Fatbikes are Here

We just received a shipment of Trek Farleys. Come check them out--they look even better in real life than in pictures. Our shipment of RSD fatbikes is due in October and they are already 50% sold so if you're thinking of a Fatbike this year don't wait. By the time the snow gets here they will likely be gone. It used to be Edmonton had 2 seasons: good riding and really difficult riding. With fatbikes, winter riding is easy, fun and way, way less crashing.

Four H-BOM Wheelsets endure 24 hours of Solo racing in Canmore!

 All of our solo 24hr racers this past weekend were on our own H-BOM carbon wheelsets.  We are proud to say that we didn't even have to turn a spoke

nipple!  The 24hr course has many rough high speed sections and we even had Garry bottom out his tire on a rock, causing a hole in the tire but no damage

to the rim.  Very reliable and starting at 1499, get yours custom built today.

Carbon Wheelsets are taking shape!

Trail 29 wheel on Hope Hubs

 We have sold a few of our yet to be branded custom carbon wheelsets so the builds have started.  The carbon rims have blown us away with their quality and finish, and indeed Owain and Barry have noted how true they build up without fuss.  Most current wheels on the market today are between 17 - 22mm wide internally but our Trail Rims are 30mm wide while our XC Race Rims are 22mm.  Even our Road/Cross tubulars are 23mm wide (externally).  This will greatly improve traction and stability in corners as your tires will be well supported when leaned rather than squ

New! Foundry Cross Bikes

New to Hardcore are Foundry Bikes. Foundry comes from the same guys who brought you Surly and Salsa and is a full line of Carbon Cyclocross, Road and Mountain bikes. Their moto is "It's a Tool Not a Trophy" and their bikes reflect this yeoman aesthetic. If you want flashy Euro-graphics then these aren't for you. Foundry is all about making great bang for the buck bikes that get the job done in a non-flashy way and yet offer future proof designs and amazing performance. These are bikes for the guys who sponsor themselves, race on Sundays and ride to work on Mondays.
