What new line of products would have the tool geeks at Cyclone Bicycle Supply giddy? Abbey Tools! Abbey Tools has kicked down the door of the tool world and is now working on the best way to fix that door. With a focus on creating innovative and lightweight tools worthy of being called “an heirloom tool”, Abbey tools owner Jason Quade dreams in tight tolerance. Each tool is made to fit and the results are amazing. Multiple points of proper contact keep the parts of the bike that are being serviced looking like new, and your customer won’t be bummed with a marred finish. These are shop quality tools through and through, and your head mechanic is never again going to be able to imagine his life without one. If you would like to start with the tool that launched Abbey Tools, get the Crombie Tool and quickly remove cassettes without removing the skewer. It may not sound like much, but you will never miss the time you used to spend on skewer removal. We promise! If you are really lucky, we might even get you a Titanium hammer!
Our fearless Inside Sales Manager Matt Case is off on a great adventure through the wilds of Oregon! The week long self-supported ride ride starts at the train station in Klamath Falls and ends 360 miles later at Deschutes State Park. Highlights include the OC&E State Trail, Fort Rock, the Crooked River, the Ochoco Mountains, and the Deschutes River. The route also includes a stop at the Cowboy Dinner Tree, where 30 oz steaks will replenish all those calories you burned. Matt will be pretty much out of communication while he is gone but will we are sure he will regale you (endlessly!) with the details of his trip when he returns!
Details: 360 miles; 70% dirt

Portland, Oregon based distributor Cyclone Bicycle Supply has gone live with SmartEtailing’s Supplier Sync program. Retail customers can now see many of the products they carry from a subscribing Cyclone dealer’s website using live inventory updates indicating whether a product is in stock “in store” or “in warehouse” and to arrange local pick-up or delivery.
“We see SmartEtailing as the ideal channel for providing our dealers with an expanded selection of product without necessarily increasing their inventory” said Cyclone Bicycle Supply General Manager John Byfield. “With next day delivery to many of our customers, we believe SmartEtailing’s Buy Local Now feature which has been adopted by many of the brands that we distribute, will also encourage consumers to purchase from their local IBD and experience the value added by their experienced staff and service department”.
In addition to the large selection of products available for display from SmatEtailing’s product library, Cyclone Bicycle Supply also carries many hard to find and niche brand products such as Belle Capo Cycling Caps, Early Rider Balance Bikes, and Rubena Tires.
