September is the best time to ride. Cool nights, warm afternoons, and just enough daylight to get out there, get a good ride in, and get home just as the sun goes down. The only thing that can really make this month any sweeter is a new bike!
We’ve already built-up plenty of 2019s, and that means our remaining 2017s and 2018s are taking up a bit of our floor space. We gotta move ‘em, and you gotta check ‘em out.
We have plenty more in stock, but we’ve picked a few you’re really gonna like. Looking to get out on something new but don’t want to put a semester at a state school’s worth into a new rig? Kona has two solid options for under $1,500, and both models have some new touches added for 2018 from years past. The Kona Mahuna and Kona Blast are both rock solid options that we’ve steered plenty of parents toward for kids that might be growing out of their bikes in the next few years, but still need something that’s going to hold up to some serious shredding.
Already got a hardtail? Get some travel. The NKOTB (that’s ‘new kid on the block’) at CDC, Norco, has a couple of options ready to roll. We’re excited to get Norco’s 2019s in, but that doesn’t mean last year’s bikes are something to scoff at. The Fluid 3 and Fluid FS2+ have limited sizes available, but if these glass slippers fit, you’re going to be pretty happy. The Fluid 3 offers NX 1x11 drivetain with 29” wheels, and is designed for techy trails and big days in the saddle. The plus means more; the FS2+ offers wider tires on a 27.5” wheel for a lower center of gravity and a sturdy footprint on the loose stuff.
There’s also one of our favorite bikes of the year. The Rocky Mountain Element is an ideal trail bike for West Michigan. It’s a cross-country bike for a new era; 120mm travel up front, well-adjust RIDE 9 suspension in the back, and a feathery-light frame to make it up the steepest climbs we’ve got around GR.
