Our purpose is your ride!
Absolute Bikes is truly and passionately engaged in making every aspect of your ride better!
Our first shop opened in 1989. Founded in Flagstaff by Ken Lane and Shawn Gillis in part as a response to the growth of demand for mountain bikes in Flagstaff, Absolute Bikes has grown to encompass three locations in two states.
We stock a diverse array of bikes, cycling clothing, cycling equipment and bicycle repair and bike fitting services to suit all sorts of cyclists.
Whether it be pedal-less "push-bikes" for toddlers, a full selection of kids bikes, BMX, entry level mountain bikes, comfort and hybrid bicycles, high-end mountain or road bikes, women's specific, freeride/DH (downhill), tandems, cruisers or more, we have a bike, (or bikes), for just about anyone.
We have a great selection of cycling shoes, bike shorts, (both traditional and baggy), cycling jerseys, cycling jackets, tights, caps, winter or summer, you name it, we have an option to keep you riding in comfort and style!
If there is anything else your bike needs, we probably have an option in stock. Cycling helmets, body armor, fenders, lights, racks, bags, pumps replacement and upgrade parts: everything necessary to complete the package.
We also offer both mountain bike rental and road bike rental in Flagstaff and Sedona. You can even apply the price of the rental towards the purchase of a new bike.
Most importantly, we have friendly, helpful, knowledgeable people who are ready to assist you in choosing the right cycling equipment, making sure it is properly tuned and installed, and then properly fit to you.
Even after that, we work hard to put on cycling events and work for bicycle access on roads and trails to help assure that we'll all have great places to ride.
Take some time to peruse our web site. Most of what we have to offer is outlined here. Feel free to drop in, call or email us any time. We are here to help all of our fellow cyclists.
