Here's what a recent customer had to say about his experience in our stores:
Customer Service at your Rocky River store was Outstanding as usual last night. I dropped in to see if I could convince my wife to get a new road bike for her. I brought in my Felt road bike to have someone check the bottom bracket noise. I figured I would need to leave it for a few days (the norm with other shops). Your man Adam got it done while we shopped! That was SO great!
Meanwhile, Krista was helping us look at a Giant OCR 3 W. It looked like the ideal bike for my wife, and I have been trying to talk her into a road bike for a while - she cannot keep up with me and some others on her old hybrid; she has been reluctant. Krista was so helpful and supportive! It really helped my wife to hear someone else tell her the same things I have been saying - and it was coming from an experienced FEMALE cyclist! That worked out great.
She loves the new bike.
Thanks again. Please pass along my thanks to your folks! Glad we could do business with you! -- Dave H.
My Daily Cycling Tip by Century Cycles Owner Scott Cowan
Cycling doesn't have to be hard on your hands. Hand pain can signal that your bike needs to be adjusted for a better fit. For example, if your handlebars are too low, or your seat is too high, more weight gets transferred to your hands as you lean forward. Or, if your saddle is too far back you are also putting more weight than normal on your hands. It's also advisable on longer rides to change your hand position often. Always avoid gripping the bars tightly. This exaggerates hand discomfort. The best defense against hand problems can be as simple as a good pair of cycling gloves. These offer beneficial padding in the right places and can also help protect your hands in case you fall.
