Transit Cycles  A shop dedicated to commuter, utility and touring cyclists in Tucson AZ. 520-396-4525

Gone but not forgotten. Looking forward to more of these coming in.

The Salsa Marrakesh is a Transit Cycles favorite. It is @salsacycles purpose built touring bike built to handle long loaded trips across the country anywhere your passport takes you, or load it up for your long commutes. 700x50mm tires can take you off road or on varied terrain. It even comes with a matching Brooks B17 saddle and a rear rack, 2 spare spokes on the chain stay and comfortable geometry for long days in the saddle.

Report back from Monique about the @wtfbikexplorer ride in Patagonia, AZ. 125 miles of dirt, groads and hills. Throughout the 4 day ride, we passed grassland, ocotillo forests, washes and mountain passes and compromised one day of epic tailwinds for one of brutal headwinds. We did lose a rider on the second day to allergies, since the winds were so fast (approx 25-35mph). Cattle and their calves were sprinkled along the hillside along with blooming spring flowers.
The bikes and gear varied quite a bit throughout the 8 of us. There was one fat bike, several hardtail MTBs, a gravel bike and then my Surly Ogre. Somehow, we managed to complete the ride without any mechanical mishaps or flats; luck of the draw. We did need all the spare Voile straps for tying down loose ends.
In the words of @sarahjswallow, “7 strangers, 7 unique backgrounds, 1 amazing time shared.”

Soon to be our new neighbor. @tugobikeshare station Mercado South.

Don’t forget y’all. We’ve got a sale going on. We have product in store that is as much as 50% off! Including framesets, tires and other goods. Stop in because stock is limited. But don’t stop by before noon today because we don’t open until then.

Did you know we are moving? Do you know how much I hate to move? Let’s work together to make our impending move as easy as possible. I’ll give you discounts if you buy our stuff. We both win. Some restrictions apply and we will have some things discounted as much as 50%! Sale begins tomorrow.

This color combo is too good. So good in fact that it’s already gone home.

I love tires. I’ve always preferred race tires on my road bikes. Living in Tucson means that running light, supplé, sexy tires is either going to be expensive or short lived. This area is a really hard on bike shoes. For just these reasons I’ve said for a few years now that @compasscycle tired weren’t the right tire for our corner of the Sonoran desert. That said my curiosity has gotten the better of me and I’m going to check out these Snoqualmie Pass tires for a bit and see how things go. Yes they are toobless. #supple #sosupple #heckasupple #hellasuple

*que dramatic music* The 🦍 🌧 has arrived.

Of all our soon to be new neighbors we are most excited about @westbound_tucson / @tapandbottle. The only thing that goes as well as beer with bikes is coffee...

First ride I’ve been able to take with @camilla.b.z in months. Not bad kid. Not bad.
