Website Maintenance

We are doing some long overdue website updates. If you are having any trouble navigating the site, or finding what you want, please either give us a call or email and we will respond as quickly as possible. You will see changes happening, as we are keeping our site live while we make the transition.

Last year we added online reservations for bike rentals, and that worked out quite well, helping visitors easily navigate their way to Cape Breton for a weekend, week long, or even a multi-week tour of our Island.

This year, our main objective is to add “web store” functionality, so you will be able to browse our entire inventory, and even purchase for pickup or delivery directly from our website. It will take some time to have full descriptions and pictures of everything we have in stock. It is over 4000 different items. Plus all of the items that are available to order that we don’t normally carry.

There are lots of companies out there that offer eCommerce upgrades, with everything made very simple for a small store. We could hand our website over to one of them and send even more money out of the local economy however, we have chosen to keep this work local, even though it will be a much longer process, it will better for us and better for you in the long run.

In the meantime, if there is something you want, and you can’t get in to the shop, you can phone us at 902-567-1909, email to bill@frameworkfitness.com or even message us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/frameworkcycle and we will try to respond the same day. We do have the ability to manually process a purchase online and deliver it to your door. Hopefully, the whole process will be automated very soon.

Thank you for your patience.

Snowshoe Rentals

We have a great selection of snowshoes available to rent. This is a great way to find out if getting out and having a great time in the winter is right for you. There are several sizes to choose depending on your weight and the type of trails you are going to use. Check the chart to find your size. Don’t worry about it too much. You can easily use a size too big or a size too small. They fit a very wide range.

Add a set of poles to help you motor along a little faster and easier, plus they help maintain your balance in the snow.
