As opposed to traditional roller racing, where riders have to balance, Goldsprints use fixed gear bikes mounted by their forkstands so that the riders don’t have to balance, only pedal as fast as they can. We will be hosting races in the store and giving away prizes to the fastest sprinters!

Much more going on in store, join us won’t you?
