The New Revolution is Here: 2014 Giant Trance Advanced 1 – 27.5

November 22, 2013

With the benefits of both a 29er and 26er, 27.5 inch wheels have made a big splash in the mountain bike world this year.  After over a decade of smaller builders and a few mass-production brands utilizing the standard, the floodgates were opened in 2014 and 27.5 inch wheels rocketed to the top of the list of mainstream innovations.

One of the brands leading the charge with light, high-performance and affordable 27.5 bikes is Giant.  The 2014 Trance represents the culmination of incredible research and development as well as rider testing under the likes of Adam Craig and Carl Decker.  We have a few of these in the shop (and one for demo!).  Jump past the break to see why we can’t wait to shred this new bike.


5 inches of suspension and 27.5 wheels make even the gnarliest of trails heavenly.

Dillon Turner - riding fast at UCI BMC World Championships in New Zealand!

Dillon Turner – riding fast at UCI BMC World Championships in New Zealand!

Colorado bike races are more popular than ever. The physical challenge of Colorado’s altitude combined with amazing alpine views pair for a cycler’s dream.

What makes it even better?  Cool bikes, new bike parts, and team riders crushing it in local, national, and international mountain bike races.

We’re super proud of our team racers at

  • Congrats to PeakCycles BMX Rider Dillon Turner – riding fast at UCI BMC World Championships in New Zealand!
  • High fives to Joshua Murdock and Taylor Shull for impressive showings at the Mountain Bike Nationals in Bear Creek, Pennsylvania!
  • Stellar finish for Stacy Moller at the Leadville Silver Rush 50!

Congrats to all of our racers!  At, we do all we can to support our competitive and non completive athletes.  And while our racers can tell you, racing takes its toll on themselves as athletes, but also on their bikes. The season is in full swing and most venturing into the shop want to know how to ride faster, ride easier, and what they need to do either get their bike parts in order or keep them well maintained.

What can we learn from our podium finishers?  For starters, they start their races with a clean and lubricated chain.  They make sure to lubricate the moving parts of brakes and derailleurs. Their brake pads are in good shape and tires have the appropriate air pressure.  And, most importantly, after they race, they inspect their bike and replace damaged bike parts.

Get in to the shop to hear about our racers most recent adventures and success stories.  Let’s finish this season strong!

The Quickest Way To Get Faster? Get a Bike Fit!

May 9, 2013

Leg strength, endurance, and fitness are at the heart of cycling speed, but without a proper bike fit, you are sabotaging your training efforts.  Whether you’re just starting to ride or you’ve been cycling for a long time, consider the benefits of a professional bike fit.  At, we know how important a bike fit is.  It is so important that we recently devoted an entire room in our Golden, Colorado Peak Cycles Bike shop just for bike fitting.  But in case you are unaware, fit impacts comfort but also technique which is crucial to preventing overuse injuries.  Your body’s position on the bike affects how you ride. It affects how much power you can efficiently deliver to the pedals. It affects how comfortable you are on the bike.

In a sport based on such a highly repetitive action, like pedaling, the first line of defense against injury is a proper bike fit.  So what is a proper bike fit?  It doesn’t simply consist of setting a saddle height and bar reach. In today’s market, bike brands are designing some top-end rides for us to enjoy, but with these bikes come different geometries.  Many cyclist replacing bikes or bike parts inquire about the following bike components and their role in an overall bike fit:

  • Crank Length
  • Saddle Tilt
  • Saddle Height
  • The Fore-Aft Saddle Position
  • Knee over the pedal axle
  • Handlebar Position
  • Stock frame sizing
  • Cleat positioning

Do you know how these bike components fit in YOUR bike fit?  That would be good to know. In our full comprehensive bicycle fits by George Mullen, every cyclist  benefits from a good bike fit.  

  • Beginners who aren’t familiar with how a bike should fit and feel.
  • Current riders who can’t get comfortable on their current setup or have nagging injuries
  • Competitive cyclists who are looking for marginal gains. There’s no doubt that more power can result from tweaking your bike position.  It is well understood that a good aero fit is the most cost-effective way to speed up your bike split.

With eleven years of fitting experience and over over two-thousand fits, George is has the experience, the tools and the advanced training to handle any fit scenario. Stop by the Peak Cycles bike fitting studio to schedule a fit.  Also, order any bike parts you need from a recent fit online at  We offer a  huge selection of road bike parts, mountain bike parts, BMX bike parts and more. If you need it for your bike, then we have it!

Turner Posse Visits Superior Bike Park

March 20, 2011

The recently opened Superior Bike Park is packed full of fun and variations for all riders. The guys from LeeLikesBikes designed and build the track for the City of Superior. The park has 2 pump tracks, one beginner and one expert; also two flow trails, one beginner and one expert. Having spent a few days on at the park, I feel good saying that the expert pump track is the best in the state- HAND DOWN!!!

The park is located just south of Hwy 36 and McCaslin Blvd- on Rock Creek Parkway.

Colorado Indoor BMX Racing

January 24, 2010

An enthusiastic group of people have orchestrated early season racing up in Greeley! Colorado Indoor BMX will be hosting three race weekends- One in early January, one in mid February, and the last one in March. The Turner Posse headed up for the first race, there was a huge turnout on both days, I’d guess 350-400 on Saturday with 32 motos (by age and level) and 250-300 on Sunday with 28 motos. Even though the turnout was less on Sunday, the racers on Sunday were the hardcore seasoned riders. After 3 qualifiers for each  age group, Saturday ended up with both Conrad and Dillon making the final for their age group and both got second place podiums. On Sunday, only Lander made the final and managed to blow a tire in the first turn, he was bummed, he had a good shot at making the podium, alas he will race another day.

So you are asking yourself, why do i care…..?

They have a MTB class that does not require ABA membership, that’s why! Bring your $10 and a MTB, and you get a full day of racing indoors. It would be great to get a bunch of the team out there and invite as many other Front Range teams and hope for a huge turn out.

For more info-

Update- The Turner Boys just got their district numbers for 2010-

Conrad is #121

Dillon is #73 (hoping to move up to expert)

Lander is # 129

Good job little BPC’ers!
