Taggart Cycles is a brand of steel rando bikes handmade in Portland by one of our own (former) mechanics named Alex, who is also the founder of the Lost Horizons weekly ride group. We're big fans of what he's doing, so when he asked if we wanted to display one of his creations, we said OF COURSE! This randonneur frame can handle almost any challenge that might arise, all while keeping you comfortable and happy. At first glance, what stands out about this frame is the craftsmanship. While most frames today are TIG welded, this frame is lugged and fillet brazed. It has no bearing on the ride quality, but it sure looks classic. Despite its appearance, this bike is anything but stuck in the past. It has all the features you need for adventures on and off road. More pics and complete specs coming soon. - TRP Spyre calipers with 180mm rotor in front (ideal for steep offroad descents) - Sugino OX601 super compact crankset - Dynamo lighting with internal wiring. Shutter Precision PD-8 hub, B&M IQ-X, and Schmidt fender mounted tail light - Low trail geometry optimized for front load - Front rack and decaleur with integrated bag retention bungee. Ostrich F-104 handlebar bag - Honjo aluminum fenders. Mounts on the frame are designed to allow for the use of wide fenders without the need for any dimpling. This means they’ll last a long time, and be easy to replace when the time comes - 26” x 2.3” tires are wide but with a diameter similar to that of a standard road wheel. That means you get cushion from the tire while retaining the handling characteristics of a road bike. Chainstays are bent rather than dimpled for superior strength - “Standard” diameter frame tubing. An odd designation since manufacturers generally use “oversized” tubing these days. Standard diameter tubes flex more, yielding a more comfortable ride - The best downtube shifters ever: Simplex retro-friction. Wide-range 8-speed cassette - Seatstay pump peg with Lezyne Road Drive For sale either as a complete, or just frame/fork/fenders/racks/lights Designed and built in Portland.

Marrakesh is Salsa's world-touring bike, designed for fully loaded, rugged exploration. It’s stable and predictable when heavily loaded, and durable enough to take on everything from the Turkish dust to mud from Thailand’s monsoon season.

Its WTB rims and Maxxis tires love to roam where traditional touring bikes falter, and they’re spurred on by a 3x9 Deore drivetrain that allows you to fine-tune your cadence and speed, essential for loaded touring in hilly country. A pair of Hayes disc brakes keep control at your fingertips and instill confidence when terrain suggests otherwise, while Salsa’s handlebar, stem, and seatpost pair with a WTB saddle to keep your touch points comfortable in a variety of riding positions. Settle in and enjoy the adventure.

These are new framesets (not complete bikes) that had been assembled into complete bikes at the factory. Alloy frame, carbon fork. Compatible with a chain or belt, and with conventional drivetrains, internally geared hubs, or single speed. (Note that if you use a belt, your gearing options are limited to either single speed or an internally geared hub.) The bottom bracket is eccentric, but belt tension is independent of that, so you don't need to mess with the bb when you change a tube or tire or when you reinstall the rear wheel for whatever reason. Want to build your frame up with a conventional drivetrain? Order the rear derailleur hanger along with the frame (see Related Items). *Note that there is no place to mount a front derailleur.* Headset and seatpost collar included. Note: some of these framesets are from the "2016" model year and others are "2016". The only difference is a subtle change in graphics, with the 2017/2018 having a bit more white striping. The photo here of the complete bike is of a 2016. Please let us know your preference in the notes field at checkout. We'll do our best to honor your request.
The Muirwoods is at home in the concrete jungle, built for jumping curbs and cutting through a park on the way to the grocery store or class. This is the classic bike shop employee commuter bike — analogous to a steel mountain bike with slick tires — built for the everyday rider. The Muirwoods RC is the ultimate mountain bike-based commuter with a Series 2 CrMo frame featuring new slider dropouts for chain tensioning, an internally geared 8-speed Shimano Nexus hub, and 650Bx47mm "Road Plus" tires that accelerate quickly and roll almost as fast as skinnier road tires while eating up potholes and curbs. Disc Brakes Hydraulic disc brakes provide smooth, controlled stopping in all conditions with minimal maintenance. Reflective Graphics and Tires The Muirwoods features reflective frame graphics and tire sidewalls that add visibility for urban commuting.
The Presidio is Marin's dedicated commuter bike, designed with low maintenance and adaptability in mind. Its efficient design gives it the speed of a road bike, while its comfortable yet sporty geometry keeps you aware of what's going on around you, making it perfect for moving rapidly through urban streets. The lightweight aluminum frame feature all of the attachment points and braze-ons that commuters demand, while the internally geared rear hub requires little to no maintenance for the life of the bike. The Presidio's myriad of purpose-built commuter components helps you worry about the commute, and not worry about the mechanicals. The Hydraulic disc brakes offer more than just safe, secure stopping power in all conditions, but also enhances long-term service, as there are no cables or housing to wear out. Puncture resistant tires ensure your commute isn't abrupted by debris in the road, and their reflective sidewalls help keep you visible in low light conditions. A semi-plush saddle, ergonomic grips, and large platform pedals are ideal for riding comfortably in a variety of clothes and shoes and make it easy to get out and enjoy your commute. - Gates Carbon Belt Drive - 8-speed internally geared rear hub
Finally in stock! Presidio 4 is the successor to the Fairfax SC6 and among the very best-spec'd, best-conceived, best-equipped commuter bikes on the market. It features Gates Carbon Drive (belt drive), an Alfine 11 internally geared hub, Alfine thru-axle dynamo hub, Supernova lights, Tubus Racktime rack, color-matched metal fenders, and a kickstand. Compare it to our Daily Grinder commute version of the Soma Wolverine, and you'll find mostly identical specs as well as a few differences: -Presidio has an aluminum frame and carbon fork, whereas the Wolverine Daily Grinder has a Tange Prestige cromoly frame and either a cromoly or carbon fork. -Presidio has Continental Sport Contact II 700 x 32 tires, while the Wolverine Daily Grinder has wider (700 x 38) Panaracer Pasela gumwall tires. --Presidio comes with higher gearing than Wolverine: 50/22 vs 46/22, although we give our customers the option of 46/22 with Presidio for a small upcharge ($65). How to know which ratio is for you? If you don't have steep hills to climb and/or a lot of stuff to haul around, and/or if you're a strong rider who likes to go fast, 50/22 should do well for you. If you have climbs to do like those in the West Hills of Portland, or if you're in Seattle, San Francisco, or other hilly locales, 46/22 is better. If you're not sure which one you'll like better, don't hesitate to ask us for guidance.

Big Dummy is a long-tail cargo bike, which means that not only can you haul a serious amount of cargo, different accessories can be added to your Big Dummy frame and deck depending on what you want to carry. Being a dedicated single-piece frame, instead of an add-on to an existing bike, it's stiffer and resistant to torsional flex, which provides a better ride and longer lasting frame than long-tail add-ons. Like all Surly's frames, it's made of their size specific, 4130 CroMoly steel – a tube set engineered for cargo that sports lots of little touches that you've come to love in a Surly, like clearance for big tires and the use of common component sizes. Figure on being able to carry about 200 pounds (90kg) of cargo. The load weight, and how it's loaded, will affect the handling somewhat. Also, plan on using gears, especially as cargo weight increases. This may seem obvious, but as you get comfy with it, you will use your full range of gears as never before. The parts kit is good quality, and suitable to loaded as well as unloaded riding. It's got a 3x10 drivetrain, Avid BB7 disc brakes, quality Shimano Deore hubs, and 26x2.3" Kenda Kiniption tires. They've outfitted it with Surly-designed bags, deck, rails and Dummy Rail Collars; everything you need for the majority of stuff you might carry, like groceries, shovels, bags of charcoal or mulch, guitars, lamps, mannequins, whatever. Bags, deck, rails, and rail collars are all designed to improve on previous offerings and work together to make sure your stuff is transported with safety and stability. It's an unbending interface, which when you're carrying lots of cargo, is a good thing to have. Get creative, and get hauling. If you intend to carry a passenger on your Big Dummy, Surly requires use of their Dummy Rail Collars. These provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system. These are included with current Big Dummy bikes and frames, as well as available for older Big Dummy bikes and frames (compatible with all generations of Big Dummy bikes/frames). In addition, a stoker handlebar set up, found on tandem bicycles, is recommended as well. Make sure to check with seat post manufacturer for stoker handlebar compatibility. If you are planning to carry a child on your Big Dummy, Surly recommends the use of a child seat. They've tested the Maxxi Yepp seat. Yepp makes an adaptor that allows their seat to mount onto Surly's deck. It works well with the Big Dummy. At this time other child seats are not recommended and will void your warranty. Surly is testing other options. For the most up to date compatibility/options, check http://www.surlybikes.com/safety Note: keep in mind Big Dummy weight limits when carrying a passenger.
