The bikes we offer are carefully hand selected for their styling, technology, color scheme and most importantly their original condition. When we “renew” a bike, we go over all the components, changing and servicing whatever is necessary while striving to stay with period correct parts. if a Klein bicycle needs paint restoration, we are proud to use the services of Klein master painter Dave Wilkins of Chehalis Wa. Dave uses original pigments from the Klein factory supplier freshly mixed into the original grade modern paint. Then he adds New BB Bearings, and New Proper plastic cable tubes. The results are a mountain bike museum grade restoration.

We value your interest and your business, and we strive to bring you the very best, the coolest, vintage mountain bicycles. Wishing you many great rides.

Top of the Rim

Mountain bikers ride on off-road trails such as singletrack, back-country roads, wider bike park trails, fire roads, and some advanced trails are designed with jumps, berms, and drop-off to add excitement to the trail.

Riders with enduro and downhill bikes will often visit ski resorts that stay open in the summer to ride downhill specific trails, using the ski lifts to return to the top with their bikes.
Because riders are often far from civilization, there is a strong ethic of self-reliance in the sport. Riders learn to repair broken bikes and flat tires to avoid being stranded. Many riders carry a backpack, including water, food, tools for trailside repairs, and a first aid kit in case of injury.


Mountain biking is a fun and exciting way to enjoy the many health benefits of regular fitness and cardiovascular exercise including:
  • Improved Heart Health.
