Since its doors opened in 2002, the cycle-minded staff at Rochester Bike Shop has provided cycling enthusiasts with bicycles and accessories from top industry brands. The team can configure a full bicycle by Trek, Salsa, or Yeti that fits the rider’s body dimensions and riding style, helping anyone from the rookie cyclist to the hardcore biker who commutes by bike rather than carpooling on top of a coworker’s car. Staffers can outfit the bike with accessories by Shimano and Burley and even provide maintenance services such as tune-ups and suspension fixes when needed.
Playing with improperly fitted golf clubs can create havoc for one’s swing and, ultimately, scorecard. A club that’s too long or too short can decelerate swings, and an improper loft angle can cause slices or hooks. Pure Impact Golf Studio’s technology-driven systems eliminate poorly fitted clubs by measuring players’ swings in meticulous detail.
Inside the 12,000-square-foot golf facility, staff members monitor golfers’ natural movements using TrackMan Doppler radars that track ball trajectories in real time. As they record measurements, technicians modify the clubs by switching out shafts and heads, fine-tuning the combinations until the ideal configurations are found. The final specifications give players the information they need to swap ill-fitting gear with manufacturer-tailored clubs or whittle their own sets out of reclaimed driftwood. The center also helps players fine-tune their games with onsite lessons and fitness-training services.

The Hub’s mechanics-in-training (MIT) program teaches high-school-age youth the fundamentals of bicycle maintenance and customer service as part of an apprenticeship. In addition to gaining practical employment experience, MITs develop social and leadership skills by assisting The Hub's educational staff in training children how to repair bikes during the summer Youth Earn-a-Bike program. Young people also receive a small stipend during their tenure as apprentice mechanics. With additional aid, The Hub can support one of their mechanics-in-training for another month beyond the initial summer apprenticeship.
