We are a service-oriented shop, and we insist on giving our customers the one-on-one time they deserve. Our shop is busier than ever! In order to serve you as best we can, we highly recommend scheduling an appointment for bike fits, new bike inquiries (including custom spec bike builds), e-bike test rides, etc.
Effective 5/18/21, Tuesdays and Thursdays are shortened to 10:30am-2:30pm. This is to help us keep up with new bike builds and bike repairs. We have experienced unprecedented growth and demand for our bikes and services and we needed additional time to build and wrench bikes!
We LOVE bikes -- we love riding, building, racing, tweaking, maintaining, upgrading, and fitting them. The professional level fitters at IBB Cyclery & Multisport are Kirk and Charity Nelson, and bike builder, Kirk, raced as a professional triathlete 2006 - 2014. We both have an unexplainable PASSION for bikes!
Why should you consider IBB Cyclery & Multisport for your next bike purchase, upgrade, or tune-up?
We ride our bikes......A LOT. With over 15 years of competitive racing and training at the top level, we understand how a bike and its rider must GEL to become one, single, MACHINE, working efficiently in order to produce power and speed, indefinitely. When custom spec'ing a new build for a customer, we consider EVERY little detail that goes into the final product. The result is a MASTERPIECE - a bicycle that fits like a glove, giving the rider incredible satisfaction that only comes with a comfortable, powerful position that lasts for hours in the saddle.
|Pre-Selah Calgary 70.3 Race - 5th!|
In my (Kirk) 14 years of racing triathlons (9 at the pro level), I have built, maintained, and fitted the large majority of the ~20+ bikes I've owned, including TT/Tri, road, cyclocross, and mountain bikes. In 2011, I began working on and fitting bikes for coaching clients. In 2012, I began building up and selling custom spec'd, gently used bikes -- locally, nationally, and even internationally. In October 2013, we opened the doors of IBB Cyclery & Multisport (IBB = Independent Bike Builder).
|Back in Colorado basement - 2011|
My first-ever road bike was a 2003 Specialized Allez Comp Cro-Moly (Steel) bike with Shimano Ultegra 9-speed and Profile Design clip-on aerobars. It was simple -- traditional steel frame, standard external routing of cables/housing, and standard BSA threaded bottom bracket.
Bikes have REALLY CHANGED over the years, as technology has evolved to make them faster, stiffer, lighter, more convenient, better fitting, and more comfortable. Current bike technology features a plethora of bottom bracket standards, 13-speed rear hubs, internally routed cables and hoses, electronic shifting, power meters, tubeless wheels, hidden aero brakes, firmware updates, wireless shifting, and more! Using Triathlon / TT bikes as an example, Building/maintaining/fitting the latest generation of "super-bikes" requires new tools, new tricks, outside-the-box thinking, attention to detail, and lots of experience.

My wife Charity and I begin with a Power-Based Dynamic Fitting protocol to find the rider's ideal "fit coordinates". In the case of a new bike purchase, we then reverse engineer (or "Spec") the complete bike solution to figure out what frame geometry and size is ideal for them to begin with, and then build or set up the new bike to perfectly match the rider's fit coordinates. In the case of adjusting a rider's existing bike(s), we make adjustments to match (or come as close as possible) to their established fit coordinates. An individual's fit coordinates will be specific to the type of bike they are riding. For example, Triathlon Bike fit coordinates are VERY different from MTB Fit coordinates.

1. FIT reveals the crucial Fit Coordinates for the rider.
2. SPEC the bike from head to toe including frame size/geometry, bar/stem, saddle, crank length, gearing, color, etc.
3. Lastly, BUILD or set the bike up to match the rider's fit coordinates from step 1.

And that's our passion: Dealing with the not-so-easy-or-fun part of bikes so that you can spend more time and energy enjoying actually RIDING your Bike!
|Bob's Custom-Spec'd Orbea Orca|
Our customers: Cyclists and triathletes wanting a properly sized and spec'd, quality built, entry-level-to-high-end bicycle. Have a limited budget? By custom spec'ing the components, we can help you maximize the buying-power of your budget in terms of performance. We want to get you the most speed, comfort, and durability out of the hard-earned money you spend. The truth is that some upgrades are simply not worth the increased cost while other upgrades are worth every penny.
Just a taste of what we've built up over the years………..
