2023 Bike Guide Mountainbikes

Continuing on our 2023 Bike Guides, here is our selection of Mountain Bikes.

I know there are many cheaper options available online. however, buying through a bike shop has many advantages including bike quality, brand integrity, cost of ownership (repairs, warranty, etc), and the safety of having the bike professionally assembled. With bikes, almost more than anything else, you get what you pay for.

Email, call (347 457 5760) or just stop by to check availability, timeframe or to place an order.

Bike Selector: Not too interested in heading to a bike shop that has 100’s of bikes lined up, aisle after aisle? Lets cut to the chase with our one-on-one Bike Selector experience. It’s me (Joe, owner of 718) and you (you) figuring this out, real-time and responsive (I’ve built my business on being responsive to my customers). Free-to-use and no obligation.

Kona Lana’i $699

We all remember our first mountain bike. For many of us it was a bike like the Lana’i. Affordable enough not to feel too risky but stocked with components that give you the freedom to explore off-road. The Lana’i features integrated shifters and brake levers to streamline the cockpit and is now available in three wheel sizes: 26" for size XS, 27.5" for S and M, and 29" for L and XL. With an 8-speed drivetrain, grippy disc brakes and a 100mm travel fork, the Lana’i is the perfect way to taste what real singletrack riding has to offer.

Designed with geometry like our Komodo, the Highpoint® is ready to tackle all aspects of trail riding. With a 5” travel fork with thru axle and tubeless rims, the Highpoint performs as a true all-arounder. It’s a fact: larger wheels roll over obstacles more easily than smaller wheels.

Kona Unit and Unit X, $1399-$1599

the Unit were to put out a wanted ad for its ideal rider it might look something like this: Cromoly, single-speed badass ISO someone to adventure with. Some people call me rigid. I think I’m just classy. I like long rides in the sun (or mud, or snow), will carry all your stuff, will last forever, and promise to be the bike that turns heads wherever you go. I can be converted to a 12-speed if that’s your thing. Like food? I have Bento box mounts too! Let’s party!

Surly Lowside, $1549

Lowside is like the grownup version of the bike you rode when you were a kid and still had hopes and dreams and some semblance of ambition. It’s just as happy riding singletrack as it is parked outside your favorite drinking establishment.

Lowside is a single speed mountain bike. Singlespeeding has been a part of Surly’s DNA since day one when we launched the 1x1 Rat Ride. After a lot of Homie Fall Fests and more feats of strength than we can recall, we decided to discontinue it a couple years back. Lowside picks up right where the 1x1 left off.

Surly Lowside, $1549

Kona Big Honzo $1599-$1999

The Big Honzo is a killer bike for the price. It’s got everything you need and nothing you don’t. Hubs featuring Boost spacing hold nice, beefy 2.8” tires. This is the perfect bike for when you need a little extra grip rolling over tricky roots and rocks.

Surly Ogre, $1749

If you’re like us, your bike needs likely change by the day, week, month or year. Quite the adaptable little beast, Ogre can get you to your job during the week, then way out of town on the weekend. It’s not sluggish on pavement or gravel and can also hold its own on singletrack.

Ogre is designed to be the ultimate steel utility vehicle. It relishes in those “take-the-long-way-home-and-find-some-beverages-along-the-way” sort of commutes. Snow, sleet or sweltering humidity, this is an ideal year-round commuter bike. You can also haul enough crap on it that you don’t even have to go home if you don’t want to.

The Wo has been a staple in our fat bike lineup for a few years now. Its simple, dependable design has made it a favorite for fat bike aficionados everywhere. Running a wide range 11-speed drivetrain, durable cranks, and big ol’ 4.8” tires on tubeless-ready rims, the Wo gets you where you need to go with ease.

The Woo continues to be one beloved fat beast! Its ability to carry massive amounts of gear with its three-pack cage mounts aboard its carbon disc fork make it a sand and snow bikepacking favorite. With geometry derived from the Honzo, ultra-powerful hydraulic disc brakes and a 12-speed drivetrain, you’re in complete control whether climbing up snowy mountains or surfing sandy descents. 4.8” tires ensure that rolling over anything is possible.

Surly Wednesday, $1849

Wednesday sits in the middle of our Trail category, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that’s its only use. With Wednesday, we borrowed elements from some of our Trail and Touring models to create a versatile fat tire trail bike that can truly handle anything you want to attempt.

If you do an equal amount of off-road touring as you do hitting trails, Wednesday’s ability to play both parts equally will suit you well. Or, if you’re looking for a fat bike and don’t need the fattest tires on the market, Wednesday’s 26 x 4.6” tire clearance is just the ticket.

Surly Wednesday, $1849

Surly Karate Monkey, $1849-$2649

Karate Monkey delivers a resilient, lively ride on all sorts of gnarly terrain. Its frame is a highly-versatile canvas for whatever dirty masterpiece your brain cooks up. According to our computing machine (Thor) it can be set up in approximately 487 different configurations.

Originally designed as a 29er (and the frame that helped spark the 29” wheel movement), the latest Karate Monkey is designed to perform just as admirably as a 27.5+ rig as well. This allows you to pick your poison — provided your poison is having a really great time while permanently donning a shit-eating grin, of course.

Surly Krampus, $1849-$2649

As the first “plus” bike to hit the market, Krampus changed the way many people approach trail riding. It’s shown people the light of how high volume, large diameter tires can vastly improve the ride experience. It’s also done a bang-up job dispelling the myth that big tires make you slow.

Krampus is kind of like the opposite of a mullet: long in the front and short in the rear. With a long toptube and compact chainstays, it takes trail-shredding abilities to the next level. A mullet may be business in the front, party in the back but Krampus makes partying its business.

Kona Honzo $1899-$3099

Often imitated, but never duplicated, the Honzo is a part of Kona’s foundation. The Honzo is the solution for the rider wanting something a bit more aggressive than a traditional cross-country hardtail. A 130mm fork provides just enough suspension to make quick work of technical sections of trail. Whether you’re a seasoned rider looking for timeless hardtail or a newer rider looking to go a bit deeper into the mountain bike world, the Honzo is an excellent choice.

Engineered first and foremost around a stable and comfortable drop-bar hand position, its trail-ready geo provides a spirited ride on mixed terrain.

Jamis Komodo 29, $1999

Surly Ice Cream Truck, $2349

From log and root covered ribbons of twisty singletrack to miles of powdery snow or sandy beaches, Ice Cream Truck can handle it all. Hell, you could probably even hop over a grizzly if the situation arises. Probably.

While we could certainly throw out terms like “confidence-inspiring” and “traction-laden” to describe Ice Cream Truck, those phrases are mostly bullshit, so we’re not going to do that. We’re not here to inspire you, and we didn’t laden it with anything. What we did do was design a monolith of a trail bike that doesn’t give two shits about what’s in front of it.

If we had to sum up the Hei Hei in one sentence it would be this: The Hei Hei is fast, fun, easy to ride, climbs like a mountain goat, descends like a cheetah, is affordable, has no frills but everything you need with its 120mm of front and 100mm of rear travel, and will ensure that you end every ride with a smile on your face.
