The Denver mountain bike shop selection is vast. It’s one of the most popular sports for locals and vacationers alike. Bike stores are virtually around every corner. So, when you’re shopping, how do you decide where to go? There are a few things you should look out for while you shop. Here are the three most important.

Premium Mountain Bike Selection

When it comes to mountain bikes, Denver knows their stuff. There are options for every age group, skill level, and budget. If you have a brand or specific model in mind, you should call around and ensure the shop you’re going to has it in stock. However, if you’re open to various brands and are weighing your options, it’s best to stop by a shop and go over different models with a representative.

Having a premium mountain bike selection in the store means you can touch, examine, and feel like bike for yourself. If you’re comparing models like Ibis Cycles, Yeti Cycles, and Orbea you’ll want to be sure that the shop you’re going to has all these premium bike brands available inside the mountain bike shop.

Check Assembly Services

If you have the time to spend a few hours reading manuals, have maintenance knowledge, and/or have a bunch of bicycle parts lying around, there is no reason to shy away from building your own mountain bike. However, most people don’t want to assemble their mountain bikes at home and prefer to have a professional’s help.

At Base Camp, we will treat any bike as if it came from our store. This includes Lifetime Free Adjustments with one complimentary Basic Tune.

Check Warrantees and Guarantees

It’s always a good practice to check with your local mountain bike shop about warrantees before purchasing. Purchasing a mountain bike isn’t a small expenditure. Make sure your team is ready to help with any adjustments or tune ups when necessary.
