Christmas and New Years Holiday Shop Hours

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!

2015 Salsa Mountain Bikes Have Landed

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.
