New Canaan Ski & Sport™ Launches New Adult and Children's Bike Effort

Top CT Sports Fashion/Apparel and Equipment Retailer Now Carrying Top Quality Bikes and Accessories

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - April 30, 2008) - New Canaan Ski & Sport has decided to significantly expand their Spring/Summer product offerings. The retailer, with store locations in New Canaan and Ridgefield, CT, has opted to offer Jamis bikes as the store's exclusive bike line. Jamis is long known by bike enthusiasts for producing award-winning, best-of-breed racing, street and trail bikes at amazingly reasonable prices.

"This makes all the sense in the world for us," noted Pam Alberino, co-owner of NC S&S. "Jamis and our stores have many of the same core brand values -- longevity, high quality products, strong reputation among their respective loyal customer bases, etc. We want every one of our current and future customers to know that we have great things to offer them year round, and they should come in for a look at some of the most awesome bikes on the planet."

The stores will be offering a full line of children's and adult bicycles and accessories, with special pricing incentives in place throughout the month of May. Additionally, both stores now offer a full service bike shop, with services ranging from bike tune-ups for $59.95, to a six-month free maintenance plan for all new bikes purchased.
