Welcome to the most fun you've ever had on two wheels: our most popular "e-bike", the Turbo Como 3.0 Low Entry. With a comfortable geometry that makes getting on and off the bike and putting a foot down super easy, a sleek and stylish design, and Specialized's exclusive, award-winning Turbo technology, you'll get a smooth, powerful boost that'll make you feel like a kid again... if you were Superman's kid, that is. Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.2 E motor, the Turbo Como has power to spare for any ride. The 1.2 E uses the same hardware as Specialized's 1.2 motor, but it features a tune that prioritizes efficiency over maximum torque, power & speed. What you get is the most affordable Turbo with 20MPH max assist, near-silent operating design and a Custom Rx Street Tune. The more power you put out, the more power the motor puts out! The belt driven motor is also smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations. For the Como 3.0, Specialized developed a custom U1-460 battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame and is lockable & easily removable for simplified charging. In other words, there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new café on the other side of the city. Exact range depends on your weight, load carried, aerodynamics, terrain, number of stops/starts and more. The new Turbo Connect Display (TCD) is the best way to view data on your Turbo. It not only displays basic ride metrics (speed, cadence, power, battery level, and time), but it also lets you toggle between modes. Its design, meanwhile, is rugged and clean. As for the latest version of the Mission Control App, you'll find that it now has more features and is even more intuitive to use. It lets you custom-tune nearly every aspect of the bike with ease, monitor your power usage, control your range, perform basic system diagnoses, and record/upload rides. All Turbo Comos feature smooth and agile 650B (or "27.5") wheels paired with cushy 2.3-inch tires, so it can roll over most cracks, bumps & potholes with ease to ensure that nothing distracts from a great ride. And to top off all of these innovative features, you'll find Shimano 9-speed components, powerful hydraulic disc brakes, racks, fenders, and bright LED lights at the front and rear of the bike. - The custom E5 Low-Entry aluminum frame on the Como cleanly houses the battery and motor, while still keeping the lightweight properties that E5 is known for. Pair this with our Ground Control Geometry, and you have a durable and lightweight bike that'll keep you rolling in style. - The Turbo Como's Specialized 1.2 E motor emphasizes efficiency and range. It's also fully integrated with the frame and has been custom-tuned for city riding. It intuitively reacts to the force of your pedaling, so the harder you pedal, the more power it delivers. And with an internal belt drive design, it does this without added vibration for the smoothest and most silent ride possible. - A custom 460 Wh battery is fully integrated with the frame, removable for easy charging and lockable for added security. It communicates with the display and has multiple modes to maximize the overall efficiency and range. For range estimates based upon a variety of variables, please refer to the Turbo Range Calculator.
The Specialized Turbo Como 2.0 has one goal and one goal only—to inspire you to get out, get moving and have some fun along the way. It achieves this with new Turbo technology that boosts your own power with each pedal stroke so you're guaranteed to have a wide smile on every ride. Starting at the completely redesigned & integrated Specialized 1.2 motor with a top speed of 20mph, the Como 2.0 proves itself as the easiest, most comfortable urban bike you've ever slipped into. The new, proprietary Rx Street Tune takes the power of a belt-driven motor that's smooth, silent & free of annoying vibrations, and makes it optimized for riding in an urban environment by reacting seamlessly to any force you apply to the pedals. A custom Specialized U1-460 battery integrates neatly into the frame for superior balance and aesthetics, plus it's lockable and easily removable for simplified charging. With this battery, the Turbo Como delivers some extra "oomph" to accompany you on your cruise down the bike path, a trip to the grocery store or even to that new café on the other side of town. Specialized has also developed a custom 2.2-inch computer with the German powerhouse, BLOKS. With this touchscreen smart computer, you're able to connect via Bluetooth to the Mission Control App for full control of the Turbo technology. This app allows you to tune the motor to your personal preferences. 650B (aka 27.5") wheels are paired with 2.3-inch tires, so your new Como can roll over most cracks, bumps & potholes with ease to ensure that nothing blocks your path to a good time. For the build, you'll find everything you need to get out and enjoy the sunshine, comfortably and worry free - including powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, reliable 9-speed Shimano shifting, and a wide, comfortable "Cup" saddle. Now available for sale AND for rent at Ken's - try one today!
When we set out to revamp our Turbo line, we knew that we needed to design a bike that best meets your needs. With our lives getting more hectic with each passing day, finding the tiny pockets of time savings can have a huge impact, and the Turbo Vado 5.0 truly embodies this concept. It utilizes our most advanced pedal-assist technologies, a high-quality component spec, and a suspension fork to take the edge out of those pesky potholes. No matter where you're going, you'll get there faster and in style with the Turbo Vado 5.0. Beginning with the integrated Specialized 1.3 motor, it has a higher max torque, max watts, and better heat management and efficiency than its predecessors. It's the most advanced motor ever found on an urban e-bike. Of course, it still features a silent operating design with our Custom Rx Street Tune that takes the output and makes it the most usable for an urban environment. Think of it this way: The more power you put out, the more power the motor puts out, and this makes accelerations from a standstill both quick and efficient. The belt driven motor is also smooth, silent, and free of annoying vibrations. And the max speed? 28mph. For the Vado 5.0, we developed a custom 600 Wh battery that seamlessly integrates into the frame, is lockable, and easily removable for simplified charging. In other words, there's plenty of juice to take you to and from work, a trip to the grocery store, or even to that new café on the other side of the city. If you wish to see exactly how far you can go on a charge, have a look at our Turbo Range Calculator for more exact estimates. The new wired Turbo Connect Display (TCD-w) is the best way to view data on your Turbo. It not only displays important ride metrics (speed, cadence, rider power, distance, battery level, time, etc.), it also allows you to connect the latest version of the Mission Control App for an enhanced Turbo experience. With our free app for iOS and Android phones, you easily customize motor parameters, control your range, record/upload rides, and perform basic system diagnosis. And to top off all of the innovative features, we chose a high-end spec with Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed components, four-piston hydraulic disc brakes, an SR SunTour fork with 50mm of travel, integrated front/rear lights, and mounts for fenders and racks. It's ready to take on the town in effortless style. - The Turbo Vado features a lightweight alloy frame that’s been designed with our Fitness/Transportation Geometry. - The Turbo Vado’s Specialized 1.3 motor with Rx Street Tune is the most powerful and efficient motor ever to be found on an urban e-bike.

Every year bikes get lighter, skinnier, and more efficient - giving you less, less and less. Specialized took a different approach with the Fuse - and its sister, the Ruze - to give you MORE: More traction, more flotation, and more fun. Rolling on 27.5 x 3.0 tires, the Ruze Expert delivers unprecedented traction and stability so you can shred the loosest, rockiest, most off-camber trails you can find. (Hint: this bike also excels in deep, loose, round gravel of river-bottom trails where every other mtn bike fails.) The strong yet light M4 alloy frame features Specialized's exclusive Diamond Stay technology to accommodate plus-sized wheels & tires while maintaining the short chainstays that keep a bike playful and fun. Specs are dialed with a Manitou Magnum fork, WTB Scraper i45 wheels, and a 1x10-speed drivetrain. There's even a dropper post for maximum control when things get rowdy. Get on a Ruze and find out what you've been missing. Like every bike in our rental fleet, this Ruze Expert has been meticulously maintained by Ken's professional mechanics - the idea was to give every renter such a great ride, they'd want to buy one! Now that we can't rent bikes, and the whole industry is running out of affordable mtn bikes for sale, we've decided to offer some from our rental fleet, for sale. Grab one before they're gone!
Burley's "Cub" trailer is designed specifically for rental use. The double-walled, molded plastic bottom is exceptionally durable, while a water resistant cover and removable seat pad make it secure comfortable for your most precious cargo. The Cub fits one or two children, up to 100 lbs total; helmets for each passenger are included in the rental fee (same as the fee for a standard city bike, though the trailer costs much more) and their use is required by state law.
With six wins at Paris-Roubaix, our Roubaix has proven that Smoother is Faster. Until this moment, however, smooth has admittedly come with some compromises. But not anymore. The all-new Roubaix Pro now delivers compliance without compromise by introducing a radical new Future Shock 2.0 that gives you more control and damping options, a new Pavé seatpost that creates our most balanced Roubaix to date, aerodynamics that equal the Tarmac, and a Rider-First Engineered frame that’s shed some serious weight. Is it still comfortable? Sure, but don’t call it a comfort bike, because performance was behind every engineering decision we made. This is the new Roubaix. - The new frame delivers compliance without compromise via the perfect balance of aerodynamics, light overall weight, compliance, and Rider-First Engineering. With tube shapes that were born in our FreeFoil Shape Library and validated in the Win Tunnel, the new Roubaix’s as aero as the Tarmac SL6. Meanwhile, to ensure the weight and ride quality, we turned to a Rider-First Engineered design to deliver optimal stiffness and compliance across all sizes, from 44 to 64cm. Of course, the frame has shed some serious weight in the process. And to prep you for your own Hell of the North, we’ve made room for 33mm tires. - To go along with the new frame, we’ve also developed a totally-new S-Works Pavé seatpost. Not only is it the first compliant seatpost that’s ALSO aerodynamic, it does so without any additional weight or finicky contraptions. Starting with the same D-shape design found on the Tarmac, we took its compliance a step further by building additional flex into the upper and developing a new drop-clamp design in the frame. This provides plenty of compliance, while staying perfectly balanced with the front-end, so you get a smooth, balanced ride no matter how rough the road. - The Future Shock 2.0 is the result of our pro riders’ demands for the cobbles of Roubaix. It’s smoother, faster, and gives you more control via a knob atop the stem. This knob adjusts compression from fully-open to stiff, while hydraulically-damped internals control rebound. Add it up, and this latest version will reduce fatigue and increase your speed, no matter the terrain. The new Smooth Boot, top cap, and Future Stem also enhance the aesthetic, so you get a clean transition from head tube to stem.
Want to see for yourself, what all the buzz is about? We thought so. So Ken's invested in 3 brand new Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29 (long travel) demo bikes you can rent at Ken's and take to your favorite trail. With new tube shapes, new suspension geo and a stunningly refined design, the new Stumpy is going to exceed all your expectations for how a trail bike should ride. And when you return, you can apply your "demo" fees (up to 2 days' worth) to purchase of a new Stumpjumper for yourself! - The all-new alloy Stumpjumper frame features M5 alloy front & rear triangles, an asymmetrical design and the latest 29 Trail Geometry, so it's just the right amount of both capable & comfortable - The FOX DPS Performance rear shock with Specialized's proprietary Rx Trail Tune ensures that no matter the wheel or frame size, your bike is dialed-in perfectly - A FOX 34 Rhythm fork handles suspension duties up front, with stiff stanchions and plenty of adjustability - The smooth, reliable dropper post - which should be required equipment on all trail bikes, says Ken - keeps the seat up for efficient pedaling, yet drops instantly to the optimum height for however crazy the terrain gets. Once you try one, you'll never go back!
Adams' Original Folder 1 Trail-A-Bike lets your child (~5-8 years old) pedal along with you and enjoy the ride. Rides that are much too far, or have too much traffic, for him or her to do alone are now safe & easy for the whole family! The Original Trail-a-Bike sports a steel frame and a 20-inch wheel so it's easy to pull &/or pedal. And it has a sturdy steel hitch that fits on most of Ken's adult sized rental bikes. The kid-size pedals, grips and seat allow Junior to ride in comfort and style, thinking he's steering the ship (but he's not; you are). It's the best invention for family cycling of the last 50 years (according to Ken).
The Section Aluminum is built for all-day rides and for riders who are in it for more than the scenery.
