Freshie bikes for 2018.

March 28, 2018

There's so much to be excited about for this 2018 season -- including a slew of new bikes currently populating the floor of the shop.

Here's a sampling of what we're peddling/pedaling this season:

 

Urban Arrow Family

We're now a dealer for Urban Arrow! Their Family cargo bike is specially designed for carrying kiddos and will soon be available for free short-term demo as part of the e-bike lending library we're creating with Local Motion and Burlington Electric Department. If you've ever dreamed of doing school drop-off by bike, stay tuned for details. In the meantime come take this thing for a spin around the block. More details on the Family >>

 
 
 

Surly Midnight Special

The Midnight Special is a perfectVermont road bike, which is not surprising considering Surly's tradition of building the sturdiest, most capable bikes. The Midnight Special will have you flying over pavement road like any bike should, but "where it truly shines is on pot-holed, deteriorating pavement and the occasional long stretch of gravel." Sound familiar? "The Midnight Special’s 650b Road Plus tires eat up road chatter and absorb all the bumps in the road." That's road riding in Vermont. More details on the Midnight Special >>

 

Salsa Journeyman

Salsa is lowering barriers to bikepacking with the Journeyman. This gravel/all-road bike offers plenty of places to attach your camping gear and clearance for 650b x 2.2" or 700c x 50mm tires. With two models coming in at $899 and $1,099, it's never been more affordable to get a brand new high performance, super versatile rig for exploring and sleeping under the stars. More details on the Journeyman >>

 

All-City Space Horse Disc

If you're looking for a bike that can do it all, look no further than All-City's Space Horse. It's ideal for commuting, touring, long day rides, and getting around town. With it's utility and classic styling, we didn't think the Space Horse could be any more lovable... but the 2018 model features disc brakes for optimal all-weather breaking performance, 650b wheels on the 43cm and 46cm versions (making it a good fit for riders needing a smaller bike), and a sultry merlot paint job. Insert heart eyes emoji here. More details on the Space Horse Disc >>

 

All-City Electric Queen

All-City says it best: "The Electric Queen was expressly made for maximum fun. It had to be gravity capable, climb like a banshee, cruise across town, encourage you to play in the pump track and dirt jumps, and slay single track like no other... Behold the fruits of our labor: The Electric Queen. The ultimate “Trail” hardtail. Short wheelbase, aggressive trail geometry, 120mm suspension fork, and fits 27.5 x 3.0” or 29 x 2.25” tires... If the Log Lady was our love song to the hardcore single track single speeders, this is the encore dedicated to those who want to destroy everything in their path and launch off everything in sight." Yeah. More details on the Electric Queen >>
