Rocksolid guarantee

Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Gravel grinder, single tracker, asphalt crusher, all-rounder: the Cote legend continues. Freshly tweaked for 2020, the Cote has the versatility for you to ride it to work and then take it out for a weekend tour. Its mechanical disc brakes boost performance and provide consistent braking in less-than-ideal riding conditions. Shimano Tiagra components give reliable, smooth-shifting glory. Solid stiff wheels are tubeless ready for cyclocross adventures, and come with commute/tour ready 36c tires. To help smooth out gravel roads or rough bike lanes, grippy bartape with gel padding prevents your hands from getting numb and keeps the ride feeling smooth.
