What Are You Doing On Halloween Night?

Halloween On A Saturday! So Many Options!

Of course, you might find yourself at a nightclub or party on Halloween night, but those aren't your only options! 

1. Friends who also ride bikes might know about group rides with all the riders in costume! Or - organize your own ride!

2. Check local (or not so local) venues to see if a band you like is playing near you. Or maybe go see someone you've never heard before! You can go in costume, there will definitely be others dressed up, maybe even the band will be!

3. Theme parks such as Magic Mountain, Knott's Berry Farm and Universal Studios have Halloween themed actors whose only job is to make you scream! *Warning* This is not for the faint of heart.

4. The last suggestion we have is a more recent phenomenon and it has just opened in Upland. It's called: Trapped - A Real Life Room Escape Adventure. With levels named: The Chamber, Jailbreak and The Puzzle Master, you and your friends can have a terrifyingly fun experience!

Please be safe on Halloween and don't forget that we have lights, helmets, bike locks and much much more at Bumstead's Bicycles!!

We are located at 1038 W. 4th St in Ontario, CA.

2016 Trek Dual Sport Hybrid Bikes - 8.2 through 8.6 DS

Extremely Fun To Ride, Versatile and Road Bike FAST

DS Series is the ultimate hybrid: part refined city bike, part adventurous trail ride. Fast 700c wheels, capable suspension, and a light, strong frame make DS the go-anywhere choice.

8.2 DS

Want a bike that you can use as a daily commuter, but then ride local trails on the weekend? Start here.

Trek's Alpha Gold Aluminum frame, built in Suspension fork with massive tire clearance (accomodating 700x35c tires with fenders or a 29"x1.8" MTB tire w/o fenders), and ergonomic grips make this bike a great workhorse, yet give you the flexibility of riding on harsher roads or trails.

7.3 DS

With the 8.3 DS, you still get the great Alpha Gold Aluminum Frame, tire clearance and rack and fender mounts, and you also get a hydraulic suspension fork lock-out and a few upgrades in the drivetrain, brakes, and saddle.

8.4 DS

For just a few more bucks you can find yourself on an 8.4 DS in a stunning viper red or (matte black).

It features a blendr stem for maximum user-friendliness, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes for amazing stopping power, as well as tubeless ready rims and puncture resistant tires.

Other Specifications: Shimano Alivio/Acera 27-speed drivetrain, Bontrager H1 saddle and Bontrager Satellite Grips.

8.5 DS

Before we get to the top of the line 8.6 DS, we arrive at the 8.5

Key features include a suspension lock-out with a remote, an upgrade to a 27-speed Deore drivetrain, and an upgrade to Shimano BR-M355 disc brakes with 160mm rotors.

Other features: Bontrager Evoke 1.5 saddle, and Bontrager LT2 Expert Tires

8.6 DS

At the top of the DS line is the 8.6. Here you will find the best components from the entire lineup:

Shimano T551 crank
Shimano SLX 30-speed drivetrain
Shimano SLX M675 Shadow Plus rear derailleur

Other features: Shimano SLX M670, 10 speed shifters, Shimano M445 hydraulic disc brakes

Come in to Bumsteads Bikes today to see all the Trek bikes we have in stock! We would love to help get you on the bike of your dreams!

[VIDEO REVIEW] 2016 Trek Farley 5 - 27" x 4" Inch Tires!

Snow? Sand? Rocks? You Got This.

In this video, Lloyd shows you the features and tells you some of the specifications of the 2016 Trek Farley 5.

The tires are 27" x 4", and the bike can accomodate up to a 5" tire. Very wide rim, lots of tread on the tire - which gives you an amazing amount of traction. Normal mountain bike tires simply can not handle the types of terrain this bike was built for.

Why might you want a bike like this?

The large diameter of the rim and wide tire allows for a variety of tire pressures. You can lower the tire pressure to the point where you basically have suspension! The approximate one inch of "give" makes the bike feel much more comfortable accross rough terrain, even though the bike is completely rigid.

Disc brakes, Shimano/SRAM shifters/drivetrain and bontrager seat, seatpost, handlebar, grips, and stem.

Come in to Bumsteads Bicycles today to see this bike and many others from Trek!
