Certified Suspension Service
Far more complicated than carbon frames, extensively more intricate then drivetrain systems, and unarguably held to the highest expectations. Your mountain bikes rear suspension is the most technically advanced piece of equipment on today’s bicycle market. Knowledge, familiarity, and routine maintenance of your suspension components will maximize the overall performance of your bike. And leave you with a better ride out on the trail.
We are excited to announce that we have entered a long term partnership with eecycleworks of California to further expand our portfolio of high end components. Described by media as, “engineering brilliance”, eebrakes are truly in a class of their own. Relentless engineering and precision craftsmanship have resulted in a lighter brake with dramatically higher overall stiffness, better modulation and more power than the current industry-leading offers.
Bike spring tune up!
Trail/Enduro/DH Edition - Road/CX/Gravel Edition coming soon -
Spring is finally here! The winter permafrost has transformed into loam and the overgrowth makes taking the inside line at speed extra sketchy. All of the #pinkbike and #instagram chatter is all about shred this! And cutt’y that! And you figure it’s about time “I get mine”. But before you head out and start schralpin’ the gnar as hard as you were back in November, let’s take a second to go over a few critical maintenance techniques to keep your ride rollin’ smooth. And remember your local bike shop is here to help.
The story of the first threadless headset brought to you by Ryan Palmer of Bike Mag.
Choosing the right rear shock for your mountain bike is an exciting and technical process that is, for the first the most part, subjective to personal riding style. Of course there is the distinction between coil shocks and air shocks, and as well there are differences in shocks designed for never-ending decents or shocks with climbing platforms, or both! This article will help to explain all of the possiblities for matching bicycles with the proper rear suspension component.
Riding a bike that isn't properly tuned can feel bad. What does it mean to get your bike "dialed in"?
High performance suspension systems give you the power to tune your shock based on your individual preferences. Our goal is to take the mystery out of customized tuning and walk you through the steps of defining the perfect settings. Investing a small amount time to dial in your shock will pay off big dividends. No one knows your ride better than you, so take charge and get the most out of your suspension. Don’t be afraid to experiment, you can always get back to the starting point.
Why is everyone always talking about how “slack” their new bike is? What do all those dimensions and angles really mean? What exactly is a head tube angle anyway?
