HOURS UPDATE: We are open daily ONLY for service 12-4pm, except closed Tues/Thurs. The goal is to keep you riding, not to give your bike a complete overhaul.
Absolute Bikes is an award-winning full-service bike shop located in the heart of historic downtown Salida, Colorado. We are in the historic “Old Feed Store” – just look for the tall metal grain tower along the Arkansas River. We have everything you need, from local trail suggestions and maps, new bikes & specific demo program bikes, used demo & rentals from last season, current rental bikes, guided rides, service, to a full selection of parts and accessories.
Open 7 days a week year-round with mechanics always on duty. Little Cambodia is located next door for your post-ride recovery meal, and we’re on the river for a refreshing swim after your ride.
Some of the best mountain biking in the state is right out the door on the Monarch Crest Trail, the Colorado Trail, the Rainbow Trail, not to mention the extensive Arkansas Hills (S-mtn) & Methodist trail systems that are rideable nearly all year and out our back door. Check out some of our favorite local rides.
