27.5" Wheeled bikes have arrived!
Our first 27.5" tyred bikes arrived this week in the form of the Rocky Mountain Altitude 730. This bike comes with 6 inches of travel, adjustable geometry and suspension rate, Rockshox suspension and most importantly keeps the price under $3000.
Our feeling on the whole 650B/27.5" bikes is that they work great for longer travel (6 inches) full-suspension bikes such as the Altitude where 29" tires would make it difficult to fit a rider on such a big bike! The Rocky Mountain is available in a full range of sizes from XS to XL while a 29er with that much travel would only come in sizes M to XL. As for shorter travel cross-country platforms, the 29er is definitely king.
New to the store for 2013 are Nirve beach cruisers. We have just assembled the first of these bikes for the floor and will be getting mroe as spring approaches. We like the Nirve brand because of their reasonable prices, good quality and wide selection of styles and colors. Come by to check them out and we think you will be as impressed with them as we are!
We just got a huge shipment of previous years S-Works and Vice helmets from Specialized. The S-Works helmets are a variety of pink, white and blue colors that regularly retail for $290 and are on sale for $120. The Vice helmets lean more to mountain bike styling cues and come in a variety of colors including red, green, camo black, titanium that regularly retail for $110 and are on sale for $65.
Check out these super-cool stem caps that we just got it. Now you don't need to strap your $700 smartphone to the handlebar to see the time or temperature. You choose, there is only room for one. Not everything on your bike has to be the coolest new tech or even neccessary, although these caps sure look neat.
9Zero7 Fat Bikes!
We just got our first shipment of fat bike frames from 9Zero7. We are super excited to get these in just in time for winter which is a prime fat bike season because of the amazing amount of float over snow that the super wide tires provide.
9Zero7 is a small bike company in Alaska that specializes in fat bikes and brings them to the next level of performance with light-wieght hydro-formed aluminum frames and forks. Visit their website at 9zero7bikes.com or come in and check them out in person.
Custom Wheel Building
Did you know we custom build road, mountain and cyclo-cross bike wheels? Our wheels our lighter and stronger than many of the big brand pre-built wheels available. The great thing is that you can totally customize the wheels to your riding style and even pimp them out with white spokes, or colored spoke nipples.
Take a look at the wheelset in the picture - this tubeless ready cyclocross wheelset built for a customer is only 1330g. That is an incredibly light wheelset with the added benefit of being ready for tubeless tires and the aluminum rims can take a hit better than a carbon rim. The customer also chose purple spoke nipples to spice the wheels up a bit.
