We proudly carry Surly, Liv, Kona, FARADAY + TOKYOBIKE

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

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.

2018 Thrive $970 With hydraulic disc brakes, tubeless ready tires and a comfortable, yet efficient riding position this flat bar road bike creates the perfect combination for security on open roads and city riding, while a lightweight design and the right gearing deliver speed, fun and comfort.

2018 Alight City- $540  With its lightweight and durable  frame and upright flat-bar positioning, the Alight is comfortable enough for a daily commute, but also agile and sporty for longer rides on the weekends. Comes fully equipped and ready to go with fenders, a rear rack, kickstand and even a sweet little bell. An excellent deal!

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. 

We are currently stocking the following models:

Bridge Club - $1199 *COMING SOON* WE LOVE THIS BIKE! This magical unicorn of a bike is designed to be equally capable of both on and off road touring, in addition to  all your everyday riding needs, while not breaking the bank too badly and also looking hot in the process. Similar to the Straggler, this bike is capable of a little bit of everything, but really shines while it's loaded up and carrying you from place to place. 

Midnight Special - $1799 This is the road bike for people who don't *think* they like road bikes. The Midnight Special is a Road Plus bike designed to provide comfort and speed on those all-day rides that extend well beyond fresh pavement. It rides like a cloud on smooth pavement. but that’s expected. Any bike can do that. Where it truly shines is on pot-holed, deteriorating pavement and the occasional long stretch of gravel. The Midnight Special’s 650b Road Plus tires eat up road chatter and absorb all the bumps in the road like the champion it was designed to be.

Straggler- $1545 Looking for that one bike that can do pretty much everything from touring to gravel to cyclocross to commuting? Look no further. This bike is ready to be set up with fenders, racks, baskets and whatever else you need for commuting, touring, camping, gravel riding...and whatever else you want to do with it. As an added bonus, it's available in extra small sizes (38cm!) and it's smaller sizes come with 650b wheels to minimize toe overlap and maximize ride quality for shorter riders. Thanks Surly! (Available in Glitter Indigo or Gloss Black) 

Flat Bar Cross Check- $875 Looking for a bomb-proof city bike that can also handle a loaded up camping trip on the weekend? Look no further. This sleek, steel-framed bikes is one of the most comfortable, versatile, high quality and affordable bikes out there. Bonus: It comes with a rack! (Available in Gray or Cream.)

  • They only just made their way over to the USA in 2016
  • The bikes are based around the concept of 'Tokyo Slow'-- these bicycles are designed to explore the places we love and call home.
  • With a tokyobike, it is as much about the journey as the destination.
