Our cyclo-cross frame has been one of our best sellers since we started the biz, mainly because of its ability to be 'the' bike for so many different riders. It is so versatile... Road bike, trail bike, touring bike, kick-ass city bike and of course cyclo-cross.
Itching to quench that wanderlust with an epic tour? Or do you just need to carry stuff on a regular basis?
The Buena Vista is a true mixte frame with the double top tube/stays. Obviously offers lots of standover height and style as well. You'll find the geometry is more sporty, than comfy. Though it can be built up to suit either demeanor. Drop bars? Sure. Moustache bars? Of course.
The first mountain bikes were made out of steel, but that is not why we decided to make these. We chose steel because it offers the best combination of value, comfort, and resiliency of all the popular frame materials. Hardly any folks these days buy a steel frame as their first mountain bike. It's those who've ridden a while and have tried aluminum and full suspension -- who come a knockin'. We do 29ers, 26ers, and 650B'ers.
Before the big brands came up with the jargon, "plush road" or "endurance road", we gave you road frames designed to let you crank along the tarmac for hours or days in comfort. Why endure hours and hours of energy-sapping road buzz to save a half pound of weight. Most of our frames take both fenders and racks, so they are practical as well as speedy.
Riding fixed gear is unlike any other cycling experience. It is fast and precise. It is exhilarating, but demanding. When you experience the spot-on geometry and carefully specced Tange Prestige CrMo tubes of the Rush, you'll understand how aptly named it is.
