One of my favorite places to go to in Bangalore (and definitely my favorite thing to do there) is the House of Blues in Marine Drive. Of course, you’ve probably already figured out that I’m a huge fan of super cool retro bike posters! But, if you’re a bit nostalgic about those days (or if you just want to feel nostalgic), why not go check out the new House of Blues in Marine Drive?
In fact, that large corporate buyout corporation has bought them all back from their former owner, who just basically ran them out of business a few years ago. And, since then, that former owner has sold the brand back to a new corporation, namely, House of Blues, and now all those amazing discount bikes and other merchandise are back under the same roof as the great originals. You know, the ones you used when you were a teenager. That’s right – back to square one, where your local bike shop still stocks the awesome new mail order bikes and other merchandise.
House Of Blues
But, you may be wondering how they all match so well together. It’s simple: House of Blues puts out some of the most awesome road bikes around. They have a line of bikes that are both stylish and good, complete with stylish graphics, low prices, and of course, discount prices. But the best part about all this is – you’ll get free shipping with your renewed bike purchase!
So, there you have it: a review of House of Blues’ nashbar line of bikes. Now, we would like to know what your experience has been with this line of bikes. Have you been able to save money? Have you found anything lacking? Anything you would change?
Choice For Discount Mountain Bikes
After reading our previous Bikes review, you will know how House of Blues keeps its price tag down while still providing a ton of value. If you’d like to know more about your second choice for discount mountain bikes, check out our new review of their line of road bikes. This time around, we’ve got some things that you might find interesting.
One of the key things about selling a business is getting the word out about your product. In the case of cycling equipment, this means having a solid marketing campaign that makes the whole thing seem very exciting to the general public. Bike nashbars are clearly selling themselves – and getting away with it! This chapter 11 bankruptcy rule applies here, as well. Anecdotal evidence shows that sales at bike shops and sporting goods stores go up after bike nashbar ads are run. The cycling section of most local newspaper classifieds will often have an ad for House of Blues, or similar cycling brand, placed in the classifieds section.
As well, Craigslist is another great source for finding affordable cash. This site is a good resource for finding practically anything that you need. We’ve talked about Bike Nashbars and how they’re one of the best places to find cheap bikes, but we also touched upon the subject of quality. Do cheap bikes really have to be of shoddy construction? Unfortunately, bike shops cannot afford to stock all-carbon, low-volumetric road bikes, so they tend to stock entry level bikes that are designed to get you into shape. The thing is: if you’re serious about competing in cycling events and keeping fit, you want to spend as much money as you can to get the best equipment you can.
