Help New Moon make room for this summer’s new bikes!
This Populo Quest was well-received last year.
Perfect for Urban and Gravel roads
16-speed cassette and crank
Sealed cartridge bottom bracket
4130 Chromoly steel frame
The Quest is a bike that can have multiple personalities and be ready for whatever roads you want to take it on-tackling gravel and blacktop in stride. Its frame and fork are made out of 4130 Chromoly steel, so it’s strong, yet comfortable, on or off road. Quest is equipped with disc brakes, so no matter what trail or type of weather you’re riding in, you can stop on a dime. Shimano’s proven Claris groupset means you have reliable shifting and braking every time and the wide range of gearing that comes standard on the Quest means it can easily carry all the gear you need for your next adventure. Let the Populo Quest expand the roads you ride.
Its 700×32 tires are suitable for rough roads, but the frame and fork can even accommodate wider tires with knobby tread, should you choose to venture onto dirt roads, gravel, cyclocross, etc.
We also have several other bikes with great sale prices including the Troy Road Bike from 6KU.
Give us a call (800-754-8685) to chat about the Quest or the Troy, or stop by for a test ride soon!
Although some of us are currently still enjoying exceptional skiing (it’s us!), we will all be putting away our skis for summer. I spoke with several techs here at the shop, all with years if not decades of experience, about the best way to keep your skis protected and ready for next fall. Needless to say, I didn’t exactly get all of the same answers. A few, I won’t name names, just put their own skis in the garage…that’s it. But, in order to cover all “bases” (see what I did there?) and keep your own skis safe, here is a quick primer on the best way to store your skis for the summer. Look below for photos of the process.

Although I’ve never skied in any of the Birkie events, I’ve been involved somehow for over 20 years: as a reporter, photographer, spectator, support crew, and child wrangler. I’ve interviewed participants, watched them on the trail during the race, and listened to their stories in the shop after the events. Over the years, it has become very evident that each of the Birkie waves has a distinct personality. Have you noticed it while you were watching or as you were skiing? Continue reading What’s in a Wave?
Our area had a brief warm-up last Friday. Trails glazed up a bit, but were otherwise undamaged. Sub-zero temps have since returned and groomers are busy renovating the trails. Cold temps are forecast for this week and trails should return to excellent condition shortly.
The latest field notes from the Birkie team:
Tu, 1.30.18 – (1:00PM) – Today we took another pass grooming and tracking the Birkie Skate trail from American Birkebeiner TH to OO. Birkie Ridge and the loops at OO were also groomed and tracked. Great skiing on the loops at OO and north of OO! Enjoy! Continue reading Trail Report – 1/31/18
It’s not too late to treat your digits to some new Toko Gloves! Ian Harvey has been in charge of the Toko Glove line-up from its inception, and shares a brief video of the various models available this season…
If you haven’t seen this yet, The Birkie Bridge has made the trip to downtown Minneapolis for the 2018 Superbowl Festivities. Add to that nearly a kilometer of manmade snow and a Pisten Bully Groomer and you have the makings for a midwest-style winter party! Here, Birkie Director, Ben Popp, and John Munger with the Loppet Foundation give you the lowdown on ski and fat bike activities taking place around the bridge. And, don’t worry, the Mpls Friday melt did not affect Hayward; we have all of our snow, still.
It’s fitting that a part of the “Super Bowl of skiing” will be part of the “other” Super Bowl. We just ask one thing – PLEASE, PLEASE bring it back to Hayward for the 2018 Birkie!
