Suspension set-up guide at Trekbikes.com

Trek’s current line up of full suspension bikes have some of the best technology in the bike biz, but all that technology is lost if your suspension is not adjusted properly for you.  Now Trek has easy to follow guidelines online – check it out here

We’re now carrying Compass Tires!

Looking for the best, fat, high performance tires?  Look no further than Compass.  Fat and high performance you say?  Isn’t that contradictory?  Lots of folks think so, and lots of folks are… ummm… misinformed.  It’s very true that lots of fat tires are slow, but that is due to their construction (made for maximum durability, not performance) not their width.  The term is used far too often in the bike world, but if there is one true “game changer”, it’s wide, high performance tires.  We’ve got everything from 700 x 26 that will fit almost any racing bike, to 650B x 42 (my current fav.) Stop in and check ’em out!

Yet another stellar review of the Trek Remedy 29, this one in Dirt Rag!

“this bike is hands down the best long travel 29er I’ve ridden.”

That’s not me talking, that’s the Dirt Rag reviewer!

and he finishes with…  “This is a must-ride, and I’d recommend any of the carbon or aluminum models with the RE:aktiv shock to just about anyone who is shopping for one of the best trail bikes out there.”

You can find the rest of the review here

Another great review of the Remedy 29 from Pinkbike…

from the summary… “The fact that the Remedy 29’s climbing performance is almost as outstanding as its downhill prowess is what truly makes it such an incredible bike, and I’m not one to use the word ‘incredible’ lightly.”

Open Road is now an Electra dealer!

We are excited to now stock Electra bikes.  For those that are not familiar, Electra designs bikes for comfort and style, not for performance.  From their top selling Townie series, to their eye catching cruisers, to their retro styled Ticino, there is an Electra for everybody!  From just the basics, to super tricked out, the one thing all Electra’s share is high quality parts, user friendly “flat foot” geometry, and a style that can’t be matched!

Stop on in and check them out, or visit Electra online here
