There are many types of “Mountain Biking” so finding the right bike is essential for fun and successful rides. Our staff are avid bikers and are well versed in all the different forms, talk to us and we can get you setup with the right equipment. In most cases the “right equipment” starts with a 29 inch wheel. It’s been a long time coming (we know, we’ve been with 29ers from the start), but the cycling world is starting to realize the benefits of the larger wheel. And because we’ve been with it all along, we know it better than anyone else.
29ers take the edge off a Cross Country, Trail, or Hardtail bike and let you fly down the trail that much faster. They won’t flatten out the mountain, but a 29er will smooth out the rough stuff for the epic All Mountain adventures. 26 inch may still be the best bet for long travel Downhill Bikes, but we’re working on those too, just give it time.

Cannondale began manufacturing aluminum racing and touring frames in 1983, with mountain bike frames added later. The earlier models sported oversized aluminum tubes for increased stiffness, resulting in frames that were super-stiff and super-efficient. Later, carbon fiber composite frames were developed.
Elsworth Handcrafted Bicycles is a bicycle manufacturer based in Ramona, California with manufacturing facilities in Vancouver, Washington. Founded by Tony Ellsworth in 1991, it produces a range of trail, free-ride, and road bikes. Ellsworth also produce a designer/cruiser bike known as “The Ride”
Kona Bikes is a bicycle company in Ferndale, Washington and Vancouver, British Columbia. It specializes in high-performance mountain bikes, racing and touring bicycles. The company name comes from the owners’ love ofKailua-Kona in Hawaii.
“We’ve been building high-performance bike frames since 1981. Each is meticulously fashioned out of premium US-made titanium tubing, allowing us to design every bike to the specific needs of the frame style and individual rider. Our purposeful design philosophy, our knowledge of the unique characteristics of titanium, and our relentless focus on craftsmanship come together in the creation of true lifetime bikes—whether your preference is asphalt, dirt or both.”
It’s more than just a name. It’s our passion.
The 29” wheeled bike isn’t just a token in our line-up. It is our one and only love, our heart and soul out there on the trail.
It’s 100% commitment to a wheel size we believe in, to impeccable designs & exquisite ride quality. It’s a dedication we want to share with you on every ride.
Tom Ritchey applies over 40 years of racing, designing and building steel mountain bikes into all his bikes.
All Ritcheys are born to go fast without sacrificing comfort or durability. Heat-treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic II tubing in Ritchey’s unique butting profiles result in frames that balance rough trail compliance with sprint-winning stiffness.
All the marketing hype in the world won’t make a poorly designed bike handle well. Likewise, all the 3-D modeling software and metalworking technology in the world won’t amount to much unless the people directing it are serious about building truly great bicycles.
Ranging from our sophisticated VPP downhill weaponry to the Spartan simplicity of our new cyclocross frame, Santa Cruz Bikes are the bikes that we ride. They reflect our passion for riding, and they stand as a testament to our ongoing desire to make our rides better. We’re damn proud of them, and we hope you like riding them as much as we do.
Many riders in recent years have used Specialized bicycles in the North American and European professional cycling circuits. In 2010, Specialized is the bike supplier to Team Saxo Bank and Team Astana on the UCI ProTour, the latter deal being announced in January 2010 as a result of team leader Alberto Contador’s demands. Specialized has previously supplied teams including Quick Step and Festina. Until 2008 the disbanded Team Gerolsteiner was using Specialized. Specialized bikes also sponsors the University of Georgia and Colorado State University Collegiate Cycling. Three-time world downhill champion, Sam Hill, Australian rider rides for Monster Energy Specialized.
We’ve got lots of tasty stuff for 2012. We’re introducing two new frames, the Ogre and Moonlander. They’ll also be available as bikes. The Ogre is a 29″ wheel version of the Troll. The Moonlander is like the Pugsley, except it takes even wider rims and bigger tires. You’ll find those in here too. We’ve got a disc brake version of the Long Haul Trucker, also offered as frameset and complete bike. Its rear dropouts are pretty neat and leave plenty of room for fenders and rack. That makes three versions of the Long Haul Trucker: rim brake, disc brake, and the S&S coupled Trucker DeLuxe. All of them got a new fork crown. The Karate Monkey loses its rim brake studs and gets a new fork. The Pacer got a new fork crown, component spec change, and a snazzy new color. The Troll will be available as a complete bike. And that’s just bikes and frames. Take a look inside, and thanks for checking out our stuff.
