Winter Coat & Sleeping Bag Drive

BRING THE HEAT To Our Bethlehem Inn Winter Coat Drive…

We need your gently used winter coats and sleeping bags to give to the Bethlehem Inn ahead of the winter season. During October you can drop off your donations to FootZone, Pine Mountain Sports, or Patagonia @ Bend and (along that that warm, fuzzy feeling) we’ll stoke you out with credits to spend in all three stores. That’s hot! Our Bring The Heat promo ends Oct 31.

Get Some! Give Some.


We (Heart) Trail Ambassadors

Pine Mountain Sports is committed to the Central Oregon outdoor community and is proud of our decade-old Trail Ambassador Program

While most bicycle shops in town sponsor a cycling team, Pine Mountain Sports chooses to empower riders who share our goal of giving back and actively making a difference in our outdoor community.

In place of matching cycling kits and racing bikes, our team of Pine Mountain Sports Trail Ambassadors is supplied with extra tubes, tools, current trail info, 1st aid kits, and trail knowledge that they share with any trail users in need.

Our small army of Trail Ambassadors can be found leading our group MTB rides, spreading Trail Love, teaching riding and maintenance clinics for new riders, and volunteering at trail work events and fundraisers for Central Oregon Trail Alliance and our outdoor community. Yes, some of our ambassadors race as well, but our goal is to assemble an effective team of individuals who are focusing their time (and our resources) on maintaining the trails and other trail users.

Potential ambassadors are largely identified by their peers. They share a commitment to enhancing every trail user’s experience by their long standing commitment to the Central Oregon cycling community, and by their countless hours of volunteer trail work. If you see someone wearing this Trail Ambassador patch, make sure and say hello and give them a high-five.

This is a recent photograph (below) of the pack belonging to Jeff Newman. Jeff is still sporting one of our original Trail Ambassador patches as he’s been doing his part for Central Oregon trail users since the very beginning.

Thanks, Jeff!

IMPORTANT STUFF: This listing is a work in progress and pricing, sizes, and bikes offered will change. First come – first served. We will accept deposits over the phone but NOT until after Noon on Fri Aug 30. These are demo bikes, so we recommend renting the bike you’re interested in before you decide to buy it. Yes, your bike will still be rented out by us after your deposit is placed. For that reason, deposits are 100% refundable. We do not credit any previous bike rentals towards the purchase of demo bikes or sale bikes – we only do that with new bikes.

All demo/rental bikes will be given our Level 3 Service before you take them home. Worn out parts are replaced. Worn parts are not. Demo bikes that currently have Invisiframe on them (the clear protective film that we put on our carbon demo bikes) will have it removed prior to sale. Demo/rental bikes do not come with the factory warranty that a new bike would have, since the bike is used and you are not the original owner. Consider purchasing our Lifetime Service Plan for any of these demo/rental bikes (or any bike you own) for $200. Ask us if you have any questions or concerns.

Interested in financing? You can ride for 12 months, interest-free, when you finance your demo bike (or any new bike) with the Trek Credit Card before Sep 2! Text TREK to 97788 to easily apply in advance. Offer ends Sep 2. Ask out staff for details.


Cycling & Ski Manufacturers Based in Bend…

Ben Farver of Argonaut Cycles…

As a bicycle and ski retailer that’s staffed year-round by around 25 residents of Bend, Oregon we’ve long been proponents of shopping and spending our outdoor recreation dollars locally. We think we’re all aware of the dramatic impact that shopping and spending locally has on our economy and everybody that lives here.

From buying groceries at our local farmers markets and locally-owned grocery stores to giving our local retailers an opportunity to earn our (otherwise) on-line shopping business to moving all of our banking to a local credit union – there are many things we can do to keep our hard earned dollars in Bend.

At Pine Mountain Sports we seek out amazing vendors who provide us with the best bike and ski products from all over the world. And, more and more, we’re incredibly excited at the number of bicycle and ski hard-goods vendors we buy from who are based right here in Bend, Oregon!

When we all buy our new gear from these businesses (and via a local retailer) then we’re greatly magnifying the impact that our cycling and skiing dollars have on our economy.

Here’s a list of cycling and ski companies that we encourage you to consider when making your next purchase. When we support these local manufacturers via our local retailers we are investing in our community on many levels…

Argonaut Cycles

Robert Axle Project

Spurcycle

Abbey Bike Tools

SnoPlanks

Hope Technology USA

Knight Composites

CushCore

Fatback Bikes

Terrain Control Industries

Magic Cycle Werks

Project 321

This Is Our OSO Rear Shock Dyno

This is our OSO rear shock dyno that’s mounted to the wall of the suspension room in our service department. We use this to check that all of the rebound and compression adjustment clickers on your rear shock are functioning properly and giving you the complete and proper range of adjustment. It also helps us cycle your shock, confirm travel and IFP (internal floating piston) clearance, and test for any bleed or parts issues. It’s not an inexpensive tool, and it’s one of the many ways and reasons that we guarantee all of our service.


Let Us Recycle Your Bike Tires!

Bri, Jody & Kyla (one of our summer interns) with worn out tires headed for the recycling center.

 

Bring your old bicycle tires to Pine Mountain Sports and we’ll recycle them for you at no charge!

The service department at Pine Mountain Sports replaces a lot of worn out mountain bike tires on a daily basis. We know that a full service bike shop like ours creates a lot of waste, so we’re always looking at ways to minimize our trash and recycle as many things as possible.

Did you know that most of the Deschutes County disposal and recycling centers will recycle bicycle tires for $1 each? When you get new tires installed on your bike at Pine Mountain Sports we save your worn out treads and we pay to have them recycled for you at the Knott Landfill.

The staff at Pine Mountain Sports is happy to recycle any of your old bicycle tires for you at no charge! It doesn’t matter if you bought your new or old tires from us. Please don’t throw them in the trash! Just rinse and wipe away any sealant that’s still in them and then bring them by the store. Our staff will add them to our tire recycle pile for our next recycling run.

Got tubes? Our friends at REI Bend collect and recycle old inner tubes! You can bring us your tubes and we’ll take them over there for you, or drop them off directly to the bicycle service counter at REI in the Old Mill.

Let’s all do our part to Rethink Waste in Central Oregon!
