We stock Norco and Specialized, two of the best brands in the industry.  We strive to keep a variety of models in our shop.  If we don’t have the bike you need in stock, we have access to every model and can order a bike to your personal needs.  Being satisfied with your new bike purchase is our top priority.  That is why every bike purchased from CHAIN REACTION RIDE and SLIDE comes complete with a service agreement and warranty.

 Styles. Categories.

ROAD bikes are intended to be used on paved highways and pathways.  Road bikes generally are designed as lightweight and aerodynamic for maximum speed.

CITY bikes are generally used on paved streets and pathways, but can also be ridden on smooth gravel paths and trails.  These bikes come in many different categories and include features designed for carrying things and for use in all sorts of weather conditions.

COMFORT bikes are designed for a comfortable ride in an upright riding position with minimal rider weight on the handlebars and may or may not include suspension systems.

MOUNTAIN bikes are designed for use on gravel trails and so are designed with suspension forks and sometimes a rear shock.  Styles include Cross country, All Mountain, Freeride and Downhill.

FAT BIKES are intended for use in snowy conditions designed with 4-5″ tires and disc brakes and usually lack suspension systems.

DIRT/STREET bikes are designed for jumping.  These bikes usually have a rigid tail end with front suspension fork.

BMX categories are either race or street.  Racing is a popular sport where groups of cyclists race around a track with jumps and bumps.  Street BMX bikes are great for skate parks and other urban riding styles.

YOUTH bikes are for the youngsters in your family and are available either single or multi-speed.    Youth bike sizing is based on wheel size.  Run bike models with no pedals are designed for the toddlers who are eager to get a head start on developing their balance.

WOMAN’S SPECIFIC MODELS are available in most categories offered by Norco and Specialized. Design-for-women bikes includes adjustments at the grips, saddles and forks as well as differences in frame geometry and frame finish.
