Product Inspiration?

We often wonder where bike company’s get their ideas….Some would say the SMP seat may have been thought up on a Saturday morning while watching Sesame Street. All I know is that I can hardly contain my excitement for what may lie ahead!


Pain + Suffer’n Trail

SDan & Robert P+S Trail Work

New Section of Pain + Suffer'n Trail

Trail work continues on a new section of the xc mountain bike course. About 300′ of the trail has been roughed in. The hope is to get this finished before the spring rain stops, as this helps to firm up the trails for racing.

The new and improved Pain + Suffer’n website just went live. Check it out! We’re really excited about the September 10th-12th weekend of cross country MTB, short track, and cyclocross racing brought to you by Sunset Cycles and lots of great sponsors. Feel free to spread the word about the event by sending the link to family, friends and race acquaintances.

Keep checking back here for the latest news and updates about the race and the courses. See you at the races!

Shimano Wheels in Stock!

Over the winter we’ve expanded our offering of Shimano products.

Of course there are the obligatory chains, cassettes, and chainrings which everyone carries.  We also favor the Shimano stainless steel cable sets for their durability and smooth action and use them exclusively (except on Campagnolo, of course…).

We have taken things several steps further – Read More…

Burley Travoy !

The much, anticipated arrival of Burley’s Travoy Urban Trailer System has just happened. Starting today, this crafty trailer is available for purchase from the store. The compactable unit shrinks down to a mere 20” x  20” x 6” for easy storage. Stop in today for a 30 second demo to see first hand all of the great features that this little guy has to offer.
