The ENVE AG25 and AG28 Wheels are Made with Utah Gravel Riding in Mind

Gravel bikes have rocketed to the forefront of bikes most asked about in the shop. There are myriad reasons for this, but one of the most common uses for us in these parts is to connect road with gravel, gravel with singletrack, and singletrack with chunk. Sometimes, a gravel bike...

The OPEN WIDE ENVE Edition is a Celebration of Adventure

Written by Alvin Holbrook, on Mar 03, 2021

Last week, OPEN put out a blog post informing everyone of another collaboration with ENVE Composites, this time for the OPEN WIDE. Most collaborations we've seen in the past from ENVE, SRAM, or Ultradynamico are largely limited to unique paint colors and left at that. This latest collaboration of the...

Forty. Is it more than just a number? For starters, it holds great significance among a number of religions, it's the number of spaces in a standard Monopoly game board, and as of today it's the number of OPEN UP Limited Edition gravel bikes that will be released to the...

Amongst the wide array of road bikes framesets we've had at the shop from Pinarello, 3T, OPEN, and TIME, perhaps the least attention-grabbibng frame we've had on display is this silver and white frameset. While it lacks the immediate flash of a Dogma, or the instant recognizability of an orange...

Written by Cody Wignall, on Mar 03, 2021

As most of you know, we love TIME Sport. For those who didn’t, the cat’s out of the bag. For years we’ve loved their frames for their superior build quality and serious handling chops. While we’ve had our fair share of experience on their impressive line of road bikes, it’s...
