Diamondback Arden 2
$950.00
The Arden 2 pairs the cutting-edge technology of Diamondback's highest-end bikes with a competitive component mix. The end result? A bike that delivers amazing performance at an equally amazing price. The bike’s frame is made from custom formed and butted aluminum tubes that are not only stylish, but also the perfect balance of strength and lightweight performance. The Enhanced Performance Geometry places you in a riding position that is still fast and “aero,” yet upright enough to be sustained comfortably on longer rides. To take that comfort a step further, the Arden 2 is designed with a female-friendly size range and touchpoints. The finely-tuned parts package includes Tektro disc brakes for an extra measure of safety and control and an 18-speed Shimano drivetrain that provides all the gears you’ll need to meet any challenge.
Diamondback Century 2
$950.00
The Century 2 combines cutting-edge technology with a competitive component mix to deliver a bike that’s long on performance and short on dollar signs. The heart of this bike is its custom formed and butted aluminum tubes. Those tubes aren’t simply stylish; they also provide you with the perfect balance of weight savings and strength. Next, Diamondback laid out those tubes using their Enhanced Performance Geometry as a blueprint. While traditional road bike geometry stretches the rider out in as low and long a position as possible, the Century models feature a slightly taller head tube and slightly relaxed head angle, both of which place you in a riding position that is still plenty fast and “aero,” but upright enough to be sustained on those long rides. The Century 2’s components are equally up to the task. Tektro disc brakes and an 18-speed Shimano drivetrain are absolutely uncommon at this price.
All-City Big Block
$999.00
The Big Block represents our vision of the ideal track frame for the modern fixed-gear rider. This is the track bike that All-City has always dreamed of owning and they are proud to make that dream available to you. It was designed first and foremost as a true competition-ready track frame but was destined to see usage beyond the velodrome, so they made some tweaks to the equation. Instead of the track bike norm 25c max tire clearance, it fits a 32c cross tire and has a single set of water bottle mounts for all day in the saddle. The front and rear of the bike are drilled out for a brake, so single speeding (or double brake fixed) is no problem. The proprietary 612 Select double-butted cro-moly steel soaks up bumps and sprints like a champ. Each piece of tubing on every frame size has been carefully scrutinized and specifically chosen to create the best ride possible. This includes butting placement, tubing diameter and wall thickness. The package is finished off with a custom headtube badge, brazed-on seat collar, custom bottom bracket and signature Hennepin Bridge dropouts. All-City added an E.D. coating for rust prevention before applying a classic wet paint finish. Attention to detail is All-City's mantra and it shows in every aspect of this meticulously-designed, beautifully-constructed track racer.
All-City Mr. Pink Frameset
$999.00

The lugged chromoly fork looks classy, rides smoothly, and allows for the use of mid-reach brakes and 32c tires. The Mr. Pink sports all of the classic steel touches you've come to expect from All-City: a custom head badge, All-City signature dropouts, signature brazed-on seat collar, internal top tube cable routing for the rear brake, a pump peg and reinforcement stars on the bottle bosses. These are the signifiers of quality that inform, at a glance, that this is a high-end, hand-crafted machine.

The Arden 3 is a true performer, and the parts that hang from it bear tribute to that fact. Highlights here include a vibration-damping carbon fiber fork, precise Shimano 105 2x11 drivetrain, and powerful Tektro Spyre disc brakes.

Surly Long Haul Trucker
$1,350.00
The Long Haul Trucker was designed in all aspects to go the distance in relative comfort, and to be able to haul a bunch of stuff.

The frame’s tubing is thicker-walled and larger-diameter than standard road and sport-touring frames, and this pre-tunes it for the weight of cargo. And it’s got all the braze-ons, from rack mounts to water bottle cage bosses to spare spoke holders. Like all their frames, it’s made of CroMoly steel. You’ll probably never need to have the frame repaired, but if you do you’re more likely to find someone who can weld steel than someone who can weld titanium or aluminum. Repair carbon fiber in the middle of Mongolia? Good luck with that. The fork has two sets of eyelets on the dropouts as well as at proper mid-blade height, and bosses built into the side of the crown. All this makes the fork compatible with most types of racks, and provides options how you can mount racks and carry your stuff. Surly chose components that balance technical ability, durability, and value. The 3 x 10-speed Shimano Deore/XT drivetrain with Microshift bar-end shifters works well on a fully loaded tourer, will last you a while, and won’t shoot holes in your wallet. Add whatever else you need, like racks and fenders. Go somewhere. Do something. Ride a Long Haul Trucker.
