I just wanted to show off how gorgeous my 50 year old Peugeot looks with those stunning yellow tires from your shop. I was skeptical, but since they were the only tires in all
ABQ in the right size I got them. I couldn't be happier or more proud.

Hey there guys! Glad to see you open back up! I have a quick question. I purchased my bike from you last March and was told at the time the purchase included a 30 day and 1 year tune. I’d like to take advantage of that so what do I need to do in order to set that up?
Are they still sponsoring an occasional bike ride?
Im looking for a couple of cruisers. One mens and one womens. Will you be open tomorrow?
Hey supposedly NM governor overturned the ruling that bicycle shops are not essential and are to be closed. And around town a bunch of bicycle shops are open. Is Two Wheel Drive going to be opening soon, need help with project bike

Explored the Trails in the Zunis lately?
Great time of year to explore the awesome singletracks near McGaffey lake- There's a great network of mellow singletracks with an adventurous twist in a truly enchanted forest.

Almost Like Clockwork!
Wes visits nearly every Wednesday while out for his ride- it's not his only ride in the week, in fact, Wes rides nearly 800 miles some months! He's a dedicated rider that discovered Trike's after a health issue stopped his miles on an upright two wheeler.
Know anyone in a similar situation?
We can help!
We're dealers for multiple Trike brands: Catrike, ICE, Terra Trike, Greenspeed, & HP

Over our summer break our mechanic @yungbrothernature attempted to ride from Salida, Colorado to the Jemez Mountains, here in New Mexico via the GDMBR (Great Divide Mountain Bike Route). Along with epic views, amazing roads, & great camping, came triple digit heats, rain & lightning storm nights, and a clogged water filter. Results: Salida to Horca, with a slight detour in between! Stop by the shop and ask him about it!

Hey! So if you haven't heard we're going to get back into the swing of this shop ride thingy! Join us tomorrow at 3pm for a ride from the shop out to Cedro Peak, where we'll partake in the #swiftcampout2021. There's plenty of room for dispersed camping at Cedro, and if it's full we can mosey on down the road and find more delightful camping as well. If camping isn't your thing, or you're curious about bikepacking but not ready to try it out just yet, don't shy away! There's always the option to ride out with us to the camp spot, have a cold one and relish in our ride, & head back to town. If you're choosing to out and back, well form a group and time frame for rolling back into town.
Meet up 3pm
Roll out 330pm
Bring lots of water! It's going to be really hot! There will be a couple of stops with options to buy beer and food and the first and food and water at the second. We have a truck taking extra water, but don't depend on it! If you have any questions, slide in the DMs, or hit up @yungbrothernature! He will be out spirit guide on this journey.

This Saturday we will be closing up the shop early, and heading out to Cedro Peak for a little Summer Solstice overnighter and most importantly the #swiftcampout2021!! This is one of the first shop rides we have done in quite some time, so we aren't expecting a bunch of people. But if you're keen on a moderate ride to a super sweet camp spot, you're welcome to join us and sleep under the stars! We will be closing and meeting at the shop at 3pm, rolling about 330pm. Rolling thru the heat means packing a lot of water will be essential. We will have a couple cars goin up that can carry light amounts of stuff. If you feel like driving, message us on IG and we'll fill you in on the details of the dispersed camping spot we are riding to. Well post a couple more times throughout the week to remind you and post any updates as well! Hope to see you there!

Swift Campout 2021 – Solstice Bike-Overnight Swift Tip: a tarp isn’t for every trip, but if you’re heading into a zone with lotsa trees and relatively flat terrain then this simple shelter is a kick-ass way to pair down weight and bulk on your self-propelled travels.

National Trails Day this Saturday! June 4th

Help build some sweet multi-use singletrack trail in the Sandias!
National Trails Day this Saturday! June 4th

Friends of Sandia Mountains (FOSM) has invited Mountainbikers/AMBA (Abq. Mountain Bike Assoc.) to help start the new Challenge Route Trail extension from Dry Camp to Tree Spring Trail.

Meet at Dry Camp(Tecolote Trailhead) parking area at 9 am.
Work until about 2 pm, so bring appropriate food and drink.

Long pants and sleeves, eye protection(sunglasses), sturdy shoes or boots, and work gloves are required-
If you have trail tools, bring 'em too.

This is a first step in adding to the incredible Multi-Use trail improvements planned for the East side of the Sandias, thanks to the same FS fella that made so many great things happen in the Manzanita's, the honorable Kerry Wood.

Welcome In-
It's our first day bringing folks back in the store! We rode the "better safe than sorry" route through the last Covid surge, but now that we're all vaccinated and the swamp cooler is pumping in fresh air, we're going back to our two at a time protocol.
Heck, we actually feel it allows us to give the best customer service- lets call it a "concierge" approach.
One on one is so important these days, because it's taking extra knowledge to help folks navigate through the Bike Industry shortages we're experiencing. It's a whole new ballgame- get ready for long wait times for some parts and bikes. Get ready for substitutions and make-do's.
We're doing our best to help folks ride.
By the way- So proud of our team for making this last year of essential service without Covid- Better Safe Than Sorry!
Thanks for riding with us as we roll better safe than sorry.
