Fatbike closeouts

Its been a great winter for getting outside and playing in the snow, and like it or not I have a feeling we’ve still got a fair bit of winter left.  Remember April last year?  We’ve got a few fatbikes on hand from Fatback and Surly that are ready to eat up the rest of the winter and keep you smiling into the summer and beyond.  Highlights include Aluminum Fatback complete bikes from only $2000 and Pugsleys starting as low as $1150.  Check out our complete closeout price list below!

Bianchi Sempre Ultegra Di2

“Sempre” means forever in Italian.  And the Bianchi Sempre is a bike that makes you feel like you can ride forever.  Light and responsive full-carbon fiber frame and fork, Ultegra Di2 electronic shifting, Fulcrum wheels, and subtle yet eye catching styling makes this a real screamer.  We’ve got 2 lightly used demo bikes, completely serviced and ready for years of fast, smooth riding.  53 and 57cm available.  MSRP on these bikes is $5000, our demos are priced to fly at $3350.

One for the ladies!

Next up in our demo fleet is a Santa Cruz Juliana.  Its a medium frame, DXC build kit (deore, rockshox, avid).  MSRP $1700, on sale for $900.  We also have an XS size available.  This is a great bike to get into mountain biking with or upgrade your hardtail to see why full suspension is the beez kneez.  All of our demo bikes have been completely tuned and are ready to ride, have low mileage, and are in great shape cosmetically.

Demo Bikes are ready!

We’ve got our demo fleet ready to ride and roll out the door at blowout prices.  First up is this 2013 Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon.  This beauty is a size large, equipped with the RXC build kit (mix of SLX, Deore, XT, Avid) with a Fox fork and rear shock, thru-axles front and rear.  The Tallboy is simply the best 29er xc bike out there.  List price is $4200, our lightly used demo is ready to go for $2850.

Deal of the day

Now through March 1, we’ve got a super deal on the Continental Winter Contact tire.  BUY ONE GET ONE FREE! This is simply the best overall winter tire for commuting.  A soft rubber compound coupled with micro-siping tread pattern really increases traction in snow and ice, without the bulk of a studded tire.  Get a pair now for the rest of the season, or be just prepared for next winter.  We’ve got them in 700×37, 700×42, and 26 x 1.9 sizes.

Closeout and Sale Bikes!

Time for some deals on in-stock bikes. First up is a Surly Pugsley. It is a 2013 model, size 18″ (medium). It is the stock build. Ready to roll out the door for only $1150 (list price $1700). Keep your eyes peeled here in the coming days and weeks for more deals.

Blah, blah

Though I realize that nobody even looks at this blog anymore, I gotta do it.

Some stuff has been flying around (hitting the fan) this week regarding bike mechanics, their level of pay, and their overall worth.

The more I read, the more bitter I got, so I had to write something up of my own. You sure don’t have to agree with me or my point of view, but please take the time to read it.

Death of a Mechanic(‘s soul)

Now that that’s out there, I want to speak up and say a HUGE THANKS to you, Gene and Jennifer. For giving me the opportunity that you did, for allowing me to be the best I could be at my job (I’m not perfect), for trusting me to do things right, and for recognizing my worth as an employee. I love you both.

That is all. Greetings from Fort Collins.
