Listen to the cat.

Last spring we went from having 12 bikes to work on and, in the matter of one week, over 200. Now, I know that our crew is good but it was impossible to get you back on your bike in our normal repair window, OVERNIGHT, we went to over a month for repairs. To be fair, we have made some significant changes to the shop to reduce your wait time. We have added some new crew members, created more efficient service bays even upgrading our point of sale system to make communicating better. NOW IT IS IN YOUR HANDS.The Fall is the best time to get your bike in. Not only would you avoid the spring rush, but waiting longer can get your bike salt covered and can lead to further repair. We are also offering FREE STORAGE ($50 value) if you bring your bike in for a tune-up now.Like we said above……… LISTEN TO THE CAT.! Need room in your garage? We can store your bike for you.BIKE STORAGE
If you need to make extra room this fall/winter, we can store your bike for $50.00 for the season.

FREE WINTER STORAGE with Tune-Up!
Bring your bike in anytime between now and December 23rd for a tune-up and we will store it at the shop until spring! This means your bike will be all set to roll come those early days of cycling weather in March. No wait, no hassle… just freedom to get out there and ride.We have room to store up to 320 bikes, so take advantage of this opportunity while space permits. For $25, we can even deliver your bicycle to your door this spring!

Stay HTB Strong

We’re excited to welcome our Hometownies back into the shop. It’s June, it’s gorgeous cycling weather, and we have missed you!

After winter – and what certainly feels like a “second winter” – we are pleased to announce that customers are now able to enter our retail and service shops, effective immediately. Yay for some good news!

Here are some things to know as we move forward:

SHOP HOURS

  • For the remainder of 2020, our hours are Thursday – Monday from 10 AM – 5 PM. We are closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

NEW BIKE SALES

  • For NEW bike sales, please call the shop at (810) 225-2441 to schedule an appointment. Inventory is getting low, all across the country, but we do have some bikes in stock. However, so as not to waste your time or get your hopes up, we prefer that you call in advance for us to assess your needs and ensure we have matching inventory to offer. Appointments allow us to best serve you, which is our main goal!

SERVICE

  • Our parking lot still has a queuing area. If you are a service customer, please use the middle entry door. If you are a retail customer for parts or accessories, come in the main front door. And if you prefer we come to you, follow the signage to park in the designated area and call the shop at (810) 225-2441 for assistance. We understand that some of our customers are in high risk groups.

UPDATED PHONE AND TEXTING SYSTEM

  • We’re in the process of updating our phone system. Our apologies for any delays you may experience.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

  • Please practice social distancing while inside the shop by staying 6 feet apart.

Thank you for allowing us to be your hometown bicycle shop. We will be resuming our shop rides soon, so stay tuned for updates!

Resources continue to be limited. We still need your support.

National Bike Month, Do It for Dan & One Hoppin’ Service Shop

Promotional Materials | League of American Bicyclists

“May is National Bike Month, promoted by the League of American Bicyclists and celebrated in communities from coast to coast. Established in 1956, National Bike Month is a chance to showcase the many benefits of bicycling — and encourage more folks to giving biking a try.”
The League of American Bicyclists

With the Michigan stay-at-home order changing to allow bicycle service, we’re happy that we can be there for you. Somehow, this National Bike Month feels a little more special, doesn’t it?


Do It for Dan Memorial Ride - The Horal Family

Do It for Dan

April 25, 2020 was the anniversary of the tragic cycling accident that took Dan Horal’s life. His memory lives on for all of us at Hometown, his family, and friends, and a tight-knit cycling community that thinks of him often. The Do It For Dan Memorial Ride that would have been scheduled for May 3, 2020 has been moved to September 27, 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please like the Do It For Dan Facebook page to stay up-to-date on all of the happenings, to help us celebrate Dan, and to help honor his memory.

One Hoppin’ Service Shop

We’ve officially been open 2 days for service operations, and what a whirlwind! We’ve brought in over 200 bicycles, 130 of which are tune-ups. Every day, we’re making subtle changes to our procedures to be more efficient. Thanks for hanging with us while we figure this out.

To speed up the process, we do have a few requests:

1)  FOLLOW THE SIGNS: When you come to the shop, you will see signs in the parking lot directing you where to go, depending on whether you’re here for service or retail.

2)  SERVICE CUSTOMERS: Please fill out, then print THIS SERVICE REQUEST FORM prior to coming out to the shop, and bring it with you to drop-off.

3)  RETAIL CUSTOMERS: Please park against the concrete wall – one of our sales crew will come out and greet you.

4)  NEW BIKE CUSTOMERS: If you are interested in purchasing a bicycle, in addition to Step 3 (above), please call ahead and schedule an appointment with Andy: (810) 225-2441, Dial 1.


GoFundMe: We Still Need YOU

We’re not in the clear yet! Although the April 24th Executive Order update gives us an opportunity to generate income going forward, resources continue to be limited.

With this change, we are thankful to be able to lower our ask. But because of the ongoing uncertainty, we are still looking for your support:

Stay active. Stay strong. Stay pedaling, Hometownies.

With continuing love and gratitude,
