At Velogear, we're all about bikes. We love riding them, reading about them and fixing them. And when bikes are on TV, we love watching them. We want to make it easy for you to indulge your love of cycling, too. We stock cycling clothing from the best brands in the sport, along with books, DVDs, parts, accessories and more. We want to be your one-stop shop for all things cycling!
The term "boneshaker" was coined in the mid-1800s after the ride quality of the bike of the day — an iron-framed, wooden-wheeled contraption that couldn't have been much fun to ride. (Though it must have had some sort of appeal, considering where we are today.)
Those who cherish a rougher ride today are the fully-rigid crowd: No suspension in the front or the back. It's a breed apart that willingly flings its bikes into the rough stuff without any built-in relief. Are you rough enough to be called a Boneshaker?
