Buying a mountain bike online is still a relatively new concept, especially among the big brands like Specialized, Trek, and Giant. But much to our surprise, we found 30 mountain bike brands, including Santa Cruz, Yeti, Niner, and Pivot, that are currently selling at least some of their bikes online to consumers. Here are the brands we found that sell their bikes by both dealers (offline) AND third party online retailers, ordered alphabetically, with info about where you can purchase these brands online.
Note 1: We aren’t including online-only brands in this round-up, but look for those in this direct-to-consumer MTB brands list.
Note 2: For certain products, we are including “affiliate links” and as such, Singletracks may receive a commission based on your purchase. However, we have not limited this list to include only those retailers with whom we have an affiliate arrangement.
The Banshee bike brand has been around for many years and many of their bikes, including the Legend DH rig, are indeed legendary. JensonUSA is currently selling four Banshee models, including the Spitfire, Darkside, Rune, and Phantom. And although these bikes are being offered at 25% off (or more) their suggested retail prices, don’t mistake these Banshee rigs for low end–expect to shell out over $3,000.

The venerable brand founded by none other than himself, mountain bike pioneer Joe Breezer, is proving itself to be a progressive brand by embracing online sellers like PerformanceBike.com. As with the other MTB brands they sell, PerformanceBike.com offers free shipping and assembly when you order online and have the bike shipped to one of their stores. Of course, you can also ship the bike to your home if you like.
