Blog: Welcome to the 2015 Web Page!

Vancouver, BC) – The 2015 product launch is a reflection of our mantra, ‘Real Bikes for Real People’. From building the best city bikes on the market to new forays in adventure offroading, we have a bike for everyone.

“We’re in the business of making bikes we can be stoked on”, says Bruce Spicer, Product Manager. “We continually evolve the bikes, depending on technology advancements, our own riding styles, and the needs of our customers.”

We’re excited to add complete builds in our Titanium Rodie and Romax to our lineup, as they are our flagship performance bikes, giving people a life-long frame to race and ride. But another big change to our Speed lineup will be our disc road bikes; as the performance of road disc brakes improves, we can offer bikes with room for a larger tire and fender options, expanding the gear, route and weather options for roadies. Wolff, the stainless steel version of this disc road bike, is a great addition to the Speed series – durable, long-lasting and will never rust! Romulus, Remo and Tiber make the switch, but our very popular Roam, Pace and Pact will use long reach brakes to allow for fenders while keeping a classic style. 

“The new Section.7 [from our Journey line] looks awesome”, explains Bruce. “It’s a city bike but it looks both sleek and rugged”. The colour and design changes to Journey mean you’re getting practicality packaged in a fashion forward bicycle.

Bruce anticipates that the Brodie to beat will continue to be Dynamo, our well balanced choice in Express Series – bikes designed to dominate commutes, rides to the park and trails near and far. We’ve expanded the size range for people of all heights, and it should continue the trend as best-seller for 5 years running.

“This year’s product launch is definitely our most exciting yet”, says Spicer.

With bikes to cover rides to the beach, rips on your local trails, Cyclocross racing and training rides in the West Coast rainy season – we’re excited to have options for everyone that loves to ride.
