Perfect Build Guarantee

Our Perfect Build Guarantee is the guiding principle we use to determine how we assemble every bike we sell. The process takes about 90 minutes and covers every aspect of the bike. We don’t trust that any detail of your bike is done right until we have done it ourselves. Everything the factories have done, gets redone by a skilled…

Tools Can’t Fit the Cyclist…

Bikes are continually becoming more technological with each new release of the model year. What won’t change, while everything is getting a high-tech facelift, is our unique anatomy. Methods of fitting the cyclist to the bike are advancing as well. Tools used in the bicycle fitting process are also being revamped to make the outcome a better experience for the…

Let’s Talk Conditions…

As hot as southern Utah gets, it also gets pretty darn cold here too! We’ve evolved to operate better in warmer climates–not hot, and neither cold. So, it would only make sense that we naturally prefer to be outside when the 20 degree, grim-sky mornings get replaced by bright and still 60 degree days. Before you start peeling all those…

What’s Your Story?
