The Groundhog Saw His Shadow, But There’s Good News in Wausau: Winter Clearance On Now at Shep’s

Wisconsinites know winter lasts well into March most years.  While box stores are busy putting out 4th of July goodies right after the Superbowl, Shepherd & Schaller is busy helping you live through and love the snow and cold any month of the year.

When kids are happy, everyone’s happy. Keep them warm, dry and having fun. Shepherd & Schaller is here to help.

Don’t forget the kids.  They grow like weeds don’t they? Stock up on snow pants, mittens, hats, jackets, snow boots and of course ski and snowboard gear.  Why pay more?

Head Ski, Rossignol, Nordica, Salomon, Armada, Line Ski, K2, Fisher, Swix, Giro, Oakley, Burton, Smith…

Patagonia, The North Face, Sorel, Arc’teryx, Spyder, Obermeyer, Roxy, Quiksilver, O’Neill, Toad & Co, Prana, Smartwool, Fits Socks, Swany, Gordini

Bike Here, There and Everywhere on a Fat Tire Bike from Shep’s

Mother Nature frequently likes to throw a wrench in the plans of most outdoor enthusiasts here in Wisconsin.  Sometimes it’s snow, but it could be mud, sand or even ice that spoils cycling season.  That doesn’t keep us off our bikes.  We just go Fat Tire!

Fat Tire bikes take you places you’ve never been able to ride before. Mud, snow and sand are no longer the enemy. (with thanks to Tumblr for the eye catching photo)

Surface conditions aren’t the only reason to consider a Fat Tire Bike.  Comfort might be the feature you love most because riding the bikes is not about speed, unless you make it about speed at one of the popular races or events in the region.  Big, squishy tires give a soft, comfy ride.  Fat tire bikes are rigid and are not equipped with any kind of suspension system, because the suspension is “integrated” into the tires. The elasticity of the rubber helps absorb shocks, increasing comfort. Who doesn’t like comfort?

Looking for a great low-impact workout? Fat Tire Bike frames are heavier than mountain bike frames so it’s true you’ll work a little harder during the ride.  But that’s ok, it’s good for you. Doesn’t a soft quiet ride on a trail in the woods sound like an awesome way to get a low impact workout where you can burn as many as 1500 calories an hour (according to Mens Health Magazine)?  Yeah, we think it does too.

At Shepherd & Schaller we stock Scott and Raleigh bicycles of all styles.  And every bike purchase includes a Free 30-day check up for adjustments and health and a Free 1-year tune-up to make sure you’re bike is healthy and ready for what you require of it.  (a $30 value.)  You’ll also enjoy 20% off bike accessories with your purchase.  Come talk with our riders, including industry expert Pete Kohlmoos, our department manager.  He rides 365 in all kinds of weather, fits and repairs all makes and models.  He’s your man.

Raleigh Pardner, 2017
Sale Price $799.99

Raleigh’s Pardner, at $799.99 (Reg $849), is an affordable way to join the fun.  With a steel frame, bolt-on hubs and 4.1″ wheels this bike will last and last.

Scott Big Jon Bike, $1599

Scott’s Big Jon, at $1599, is the best value in Fat Tire Bikes.  It has an aluminum frame (lighter weight), uses through axels (wheels) and wider tires (even for a Fat Bike) at 4.8″.

Once you go Fat Tire, you may never go back.
