Trek is replacing the front quick release skewers on bikes with disc brakes at no cost. If your Trek bicycle has disc brakes and a front quick release skewer, regardless of when or where it was purchased, please bring the bike in to your favorite Assenmacher store to determine if your bike is affected.
We have new quick release skewers in stock now and and this really important fix can be taken care of while you wait. Additionally, we're offering everyone with an affected bicycle a $20 store credit to be used at time of replacement toward any Trek or Bontrager product. Your safety is important to us so please contact us if you have any further queries. Matt Assenmacher

Get out and ride!
The 2015 riding season, it's here!
It is here. It is time to get those bike tires pumped up and get the season rolling. It is spring so you will need to dress carefully but there have been many days already that have been great for an early season loop or two! We are already starting April so even with a weather surprise or two we can still start building those miles up.
It is time to start planning for the 2015 season. Most of the rides have updated web sites and the LMB ride Calendar has been printed and distributed. Stop by the store to pick up a calendar or a new trail map.
In all weather and temperatures it is important to stay hydrated. It is important to drink while you are riding in cold weather too. The humidity is often much lower so we are losing moisture through breathing as well as perspiration. On longer rides always eat before you get hungry and drink before you get thirsty. It is much better to maintain energy and fluid levels then to try and recover after they are depleted. As the temperatures start to cool it is easy to forget to drink enough water. I try to drink at least one water bottle per hour and more when it is warm out.
The cell phone is one of the most significant improvements in cycling safety ever! Have yours with you on all rides. Keep it charged and have the phone numbers you need at hand. If you have a smart phone learn to use the navigation features and other apps that will help you stay on course and in touch. Many smart phones have tracking features, have someone close to you have their device set up to track you. In an emergency a couple of key strokes will pin point your location instantly.
Keep your your bicycle in shape. Be prepared for the unexpected. Check your tires regularly for wear and damage. Keep them inflated to the correct pressure for the type of riding you are doing. Make sure that you have a spare tube, pump, and you know how to use them. Always carry your cell phone!

Eighty-Six The BVDs - When you put bike shorts on over underwear, you end up sitting on the seams in the undies, which compromise a seamless bike short's ability to prevent pain. Seams cut circulation and form bumps that chafe and hurt. Besides, cycling shorts already include a layer of padding (called a chamois), because makers know you won't be wearing anything under the shorts. Whether you prefer boxers, briefs or bikinis, leave them at home to get all the comfort cycling shorts offer. (Plus, you'll eliminate those unsightly panty lines.) There is one time to always wear underwear: when you're trying on new cycling shorts in the store -- but you probably already knew that.
Cycling Glossary - Word of the Day
chainstay guard –
Anything applied to, or wrapped around the right chainstay to protect it from the chain, which has a tendency to strike that chainstay (and can ding the finish) when you ride over bumps.
