We proudly carry bicycles from Bianchi, Surly and Liv.

-----------------

Liv

Why we love them:

  • Liv is a new brand focused exclusively on making rad bikes for women, by women.
  • All too often "women's" bikes are just slightly smaller versions of the "men's" models, perhaps covered in a bath of floral patterns, and then rounded out with a downgraded build spec. This is a brand that takes women and their bodies seriously. The bikes are not only designed with sizes and geometry that makes sense, but their component choices are rock solid too. Also, they seem to get that there are more colors in the rainbow than pink.
  • Liv has a huge range that respects everyone from the new rider to the certified bike nerd. 

2017 Brava SLR- $1500  This super-light, women’s specific cyclocross bike with disc brakes is all about performance and versatility. Race it during cyclocross season, commute with it in all kinds of conditions, or use it for long rides on mixed terrain. The lightweight, responsive ALUXX SLR alloy frame features an OverDrive steerer tube for precise steering. The top tube is shaped for shouldering comfort and taking on barriers with confidence. Other features like its D-Fuse carbon seatpost, hydraulic disc brakes, 15mm front thru-axle, internal cable routing and dual water bottle mounts also make it smooth and fast for long rides in adventurous terrain.

2017 Invite 2- $1100  Invite blends the stability, traction and upright riding position of an off-road bike with the smooth efficiency of a road bike. Its lightweight frame offers plenty of stand-over height thanks to its women’s-specific geometry. Ergo-shaped drop handlebars give you better control and the specially designed brake levers offer multiple reach options for comfort and stability.

Surly

Why we love them:

  • This company takes themselves seriously enough to make excellent quality bicycles, but not so seriously that they can't play and have fun with what they do. And that comes through in the bikes: They are seriously fun to ride.
  • Their frames come in a WIDE range of sizes, from 38cm to 62cm, making it such that even the shortest and tallest riders can find one that fits.
  • These are bikes that are strong, sturdy and powerful; they are meant to be ridden in all weather and conditions and are ready for whatever you throw at them.
  • Surly bikes are known for their versatility. Want to swap out your drop bars for flat bars? Sure, why not. Want to add on another rack? Great! Want to get wider tires? Definitely. These bikes make for great canvasses to customize your dream ride.
