ABOUT OUR USED BIKES...
Every year, starting in September, Napa Valley Bike Tours sells their entire fleet of lightly used tour and rental bikes so their touring and rental guests have new bikes to ride every year. This equates to an excellent opportunity for you to buy a bike that is in perfect mechanical condition and still looks good! There are some minor cosmetic scratches here and there, but mechanically, they are in excellent condition always serviced and maintained by our bike mechanics. We're so confident that we offer a 1-yr warranty against any mechanical defects (normal wear and tear is not covered.)
Each used bike is tuned and cleaned by us before selling so you get a sweet deal on a tuned, lubed, cleaned, great condition bike and you get the security of purchasing directly from a legitimate bike shop with a 1-yr warranty!
Looking for a bike to explore the road less traveled, while also keeping room in your wallet for a mid-ride cappuccino? Look no further than the Ruby Sport.
The frame is among the lightest that we've ever made, and it's been constructed from our superlative FACT 9r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts, and compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry. Through some advanced, dedicated engineering, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that we've all come to love from the SL4's Women's Endurance Geometry. Of course, you're probably thinking, "get on to the suspension thing up front."
We call it Future Shock, and essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this are a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Without giving a physics lecture, we found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that we could improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. And of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the new Ruby outperforms anything on the market.
Lastly, we spec'd it with a host of components that blur the lines between steadfast reliability and outright performance, like a mix of Shimano 105 and Tiagra shifting, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, durable DT R470 Disc wheels, and a women's-specific saddle.
