If my aunt hadn't told me, I wouldn't have known that you can fold this bike and put it in the trunk of a car! I would definitely buy … Continue reading Montague Crosstown mini-review
Several years ago, there was a lonely bus rack. Purchased by cycling advocates to encourage people to use SEPTA buses in conjunction with their bikes, most of the time this bus rack stayed in the back of a dark garage. We agreed to store this bus rack, which ended up being pulled out to the … Continue reading Oh, the places you’ll go with a bike & SEPTA

If you have a secondary use for worn bicycle tires, or know of a nearby facility that’ll give new life to … Continue reading Offered – worn bicycle tires

In 2009, PHEW! opened our doors and began selling electric bikes. In 2010, we began selling Trek electric bikes. Despite proving that e-bikes sell, we found Trek introducing fewer and fewer e-bike models each year. Last year, we had only the Trek T80+ to offer, and that too, in limited frame sizes. This year, get … Continue reading Trek’s back into e-bikes!
You may have heard that Pope Francis will be in town in a few weeks. All the media attention has been around the frustrations of limited car access to Center City Philadelphia. Our City's Commerce Department has even opened a help desk for businesses to continue to flourish during the Pope's visit. All understandable.
