Happy New Year

2015 is winding down and we just wanted to say a huge, Thank You!, for another awesome year. We have so many memories to look back on…

We helped a Mother/Daughter team get into cycling and do their first century ride, we had another amazing Helmet Party (and progress on getting those bike parks built!), a rainy shop “Gentlemans Enduro” at Blue Mountain, countless sunny days at Discovery Bike Park and dark nights on fatbikes in the Rattlesnake. An endless stream of stories of tours and epic rides from stoked customers. We even got out on some adventures that didn’t involve cycling.

We were honored once again to be recognized as one of America’s Best Bike Shops and locally we were told we’re doing things right by again getting named to the Independent’s Best of Missoula list.

We welcomed some new faces to the staff, both in the shop area and on the sales floor and the extended MBW family grew with the arrival of a child.

It was another amazing year and we can’t thank you all enough for letting us do this thing we do. All the best to you and yours in 2016, see you out on the bikes!

Santa’s Sleigh, Deeply Discounted

This is a 2014 GT Force Carbon Expert.


It’s a pretty amazing bike. Carbon frame, 27.5 wheels, loads of travel, dropper seat post, triple chainring to make the climbs to those gnarly descents simple. This on is a medium and it’s brand spanking new. Never ridden. The powers that be have decided it needs to go to make room for newer models so we’re blowing it out.

Normally, $4,799 would put this in your garage. We’re letting it go for $3,200. Give us a call at the shop at (406)721-6525 or stop in today.

The Red and White would look great under a Christmas tree. It’s up to you who’s name gets put in the To: field on the tag…

Let it snow

Old Man Winter hasn’t forgotten about Missoula after all. Winter biking can be a bit daunting when you first start out. Most of us in the shop commute by bike year round, rain, snow or shine. So, if you’d like to get started or just need some tips on how to improve your set up we’re happy to let you know what works and what doesn’t for us. Inversions and early sunsets are hard enough to deal with this time of year, don’t add a commute in a car to the things that put a damper on your day!


Day 5 of our 12 Days of Christmas is today and that means Helmets are 20% off. The previous 4 days are still eligible, just mention that you saw it on here or Facebook to get the discount.

And Surly still has some fatbikes deeply discounted! Stop by the shop today and we’ll see you out there on that commute!

Stocking Stuffer

Looking for a simple gift idea? Well, we’ve got one for ya. Giro wool socks, a bottle of Rock-n-Roll Gold lube, Pedro’s tire levers, an MBW sticker, and a Kona pint glass. That’s $40 worth of stuff for just $25. Can’t beat that with a candy cane…

4 days down…

Our 12 Days of Christmas sale is flying by, as this time of year seems to do. Stop in today and get your shopping done early!

The 3rd Day of Christmas, saddles, grips and bar tape are 20% off! Contact points on the bike are key for comfort. Show your hands and rear that you care!

The 4th Day of Christmas, all gloves and hats are 20% off! From the awesome Giro Rivet 2 to the Sturmfist 4, windproof skullies from Pearl Izumi to a nice Surly Wool cycling cap. We’ve got tons of choices in stock and ready to keep Winter wind or the Summer sun at bay.

12 Days of Christmas

Our annual sale is under way! Check out our Facebook page every morning to find out the deal of the day. The sales each day carry on until Christmas Eve so, even if you miss a one you don’t have to miss out on discounts of 20% or more!

As for this space, keep your eyes peeled here. We’ve rolled our News and Events into one tab. It’ll let us keep you more informed of whats going on in the shop and the Missoula cycling community at large. Eventually, we’ll be doing some blog posts here as well.

Thanks for checking us out!
