Owner, Jason Fenton, issued this Press Release today, 19 August 2014:

Halter’s Cycles to open in Montgomery Township, 1st September 2014

Montgomery, NJ: The owner of long established Halter’s Cycles, Jason Fenton, is pleased to announce the business is relocating to a totally re-purposed and remodeled store in the cornerstone location of Montgomery Shopping Center on Route 206, in Skillman, 1st September, 2014.

Halter’s Cycles opened in 1987 in Monmouth Junction, NJ. Mr. Fenton originally worked in the store from 1992, but went on to purchase the business in 2006.

Mr. Fenton explained this move to the Montgomery Shopping Center.

“This has really given us the opportunity to be more in contact with our customers and closer to local cycling routes and mountain biking destinations. We are looking forward to establishing a base for a healthy and environmentally friendly business in Montgomery.”

The new store has been extensively refitted by The Historic Building Company of Lambertville, NJ, sourcing and reclaiming materials that emphasise Halter’s commitment to sustainable business. It features beams and woodwork rescued from a local Rocky Hill barn to produce a unique look and experience for the customer, while making good use of precious materials.

Halter’s offers an extensive inventory of quality cycles, accessories and apparel for everyone from children and canal path cruisers to committed recreational and competition riders on any type of bike from toddlers’ balance bikes to hi-tech triathlon machines.

Mr. Fenton said, “Each member of my staff is an avid cyclist and our interests cover the whole range of cycling activity from leisure and utility cycling to competing at the highest level. Every bike and accessory from our extensive inventory has been tested by us and our loyal customers. We only sell what works.”

“Every customer’s requirement is unique and we strive to find solutions that are appropriate for anyone. We always ensure the bikes we sell are the right size and will do the job the purchaser wants.”

“We specialize in customizing and professionally fitting bicycles. If you’re thinking of buying a road bike, be prepared to put at least a couple of hours aside so we can do a good job.”

Halter’s also has extensive workshop facilities and can undertake any job on a quality bike from annual tune-ups and flat fixes to complete overhauls.

Mr. Fenton is a steward of the Six Mile Run Reservoir Site and has been instrumental in blazing and maintaining the extensive network of bike trails there.

Regulars to the shop will know Ben Tufford who, when he’s not coaching and advising mountain-bike, road and cyclo-cross riders, drops into the shop and helps out in our maintenance department.

This spring he’ll be running a course promoting safe group riding which will not only be of benefit to budding road racers, but anyone who’s ever ridden in a bunch on a club ride, sportif, or, of course, in any mass participation event.

It will enable you to prepare for your next group ride or race with greater confidence and less anxiety. This will improve safety for yourself and others while promoting a fun experience for all.

Details: Ben’s Safe Racer Clinic will be held at Mercer County Park, West Windsor Township, NJ, Sunday April 13, 2014.

Three diagrams of varying usefulness. Remember, not all bikes have all elements. Some have more, such as suspension components.
