This Bianchi, in a 53cm or 55cm frame, is up for grabs and regularly sells for $924. Complete Bike Specs. Stop by the shop any time it’s open, through Sunday, April 3, and buy a raffle ticket for only $10—and check out all the other new Bianchi road bikes. Proceeds of sales support the OCBC BikeMS team. You can also buy a raffle ticket at our Bike Bingo Adventure Race fundraiser party at Eno’s on April 3. The winner will be announced that day and doesn’t need to be present to win.

We are going to start feeding you at the trailheads from now on so come down and enjoy the trails with us. This Sunday, March 27th we will kick off our barbikecue/demoish thingy. Sorry we aren’t as rich as some of your favourite shops, but if you would like to try out some Sram™ shifting or single speed madness, we will bring a few bikes for you to throw a leg over. Bring your bike and let’s ride!

Oak Cliff Nature Preserve

The OCBC BikeMS team is raising money to ride from Frisco to Fort Worth April 30–May 1.

Join us for our Bike Bingo Adventure Race fundraiser on Sunday, April 3, from 12 to 2 at Eno’s. Show up and register at 12. Get your bike bingo card at 12:45. Ride to local Oak Cliff spots, look for clues, and text in the secret phrase. Be back by 2. Prizes will be given to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-place winners. Minimum suggested donation to support our MS cause: $10 per rider. This is a family-friendly event. It’s not just about speed—it’s about strategy, wit, enjoying Oak Cliff, supporting a good cause, and just getting on a bike and having fun. Wear a helmet. You can ride as a team or an individual. Don’t forget to get a $10 raffle ticket for your chance to win a 53cm or 55cm 2011 Bianchi Via Nirone 7 Sora.


Popping wheelies is totally rad. But when it comes to choosing a bike for getting around town, tricks are for kids. With that in mind, consider Linus. We recently restocked the shop with several models: the Mixte and Roadster Classic.

Inspired by the elegant but basic designs of French city bikes of the ’50s and ’60s, Linus achieves the aesthetic of a modern vintage cycle: straight, clean lines, monochromatic colors and no excessive logos. It’s the perfect mix of a cruiser and commuter.

Probably the best thing about Linus, besides its good looks, is the extremely wallet-friendly price. An entry-level is only $409. It’d be hard to find a functioning secondhand bike on Craigslist for much less.

Mixte. Three speed, $589. Current colors: Black or Cream.

Roadster Classic. Single speed, $409. Three speed, $579. Current colors: Black or Cream. We do have a *barely used* three speed in blue, too.

The shop will be adding new styles in late spring/early summer. Holla if you wanna pre-order a style/color before they go out of stock—this does happen. These are pretty fresh:

We’re Salsa riders here at OCBC—we love their bikes. They keep innovating into exactly the type of riding that we do. Two of my most memorable rides over the past months have been a century on a Salsa La Cruz and a 3-day bike camping trip in Arkansas on a Salsa Fargo. We fell so much in love with them that we decided to pick up the brand and offer it to you—so come check them out in person.  If you’ve never ridden SRAM, it’s a great opportunity to try out their magic at the very least.

We have a medium Fargo complete with Apex/X9 2X10 for you all-purpose tough guys.

Ahh, the El Mariachi, where to begin: If I could build a bike up this is spec’d out exactly how I would build it! First off, steel is real baby. Rock Shox Reba RL air fork. Stan’s ZTR Arch rims, Avid elixir disc brakes, SRAM X9 2×10 drivetrain and shifters. We have a medium and a large in stock. If this isn’t the build you would like, we also have a large frame available for all you silly Shimano fans.

Salsa Casseroll—not only is this bike beautiful and elegant, it’s set up so you can go on all-day rides, commute around town, or hit a long winding gravel road that takes you off into the sunset (or tavern, if you’re riding with me).

For you 26ers, we have an Ala Carte available for rent and an 18″ frameset available.

I love a beautiful bike and EVERYONE  loves a beautiful lady, when they come together, ahh what a pairing. Our buddy Matthew sure showed his love when he asked us to build a custom cruiser for his sweetheart! The wooden grips are gorgeous, but my favorite touch is the Sturmey Archer™ 2 speed internal kickback hub. This was a really fun frame up build that we are extremely happy with as always. Beautiful, classy, and unique; just like it’s owner. Happy Birthday Lady!

Earlier this morning our pal Jason Roberts posted a nice article on Bike Friendly Oak Cliff about how Ean and Jeremy (above) foiled the plans of a pair of bike thieves. Nice work, guys.
