Last weekend we offered free shipping on all orders placed in the Bike Touring News Store. We also sent out an email blast to local customers about “Fatbike Sunday”. While we sold no fatbikes we did have a pretty good response and some people who were paying attention and came into the store got some really nice prices on accessories. My point is this: you should sign up to be on our mailing list. We send out an auto-responder which is a bi-weekly text email and we send out a newsletter every month or so. In between, we send out notices of special promotions or upcoming events. So sign up to be on the mailing list. You can use the form below or the form in the right sidebar.
If you would like to get updates when there is a new blog post then get the syndicated feed. That too can be accomplished by clicking on the “Syndicate This” link in the right sidebar or by clicking here.
Thanks for your attention.

They continue to sell bikes in the previous year's colors until they are gone. For 2014 the new Disc Trucker color is burgundy. We just finished this bike [...]
The Ultralight Bike Mirror is made in Germany by D+D Oberlauda and is a consistent best seller in the Bike Touring News store... for good reason; not only is it lightweight (about 2 oz./57 grams) but it will attach to virtually any handlebar. Instead of being inserted in the end of the bar it attaches [...]
