One of the best ways to get a new bicycle is to sell your old one with Pacific SBR.
You will have to bring your bike to Pacific Swim Bike Run. Our in house pro mechanic will research and assess the value and give you a quote on your used bike.
After assessing your bike and accepting it to the program, we will put it on our sales floor. Once the bike sells, you have the option to either take the cash minus the consignment fees or apply the credit towards a brand new bike.
You’ll be riding your beautiful new dream machine in no time!
In owning a triathlon store one of the most common concerns I come across is the “the open water swim”. I hear all the time how daunted and scared people are of the open water and how it prevents them from doing a triathlon. My response is,” your right, it is, but anything is achievable with practice and the right mind set”. I could not swim two consecutive laps less than three years ago and I was terrified of swimming in open water. Now, I am proud to say, I am a pretty good swimmer and I am calm when I hit the open water.Read more
So far, January Twenty-Twelve has been one of the mildest on record. Packs of cyclist were out on New Years day enjoying the 50 degree weather and even more were out in the afternoon last Saturday basking in the sun. Who knew, tan-lines could be refreshed in the dead of winter!
Let’s face it, this isn’t going to last and unless you are a dedicated indoor rider (which many of you are), the bikes get packed away until after Punxsutawney Phil comes out and sees his shadow. The winter months are the best time to build your base fitness to make the push into your best season ever.

Pacific Swim Bike Run now offers race distance specific training programs to enable athletes to meet their goals while combining group and individual training plans.
Each program is designed to prepare the athlete to compete in a specific triathlon distance, i.e. Sprint, Olympic, Half Ironman and Ironman, and is led by a USAT certified coach who will work with participants from the beginning of the program until race day.
The program combines online and onsite training where each participant will work with the program’s coach to tailor a plan based on the individual’s goals. The program’s participants will meet with other program members periodically and train towards their event; such group workouts include CompuTrainer sessions, indoor triathlon, outdoor rides, group swims, group runs and more. The programs are designed to work with athletes of all levels and abilities.
Maybe racing toward a Champs-Elysees finish line in Paris or huffing and puffing your way up volcanic Hawaiian hilltops Ironman-style is not within your aerobic range or ambitions. But there’s a way to make your fitness bike rides a little more competitive, challenging, scenic and even climate-controlled.
Multi-rider sports training classes for cyclists who range from serious triathletes to riders who want to stay off the streets are the latest workout rage catching on at fitness centers in Fairfield County. By strapping their own bikes into a stationary platform attached to a computerized tracking system and following carefully calibrated routes, Computrainers allow athletes to add intensity and a multitude of travel options to their rides without ever leaving the curb.
Tour de France, anyone? Most Computrainer facilities have a program that mimics the epic French countryside racing route that made Lance Armstrong famous. If that’s not your speed, how about early morning rides in New York’s Central Park? That’s a simulated option, too.
“I had a solid swim, I tore it up on the bike, and then I fell apart on the run! What
happened? How can I avoid this and have a strong run?” Triathletes typically
respond to this question and problem by running more, running harder, or both,
figuring they are just not very good runners. Sometimes this works—if the
athlete’s problem is simply that they are not as strong of a runner as they’d like to
be. If that sounds like you, then keep at it—there is not substitute for hard work.
But what if you already are a strong runner and you still seem to fade or fall apart
on the run in triathlons? What if you run great in running races, but don’t run so
well in triathlons? In this case, we need to identify what is holding you back and
go over how to solve your problem. Here are five common issues that cause
weak triathlon runs and their solutions.
Want a head start on spring training? Set up a form-focused race simulation at your local gym with a workout from coach Jared Gell of Competitive Instinct Multisport (and Director of Sales of the newly-opened Pacific Swim Bike Run) in Stamford, Conn. His Multisport Brick Class combines all three sports indoors—perfect for those Northeast winters. “Form is of the utmost importance and keep in mind that this is NOT a race,” Gell says. “Instead it is training your body to race well in the spring and summerRead more
