The AWOL Elite is the last word in urban commuting versatility. It features a heat-treated, custom-butted Cr-Mo steel frame and fork for confident and predictable handling; long-lasting, fully housed cable routing; plus mechanical disc brakes to provide ample stopping power. It also comes equipped with a front Pizza Rack—which folds down to the size of a pizza box—Tubus Vega rear rack, and fenders to make carrying extra cargo a breeze no matter the weather. With the AWOL Elite, there's no limit to where you'll be able to go.
The custom butted Cr-Mo steel frame provides plenty of stiffness, while still maintaining all-day compliance and comfort. Along with the predictable steering and confident handling of the Cr-Mo steel fork, the AWOL provides the perfect blend of versatility and performance.
The alloy, double-wall disc wheels can stand up to mile after mile of adventure, while the Specialized Trigger Sport Reflect tires' reflective stripe on the sidewall provides plenty of traction and visibility.
The forged alloy crankset with 46/34T front chainring combo is a rugged and reliable performer, and when coupled with the wide range of the Shimano Tiagra 11-34t rear cassette, it allows for easy pedaling over a wide array of conditions.
The Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power, regardless of the terrain or conditions.
Reflective graphics are strategically located on the bike in order to increase your visibility to other riders and motorists in low-light conditions.

We Aren’t Your Average Bike Shop
But make no mistake. We are a bike shop.
We sell the world’s best rides, from Specialized’s unparalleled racing sleds to some of the grittiest, take-no-prisoners Cyclocross and Mountain Crushers by Focus and Fuji. For you bike enthusiasts not wanting a podium finish, we have hybrid bikes made by both of these brands as well as and eye-catching, work-of-art commuter bikes by Biria. Add an extensive line of parts, accessories and a bike racer turned wrench turner and, yeah, you’ve got one heck of a bike shop.
But there’s more.
We know that cycling isn’t just a sport, it’s a lifestyle. A culture. That’s why we carry original cycling-themed artwork, glassware, handmade bike badges, jewelry and apparel to satisfy your thirst for all things two-wheeled. Need a gift for a bike-riding buddy? We’re your shop. And, for all the Femmes out there who’ve been frustrated at the lack of selection bike shops have for them (co-owner Rebecca was one of them!), fret no more. Just head on over to IBW.
