So the workers here at Baltimore Bicycle Works have just finished assembling some killer new models from Surly Bikes. We now have the new Straggler and ECR in stock. We couldn’t be more excited about these shred sleds.
The Straggler is a variation on the popular workhorse bike the Cross Check. The straggler has replaced the Cross Check’s cantilever brakes with BB7 disc brakes, and replaced the 35mm tires for 41mm monsters. The bike also sports an entirely new rear drop out that makes it even easier to run as a single or multi-speed bike. This bike is swiss army knife versatile and available in Glitter Dreams Purple. Can’t go wrong.
The ECR is the latest of Surly’s 29+ wheel size offerings. This off road touring monster is capable of tacking any thing a trail throws at it with 3” wide tires mounted onto a 50mm wide 29er rim. This combination makes it more of a 31er than a 29er.
Do you love bikes? Ever wish you could make a living servicing, selling and learning about bikes. Well this a great opportunity to do just that.
Baltimore Bicycle Works is looking for a new worker to join our cooperatively-owned and democratically-managed workplace. If you are excited about getting people excited about bikes, if you have ever felt stifled at work and wish you had greater influence on the organization, if you have a vision for creating a better bike shop and community, this could be your place.
You will be applying to our full time or part time apprenticeship programs. These programs offer industry competitive pay, benefits, and an opportunity, after completion of the program, to become an equal owner of a dynamic, growing, and fun small business.
Due to the weather, the shop will be CLOSED today, Monday, March 3rd. We plan to re-open tomorrow for our regular hours, 11am to 7pm.

Does this look familiar?
After the winter we are having, many of you may be thinking, “my bike really needs some love and a little less salt”. We’ll your in luck, now through the end of February, BBW is running a $20 off special on all our tune up services. This includes our tune up with drivetrain clean service (aka DTC). During a DTC service, our expert mechanics will remove all your drivetrain components, including your chain, crankset, front derailleur, rear derailleur and cassette, so they can be soaked and scrubbed clean. This ensures your drivetrain is working at its full potential and decreases the chances of premature wear of the drivetrain components. Then we reassemble the bike and complete a comprehensive tune up service. Leaving your bike as good as new, like the snow never even happened.
Details about the tune up special are below. Call to schedule your appointment today or stop by, 410-605-0705.
