By Philip Harwood While the double diamond frame design of a road bicycle has changed little over the past century, just about every other component of the modern bicycle has changed and progressed into the wildly futuristic machines we are accustomed to gawking over today. Long gone are the days of yore, when the first […]

By Philip Harwood “Model years are for bike companies that don’t have timeless product” is plastered on the walls here at Alchemy. To put it simply, perfection does not need to be constantly upgraded, even in the bicycle industry, where bottom bracket, wheel and brake standards change about as often as a cyclist changes a […]

“I’ve ridden lots of top-tier bikes,” says Burris, speaking for the group and echoing my own thoughts. “And I can say that, without a shadow of doubt, this one performs as good as, if not better than, any of ’em.” Full Article here.

Upgrades, upgrades, upgrades. Everyone likes upgrades for their bike, right? I certainly do, but I find that there are two kinds of upgrades: Those I want, and those I need. Since this story only lists 5 upgrades, I am going to focus on the essentials. Without further ado, here are the Top 5 Mountain Bike […]

A full-suspension mountain bike is really only as good as its suspension design. And although there are many different systems on the market today, the real advantage to owning an Alchemy is our exclusive Sine Suspension system. Sine was designed by one of the most experienced and knowledgeable engineers in the business: David Earle. Earle […]

The San Francisco Bay Area is known for a lot of things — the Golden Gate Bridge, Boudin’s sourdough bread — but world-class road riding isn’t one of them. Many people don’t know that the city and the surrounding area has nearly limitless riding. And all different types of riding, too: steep climbing, long miles, long […]

Written by Alchemy’s custom bike painter, Phil Harwood.   Do you have a road ride bucket list? If so, making a trip out to Colorado should be your top priority (if you’re not lucky enough to live here). Our state has some of the best road riding in the world, especially in the summer months […]

The introduction of our newest bike, the E-Ronin, marked a significant step for Alchemy Bikes. Not only did it represent our first foray into the e-bike world, but the E-Ronin is the very first American-made carbon gravel e-bike. This is a notable achievement in and of itself. But in typical Alchemy tradition, we pushed the […]

The coronavirus has been keeping us all at home a lot more lately. But nothing can stop us from dreaming about our next ride. If you’re like us, you’re ready to get down and dirty on some backcountry mountain bike trails as soon as possible. But you might be wondering where (and if) it’s safe […]

Sometimes, I think Alchemy is one of the most unconventional bike companies out there. Sure, we make bikes and then we ship them, which isn’t out of the ordinary. But we oftentimes follow a rather circuitous route from point A to point B.  We’re well known for custom manufacturing bicycles in Denver, Colorado on the […]

Moab, Moab, Moab…just saying those words gets the adrenaline flowing for mountain bikers. Moab has really become one of the major Meccas for mountain biking. Is it really only ten years ago that Moab was mostly just for riding Slickrock and a few other relatively sandy XC trails? Needless to say, that’s not the Moab […]

Before the advent of carbon fiber, there was a time that the only way to make a lightweight bicycle frame was by using titanium. Titanium is half the weight of steel, twice as strong as aluminum, very resistant to fatigue, and doesn’t corrode. There’s also distinctive ride quality to titanium that has created legions of […]

If you follow the road bike scene closely, you likely already know that most drop-bar talk these days isn’t really about road at all. Most of the focus today is on the gravel segment of road, where dirt and tarmac and everything in between are mixed together on each ride. With the growth of gravel, […]

Mountain bikes have made quite an evolution since the first knobby tires were ridden down Mt. Tam in the early 1970’s. From steel frames with no suspension and drum brakes to today’s long-travel carbon frames with electronic shifting and hydraulic disc brakes, the equipment and the sport has come a long way. With the design […]

When you think about mountain biking in Colorado, you’re probably visited with visions of remote, high-altitude trails crisscrossing the Continental Divide, sunny blue skies, and cool, thin air. And you wouldn’t be wrong. Deep in the Rockies lies some of the world’s best riding. But what most people don’t know is that within reach of […]

Riders (myself included), are in a constant quest to get in on the latest greatest equipment. I’m not sure if it’s FOMO, or just the hope that new equipment is going to make us faster […]

29er full suspension bikes are definitely not new to the market. They’ve been on the market since the early 2000s when Fisher Bikes came out with WTB-tire equipped suspension bike for shredding the hills around Mount Tam in Marin County, California. In fact, it’s been almost 3 years since the first 29er won a World […]

Gravel riding has surged in popularity the past few years. And with it, the subset of the road cycling has evolved quickly. To keep pace, gravel bikes are improving by leaps and bounds, new gravel-focused events are popping up daily, and the riding spots are near limitless. It’s the perfect storm, but in a good […]

After an annoying Colorado October, chock full of early-season cold, snow and ice, the sun returned for the last couple of weeks of the month. It created the perfect opportunity to test ride Alchemy’s new carbon fiber Ronin gravel bike.   As some one who has been riding both road and mountain bikes (and most […]

Alchemy Arktos frames have a relatively straight seat tube, so most dropper posts can inserted completely into the seat tube (Note: small size frames are more difficult that other size frames). As a result, determining the max travel dropper post you can use is MOSTLY affected by saddle height. Saddle height is typically measured from […]

There are few people that can match the raw speed and style of Alchemy racer Cody Kelley. From mani-Mondays to mid race-run Euro-tables, he is a spectacle every time he throws a leg over a bike. The life of a professional rider like Kelley may seem enviable, but just like every mountain bike race, there […]

Carbon fiber, carbon fiber, carbon fiber…These days, carbon fiber is ubiquitous. Everything from the wings of Boeing’s famed 787 Dreamliner to that iPhone case in your pocket utilize the material.
