It’s Time to Ride Fat(ish)

tiredDo you have trouble finding a tire size that fits you just right?  Maybe you’ve found your mountain bike a bit skinny for your needs, but a four-inch tire is just too fat.  Well fret no more!  World of Bikes is proud to carry a selection of bikes sporting plus-sized tires that’ll fit your riding style perfectly.  With more tire comes more traction and stability, but who says you have to sacrifice playfulness to get it?  These bikes are both nimble and ready to take on literally any terrain you can throw at them.  Come on in and take a spin on the Advocate Hayduke (a trail-crushing steel-machine), the full-squish Salsa Ponyrustler, or the playful Trek Stache.


Do you crush gravel, and speak for the trees?
The Lorax is here, and suits all your needs!


We’re happy to say that we’ve now got the Advocate Cycles Lorax in stock! This gravel crusher features a steel frame, carbon fork, and full Shimano Tiagra 2×10 drivetrain – and while it’s a perfect fit for any Iowa’s country roads, this amazing ride would also feel perfectly at home on a cyclocross course or a gnarly commute. Come on in and take a test ride!
