Obviously, our draft beer service is closed and will remain shut down for the foreseeable future. So we brought in some Russian River Brewing beers in bottles! Build your own sampler pack from the list below, with three prices to choose from.
$40 gets your choice of six 510mL bottles
$75 gets your choice of twelve 510mL bottles
$150 gets your choice of twenty four 510mL bottles and free home delivery within Novato.
Note that these prices are "out the door" and include tax and crv, so option 1 is about the same as Whole Foods current pricing on Russian River beers, options 2 and 3 are both cheaper than WF.

Another Shipment of Buffs Multitubes!
Most people refer to them as Buffs (the brand name of the original product), Endura calls them a multitube. Whatever you call them, they're a great way to keep your face covered in comfort!
Most of the multitubes we highlighted in last week's email were gone in a matter of hours, and we don't expect these to last long, either. They are currently availble in 6 colors, but some colors are more limited in supply than others, so call or cruise by soon for the best selection. This is what we currently have:
These are made of luxurious merino wool. No, not the itchy kind, this stuff is smooth, silky and naturally odor resistant. But don't just take our word for it, check out what BikesEtc had to say:
We Are Here to Keep you Rolling
First off, a HUGE THANK YOU to our customers! We are grateful to have so many people reaching out to see what they can do to support our business as we navigate this challenging situation. Here are four ways that you contribute to the survival of our shop:
Get Your Bike Fixed Bicycle repair shops are considered "essential" businesses and are allowed to continue to operate during this shelter-in-place, so help keep our mechanics busy by getting that old bike in your garage fixed up! Drop it off at our back door, or have us come pick it up. Of course, we are doing extra cleaning before and after the bikes are worked on to protect you and our staff.
Buy Stuff Now You are still welcome to come down and get the bikes, parts, and other gear you need to keep yourself rolling! We are keeping our front door locked so we can meter traffic through the store and ensure distancing. You'll have the place to yourself! You can also purchase items through our online storefront and swing by for curbside pickup!
Buy Stuff Later Yup, we have gift cards, available in-store, over the phone, or through our website.
Tell Your Friends & Neighbors About Us There are a lot of folks who don't know that bike shops have been deemed essential by Marin County, so they may be assuming we are closed. Set them straight! And then there's that neighbor of yours who bought a pair of bikes at a big box store 8 years ago, would love to go ride 'em while their gym is closed, but has no idea where to take 'em to get their old, cracked tires replaced. Please send 'em our way.
