The Bearclaw Bicycle Co. Balthazar is the perfect set up for Northern Michigan, and we're making it easier than ever for you to find out for yourself. We have a full demo fleet of Balthazars, and you can set it up exactly how you want it.
Choose from our 85mm carbon rim ricoCHET wheelset, 50mm Little Chet 27.5+ wheels or the 29+ Big Chet wheelset as well. We even have a Rock Shox Bluto to toss on the demo of your choice to see what suspension does to your ride.
We've put in thousands of miles now and are constantly challenging what we know about plus tires, tire pressure, rim width and even wheel choice. It may be telling that both Jason Lowetz and Cody Sovis from the shop have opted for B+ wheels, finding them slightly quicker to accelerate with and climb on. Taller riders still tend to prefer the 29+ wheel for it's momentum and incredible stability in sand.
We have two medium and one large frame available, so call ahead to reserve yours or stop by to check them out.
