Covid-19 Update

Until further notice, face masks covering your nose and mouth are required when in the store, unless you have a valid medical exemption. Mask or no mask, everyone MUST maintain 2 meters physical distance from staff and other customers whenever possible. Only staff will be permitted in the work area behind the showroom. If you do not wish to comply, you may leave, however due to physical distancing restrictions, we will not hold the door, so it might hit you in the arse on your way out.

PSA: IF YOU FIND YOURSELF DOWNTOWN WITHOUT A MASK, WE HAVE YOU COVERED

We have a supply of new, reusable masks to give away. If you need a mask, or forgot your mask, just ask at the front counter when you arrive. These are yours to keep and there is no purchase necessary. These face masks are absolutely free to anyone who wants one.

Shop & Buy Online-Right Here

UPDATE: We are trying our best to find weight equipment, but it’s just not out there at this time. To make it less frustrating, we have hidden all out of stock items that we normally carry. When we have access to some weights, benches and racks, we will update our website with what is available. Our best guess is we won’t have much available before the end May. Stay tuned.

You can shop and buy online for local pickup and delivery. Everything that is in stock is on our website. You can make your selection, order and pay on our secure payment platform. It is possible, that our site will show items in stock that are actually sold out. This rare occurrence happens when someone buys online and within a short time, another person buys in person. We do our best to update the inventory everyday but it can still happen. When this happens you will be notified and a refund will be given along with other options.

If you need service, you can start your work order right on our website. That will immediately put your bike in line for service, and your place will be held until you bring your bike to us, or we will pick it up if you choose delivery service.

For a general tuneup, go directly to here: GET TUNED

If you need a specific repair, such as a flat tire, broken cable, a part replacement or installation you can go here: GET FIXED

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.

Let us know if you need anything that is not listed. We are working hard to keep you fit, and keep your bike on the roads and trails.

Dumbbells! Where are they?

We have some exciting news for you. Every day we get calls from people looking for dumbbells, kettlebells, plates, benches, and racks. We have nothing left, and there is very little available. But we have a solution.

We have teamed up with a local company to custom make our own dumbbells. These are very nice quality with a stainless steel knurled handle, with hexagon steel plates. Nice comfortable grip. We can get them in any size you want. To test them out, next week we will have a very limited supply of smaller size 10lb, 15lb, 20lb, and 25lb. If you want a different size and are ready to order, let us know. We will post them in our web store soon, but for now, you can email your request to sales@frameworkfitness.com

We currently have a 10lb sample if you want to try them out. The cost will be $5 / lb.
