Mountain Bike Spotlight: Rocky Mountain Bikes

Rocky Mountain Gear

Rocky Mountain Bikes History

Rocky Mountain has been making mountain bikes since 1981. From kids to pros, Rocky Mountain builds bikes for riders of every ability to contribute to the growth and progression of the cycling industry. Rocky Mountain builds bikes that help riders “Love the Ride.” They are based out of the North Shore of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada.

Rocky Mountain Bikes and Owenhouse Cycling

Owenhouse Cycling has been selling bikes since the late 1800s, and Rocky Mountain Bikes has been building and selling bikes since the early 80s. No matter how you slice it, that’s almost 200 years of combined bike experience! Although their company was born and developed in Canada and we sell bikes in the United States, we share one giant mountain range in common. It only makes sense that we would carry Rocky Mountain Bikes to play on Bozeman’s trails in the Rocky Mountains.

Whether you love to shred on the winter snow, flow on singletrack in the summer, or hit the park with your kids, we carry the bike for you. When you’re searching “bike shop near me,” be sure to click on the one that doesn’t just talk the talk. They also walk the walk. Or, in our case, ride the ride! Like us, Rocky Mountain Bikes is devoted to loving the ride. We are proud to support Rocky Mountain Bikes in our bike shop.
