Hope you're enjoying this weather as much as we are- if you haven't already, stop what you're doing and get out there!

We haven't forgotten. Happy #throwbackthursday, amongst other holidays.

Your call.

Proud to sponsor @mondaynightpir series once again. First race is Monday April 17th with categories for beginners and advanced riders. Learn bike racing basics with free clinics throughout the season. Fun to race and just as fun to cheer. Come on out.

We recently built up this @waterfordbikes (Gunnar) Hyper-X with some shiny bits from our friends at @ritcheylogic and @chriskingbuzz , as well as a RCB Handbuilt wheelset featuring high-polished hoops and hubs by @velocityusa and @whiteind. Definitely worth a look over on our pro-build gallery, or check it out on our floor. Link in profile.

It's fair to say that it's not been the warmest or sunniest spring thus far. Riding with lights on especially gloomy days is always a great idea, but if you're looking for another means to stand out this season, check out our new Fluro Flanders kits our friends at @castellicycling help us put together. Webstore link in bio.

We've just brought in the Spring / Summer collection from @malojaclothing and there's great stuff for road and mountain riding. Maloja? Pronounce it "mah-low-yah". Vibrant, distinct, natural designs for women and men. #beyondthemountains See more styles on our blog, link in bio.

Just announced through the month of April - the Stumpjumper Build Kit, where you can customize your bike to put the biggest, dirtiest smile on your face.

All frames are full carbon Fact 11m with SWAT downtube. Pricing starts at $5,100 with delivery in 45-60 days. Come in any time this month and let us help you build your dream Specialized #Stumpjumper.

River City Bicycles is pleased to be the exclusive retailer for the all-new Portland™ Bubble™ Fork™ featuring RoadAirTE™ x chnology™
.. Hot on the heels of Air Max day, a new, Portland™-based, upcycled suspension company pumps up the groad biking category. Portland™ is widely renowned, (just ask anyone in town), for being the world’s foremost sustainability city and the development of a new cycling suspension shock absorber front fork only furthers that reputation. Utilizing repurposed air bubble technology sourced from running shoes found at local thrift stores, the Portland™ Bubble™ Fork™ transforms the harhsness of grinding into a plush gravel Flexperience™. No more worries about hydraulic maintenance or springy leaf springs, just the simplicity and dependability of Air™.
.. By offering 30mm of I-RT™ (Instagram-Ready Travel), the new Portland™ Bubble™ suspension fork is the perfect gravel bike expression of your social media vanity. The Bubble™ Fork™ smooths out Portland™ potholes and debris-strewn bike lanes better than any fork made anywhere by anyone else because it’s from Portland™. ..
Available only by joining a secret whisky bar first and not the one the New York Times just wrote about.
.. Pricing
Originally priced at $500 just two years ago, the Portland™ Bubble™ Fork™ is now $3750. Recent purchases of 20% over asking price are now common. ..
Principal Designer - Vince Rodarte
“My development of RoadAirTE™ x chnology™ explores the relationship between new class identities and unwanted gifts. With influences as diverse as Halson Inversion, Allsop Softride, and the Way High Patrol, new variations are created from both simple and complex forms.
Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated by the endless oscillation of air and breath. What starts out as inhalation soon becomes manipulated into a carnival of defeat, leaving only a sense of nihilism and the unlikelihood of a new beginning. But then hope, and with the breath of air from refuse comes new life. Bubble, an irrational level of value and speculation or a child’s delight? Sadly, I may never know myself.”

Just one more thing before we let you off early to start the weekend - It's the final day to submit nominations for @willametteweek Best of Portland. Please visit the WW BOP website and nominate River City Bicycles for Best Bike Shop in the Local Business category. Link in bio. Voting will take place May 1-31. Thank you.

It's not track season just yet, but it's still time to dust off the ol' track bike- we're pretty excited about the new fixed gear category at Monday Night PIR this year, starting up in just a few weeks on April 17th. The format will involve a 10-12 mile circuit around the track, and brakes are not permitted- definitely will be interesting to see some Red Hook-esque action down at PIR this season!

It might not feel like it just yet, but spring is upon us. We're pretty excited to be sponsoring the Mudslinger XC race in its 30th year this season- just wanted to remind you it's coming up sooner than you think! Don't forget to register, and check out the full Oregon Off-Road Series schedule over at oregonxcseries.org
