Product Recommendations from Our Pros: Shop the Top Bikes In-Store.  

Are you an adrenaline junkie looking to buy a new mountain bike? Or do you just enjoy being out in nature and want to take your outdoor adventures to the next level? Whatever the reason may be, purchasing a new bike can be a challenging task. Our bike experts at Epic Mountain Gear are here to help! With over 50 years of buying experience, we’ll walk you through our top bike picks, the benefits of different bike types, and help you find the right wheels for your next ride.  

Before purchasing a bike, you should consider the type of riding you’ll do. Will you be riding on smooth trails, gravel roads, or steep downhill trails? Knowing this will help you determine the type of suspension and tires you’ll need. Bikes with full suspension are suitable for technical terrains, while hardtail bikes are better suited for less technical rides. Additionally, cruisers are perfect for the smooth rider looking to take in the beautiful Colorado views, while electric (e-bikes) are a great option for bikers seeking a boost with pedal assist on longer rides.
