THE LEVI’S BRAND AND URBAN OUTFITTERS LAUNCH THE
BIKE SHOP “GET IN THE SADDLE” TOUR IN NEW YORK CITY

The Antlers and Unknown Mortal Orchestra Kick off Tour with Free Concert at
NYC’s Ace Hotel on August 5

To celebrate the recent launch of Commuter by Levi’s, iconic Levi’s products designed for urban cyclists, the Levi’s and Urban Outfitters Bike Shop will travel across America encouraging everyone to “get in the saddle.” Indie bands – the Antlers and Unknown Mortal Orchestra – will kick off the tour with performances at New York City’s Ace Hotel on August 5.

This August and September, a specially outfitted trailer will travel to cyclists’ hot spots offering bike-enthusiasts access to a bicycle tuning center, custom tailoring shop and photo-booth to capture their Bike Shop experience. To check out the Bike Shop tour schedule and get updates from the road, check out: urbanoutfitters.com/levis.

TUNING CENTER: Bike Shop visitors are encouraged to bring their bikes and gear to receive free bike maintenance advice from the onsite mechanic. Services include replacing brake pads, rewrapping handlebars, adding reflectors, inflating tires and fixing flats.

TAILOR SHOP: The tour’s professional tailor will be available to apply 3M reflective straps to garments and make repairs to biking apparel & accessories. The tailor will also produce complimentary bike totes to carry cycling gear. Other freebies include bike bells, custom water bottles, bottle holders, and a set of limited-edition patches designed by artists Misaki Kawai (New York), Geoff McFettridge (Los Angeles) and Matt Leines (Philadelphia).
