Welcome Back! The Fall Is Upon Us 2017

Posted at August 18, 2017

Here we go again! August is always the most exciting time of the year for us at Clown Dog and probably all of you starting off at or returning to the University of Texas. We have and always will be campus’s best source for bikes and bike repairs. We’ve been at it since the turn of the century and take great pride in the fantastic service and sales we provide for incoming and returning students. We are here for you.

This year we are offering two main Back To School packages at super affordable prices. You always get 10 percent off of any accessories when you purchase a bike from us but these packages sweeten up the deal a bit. There are plenty of bikes out there but we’ve picked out a couple of extraordinary ones that blow the competition away. These aren’t heavy steel bikes or internet bikes that you have to pay extra to get assembled without any service warranty. These are the real deal from the highest rated shop in Austin that is located across the street from campus. That means when you need a flat fixed or a warranty tune up done you can drop it with us and walk to class across the street rather than a mile away from class.

The first is our tried and true SE Monterey 3.0 7 speed hybrid with a Ulock and Giro helmet for $349.99. This is an ideal campus bike. It is an alloy hybrid that is very lightweight and comfortable. It has a nice range of gears for getting up 21st or 24th Street or hauling butt down them to get to class. The seat is super comfortable and the bike’s geometry puts you in an upright, comfortable position. The helmet is Giro’s flagship recreational helmet and is a one size fits all as well as having plenty of ventilation for those somewhat hot days that seem to dominate Austin from late Spring to early Fall. The lock is the industry standard for Ulocks. We recommend 2 locks if you’re leaving your bike out overnight. BRING YOUR BIKE INSIDE AT NIGHT! It has rack tabs so a cargo rack can be installed easily. We’ve been selling these for years and guarantee you will love it. One year of maintenance that covers everything except flats and broken parts is included with every bike we sell on top of the bike’s already excellent warranty.

The second package is an extremely durable and lightweight 24 speed Fuji Absolute 2.1 commuter hybrid. It has a huge range of gears for climbing the steepest of hills or keeping up with traffic around town. Rack tabs on the frame and fork allow for lots of cargo accessories. The seat is comfy and the bike geometry is more aggressive than the SE Monterey so you can really travel further faster and more efficiently. This is a bike we’ve sold for years as well as the Monterey and is our all time favorite for campus transportation. It is both light and efficient to get you where you need to go when you need to get there.

If you already have a bike and need it serviced bring it on down to Clown Dog! We’re fast and affordable. Being a small shop we keep service costs low and our turn around time is days not a week plus. We have everything you need from tires and tubes to grips and brake pads. We’ve always got a smile on our face when you walk in. We’re here to make your day better, your life easier, and your bike run smoother than butter on a biscuit on a cool Texas morning. Come on by and check out Austin’s friendliest bike shop.

Thanks for checking us out!
