New Bikes

All new bikes must be purchased in store. Each bike is professionally built. Sizes in stock are listed, however, we can custom order if your size or desired specifications are not available. Order times are generally filled within 3 business days. All our bikes are available to test ride and we encourage you to do so. Feel free to bring your kit and pedals if desired. We will fit you to the bike at the time of purchase. All new bikes have a lifetime frame warranty for the original owner upon registration and we include a year of free service for the original owner as well. If you have questions about a bike, size, order options, etc. please do not hesitate to contact us.

Road 

As their namesake would suggest, these bikes handle best and are designed to be ridden on the road, ideally smooth pavement. They generally have skinny tires and drop (curved) bars that offer a wider range of hand positions. Some road bikes are more aerodynamic than others, some are designed for racing, and others are designed with endurance in mind. Regardless of design, if you are a rider looking to put in longer miles (greater than 15) on the road, especially with climbs and descents, a road bike is the choice for you. 

 

Triathlon/time trial 

These are a special type of ‘road’ bike designed to maximize aerodynamics. Essentially, this type of bike works to minimize wind resistance through an aerodynamic geometry and “aero bars” that allows the rider to be more forward and low on his/her forearms. These bikes are most suited in races where the rider will be starting alone or in a staggered start, such as triathlon or time trial races. Because these are designed to go as fast as possible in a straight line, they generally do not handle as well as a traditional road bike.

Mountain

Mountain bikes are specifically designed to ride rougher trails and unpaved surfaces. They will have flat bars, a low gear range to allow for climbs, and some combination of suspension. A “hard tail” mountain bike only has front suspension while a “full-suspension” mountain bike has both front and rear. Hard tail vs. full-suspension is very dependent on rider type, ride motivation, terrain, and comfort level. Hard tails are generally regarded as faster, so riders looking to race shorter distances will often go this route. Riders doing longer distances, rougher terrain, and/or riders looking for more comfort will often choose full suspension.

 

Hybrid

This is a loose term to describe a bike that is some combination of the more traditional bikes types (road, mountain, touring, etc.). There are several difference types of hybrid bikes, but in general these bikes are a great first bike for people and for recreational riders. Read more about the three main types we carry on the inventory page. These types are:

1.Fitness
2. Comfort
3. Dual-sport

 

Touring

A touring bike is a type of road bike that is designed to be more durable on long distance rides. Touring bikes will look like road bikes but typically are more relaxed to maintain comfort over the long distances. Touring bikes will have all mount points for front and rear racks as well as fenders. Those doing long distance tours will easily load their bike to weigh in at 100 lbs. Touring bikes can also double as great commuter bikes if you are a person needing to carry a lot of gear, but not wanting to do so on your body but rather on your bike. 

 

Gravel/Adventure

These bikes are one of the newer categories of road bikes. They are similar to cyclocross bikes in that they can handle many terrain types, including but not limited to, pavement, dirt, gravel, sand, grass, etc. The difference is that these bikes generally have larger tires than cyclocross bikes and sit the rider up higher for more use on longer distances and touring. These bikes are equipped with mount points for cargo and are a great all use bicycle. 

 

Cyclocross

This bike type will often look similar to a road bike in that it will have drop bars and a similar frame shape. This bike has a few unique features, however, that allow it to be used on a mixed surface course. The big difference is that this bike typically has wider tires and different tread that allows it to be used on a cyclocross course, typically consisting of a mix of pavement, dirt trails, gravel, sand, grass, etc.

 

Single Speed/Fixed Gear

A single speed bike has only one gear, but allows the rider to coast. A fixed gear bike also has only one gear, but no freewheel action, so the rider cannot coast. Anytime the bike is moving on a fixed gear bike, the pedals are moving. Many people find the simplicity of these bikes an advantage and will use them to commute.

 

Kids

We carry a variety of children's bikes, ranging from balance bikes, to bikes with training wheels, to mountain style. We do not stock them, but can order kid's road bikes as well.
