Dropper owners will tell you-" I never wanted one until I tried one, now I can't ride without it" That's really true!

Lower to descend and instantly raise the seat up when wanted. BTW, We have in stock right now the new Fox Transfer Dropper-

Trek Marlins Have Smart-Fit Sizing

Big wheels roll over rough terrain smoother and cover ground faster. Thats why 29" and 27.5" wheels have become the standard for mountain bikes. Trek offers their Marlin and XCaliber series mountain bikes with Smart Sizing- 27.5" wheels on small and x/small frames, and 29" wheels on medium, large, and x/large. By doing this, the smaller frame's geometry is not compromised by too big of a wheel for the wheelbase. Marlin and XCals are our best selling mountain bikes, and we agree. Check out Trek Marlin and XCals by clicking on the New Bikes Tab

Check Out Salsa's Horsethief Full Suspension 29'er



According to some just-released bicycle industry sales data the fastest growing segment is mountain bikes, led by explosive gains in the new 27.5" wheelsize. Expect that trend to continue as more models in 27.5 enter the market. While we at City Cycle sell lots of 29" mountain bikes, 27.5" bikes will probably pull even with it's bigger cousin this year. Cannondale's Catalyst series (shown in picture) already have become one of our best selling models. In general, the story on 27.5 is that it rolls like a 29er'  but handles like a 26er'. We have models for men and women, hardtail and full suspension. Click on our "NEW BIKES" Tab to see some. Stop in- ride one- and we'll help decide which wheelsize is right for you.

We will let you try a Fabric demo on your own bike for several rides before you lay down money on a saddle you have never tried. Try different ones till the right one is found. Fabric seats are well made and priced equal to other brands. We have helped dozens of area cyclists identify the correct seat with this free service. Call or stop in.

Mountain Bikes for Women

Did you know that nearly every men's model has a corresponding women's version?  At City Cycle, we stock at least 14 different mountain bikes for women from Trek, Cannondale, and Giant! A Women's Specific Design (WSD) is spec'd just like the men's model but will generally fit better. The frames are offered in more small to medium sizes, and things like stems, handlebars, and seats are women-specific in size and shape. One of our brands, Giant, offers a complete line of "LIV" bikes designed with fit, function, and usage built completely around today's female cyclist.
