Women's Trekking Bike

Nashbar Women's Trekking Bike. A women's bike needs to be more than just shrink it and pink it, and trekking feels better when you're on a lightweight aluminum frame with women's specific geometry, an excellent suspension fork, Shimano drivetrain components, and 24 speeds of climbing, top-end, and long distance options. The Nashbar Trekking Bike brings together all the best of the cycling world. You get nice, big 700c wheels for efficiency, control, and obstacle clearing, but you also get slick tires that are skinnier than mountain bike tires so you can still assault roads and streets without losing all your energy in the tires. Plus the Suntour suspension fork means you're ready for a little off-road, curb hopping, and gravel/dirt path riding when it suits you. The Shimano Altus/Acera drivetrain gives you quick, efficient, and low-maintenance shifting...so you're never left skipping gears on a steep climb; and alloy riser bars and stem keep you more upright in the saddle so it's always comfortable on your joints and back.

Chameleon D Complete Mountain Bike - 2016 Matte Black/Silver, M

While we're certainly fans of many of Santa Cruz's full-suspension, single-discipline bikes like the all-mountain Heckler and the XC Superlight, investing too much in a bike limited to one specific role can be a bit, well, limiting -- especially when there are options like the hardtail Chameleon D Complete Mountain Bike. The Chameleon obviously doesn't hit gnarly descents like an eight-inch DH monster, but with its huge range of fork compatibility and interchangeable rear dropouts, its colors bleed between sharp-angled XC climber, slacked out trail killer, and singlespeed session machine to provide a bit of variance across multiple disciplines and styles of riding. The Chameleon's most radical element of mutability is definitely the pair of rear dropouts, which can be swapped for a singlespeed setup, making for one hell of a gritty lizard that's guaranteed to net gnar points on any 100-mile endurance race or while sessioning park terrain. In the advent of an XC race or just a day on singletrack, the dropouts are shipped in ten-speed mode, keeping the Shimano double drivetrain in full working order. The Chameleon's front end is also flexible, including the ability to fade from shades of short-travel XC to the distinctive hue of a six-inch enduro fork. The D build comes spec'd with a 130mm RockShox Sektor Gold RL Solo Air, which splits the difference between the frame's min/max spread of 100mm to 150mm for a neutral tone on the off-road travel color chart. As alluded to above, changing forks also alters the bike's geometry. With a 100mm fork, the seat angle gets steeper and the bottom bracket height drops for a forward-leaning, aggressive XC geometry that puts power above all else while virtually banishing wheel flop. As travel approaches 150mm, the bike gets taller and the head tube slacks out for stability at speed that holds lines like, well, like a chameleon clinging to a stick with its little tail coiled up. Only not as cute. Without a solid platform, all t...

Evolve Carbon Mountain Bike Frame - 2015 Matte Carbon, M

Mountain bikers are often caricatured as beer-swilling, lowbrow versions of their skinny tire counterparts, uninterested in anything but the thrill of mud-covered, terrain-smashing lunacy. We contend that this is unfair, as many of us appreciate the multifaceted refinement of a bike like Ellsworth's Evolve Carbon Mountain Bike Frameset. The Evolve is not only handles terrain with confidence, but it also climbs well and has the cross-country speed pedigree of 29-inch wheels. It doesn't skimp on good looks, either, with Ellsworth claiming that it's a piece of "performance art." We agree, and we've found that the best way to appreciate this particular piece is covered in mud while enjoying a cold beer after a maniacal run through a rock garden. The Evolve Carbon is built with Ellsworth's Force Vector Anisotropic Design, which translates into unidirectional Toray carbon fiber laid-up in varying shapes and wall thicknesses in order to strike a balance between weight and energy transfer while keeping the suspension system's pivot points aligned. In the rear triangle, the addition of CNC machined aluminum rockers and chainstays makes for an even stiffer drivetrain, and the single 12 millimeter bolt needed for each pivot assemble makes for a lighter, less complicated system. Fewer parts mean fewer issues, and you can ride confidently knowing that the part that is there happens to be the size of your rear axle. The semi-integrated tapered head tube takes advantage of the steep head tube angle for a stiff front end that elevates 29er steering to levels you'd expect from smaller wheels. Ellsworth claims that the Evolve Carbon's Instant Center Tracking (ICT) suspension is the most advanced suspension platform in the world. As it moves through travel, ICT keeps the instant center (or virtual pivot created by ICT's four bar suspension) as close to the chain force line as possible. In on-trail terms, this maintains a steady pedaling platform so your power is always transfer...

Highball Carbon CC XT Complete Mountain Bike 29in - 2015 Gloss Aqua, M

At this point, the impact of 29ers on the cycling industry is pretty damn hard to overstate, and while the latest attempt to split the difference between wagon wheels and 26in bikes has been gaining ground, there's still no substitute for the 29er die-hard in need of a fix. Santa Cruz's Highball Carbon CC XT Complete Mountain Bike is the cure for what ails you: a hardtail for efficient sprinting and climbing, Santa Cruz's untouchable Carbon CC construction, and a double crankset for top speed whether the trails going up or the finish line is coming up. Though this is a 2015 model, the only difference between it and the 2016 Highball Carbon CC frame is the paint. The carbon layup is the same single piece instead of a jigsaw puzzle of individually-cured carbon tubes, so the fibers are wrapped through and around structurally important junctures like the head tube and bottom bracket. This strengthens the frame, dissipates the force from impacts and pedaling load, and allows for the same strength and stiffness as the more pedestrian Carbon C frame while using less material to shave a couple hundred unwanted grams. The Carbon CC construction means this bike hits the bricks when you stomp on the pedals, dampens high-speed chatter, and holds lines like a cat on carpet -- all with a low-weight that makes virtually any other 29er -- full suspension or hardtail -- feel like an unresponsive iron anchor. The Highball somewhat addresses the lack of rear suspension with a diminished seatpost, slimmed down to 27. 2 millimeters. While this doesn't quite equate to the square-edge hit capabilities of the Nomad or Bronson, it does help to eat up chatter that will otherwise accumulate over the course of a long ride. Up front, the 29-inch model has a sharper head tube angle than the Highball 27. 5 so it dances nimbly through switchbacks and technical sections. Although it has longer chainstays than the 27. 5 version, The Highball 29er actually has a shorter wheelbase, courtesy of that ..

Nomad Carbon CC 27.5 XX1 Complete Mountain Bike - 2015 Turquoise/Pink, L

There are few, if any, machines that come as close to achieving all-mountain perfection as Santa Cruz's Nomad Carbon CC 27. 5 XX1 Complete Mountain Bike. Though this particular model is a 2015, the changes between it and the 2016 version are mostly cosmetic and, since many of us at Competitive actually prefer the slightly simpler paint jobs of the 2015 models, the price drop compared to 2016 means we can have our full carbon, Virtual Pivot Point (VPP), 6. 5in enduro cake and eat it, too. Beneath the updated frosting, the current top-end Nomad frame is built with the same Carbon CC construction methods used here. For the CC build, the engineers use a higher modulus fiber than in the Carbon C model, so less material is required to hit the same strength and stiffness numbers. Less material equates to less weight, and, well, you can see where we're going with this. Climbing and pure speed both benefit when there's less mass for your engine to propel. As with the current models, last year's Nomad's two carbon triangles are built as whole pieces rather than glued together from disparate bits. This saves weight and increases structural integrity by allowing Santa Cruz to wrap carbon continuously through and around key junctures, reinforcing the frame with less material while eliminating the artificial stress points that result from bonded construction methods. The frame is finished with compaction from inside and out for a more even finish that avoids any structural defects, excess material build-up, and resin pooling for -- you guessed it -- even more weight savings. The 2015 Nomad's VPP suspension platform is also the same as the 2016. The list of improvements that Santa Cruz teased out of the venerable suspension design for 2015 includes improved mid-stroke support and off-the-top small bump compliance. VPP still maintains the snappy pedaling that's essential for piloting a long-travel bike to the top of your favorite runs, though, and it still features the core ele...

Mach 4 Carbon Mountain Bike Frame - 2015 Matte Blue, M

The Pivot Mach 4 is not only designed for smaller riders, but it is also ideal for riders who need more space to move while they ride. The 5. 1lb frame is Pivot's lightest, yet it doesn't compromise stiffness. It sticks a track just as well as Pivot's XC bikes with the plush ride of a full suspension. The rear suspension is provided by the DW-link design with 115mm of travel. The link system is designed to provide enough travel for the gnarliest of trails while ensuring that all of your pedal power propels you forward. It is paired with the FOX FLOAT CTD Kashima shock, which is tuned to use every bit of movement available, so even with the 115mm of travel, your ride will feel bigger. To complete the frame, internal cable routing is part of the design. The geometry has been tweaked to work with either a 100mm or 120mm fork. And while the shorter travel means more speed, the 120mm will give you a ride with a bit more slack.
