Dirt Jump /

Been longing to take your turn on the pump track with the rest of the crew?  Well, wait no longer.  You can ride yourself into dirt jump glory with a bike meant to take it as hard as you can give it. Come check out and test ride a proper dirt jumper from Haro, Trek, and Mirraco at either of our locations.

"I couldn't imagine a better slopestyle bike than the one Trek custom builds for me. Together, we sat down and designed a frame with the perfect angles and suspension for slopestyle. I wouldn't want to ride anything else."  - Cam McCaul


Get 'em started young, and keep 'em going with a BMX bike. With wheel sizes starting a small as 12", we can get your little grom riding safely and comfortably.

Way past grom stage? No worries. We got you covered with an arsenal of Haro and Mirraco bikes.

On a more serious note... Riding bikes is an adventure, and we want to remind you to ALWAYS wear the appropriate crash gear so you're always safe.

Sometimes the sun gets in your eyes.  Or your timing is a bit off, for some reason.  So please don't forget to rock your helmet. If you're not sure what the right gear consists of, we'd be happy to point you to the right styles of helmet, shoes, shorts and pads for whatever type of riding you're doing. Come visit either Epicenter location for more safety information.

Live to ride another day.
