The Monthly “Wrench”:

We are very proud of our service department and would like to highlight one of our newest “master mechanics”.  Bryan Philbrook comes to S&W Sports with 20 plus years of experience, most recently at Apex Velo in Newton Massachusetts.  Bryan is meticulous in his craft whether working on an entry level bicycle or an elite piece of machinery with the latest technology.  A lifetime cyclist who loves to ride “anything in the dirt”.  A quiet but influential presence in the shop, Bryan is an excellent mentor to our younger mechanics.

S&W and the Concord Bike Coalition thank you for your ongoing support! Remember there is a lot of great riding weather left, so if you didn’t find the ride you want and have been considering an upgrade or adding to your fleet, swing by the shop to discuss options with the Sales Crew, we would love to help you get onto the best bike for you to enjoy this Fall!
 


Winter is coming…

September marks our transition to winter as all kinds of new and exciting inventory begins to arrive and we prepare to meet all of your Skiing, Boarding and Nordic needs! Now is the time to start checking your gear to see what might need replacing or updating.  Our annual Ski Swap at the store is scheduled for Saturday, October 13th & Sunday, October 14th.
