Hardcore Bikes is now Edmonton's exclusive BH Bikes dealer. Since 1909, BH Bikes has made some of the finest bikes on the planet. Based in Spain, their bikes have won six Vueltas as well as numerous Tour and Giro stages.
In recent years, through their sponsorship of Pro Tour teams such as Liberty Seguros, Astana and AG2R they have developed a line of high performance bicycles that are lighter, stiffer and more ergonomic. BH manufactured the first monocoque carbon frame weighing less than 800 grams, placing their frames among the lightest and most efficient in the world and creating a new category – Ultralight bicycles.
Why BH? In North America, BH and Pivot bikes share distribution so whenever we went to the big bike shows like Interbike or Dealer Camp, BH and Pivot always shared the same booth. We were already a Pivot dealer and would check out the new bikes from them but we invaribly ended up wandering through the BH side in the same way children wander through candy stores. Personally, what grabbed me first was the RX1 cross bike; when I first set eyes on that (in the Hardcore Green colour of course) I just had to have one. Being a self-confessed weight weenie, my second favourite is, naturally, the Ultrallight but the G5 is also on the fantasy quiver list.
Drop by the shop and we can show you what BH has to offer.

Winter in Edmonton is too long to quit riding altogether. It took you all summer to get that fitness going, why lose it all now and have to start over in the Spring. We have the tools to keep you fit this winter so you come Spring you can be as fit or fitter than you are now. There are 3 options to get riding and you can do all, some or just one but they all work.
1) Buy a 9:zero:7 fat bike and hit the trails or put studded tires on the mountain bike and hit the trails or commute to work. The Schwalbe Ice Spiker for offroad or the Marathon Winter for road are great tires with long-lasting tungsten carbide cored spikes will keep you upright in the iciest conditions. We have studded tires from $59.99 to $159.99.
2) Get an Indoor Trainer, queue up all those old "Lost" or "Battlestar Gallactica" episodes, and get spinning. Cyclops invented the Fluid Trainer but also make magnetic and wind-resistance trainers. All of their trainers are excellent quality; the fluid being quieter and more natural whereas the magnetic and wind ones are less expensive. Cytclops trainers are $249 to $449.
3) Fly somewhere where it is still warm for the winter. This last one is a bit tough for us who aren't independently wealthy but even if you can take a week or two in the winter to do some riding, it has a huge impact on your fitness...and your enjoyment of riding.
The most talked about new mountain bike model of year is here, the Yeti SB-66. The SB-66 uses a complletely new platform, Yeti's "Switch" linkage system that works on an eccentric pivot. This eccentric rottates one direction for the first 100mm of travel and then switches direction for the last part of the travel. This allows the bike to have a much larger "sweet spot" in the crucial mid-stroke, pedal extremely efficiently, and minimize chain growth which isolates pedaling from suspension travel.
The SB-66 is a 6" travel trail bike that lets you climb as well as you descend. It is available in 4 build kits from $3900 to $6900. The carbon version will be out in April and will be 47.5% cooler.
