Inventory shortages got you down? Now and then, we’ll be posting bikes, components, and other gear that’s come back into stock so you can upgrade your ride or grab some fresh gear while it lasts!

This week, it’s the Alchemy Arktos, Spot’s premium mountain bike builds, reconditioned Wahoo Trainers, and Detroit Bikes’ commuter.

Alchemy Arktos 

alchemy arktos full suspension mountain bike in stock available now

We’ll start with the Alchemy Arktos, what could be one of the most versatile full suspension mountain bikes on the market. Something of a shapeshifter, in fact. Given the correct suspension link and extender, the Arktos frame can be run in any one of the following configurations:

  • 29″ wheels, 130mm Front / 120mm Rear
  • 29″ wheels, 150mm Front / 135mm Rear
  • Mullet, 150mm Front / 135mm Rear
  • 29″ wheels, 170mm Front / 150mm Rear
  • Mullet, 170mm Front / 150mm Rear

That’s right. Each of those bikes run the exact same carbon front and rear triangles, just different links and extenders that can be purchased aftermarket for $80 and $40, respectively. You can purchase any of the above configurations direct from Alchemy Bikes, with pricing starting at $5,999. 

On the 170mm/150mm 29er, that cash gets you a FOX 38 Factory fork with GRIP2 damper, an X2 Factory shock, SRAM GX eagle drivetrain with 52T top cog, SRAM Code R brakes and an Industry Nine 29 Enduro S Hydra wheelset. Not to be sniffed at!

The Alchemy Arktos is available in Sand/Burnt Orange, Gray/Light Gray, and Charcoal/Sunburst colorways, in frame sizes M-XL.

It’s not exactly indoor training season in the Northern Hemisphere right now, with the longest day of the year basically happening right now. However, sure as eggs, winter will be upon us once more. You may not need a smart trainer right now, but in few months time when they’ve all sold out, you’ll be kicking yourself.
