Snow has two positive uses: it can be used to build snow jurors when neighbors don't show up to serve in a nonbinding apartment court, and you can ski on it. Test the shredability of snow and other terrains with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of snow, skate, and bike gear, apparel, and maintenance services at Fall Line in downtown Silverton.
Catering to road, trail, and powder enthusiasts, Fall Line outfits X-sporters with a vast selection of air-attaining equipment and meticulous maintenance. Products include decks in designs including blank ($30+) and Dato ($50), which adorn the walls in shades of juicy popsicles, and skate wheels ($18+) fill glass displays like jewel-hued hunks of rock candy. The shop also saddles BMX, road, and mountain riders with an array of bikes while swathing them in T-shirts ($10+) and cozy sweatshirts ($20+) bearing the Fall Line logo. Customers can peruse snowboards ($200+) from manufacturers such as Ride and Sims, and bring in a board or set of skis to get them waxed ($10–$15), achieving the same smoothness as freshly groomed eyebrows.
For over 10 years, the team at Fall Line has stocked and painstakingly repaired bicycles, skateboards, and snowboards inside their shop. They also handpick all the gear that appears on their store shelves, which includes brands such as Free Agent, O’Neal, and Element. Stop in and you can find hoodies, replacement parts such as wheels and tires, and safety gear such as helmets, kneepads, and wipeout repellent.
Each member of Fall Line’s staff is a passionate skater, boarder, or cyclist; they even tapped into their expertise to build a BMX track and skate park at the Oregon State Fair.
