Bike Month in Colorado!

May 28th, 2013 - News

June marks the beginning of large organized rides in Colorado.     Signing up for an event gives you a reason to schedule riding time–you can call it ‘training.’   That may sound a little better than just going out and aimlessly riding around for the fun of it.   Either way,  somebody at Criterium understands your need to make time for riding.

The Pikes Peak Region is still gaining new trails, so stop in to research a new route or a whole new style of riding.  We are standing by with rentals (to try a road bike or a 29er), on-the-spot repairs, snacks, equipment, and cures for that last-minute fashion emergency.

Beyond cotton

May 23rd, 2013 - News

Many of our customers have discovered that bicycle shorts make riding more comfortable, but they still wear their comfy old cotton T-shirt.    Cotton may work fine in the gym, but for biking, it is the wrong fabric.  It collects sweat on the uphill ride, and then holds it for a chill on the descent, or in the wind.  It feels both hotter and colder than microfiber.  Criterium carries ‘technical T’s’ made of wicking microfibers in addition to the traditional cycling jerseys for men, women, and kids.   Think of them as high-speed T’s.

29er’s for the people!

May 5th, 2013 - News | Product news

Just three years ago, mountain bikes with the 29″ wheels were a novelty provided by small manufacturers.  Specialized was the first of the big lines to embrace the 29ers, with a complete line-up in HardRocks, Rockhoppers, Mykas, Jets,  Stumpjumpers,  Stumpjumper FSR’s, Cambers, and Epics.

For 2014, they are adding the Enduro 29 and the women’s Rumor 29 to the product mix.  These early intro bikes are in short supply, so call if you want a test ride before they are sold:  719-499-0149.  We will notify you when your size becomes available.

Still skeptical of the whole 29″ wheel thing?  Try one from our rental fleet.  If you come back to buy, we will refund the rental fee.

Want more choices?   Let us show you an impressive line-up from Cannondale.
