Happy Holidays everyone-- the shop is going to be closed from December 24th until January 2nd. We are going to be spending the time with family, on our bikes, probably in the woods and just generally not working. We sincerely appreciate all of the support in 2015 and look forward to seeing everyone in 2016!
Come join us November 22nd for an awesome day of shredding new 2016 Salsa Cycles bikes. We will be at Blankets Creek mountain bike trails from 10am to 2pm. It is a free event and is open to everyone. Please bring your own pedals, shoes and helmets.
We will have a fire pit to help you keep warm and a grill with simple eats! Because of the event the shop will be CLOSED Sunday the 22nd. Hope to see you there .
Our latest shirts have landed and we are stoked. I'd like to note that they are in fact not black(for everyone that asked for a not black shirt you are welcome) but in fact brown. They are really soft and really awesome. Get one in the shop or in our online store. They are 15 bucks plus 2 dollars shipping domestically. International orders email the shop please.
Time is running out! Grab a kit by August 15th to support the Loose Nuts Cycles Race team (and look awesome while doing it!).
The 2015 model year is coming to a close and this means that you get the opportunity to get on a rad bike for less money! Swing by and check out the in stock bikes that we have on sale soon. Bikes are discounted up to 35% so there are some serious deals to be had. Call or email the shop for availability and pricing.

Happy Holidays everyone-- this year the shop is doing something different around the Christmas and New Years holidays. We will be closing the shop from Christmas Eve after noon and taking the week between Christmas and New Year off. Everyone at the shop will be visiting family, riding bikes, and just generally chilling out. We know that this will cause some inconvenience and for that we apologize. We will return to the shop with regular hours Friday January 2nd. Thanks for everyone's support in 2014, we really appreciate everything that you've done for the shop and look forward to an even better 2015! See you next year-- Chris, Tyler, Kinzer and Em The shop will be closed the following days--
December 24th -- 11am-1pm December 25th -- Closed December 26th -- Closed December 27th -- Closed December 28th -- Closed December 29th -- Closed December 30th -- Closed December 31st -- Closed January 1st -- Closed
We are really excited to announce that we now have the full 2015 Salsa Cycles mountain bike line-up in the shop! Check out the bikes that we've got in the shop and ready for you to rip some trails on! The dreaded Bucksaw -- 4" tires and 100mm of suspension travel front and rear is a guaranteed way to put a smile on your face no matter what the trail ahead of you has in store. Remember, fat bikes are no longer solely for snow! The Bucksaw starts at 4000.00
We have both Carbon and Aluminium versions of the venerable Horsethief in the shop for you to check out. The Horsethief has 130mm of travel up front and 120mm of travel out back. This is hands down my favorite bike, so much so that I flew it out to Iceland for two weeks of back country trails and couldn't have asked for a better platform. You will enjoy pointing this bike uphill as much as going down-- it simply rips! The Horsethief starts at 3400.00
If blazing singletrack or if you've got some cross-country racing in your future check out the Carbon and Aluminum Spearfish. This bike is simply fast. With 100mm of travel up front and 80mm of travel out back it will soak up root littered trails in the Southeast and keep you comfortable and pedaling efficiently all day long. Don't forget that with a few bags added this can also be your North Georgia singletrack touring bike-- be it for a weekend overnighter or an extended off road tour. The Spearfish starts at 2800.00
The El Mariachi for 2015 gained a few colors and didn't loose a bit of versatility. The El Mariachi is the Jack of all trades. Singletrack? Check. Bikepacking? Check. Want it to be a singlespeed? Check. Want to get rad and not break the bank? Check. If barreling down ribbons of dirt is what you want to do without the full of a full suspension rig look no further. The El Mariachi starts at 1500.00.
In addition to all these great mountain bikes we also have all of the version of the Salsa Fargo so if drop bar riding is your thing we've got you covered too.
Wednesday 26 November -- 11am to 5pm Thursday 27 November -- CLOSED Friday 28 November -- CLOSED Saturday 29 November -- 11am to 5pm Sunday 30 November -- 11am to 3pm
Thanks and have a great Thanksgiving
