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.

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.
