Bikes from Ivanhoe Cycles
We have Melbourne's largest range of Giant Mountain Bikes, and strive to keep as many models in stock at any time so that you have as many as possible to select from.
These bikes only excel in one direction: downhill. The sport will appeal to those who crave speed and adrenaline. Downhill racing requires superb technical bike handling skills and no small amount of nerves.
Brands that we support are Giant, GT and Rocky Mountain. The Giant Glory has been proven at the World Cup circuit beneath WC Champion Danny Hart. The bike has had some serious development in the past couple of years, with updated geometry and updated aluminium frame manufacturing. The Glory is known for its quality and value for money, attributes that have made it a popular choice for beginners and intermediates for their local DH tracks and State rounds.
The GT Fury is the most exciting DH machine to be released in years. Always considered an underdog, GT has had a stellar run beneath Gee and Rachel Atherton at the World Cup Series; its success then was due to a completely re-worked geometry, aluminium tubing and processing and updated rear suspension kinematics. It's a solid step forward for GT and its impact will be felt by all in the coming year.
All Mountain is true mountain biking. It's the love of the mountains; cloud covered peaks, endless ribbons of dirt, extreme high speed descents and treacherous ascents, this terrain requires a machine that will excel in all conditions and terrain; a true go anywhere, ride anything machine.
Giant has addressed the All Mountain segment with the Reign. Using the time proven Maestro suspension system, the bike can climb well, and descends better. Featuring travel adjust suspension, adjustable seat posts, chain guide and performance transmission; there's a lot that you get for your money.
GT have the Force. They have made several important changes to the Force which meets and exceeds the demands of modern-day riders for events such as Gravity Enduro racing. Updated geometry, suspension kinematics with a brand new carbon fibre frame.
For those that are after something boutique, consider Rocky Mountain Maiden. One of the best handling mountain bikes in its class, it doesn't disappoint on performance or aesthetics. One of the key features is adjustable geometry; allowing riders to one of four options. Named Ride 9 it allows rapid fine adjustment for when you're riding black diamond terrain or technical descents. Switch back when you plan on a cruisy cross country/trail ride. The Maiden features correct weight distribution, a great carbon frame with excellent strength to weight ratio, and Ride 9 to ensure the ultimate handling.
AGGRESSIVE TRAIL BIKES
Aggressive trail bikes are designed for those that have a small bias towards descending. Even though they may not be as quick on the ascents, they are super fun on the descents; giving enormous control through slightly more technical terrain than general cross country tracks. Aggressive Trail bikes will also suit riders that love riding jumps, high speed berms, technical rock gardens and moderate sized drop-offs.
The Giant Trance has addressed the needs of Trail riders for years. Its 27.5" frame and versatility have propelled the bike's popularity and it's certainly been our most popular dual-suspension platform ever. Confidence inspiring geometry makes the Trance controlled and fun on the descents, and its Maestro suspension system helps put power down and ensures traction in the most treacherous conditions.
The revamp of the GT Sensor caused a sensation. GT has released a brand new carbon frame and layup, suspension configuration and updated geometry for the Sensor platform. The Sensor is available in aluminium frame or carbon-fibre frames. The frame is optimised for 650B wheels, and benefits from agile handling, more traction and control.
