We’re receiving more and more 2018 bikes into stock, including the Giant Trace Advanced 2 pictured above. This is arguably the point of diminishing return for big trail or enduro run type bikes. It has the ever-popular and excellent Maestro dual suspension geometry and linkage coupled with the superb SLX 1×11 drivetrain.
A composite mainframe and 150mm of front suspension also compliment this capable ride.
Cost is $4600 plus taxes and we have a size medium built up and ready to test anytime.
If you can’t decide between a road bike and a gravel (or ‘cross) bike the Salsa Warbird might be the right choice for you. If you want to do some local winter riding but want to stick with drop bars this may also be the right choice for you.
The Warbird rides pretty much like a conventional road bike but offers a lot of lateral compliance to help make a rough ride more comfortable, and has clearance for up to 38mm tires (which means studded tires also work well).
The all-carbon frame and fork of the Carbon Apex 1 model help make this a surprisingly light ‘dirt’ bike, also aided by the 1×11 drivetrain.
With 3 waterbottle mounts and hidden fender mounts the Warbird can easily be used for long distance rides but is equally at home on local fitness rides or on the ‘cross course.
The one pictured above is built up and ready to take a look at in the shop at the time of this posting. It’s a medium size and it’s $3500 plus taxes.
We have a handful of new old stock 45Nrth Wolvhammer cycling boots on sale now. This model was released a couple of years ago and has since been updated. The main difference with the new boots is a lace up design as opposed to the zipper and Velcro you see below. The older model is still one we like, and for many of us the one we still use.
Regularly priced at well over $400 we’re selling the older model for just $300 plus taxes. At the time of this posting we have them in stock in sizes 41, 47, 48, and 50.
Of course when they’re gone they’re gone so act soon if you’re interested.
