Two Wheel Drive

Bringing people and bicycles together in more ways than one.

Two wheel drive is an Albuquerque institution. Founded over 30 years ago to bring a friendly shopping alternative to the typical "pro-shop" eliteness of the bicycle shop of the day. TWD continues to bring a unique personal service perspective to a industry that's moved more and more toward a corporate scheme. At TWD you will find an unparelled perspective that encourages a lifetime of cycling. Wether you are riding to class, work or to increase the benefits of fitness at any age, you will find TWD offers unique enabling gear. For example, we offer a complete selection of performance three wheelers for folks who feel the need to keep riding, but have physical issues that have stopped them from riding the typical bent over, balance requiring two wheeler. You will find folding bikes, tandems, three speeds and stable touring bikes for the special requirements of your commute or bikepack adventure. Of course, you'll find a great understanding and selection of MountainBikes, our first love. However you ride- TWD will help you find a better way. If you're riding for life, you'll love Two Wheel Drive!

Christmas came a little bit early at the shop this year! Stoked to offer these @konabikes Process 134 as demo bikes to our customers for this upcoming year. Equipped with a RockShox Recon RL fork at 140mm and a RockShox Deluxe select rear shock at 134mm, these shred sleds are ready to rip anything you can! Tubeless ready, on a @srammtb SX Eagle drivetrain and @shimanomtb hydraulic disc brakes! We can tell you all about how awesome this bike rides, but it's one you gotta experience for yourself!

REAL cool Steamroller build from our buddy Garth! We built him up some super sweet H Plus Son TB14 rims to White Industries track hubs; blinged out!! Everything on this bike is dialed from the Chris King Headset, super cool Real Levers, vintage Coors water bottle to the braided silver housing. This bike is amazing! Glad to see our customers bikes and passion behind them!

Sometimes, a little bit of bartape goes a long way! We rewrapped Bryan's old skool LeMond with some sweet new Yo! Wraps from @ridepdw! Vintage feel, with a cloth wrap and added cushion underneath! Looking delicious!!

Bringing the heat this winter with a 2020 @salsacycles Cutthroat GRX 815 Di2! So stoked to see one of these roll thru the shop, and our friend Jim is too! Hats off to @salsacycles on a truly incredible bike!

We had the pleasure of building up a new 2020 @salsacycles Cutthroat today! This one is the GRX 600, 2x11spd, in a size 60cm. This bike is truly amazing, and Salsa did a great job of spec'in it with the new Shimano GRX 600 group! Flawless shifting, ergonomic hoods and levers, amazing braking power and a huuuuge range of gears makes this bike an all around solid rig! Get 'em while they're hot! Let us know if you're interested, and drop us a line or stop by the shop!

We love building custom wheels! Building these up for our buddy Bill's new @seven_cycles dream build! We got him @onyxracing hubs laced up to some @noxcomposites Teocalli 29 w/ Sapim CX Ray spokes! These things are killer and bomb proof! The logo/color combo was an accidental misorder that we think came out awesome. Still gunna get ya that original color though, Bill! Cannot wait to see these on the bike!

Kenny needed some extra extra storage, so we got him set up with set up with a set of @swiftindustries Jr. Ranger Panniers and a @surlybikes Petite Porteur house bag! Thanks Kenny! Come check out the rest of our bike packing and touring bags!

With the recent redesign of the @salsacycles Cutthroat, now is a great time to pick up the "Original" Tour Divide race bike! We have two 2019 Salsa Cutthroats, with @sramroad Apex 1x drivetrains. Ready to roll on Maxxis tubeless ready Ikons in 29x2.6 up front and 29x2.20 out back! Both of these bikes are also equipped with a Salsa EXP Series Half Pack, to make sure you're ready to roll out of the shop and into the wild! $2299 each, with our classic service deal and guaranteed fit. Come by and check em out!

No ride today ☹️. Save the trails and the bikes for next weekend. Thanks!

Join us tomorrow morning for a ride through the Bosque led by our friends @420doombikes ! 10am meet up and 1030am roll out. Medium pace on singletrack and dirt trails. Bring a snack and some extra water and be ready for around 17-20 miles. See ya there!

Be sure and warm up at the shop during the Parade! We'll have the heater on, and Zach's
Gold Sprints will heat things up!!

Yo! Check out these sweet @ridepdw woven handlebar tape! They also happen to be some of our favorite things that keep the shop running! Swing by and check em out, and the other sweet stuff to keep your bike running!

Looking to get yourself or a loved one riding a full suspension next season? We're selling what's left of our @konabikes demo fleet! The 2019 Kona Hei Hei in sizes XL, and M! Super low miles, and well maintained, with tubeless tires on both bikes! Both come with our shop maintenance plan, and fit guarantee, as well as Konas factory warranty! Priced to move at $2000(originally $2599), and just in time for Christmas! Come by and check em out, and the other bikes we offer from @konabikes !

Thanks to all of our customers and friends for a awesome 37th season!
Hope you have a wonderful Holiday!
