Dear Castle Hill Cycles friends,
As we celebrate our most recent milestone- marking the first 10 years of selling Pinarello bikes and providing high-quality service to the Austin bike community, we have decided to make a shift in our organization. We are handing off the retail aspect of the business to another well-known local bike shop, and simply continuing the service/ fitting aspect of what you have come to know and love.
As of April 1, 2015, we have discontinued accepting orders for new Pinarello bikes. Of course, we will complete all open orders and ensure that your new Pinarello bicycle arrives to you in perfect condition with the quality standards you've come to trust and rely on. We have been working closely with Gita Sporting Goods as they make final decision on which Bike shop will continue to represent this high-performing Pinarello brand in the Austin market.
Gordon Yang, our world class specialized bike mechanic, will be our point man through this transition. He will be transforming his role into becoming our full-time on-site Facilities Operations Manager. Castle Hill Fitness is fortunate to welcome him into this new role. He will continue to be available to provide you specific bike mechanic work at Castle Hill Fitness, but this service will be by appointment only.
Jerry Gerlich will continue to work his wonders in providing his bike fitting and body assessment services back in his office as well. We are retaining the Castle Hill Cycles brand, which will continue its existence in a slightly modified form. Gordon and Jerry have great ideas for hosting group rides and offer mechanical clinics in the near future, so make sure to stay tuned. Again, we are letting go of the retail aspect of the business only and instead will just offer bicycle related services, be it a tune-up and repairs, or a comprehensive bike fit.
So, as we take month of April and May to slowly close out the retail portion of our business, we will run a liquidation sale on all the items that we have in stock.
Therefore, if you are still in the market for a Pinarello bike, this is your chance! Make sure to check out our list of closeout bikes here.
We would like to thank all of you for your support and business these past 10 years.
