Hot off the Stand: Glow in the Dark 29er

The customizable paint finishes on any Milwaukee Bike Co. frame is what sets us aside from the others, and this example is by far one of the coolest I've seen in a while.  Now let's go for a night ride!

Don't move to Texas - AJ Austin

AJ's latest video edit is yet another stellar example of how easy he makes it look to ride a bike well and have fun at the same time, which is what riding bikes is all about.  The :20 mark is a

I've visited Texas before and will do again, but rest assured AJ I won't move there.  Keep up the good work bud!

Hot Off the Stand: Orange One Alfine Disc Brake

  I really enjoy seeing unique builds like this leave the shop knowing the customer received just what they had in mind.  The Shimano Alfine 8sp hub and front disc brake are the two features that make this bike awesome.  Slap some fenders and a studded tire in front and this rig is ready for the winter!

New Products In Stock: ABUS Locks

  We now carry a full line of ABUS bicycle locks!  Whether your bike is worth $400 or it's a custom Milwaukee Bicycle Co. build, you're going to do whatever it takes to ensure it's safety.  These locks will give you the peace of mind you need.
  I'm currently using the Granit Futura 64 mini and I've been extremely pleased with it so far.  I've owned my fair share of u-locks and non of them have been this lightweight while maintaining a high level of security.  ABUS's trap door feature is essential for those that lock up year round in wet/cold climates, because it ensures the barrel is free of water/snow.

Milwaukee Bicycle Co: Arthur's Purple 29er

Arthur is an employee here at Ben's Cycle and I told him not to clean his MKE 29er off before I shoot his bike, because I thought the grey mud on the down tube matched so well.  He also made it a point to mention I needed to take a close up of the stein mug on the fork blade.  There ya go bud!

See y'all on the trails!
