Cycle Gear Columbus

Recommended Posts

Cycle Gear opened up a shop in Columbus this weekend and I stopped by today.  Pretty small, by Pony standards, but they had a nice selection of helmets, jackets, leathers, some parts and tools, etc.  (only saw K&N filters :challengeaccepted:) I tried on a set of AlpineStars Missile leathers that fit well and bought some base layer pants and shirt.  I talked with the manager there and they offer discounts for recent "graduates" of the state safety program of 10 or 15% and a better set of pricing for coaches.  Pretty cool.  She seems real interested and able to beat Pony pricing or take back returns from stuff ordered online.  Still probably continue to work with RidersDiscount for a lot of stuff but its good know there is another player in town, I'll be back.

They do host bike nights semi regularly, based on their location, I wonder what that'll be like!  I sense a new meet spot for acceleration testing.  

When I was getting set to leave, a contingent from Columbus Riders showed up, first Pani V4 I'd seen in the wild, an S1000RR, and a couple ZX-10s.

Always nice to have another close option for miscellaneous things you can't wait to get shipped.

The manager of the Columbus store is Taylor, she was at the Cleveland/North Olmsted Cycle Gear previously.  She's awesome and not just because we're friends.  :)

I was confused too and googled it... No results. He probably means Columbus Racing. Maybe there's a riding sub forum. I wouldn't know since I'm not allowed on that gay ass website anymore 😂

It's a facebook group full of mostly squids. I joined for something fun to read while bored at work. There are a couple fast guys on there (including Kerr) but generally just people going on "rides" around 270 or sitting in a parking lot somewhere.

Can I just take a video of doing a wheelie? Will that get me in ok?

On a completely unrelated topic, anyone want to teach me how to do wheelies? 😂

I did some wheelie practice on Memorial Day. 

 

I found out I could use more practice.
