Absolute Bikes is located on the river in downtown Salida, in the “Old Feed Store” built in 1903 – just look for the grey metal grain tower. We share our building with Seasons Cafe so we’ve got all the essential pre and post ride necessities – coffee, food and beer, parking, and bathrooms. We are open 7 days a week year-round.
Since opening our doors in Salida in 1999, we’ve worked tirelessly to make the shop one of the best in the United States. Absolute Bikes has always strived to be an integral part of the Salida community. When you shop at Absolute Bikes you are supporting local as a portion of all revenue goes right back into our community. We take it seriously.
You’ll find some of the best bikes in the industry in the store: Yeti, Pivot, Ibis, Rocky Mountain, Trek, Kona and Eriksen (custom build), including 26, 27.5 and 29 wheel sizes. Plus, a great selection of commuter, cruiser, and BMX bikes from Electra, Pure Cycles, Haro and Kona. And don’t forget the kids – we have a bike for every stage of your growing rider! Whether you want to ride around town, across the country, from Denver to Durango on the Colorado Trail, or from Banff to Antelope Wells on the Great Divide Route, we have everything you need to keep rolling. We are also well known for one of the most comprehensive demo programs at any bicycle shop in the USA!
We strive to provide the best service you’ve experienced through both our sales and service departments. Our shop includes a dedicated fit room to make sure that your bike fits your body perfectly, whether its a road bike or a mountain bike. Shop owner Shawn Gillis is a certified Master Bike Fitter and we have several other certified bike fitters on staff year-round.
In our service department, we offer fast, friendly, professional service and maintenance. Our head mechanic Scot Banks is a USA Cycling Certified and Licensed mechanic. There are always mechanics on hand and no job is too big or too small – everything from fixing flats for neighborhood kids to complete bike rebuilds.
Stop in and say hi! We’ve got everything you need for your ride and look forward to meeting you.
