Kona knows about the great ride quality, comfort, and lightness that titanium offers. The new 2014 Kona Ti Explosif is a frame-only Titanium version of the classic Explosif, but reintroduced last year as a 27.5-inch wheel aggressive trail bike.
Both the designs and the geometry are the same as the cromoly Explosif: 68 degree head tube angle, short 420mm chainstays and plenty of stand over. If you're looking for a quick, super lightweight, fun as hell Kona hardtail built to rage technical singletrack, this is your bike.

Talk about versatile, the 2013 Black Market Roam is the first frame to give you the option of running 26", 650B & 29" wheels on one frame!
The Roam is Black Market Bikes' first entry into full-suspension bikes, using their proprietary Hammer Link Design (HLD) suspension. The HLD linkage system gives you 6.3” of plush travel combined with unmatched anti-squat characteristics that put every watt of power to the pedals. It's also got a low stand-over chassis to keep your center of gravity low and fast.
Sizes run XS through XL. Pictured here is a size medium (17.25"). MSRP is $1899.99.
Fatbikes have been super popular here lately, and here's another new model to throw into the mix.
The 2013 Surly Krampus is a little different. It’s still got bigger-than-usual tires, which offer increased traction and some degree of float. The Krampus’s frame (geometry, tubing diameter and thickness) has been designed with a long toptube and a short rear end. This, combined with the big wide tires, gives the Krampus the ability to roll fast, hold its speed, and give lots of grip in the corners.
We got a number of frames delivered that went fast, but we still have a medium left. We can order if you need a different size. MSRP is $725.
Expect to see the complete bike version here in the shop when they become available sometime in March/April.

The Carver Ti 420 bike frame represents the culmination of the short-chainstay frame style. Ti softens the blows and drops the weight, while 420mm chainstays ensure snappy handling. Sliding dropouts will allow for any combination of brake mounts, axle types and gearing you can think of.
This frame weighs in at 3lbs 9oz, and is currently in stock in sizes 16" and 18". MSRP is $1200.
