New World Order

Due to circumstances far beyond our control, our retail store is closed to walk-in service and shopping until further notice, however…

We remain open to serve you. We’ve been around for a long time, and we know how to ride a storm. Our entire inventory is available on our website and we are working hard at making it easier to navigate. Online orders can be picked up at the shop during our normal working hours, however we are restricted to curbside service only. Simple enough. Buy what you want from our web store. We will notify you when your order is ready. Then just call us when you arrive and we will bring it out for you to collect. Also, we can deliver right to your door (but not inside) for a small delivery fee. You can order service and tuneups right from our website using the red “Get Fixed” and “Get Tuned” buttons.

If you are having trouble finding what you need, just send us a note by email, or message us on Facebook or Instagram @frameworkcycle and we will give you the direct links to everything you need.

We can accept online payments by Visa, Mastercard, American Express, eTransfer, Paypal, We can even take cash at the door. We are also working on a solution to accept debit at the door. All transactions will be “no contact” which can require patience in certain circumstances. We will do everything we can to keep it simple, but always SAFE.

As you may know, we are very low on bikes in stock, but we have a large quantity due to arrive throughout the spring and summer. You can reserve any bike that we have on order with a small $150 deposit, that can be transferred to any other bike at anytime prior to your original bike’s arrival. Please be aware, the bikes we have on order are virtually all the bikes available to us at this time. If you have any questions about the bikes, or you want to reserve a specific bike, please feel free to contact us by your favourite method. Email us at sales@frameworkfitness.com

Our website is updated daily as inventory is sold and received. If you can’t find it, let us know and we’ll try to track it down for you, but the bike industry is overwhelmed with demand, so getting specific items can take time in certain cases.

In home service such as fitness equipment repair, delivery and assembly is suspended until further notice.

Remember. Outdoor fitness and recreation with social distancing is encouraged in the New World Order. So, get ready to ride, ride, ride!

Please, stay safe everyone.

Bikes Now Available For Pre-Order

Bikes in 2021 are in such great demand that the supply chain is almost completely wiped out. What does that mean? Normally, we would have almost our entire inventory of bikes on hand by now, ready to sell for the upcoming season. But, the backlog in the industry has put those bikes so far behind schedule, some models will not arrive for several weeks or even months. What’s worse is that the only bikes that will be available to us are the ones we currently have on order. That is the same story for virtually every bike shop in the world. We have a very large selection of bikes on order, but as those bikes sell, we will not be able to replace them. In some cases, the demand was so high that we were not able to order any bikes of certain models.

We have decided to compile a list of bikes that we know we are getting and make them available for pre-order. You can browse these bikes on our website. When you find the bike you want, you will be able to reserve it with a 25% refundable deposit. Quantities are extremely limited. The bikes available are listed under a new category in our online shop called “Bicycle Booking”

We do have other bikes on the way, but they have not been confirmed. We will update our website as more bikes become available.

Fill out the form attached to the bike you want, and we will reserve it for you with a 25% deposit. We will send you several options to pay the deposit online through our secure payment platform, by PayPal. or in-person with cash, cheque, credit card, or even gift cards. If you change your mind before the bike arrives, we will refund your deposit 100%. Unfortunately, we cannot give an accurate time of arrival at this time.

Please keep in mind that there are very few bikes available for us to order other than what is listed here. If you want a bike for 2021, now is the time to lock it down. Shop for your bike right here. https://frameworkfitness.com/product-category/bicycles/

YES. WE ARE OPEN!

HOURS:

TUESDAY – FRIDAY 10 – 5

If you can’t come in, or you just want to browse from home:

Turnaround time for service is currently approximately: 2 working days (provided parts are in stock)

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.

Ambrose Takes On The World

Ambrosens health

Ambrose Delaney is ready to set sail for Perth, Australia to take on the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships.

As a well known promoter of health and wellness in Cape Breton, Ambrose had this to say before heading to Perth.

“My name is Ambrose Delaney, I am 55 years old, born and raised in Sydney, Nova Scotia. I have been cycling all my life, currently competing as a CAT A (Elite) category rider throughout the Maritimes representing FrameWork Cycle and Fitness. On May 29th, 2016 I competed in the only qualifying race in North America for the Masters 55 Plus Championship placing 2nd, only 18 seconds behind the winner, qualifying me for the 55 Plus World Championships in Perth, Australia in September 2016. After racing for many years and representing Nova Scotia at Nationals a number of times, this has been by far the biggest accomplishment in my cycling career.

Throughout my life I have always put physical activity at the top of my priority list. While raising three children with my wife Cathy we always gave them the opportunity to participate in a number of sports during their childhood years whether it be basketball, soccer, hockey, golf, hiking or cycling. In the evening or on the weekends instead of being stuck in the house we would encourage them to come out for a bike ride or hike around Cape Breton. By doing this it has instilled in them the desire and importance of living an active life and this has only been a positive impact now as grown adults how they live their own lives. Whether it be going to the gym, golf course or out for a bike ride. The impact my own lifestyle choices have had on them for encouraging to maintain an active life I hope will continue to be passed on to future generations. Even though I have achieved very high accomplishments in my cycling career I have always believed and taught that it isn’t just about what you achieve but that you enjoy whatever activity you choose to do. While raising three children I have always made sure to make time for myself to maintain active myself, making time each day to incorporate a ride or activity into my schedule.

I believe if you live a positive and active life this will only transpire to have a positive impact on those around you impacting on their own decisions and lifestyles. Over the years I have given a lot of my time volunteering in local fitness activities. This including for numerous years coaching different age groups of kids hockey teams, volunteering at local fitness events and organizing cycle events in Cape Breton.

I will use this opportunity to continue encouraging people in Cape Breton to live a positive and active life in their own daily lives. Fourteen years ago I helped form Velo Cape Breton that encouraged cyclists of all ages to be comfortable, learn about road safety and participated in rides. I volunteered countless hours with my wife in activities associated with this group. Eight years ago I became the director of FrameWork Cycling Racing Team, this allowed me to use my cycling knowledge to lead and encourage riders to participate in racing events across the Maritimes which I continue to do today. Many of the these riders have become active cyclists and have gone on to become triathletes after their involvement. In my own daily life I will continue volunteering and supporting local sport and/or fitness actives in my own community and surrounding areas.

Having the opportunity to represent not only Nova Scotia but Canada the Cycling World Championships in Perth, Australia September 4th, 2016 would be a great honour. This would give an opportunity of not only myself achieving a healthy successful life but to impact the lives of others both young and old because of my experiences.”
