Getting to Class
Biking is a great way to get around town and to class on time. Savannah is a great place to own a bike, it’s nice and flat, you never have to look for a parking spot and you get a little bit of exercise all at the same time. We have several great options available here at Perry Rubber Bike Shop that will get you to class and the grocery store.
State Bikes Core-Line 4130
Speed, style, and affordability make these bikes perfect for getting to class or the grocery store. With the ability to ride the bike fixed or free and a huge assortment of colors it’s a great fit for most people. As one of our most economic biking options the State Core Line 4130 is easy to maintain and ride. We are also able to put a rear bike rack onto your State Bike in order to increase your carrying capacity. State bikes also have a front and rear caliper brake for all of your stopping needs.
Sirrus by Specialized
If you want a bike that can get you to class and take on a workout then the Sirrus is for you. A lightweight frame for hard workouts, and a fit born from RETÜL Fit science that makes the bike feel like an extension of your body. The Sirrus is ready to help you get fitter, stronger, and to become the better version of you, all while getting you to class on time. We can also add a rear bike rack for added carrying capabilities.
Roll by Specialized
There’s a feeling people get when everything just clicks on a ride, and the Roll is a bike that pulls it all together for you. Take it on the Savannah streets and enjoy the smooth ride afforded by a lightweight frame and Ground Control Positioning. Feel the confidence a wider, more stable tire provides. And ride longer with the RETÜL Fit science that’s gone into the saddles, grips, and pedals. Get out there, get active, and feel it for yourself, a rear bike rack can also be added for additional carrying capability.
Picked a bike? Now you need to get the essential accessories.
Georgia law requires a front headlight and a rear reflector on your bike in order to ride after dark. We highly recommend a light for both front and back. Savannah is a beautiful town, but we have a lot of distracted drivers and we want them to be able to see you, a flashing light will make them take notice. Also have you noticed how dark it gets on certain streets, great mood lighting but not so great for getting around. A powerful and rechargeable light is the answer. And last we heard the ticket for riding without a front light after dark was $75. We have a great selection of lights to fit everyone’s lumen and budget needs.
Savannah is a beautiful town but we have very creative/ opportunistic bike thieves. In order to combat/deter the bike thieves we recommend investing in a high quality bike lock. Although no bike lock is 100% unbreakable the goal is to not be an easy target. We recommend taking your bike inside at night but if this is not an option we have a few great lock styles to choose from.
U-locks are a great option to secure your bike. We always recommend securing your frame and if possible your back wheel. The lock shown also has an extra cable to secure the front wheel. This lock has a key entry and will work well with most frame styles.
The Chain Lock
The chain lock provides equal protection as the u-lock but with a bit of added flexibility. Because this is essentially a steel chain in a cloth bag it provides the flexible to fit larger bike frames while still ensuring security. This lock uses a re-settable combination and is great for people who loose keys.
We understand a bike is an investment and we want to help you protect it. We caution against using thin cable locks for OVERNIGHT use. A lot of thin cable locks can be cut quickly with bolt cutters. Protect your bike, get a good lock!
We always recommend wearing a helmet. If you are over 16 you are not legally required to wear a helmet in Georgia but we highly suggest it. We offer a lot of great helmet options, and the great part is you get roughly the same level of safety no matter the cost. Our favorites to wear while biking around town are:
- Available in small/medium, medium/large and large/x-large sizes designed for easy and accurate fit to a wide range of head sizes.
- Fit system with micro-adjustable dial for easy, secure, and accurate fit.
- 4th Dimension Cooling System optimizes ventilation.
- In-molded shell improves strength and reduces weight.
- Tri-Fix web splitter for improved comfort and ease of strap adjustments.
- Reflective webbing and decals for increased visibility in low-light conditions.
- Patented clip-on visor included.
Rack / Basket
As an student or commuter you are going to need to carry your things back and forth to class and one of the easiest ways is with a bike basket or rack. We have a great variety of options to fit most bike styles, and if we don’t have what you need in stock we are more than happy to order it for you.
We offer a full service repair shop on site. We work on most makes and models of bikes and can do everything from fixing a flat, checking the safe ride-ability of a Craig’s list purchase, to maintaining the highest end of racing machines. We also have complimentary air pumps to use in the shop to keep your tires inflated. Shipping your bike from home? We can assemble it for you, give us a call and have your bike shipped here.
