Highlights of the new Defy:
The 2015 Kona Process 111 29er is back, and with a great new look. We're loving the deep purple.
Last year Kona redefined what a 29er can do with the introduction of the Process 111. The geometry combines short chainstays (430mm) with a low BB. Add to that 111mm of rear suspension, lots of standover, a short stem with a roomy rider cockpit, and you've got a 29er that's made for major fun on the trails.
MSRP is $4099.
It's a new brand for the shop! Ride 100% has been around since the early 1980's with factory racing equipment for some of the biggest names in motocross. We really like the style and the design of their protective motocross goggles.
And now you can pick up a set for the little ripper too! 100 Percent Youth Strata Jr. MX goggle, in 3D red or crafty lime. MSRP is $25.
We got our first big shipment of 2015 Giant Bicycles in at the end of last week - 59 bikes in total We will post more pics as they get built up.
Here are a few 27.5" wheel models for starters.
The 2015 Giant Trance 27.5 2 (MSRP $2550) and 2015 Giant Trance 27.5 3 (MSRP $2125) were made to inspire confidence over technical terrain. 140mm of suspension in the front and rear plus several frame technologies including the OverDrive steerer tube and PowerCore bottom bracket. Climbing or descending, pinning it at high speed or crawling through the tech stuff, this bike does it all.
The 2015 Giant Anthem SX 27.5 (pictured, lower left) is a lightweight ALUXX SL full-suspension alloy frame with 120mm of travel up front and 100mm of Maestro Suspension in the rear. It’s a great choice for technical XC race courses or epic singletrack riding. MSRP is $3000.
The new 2015 Giant Stance 27.5 2 (pictured, lower right) makes its debut this year. 120mm of FlexPoint suspension travel, stable geometry, and low cost make this a great full-suspension option for those new to trail riding. MSRP is $1450.
The 2015 Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon with RXC build (in either burgundy/white or satin black/aqua blue). Build kit includes a curated mix of Shimano XT, Deore, and SRAM components. MSRP is $3399.
Santa Cruz has been working with an exclusive manufacturing partner in an effort to get cost down on carbon frames without sacrificing quality or durability. For 2015, they have a new lower cost carbon frame option that retains the same strength with a different grade of carbon material that results in a minimal weight gain of approximately 250-280 grams (0.6 lbs) and a lower price point.
Santa Cruz calls this new lower cost carbon option their "Carbon" frame. They are still offering their original, high quality carbon frames as well, now under the name "Carbon C".
The Path Bike Shop will always offer both "Carbon" and "Carbon C" frame options in both shops.
The 2015 Lust 3 (pictured, right) is a great all-around cross country bike. 4" of rear suspension, a 15mm front thru-axle for front end stiffness and control, 27.5" wheels, and plenty of standover height for added confidence on technical trails. MSRP is $2125.
The 2015 Tempt is a perfect entry-level hardtail to get you started in the sport of mountain biking. It's got an aluminum frame with geometry that's designed specifically for women, 27.5: wheels, suspension fork, and lots of standover height.
2015 Tempt 3 (not shown) in size small - MSRP is $680
2015 Tempt 4 (pictured below) in sizes X-small, small, and medium - MSRP is $575
The 2015 Giant XTC Advanced 29er hardtail has a stiff and light advanced composite frame and stable 29er handling, great bike for XC racing or fast XC riding. Both models have the same great frame and geometry, only the part specs are different.

The ENVE M50 Fifty 29er carbon wheels were made specifically for high caliber cross country racing.
This wheelset replaces a previous model from ENVE; they're now lighter, wider, and smoother riding. The M50 Fifty has been tuned for greater vertical compliance, which reduces rider fatigue after long hours in the saddle, without sacrificing the fantastic lateral rigidity that ENVE is well known for.
MSRP is $2718.
Today's new arrival: a 2014 Knolly Warden! This is Knolly's enduro bike with 6" of travel and 27.5" wheels. Lots of standover and a short, tapered headtube with zero-stack headset to keep things low with an aggressive riding feel familiar to a 26" wheel bike.
Tricked out with a fantastic build kit:
This size medium pictured is the only one in stock at the moment. MSRP is $6841.
The new Easton Haven 35 Carbon low rise handlebars are perfect for aggressive trail riders and enduro racers, thanks to the combination of carbon material, a 35-millimeter clamp diameter, and a more accessible 750-millimeter width. Because of the bulked up center section, the weight of the handlebar is lighter while making the bar wider and stronger. The ride quality is sweetened by the premium blend of ultra tough composite material that’s ride tuned for a balance of both stiffness and damping. Nine-degree sweep and five-degree upsweep put your hands in the perfect position for trail riding or racing.
Great colors over matte carbon finish to look good with your ride: green, red, blue, and black logo (black logo not shown in photo). MSRP is $149.
The improved Easton Haven 35 stem is lighter, stronger and stiffer than ever before. They come in a fantastic range of sizes, including a super-short 40mm option that's tough to find. We've got them in both 40mm and 50mm lengths. MSRP is $80.
The e*thirteen Extended Range (EX) Cog can be subbed in to ten-speed cassettes to increase gearing range. EXA+ anodized aluminum keeps it light and strong, and shifting stays smooth.
The EX Cog is available in three colors (black, red, or blue), with both 40 and 42 tooth sizes for Shimano ten-speed cassettes and a single 42-tooth size for SRAM. MSRP is $69.95.
