The weather has been great and at Rasmussen’s Bike Shop, we’ve got awesome bikes from Specialized, Bianchi, Salsa Cycles, Haro, and more. Whether it is a kid’s bike for your little cyclist’s first ride, an electric bike for commuting to work, or an adventure bike for weekend trips on roads and trails, we’ve got a store full of two-wheeled fun!
The Specialized Diverge Expert has been a popular ride this spring due to the smart design with the bump-eating Future Shock and longer wheelbase for an all-day gravel, road or trail ride. You can go anywhere on this jack-of-all trades bike and be comfortable too. Don’t need the knobby tires? Put on some plush 700x32 road tires for a super smooth ride that your friends will envy. Load it down with our new selection of Specialized Burra Burra frame bags, too!
Looking for a solid road performer? Check out the carbon fiber Specialized Roubaix with Future Shock. This bike will make for miles of smiles in comfort with hassle-free performance. We’ve got models at a number of price points to get you on the road in style.
Two of the hottest woman’s bikes of 2018 are the Specialized Dolce and Specialized Ruby. Built specially for women riders, you can choose between the value-packed responsive aluminum Dolce or lightweight carbon fiber and Future Shock-equipped Ruby for big rides ahead.
Also new to the store is a great selection of summer clothing from top brands including Specialized, Pearl Izumi, and Club Ride. We even have a brand new Des Moines jersey to show off our hometown pride! You’ll love picking out local landmarks on this keepsake cycling jersey.
Remember, we’re open seven days a week through the cycling season to assist with sales, service, and more.
