Our approach to delivering bikes is a bit different than what some may be used to. When you walk into Cyclepath you won’t find a bunch of the big, household brand names. We prefer to give a leg-up to the smaller, boutique craftsmen that typically bring the finest quality products with the most innovative features to the market.
Whether you want to build a bike piece-by-piece or go with a stock build kit, we are here to help. We provide a wide selection of incredible parts with proven track records and in a variety of different colors to ensure you have a beautiful machine that will last.
We are ready to help make your dreams a reality, no matter how small or big they may be!

Hands down the best titanium money can buy. Handbuilt in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Moots produces the prettiest welds using the highest quality seamless butted tubing available. Titanium has some fantastic ride qualities on its own, however with Moots Pi Tech butted tubing things become exceedingly smooth without any sacrifices. Come in to browse our large Moots inventory and see what new and different things those guys in Colorado have been up to recently. The ride of a lifetime and a lifetime of durability…
Breadwinner is a collaboration between Ira Ryan and Tony Pereira, two of Portland’s highly regarded builders. The concept was to bypass the long wait times of their fully custom frames by offering up these TIG welded frames in six colors and six options. Located in the Arbor Lodge neighborhood, they offer a bike in every flavor. Their bike menu includes cyclocross, road race, traditional road, loaded touring, commuter and a hard tail MTB.
Independent Fabrication is a small employee-owned and operated bicycle company who hand-craft top quality bicycles in Newmarket, New Hampshire, USA. Commonly referred to as Indy Fab or IF, Independent Fabrication is world-renowned for their custom bicycle creations in steel, titanium, carbon fiber and many variations there-in. Among their vast accomplishments, Indy Fab has twice won Bicycling Magazine’s “Bike of the Year” for their gorgeous carbon-tubed, titanium-lugged XS road frame.
Here at Cyclepath we have fallen pretty deeply in love with Canfield’s work. In particular, their hardtail frames. The Nimble 9 steel frame and it’s aluminum brother the Yelli Screamy both have slack front ends and short chainstays. These bikes beg to be pushed deep into the berms! We have several team members rocking these frames for Portland’s famous Short Track Series and for riding trails in the surrounding hills. We try to keep some in stock, but they come and go pretty quickly. If you’re looking for a versatile hardtail and don’t want a carbon frame, start here!
Headquartered in Canada, designed in California, raced to victories around the world under the Garmin-Sharp pro cycling team. Cervelo is among a small group of companies whom represent the cutting edge of bike technology. Known for their aerodynamics and epic ride quality, Cervelos pretty much sell themselves. Take a ride on one and see why.
The advantages and disadvantages of 29ers are often debated in the mountain bike community. Those who believe the 29″ wheel to be inferior often mention added weight, perceived sluggishness in handling, and problems with fit (specifically, front wheel/toe overlap and high standover height). Twenty-niner enthusiasts respond with comments about reduced rolling resistance, perceived increased stability without sacrificing quick handling, and an enhanced ability to roll over obstacles. Front and center of the 29″ wheel proponents are the good folks at Niner Bikes. In their words, “The 29” wheeled bike isn’t just a token in our line-up. It is our one and only love, our heart and soul out there on the trail.” Is the 29er the holy grail of wheels sizes? We urge you to try one out and decide for yourself.
Pioneers of asymetrical carbon layups and design, Pinarello is known for their comfortable but stiff race machines. Their advanced engineering clearly trickles down the entire product lineup, creating a family of bikes that perform well at any price point. Bradley Wiggins rides a Dogma 61.5, so can you!
After leaving Titus Cycles (the brand he co-founded in 1991), Chris Cocalis focused on building a new brand from scratch – Pivot Cycles. Pivot has since became renowned for its top-quality full suspension bikes. What makes these bikes so incredible? In Chris’ words, “Pivot bikes are a result of riding the best bikes made, recognizing the positive traits and the weakness’ and designing something better. It’s everything from the suspension design, geometry, frame stiffness, proper fit, chain line, durability, stiffness and so on. We pay attention to the details and are very proud to have riders enjoy the product of our passion and hard work.”
Yeti is a high-end mountain bike manufacturer known for their incredible ride quality and iconic turquoise paint schemes. Founded back in 1985, Yeti has always remained true to its roots in racing and real-world testing. Sponsoring it’s own factory team that boasts some of the greatest names in mountain biking has long-allowed Yeti to make bikes that are not only manufacturing masterpieces but designed around the needs of top riders. If a bike is good enough for John Tomac, Missy Giove, or Jared Graves, it’s probably good enough for you. Most recently, Yeti made waves with its patented “Switch Technology” suspension platform that features an eccentric link placed low in the frame that allows for efficient pedaling without sacrificing big hit capabilities. The Switch is the soul of the incredibly popular SuperBike (SB) line, available in all three wheels sizes and a variety of frame materials.
