Fatback Skookum FLT
With the explosion of fat biking off the snow and on to trails Fatback was not satisfied with just bringing another a fat bike to market. The crew at Fatback wanted to stay ahead of the others and create the highest performance fat bike available. Fatback's next logical step was taking the Amazing platform of the Skookum and making it even better. Carbon is a wonderful thing; we've chosen the best materials and have meticulously adjusted the layup to create a highly tuned perfectly handling ride
Our take: This is no snow bike. This is a trail bike that works amazingly in snow. The 68.5 degree head-tube angle is perfect for East Coast trails both going up and going down. The internal routing for a dropper post should be a good indication as to what Fatback was thinking when they designed this bike. The Skookum is one of our best selling fatbikes and if you're looking for the same handling bike with a lighter frame, the FLT is for you.
Yeti Cycles SB5.5
The East Coast Quiver Killer!
Forget any preconceived notions about 29ers, thanks to an impeccable frame design, shortened chain stays and an aggressive suspension spec, the SB5.5 is easy to maneuver and feels lively on the descents.
Our take: This bike needs speed! It also needs rocks, roots, and East Coast "chunder". Like the Yeti, a 160mm travel bike that can climb used to be a mythical beast that was only rumored to exist. No more. This beast exists and is at the WORKSHOP ready for you to demo at your local trail.
Trek Super Commuter +
There’s no reason to hit the snooze button when your morning commute feels like a dream. Super Commuter+ is the electric bicycle that makes getting where you need to go exactly where you want to be.
Our take: A helmet is required for a test ride because this e-bike is fast. It easily gets up to 28 MPH without much effort. With the super juicy 27.5x2.4" tires, it rolls over potholes, turns corners, and handles wet weather like a super commuter should. This bike will make it into Manhattan from Tenafly in a blistering 20-25 minutes without you breaking a sweat.
Devinci Django 29er
Balanced. It’s the word every tester penciled on his test form. If every bike maker had to do away with all its categories, sub-categories and niches, and had to make one singular 'mountain bike,' there'd be a lot of bikes like this one. We said a similar thing when the original 27.5-inch-wheeled Django came out, and now that the 29er version is here, we really mean it. - Bike Mag
Our take: This bike may be the best mid-travel 29er we've had a chance to swing a leg over. Devinci has maybe made the perfect East Coast Trail 29er. Bike Mag really hit the nail on the head with this bike. Once again, don't take our word for it, demo one today!
Ibis Mojo 3
We got your Mojo workin'
You could call it the baby brother to the Mojo HD3 or the successor to the Mojo SL/SL-R. Either way, it’s a good thing, and maybe it's Ibis' most versatile trailbike ever.
You can run 2.3, 2.5 or 2.8 Plus tires on the Mojo 3, all with the same wheelset and without compromise.
Our take: Look at the smile in the picture! This is one of TBW's best selling mountain bikes...ever. With a 66.8 degree head tube angle and 13.188" BB height, this bike is at home on the east coast trails. We love this bike so much, we have a full size run of demos to put our money where our mouth is. Demo one today.
Early Rider Belter Trail 16" Kids
This is Early Rider's new Trail version of the classic Early Rider Belter 16. Loaded with Ritchey parts and some exclusive 16" Maxxis Maxx Daddy tyres - now your kid can shred the muddy stuff in style. At a little over 12 pounds, the Belter sets the standard. It's worth bearing in mind that every pound on a 3 year olds' bike is the equivalent of 4 or 5 on an adult bike. At 11 pounds lighter than most 16" bikes, that's a big difference to a child.
Our take: You Child is worth it, this bike is awesome! This is a proper kids bike that can be ridden hard maintenance free. Yup, it's on the pricy side but this is a bike that can be passed down from one child to the next and it retains it's sale value if it's sold second hand.
Devinci Hatchet Carbon
The Hatchet Carbon rips!
Taking open road to the performance level, Devinci’s new Hatchet Carbon is the perfect manifestation of mixed-surface compatibility. Starting with the frame, Dual Core Fusion tech fuses two cores for a trifecta of speed, stability and intuitive response
Our take: This is an all-road bike that comes at the category from the other end of the spectrum. It is not a road bike modified for the punishment of dirt roads and single track but the opposite. Devinci approached this category by making a mountain bike ride quickly on the road, very quickly that is. Demo one today.
The Arktos Custom is made by Alchemy in Denver, CO and features a new dual-linkage platform called Sine Suspension that Alchemy licensed exclusively from David Earle. The name Sine derives from the way the shock rate, when graphed, resembles a sine wave. It is intended to help with pedaling efficiency and keep the suspension active under braking by using tube shaping and layups that target stiffness and strength where needed. The Arktos has 6 inches of travel, 27.5-inch wheels and pretty typical trail bike geometry.
Our take: This bike is at home on the trails as it is at Mountain Creek Bike Park. This handmade beauty is available in a frame that is made in the USA with paint that can be customized for you. It's not just pretty though. It is an all mountain enduro bike with an all day riding platform. Colorado born, Tenafly raised. Demo one today!
