So you're ready to buy a smart trainer, but perhaps are overwhelmed by the amount of choices. Direct Drive, Electric Braking, Ant+, Bluetooth Smart, One-Way vs. Two-Way: there are a ton of options, and finding what works best for you can be daunting. That is where your local bike shop is here to help. In this article we will help to explain some of the nuances of the different trainers, what these different features offer, and who they benefit most.
The Eddy Merckx Roubaix 70 and Liege 75. I can always make a case for the modern steel bike. Light, stiff, fast, smooth, and dare I say timeless.
Passing on the Right? Passing on the Left? The Knog Oi bell helps you negotiate the politics of the green way. The new, sleek Oi bell rings true and lets people know when you are coming up behind them.
The Eddy Merckx Sallanches 64 with Ultegra Di2 and Hydro Disc Brakes is a whole lot of bike for the money. It tops our list for affordable dream bike, unfortunately, there is very limited availability on these. We happen to have a size medium and size large in stock and ready to make your next ride incredible.
We have all seen the images, cobbled roads, muddy, snow covered cyclocross races, crazed fans at track races, and lots of cycling passion. It is all true and I get to see it first hand in a three day whirl wind.
If you have been considering a digital drive train and you own a bike that was made before digital drive trains came out, this could be your solution. The super clean, wireless digital shifting system from SRAM, not only works well, but it keeps you from having to run all of those messy cables on the outside of your frame.
The new Bianchi Allroad is a fun bike for every surface of road. If you are looking to get into a disc brake road bike, that has clearance for fat tires and fenders and it needs to be less than $2000, this is it.
Since our beginning fourteen years ago, we have been carrying steel frame bicycles. We love them for their supple ride quality, elegant looks, and durability. Steel frames can be affordable or exotic, and we love that also. Check out some of our favorites from Bianchi, Mosaic, Eddy Merckx, and Pegoretti.
Custom titanium is always fun to build, but this time we got to play with the finish a bit. We also wanted to give the customer a really clean drive train to enhance the look of the bead blasted stripes on his frame.The SRAM Force 1X11 drive train not only delivered the desired look, but it kept the weight of the Mosaic down to 16.5 pounds! We also chose Martindale hand bulit alloy wheels and Challenge 27mm open tubular tire to keep this bike as smooth as possible.
Two months ago, we brought you our Ellsworth Kelley kit, now for July delivery, we are presenting a Frank Stella inspired limited production kit. These are pre order only. We will not stock these in the store. Simply follow the link to the Castelli store front below and pre order your. The store front will ask for a credit card and it will give you the option of having it shipped directly to your home for an extra $15.
Let's face it, modern road bike drive trains work great, but most people still don't understand how to shift from the big ring to the little ring. Never mind shifting, what is trim, and why can't I ride in the big ring in the front and the big ring in the back? Mountain bikes starting moving towards 1X drive trains a few years ago and now we are seeing it on the road. SRAM has introduced the Force 1X group and this summer a yet to be named entry level 1X road group will be available. We have been test riding the Force group for a while now, and we are very impressed.
Assos has long been known as having the best bike shorts and bibs. We are very proud to once again offer Assos clothing at Gran Fondo Cycles. We have both men's and women's clothing in stock.

Gran Fondo and Team We athlete, Kirsten Sass is looking forward to her next season of racing,on her new Eddy Merckx San Remo 76 and EM Lugano 68 bikes. The San Remo 76 is a very aero and stiff race bike perfect for crits, breakaways, and ITU triathlons. After Kirsten's first test ride, she felt it was a bike made for her. She will also be using a Lugano 68 tri bike for time trials and multi sport events, two disciplines that she excels in.

We are proud to announce our new partnership with Eddy Merckx Bikes at Gran Fondo.

Our first shipment features some of their better carbon fiber options.
Foundry makes very light weight and high performance titanium at a great price. The Chilkoot road frame set is double butted and comes equipped with an Enve fork for $2450. We have a variety of sizes in frames and complete bikes ready to go home with you.
