Knolly Bikes Now at Bikeworks ABQ

Dearest People,
We have just become a dealer for Knolly Bikes.

http://knollybikes.com/

They offer an attractive selection of mountain bikes, with an intriguing and unique suspension design, and a solid reputation.  We have heard enough interest in their bikes lately that we wanted to get involved. We are not stocking any models quite yet, but will be receiving a couple of demo bikes to play with soon.

I will let everybody know when the demos arrive.

Transition TR250 In the shop!



We got the new TR250 frame from Transition in yesterday.  We've been excited to get our hands on these since Tony got to ride one last year during his visit to Transition. Check out the details, from http://www.transitionbikes.com/Bikes_TR250.cfm


The TR250 borrows many great race proven characteristics from it's sibling the TR450 to create a tight and responsive short travel DH bike that absolutely rips. Making the TR250 versatile was the top priority with adjustable chainstay length, travel, BB height and head angle, there is nothing on this bike you can't tweak. The suspension features the same great progressive feel as the TR450 but offers adjustable travel settings for two distinct feels at 160 or 180mm of travel depending on your mood. The TR250 is meant to be ridden hard and put away wet since it is extremely easy to maintain. This bike is built for riders that love DH style bikes but are looking for something more playful that is incredibly easy to throw around that can still rail down gnarly downhill lines.

So, there's been a lot of talk and speculation about the conditions out at Cedro. Everybody's hungry for something different!
I know somebody went out to check it out this past weekend. So, what are the conditions like? Let us know please, everybody keeps asking.
