophy stalwarts Bob Burdalski and Nick Manta will return to Pittsburgh on Saturday for their second crack at THE DIRTY DOZEN, a day-long adventure that tackles 12 of that city’s steepest hills. The DD regulations note that if a rider put a foot down on any hill, he or she must go back down and start again… Wish the fellows luck!

SAVE THE DATE: Trophy Bikes would like to see you at our HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE on Thursday, Dec. 17th. We will have adult beverages, salty snacks and more. You can even pick up some warm socks for the ride home if you like! Starts around 5 p.m. and goes till a bit after our usual closing time of 7 p.m.

GOT A BROMPTON? GET ANOTHER!: Announcing an unusual holiday promo at Trophy Bikes.  If you have a Brompton, you already know how good these British-made folders are. You also know that they bear a noteworthy price tag. From now up until the start of Christmas Week, we can help a bit with that part. Bring your Brompton bike to Trophy Bikes and we’ll take $101 off the cost of any Bespoke Brompton special order. (fine print: cannot be combined with any other discounts; must be paid in full at time of order, all sales final) This offer good ONLY through Dec. 22 .  Oh, and while your Brompton is in the shop, we’ll check it over and let you know of any service needs.

"It is with deep regret that I must declare that My Holiness cannot be part of this Saturday's Secular -- aka !
As a forward-thinking bike shop, utilizes any and all advertising media modalities to reach our target demographic: in this case , @upenngapsa and @uofpenn students walking along the 4500 Block of Pine Street. We know Ivy League cyclists need a shop that's available at the start and finish of their long days!
Fun Facts: 1) These nasty little signs (16th below Locust St., W. side) are illegal code violations. 2) If they cut your lock, etc., it's a crime. 3) Probably simple to use a nutdriver to remove them and reinstall them face in. 3B) The metal they're made of feels flimsy and easy to bend. 4) PHL Streets/311 will be sending an inspector out shortly.
BEHOLD! This rig helped us get this classic Billy Preston (who brought his punchy keyboard style to the Beatles' hit "Get Back", among others) vinyl back to where it once belonged: 4 zip ties, 1 foam spacer--and done.
