Shocking Offers

Ballwin Cycles' GORC-Only Savings
Helping Keep Your Wheels Turning

Is your wheelset ready to implode? Aluminum not so round and you want some carbon hoops? Is your suspension dry, fork bent, shock blown?  Maybe your suspension just needs some good 'ol maintenance.

Keep reading because you're in luck.

Ballwin Cycles knows GORC members and volunteers put in a lot of hard work building and maintaining our local singletrack. Besides offering a great prize (complete bike!) for our Build Skinny, Ride Fat fall raffle, Ballwin Cycles is also announcing a suspension overhaul and wheel building deal that's sweet.

First the fine print: You must be a current paid GORC member to receive the discounts and you must present your GORC membership card at the time of service.

Ballwin Cycles is offering a 50% labor discount on all suspension overhauls and 50% off labor on all wheel building projects. They also have a great GORC member discount on all other components and bikes when you mention and present your GORC card.

This deal is valid from January 1-31, 2017 but you can contact them to schedule or ask any questions you may have. We're thankful to have local shops support our trail building efforts and we hope you stop by Ballwin Cycles and see what they are all about - not to mention the Niner and Salsa lines in stock and high-end components and wheelsets ready to hit dirt.
