Well we went up to the newly opened Burlington Bike Park and had a blast. The pump track is a tight fit but loose enough to gain speed until the world blurs. All of the jumps may look huge to new comers but they are well built with tons of room for error. I had not rode jumps in about 4 months and not on a bike in 2. But after a few laps I was hitting the medium line with no problems. They are always dialing it in so it is only going to get better.
Demolition Parts crew showed up in the Northwest to hit up our trail scene. The riders included Chris Doyle, Dave Dillewaard, Ronnie Napolitan, Kris Fox, Rob Wise and Mike “Hucker” Clark. They dodged the weather and were able to ride some sick trails and even stop by the shop for a sesh. Keep updated here…next week for shop footage!
Here at g.h.y. bikes we respect the fact that people want to spend time with their families and friends. This includes our employees.
We will be closing on Wednesday the 27th at 4:00. We will be closed Thursday 11/28 & Friday 11/29 in observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday.
We will re-open Saturday 11/30 at 10am for our:
Small Business Saturday Sale

We will be getting in several Devinci brand bikes in the next couple of months. We cant wait to get the Troy completes in stock. Hopefully by Christmas we should have a few to check out! For now here is a nice new Wilson Carbon DH Frame in Black and Blue.
We just stocked up on a ton of Deity parts. We love to support local companies and Deity is right next door to us in Idaho! Come to our store in Renton and check out all of the goodies that Eric and Sadie sent us. Thanks Guys!
We are always looking for good people with the passion for bikes. So now is the time for you to turn in your resume/video to us. It can be for any discipline including Mountain, BMX or even Road! Just send it to email@example.com. Here is a local that we helped out this last year and the video he came up with to thank us out!
I know most of you think this is just a way of “the industry” to have you spend more money. But this size wheel is pretty awesome. I personally had a 27.5 and it was a climbing machine (climbing is not my strong suit). Someone wanted it so bad I sold it. I switched back to a 26″ and my climbing definitely suffered. The only real downfall to a 27.5 is that you have to pull up a tiny bit more in order to clear jumps. After about two jumps I was used to the new wheel size. The contact patch is bigger and the cornering seems to be a little faster (except switchbacks). So if you want one of the frames…then come in quick! They might not be here if you wait. We will have them built up as soon as the parts arrive (2-3 weeks). Just a side note…I am pretty sure the next shipment for these bikes is after Christmas.
Coming next weekend our annual Bermsled Halloween race is going down. This is one of our favorite events of the year! It is an all day party with a BBQ, Riding and all kinds of other fun. To see whats up come out on October 26th. We will be hanging out all day so dont miss out. Last year it was pouring rain and we still had about 100 people and a great time. Flyer below has the details.
Location: 1424 Grant Ave S, Renton, WA 98055 (Look for the trail that goes up the hill.)
Here at g.h.y. we have been going crazy and working hard to fill/outfit the new location. We are about 3/4 of the way through our mission to bring you one of the best shops in the Northwest…NW! We are lucky enough to have great people who have helped us along the way. With all of the hard work we had the honor of hosting a demo by the Demolition Team. We threw up a shady ramp and the demolition guys and our locals proceeded to destroy the place. It was an awesome time and reminds us why we are here. And why we choose to sell bike parts. More pics…CHECK THIS.
Short notice but this is pretty huge! Come hang out at g.h.y. bikes in Renton and meet the likes of Chris Doyle, Rob Wise, Dave Dillewaard, Mike “Hucker” Clark, Ronnie Napolitan, and Kris Fox. Get autographs and maybe even ride with these legends at Renton Skatepark. This is all thanks to the great trails that they are hopefully getting to ride while here and Demolition. 5:30 on Thursday the 3rd of October 2013!
