I had an awesome experience here. They helped my get a new seat and stem and the folks couldn't have been nicer, can't wait to go back! It's one of the largest and most friendly bike shops ever! Check it out!!!

They know everything there is to know about bike mechanics and also serve as amazing guides for area mountain biking. They just created the most useful, clear and easy to use map of... More

Really nice shop with everything you need. Showed up with 3 broken bikes after a day of riding and they squared us away right away. Would definitely go back to them.

Absolute is fantastic. Their staff is extremely knowledgable about both equipment, area trails, and bike fits. You won't find a friendlier staff around or one who is more invested in their community. We have actually driven from AZ to CO to buy bikes from this shop because we love them so much.

We rented two bikes for a day and received outstanding customer service. The staff member took the time to make sure the bikes were completely tuned up, ready to go, fitted to us, and also gave us trail recommendations. The bikes were in perfect condition and were a joy to ride.

Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Extremely easy to navigate website, where you can make your bike rental reservation. These bikes are top of the line, so you will pay for it, but I think their prices are fair. Called before making my reservation to get some recommendations on which bike I should rent. I got some unbiased advice, and... More

Before my visit to Salida I called a few bike shops to get some local info. The people at Absolute Bikes were extremely helpful and willing to talk to me for as long as I needed. On my first ride there my bike started acting up and I was in a panic knowing I only had 4 days to ride... More

We went on a guided tour to St. Elmo, Hancock, and Alpine Lake withour 55 year old plus bodies weren't trained well enough to fully enjoy the experience, so the e-bikes were perfect for us. The store manager Earl set this up for us - with a goal of making it a great experience for us. And it was! We... More

We spent 5 amazing days in Salida with our teen sons and were told to use Absolute Bikes if we wanted to rent bikes. From the minute we walked into the store, we were promptly greeted by multiple staff members. We inquired about bike tours and rentals and were quickly introduced to several options that they offer for our family... More

Had a great guided day trip with 17 Boy Scouts and parents from the San Diego area on the 4th of July. The guys at Absolute Bikes made the trek extremely enjoyable and I was impressed with the quality rental equipment provided.
