Your Gravel Headquarters

Let The Grinding Begin

There’s no mistaking the fact that gravel biking is the fastest growing category in the cycling world right now. With so many bikes, events, and miles of gravel to ride this season, let Now Bikes be your gravel headquarters for all things gravel. From training rides, to bikes, to gear and service, we have you covered so that you can spend less time worrying and planning, and more time grinding.

The Gravel Collective

Now Bikes is proud to be a sponsor of three epic gravel rides this year: Miesville FiftySix, Lyme Grinder, and The Hero Gravel Classic. Together, they make up The Gravel Collective. Each event promises a great time, community building, a charitable cause, and of course, miles and miles of the best gravel Minnesota has to offer. Now Bikes will be providing wrench duties at the starting lines, support at the halfway points, and endless amounts of real, quality bike parts and swag for raffles!

Training Rides

“One does not simply ride fifty miles of gravel” said some gravel cyclist, probably. Riding at one of our events is no easy task, that’s why starting the second week of February, Now Bikes will be hosting weekly training rides to prepare your body for the Gravel Collective. These rides will vary in distance, intensity, and terrain depending on the time of year and weather conditions. Check our Facebook events to find more information on the next training ride here.

Bikes, Gear, and Service

Don’t have the right gear to tackle the Gravel Collective? We’ve got you covered. Now Bikes carries the widest variety of gravel bikes. From entry level alloy options like the Salsa Journeyman and Cannondale Topstone, to the cream of the crop like the Cervelo Aspero and Open U.P., and everything in between. We have the bike for you.

But being comfortable over fifty miles of gravel takes more than a good bike. Our premium Guru Fit services will make sure that you’re comfortable for endless miles on the saddle. We have decades of experience in bike fitting that we apply to every one of our bike fit clients. Call to schedule a bike fitting at either of our locations.

Last, but definitely not least, your bike needs to work. We know you’re all tough and ready to grind out all these miles, but nothing takes the wind out of your sails like a broken chain or a flat tire. Our expert mechanics pride themselves on their pre-race tune-ups. Knowing that you’re rolling off at the start line with nothing to worry about is what they do best. Get your bike in early this season, and schedule pre-race check ups at both of our shop locations. Appointments can be scheduled to guarantee 48 hour turnaround on all service work.
