Sugar Bottom Bikes


We just finished a unique T-shirt design for Sugar Bottom Bikes (inspired by their shop cat! 🐈😻)!! The grey half tones turned out AMAZING! 🙌🏼 Located just down the road in North Liberty, IA, we love working with this bike shop. They have some sweet embroidered beanies in the works too! Check out some other swag we have done for them! Thank you Sugar Bottom!

Went to and purchased my yesterday, the service and professionalism of this bike shop is one of the best services I have received in this area. I wish I could call out the other bike shop who wouldn’t even let me try one of their bikes. These guys are excellent! Friendly customer service, experts in their fields, oh did I say that they are all hot? 💋😀🤷🏻‍♀️. If you live in Johnson County please check this shop out, you will not regret it.

I was so excited to test out my new wheels from Sugar Bottom Bikes this afternoon that I wasn’t about to let a little wind get between me and the otherwise great day for a bike ride!

Anyone else brave the wind to enjoy the sunshine? ☀️🚴‍♀️

Saturday is the big day, Iowa’s largest gravel event .bike is taking place. You won’t find us at the shop today as we will be out there riding and volunteering at this great event.
If you need anything the shop will be back to regular hours on Sunday. Just please be patient with us if we are moving a little slow!


Stuff you need for .bike Pt. 4. Snacks Edition. For a legendary effort like the one you will need to put forth to complete core4, you will need a steady supply of quality snacks and an efficient way to carry them that allows for easy access. The yummier your snacks are and the easier to grab they are, the more you will eat and that’s super important!
We highly recommend a top tube mounted bag such as this Energy Caddy XL. For a longer ride like core4 we recommend starting with more solid food like bars or actual real food from your kitchen. From there you can move to gummy type snacks and you should save snacks such as gels for just the final couple hours of your ride. We like to load the top tube bag starting with the food we will eat last… so put those gels at the bottom, followed by the gummy chews, and then put that real food at the top so it’s the first thing you grab!
It’s also not a bad idea to have a drink mix such as sport drink mix in your bottle to intake even more calories and electrolytes. And last of all don’t forget about that emergency pickle juice to help ward off those pesky cramps!

.bike is only a week away and there’s most likely still some stuff you need! For this edition of “Stuff You Need for .bike” let’s talk about hydration.
We’ve all got water bottles and we’ve all got water bottle cages but did you know not all are created equal? We’re a big fan of BIG Bottles like these 30oz Polar Bottles paired with the tightest fitting cage in the industry, the Gorilla Cage. Don’t suffer a bottle-ejection, the roots at Sugar Bottom are no match for the Gorilla Cage!
Speaking of Singletrack, you’re gonna want a hydration pack so you can easily hydrate through the twisty turny trails without fumbling around with a bottle. We have a full line of hydration packs to choose from so you can drink while you shred! 💧 👌 👊.

It’s time for another round of “Stuff You NEED for .bike”. Above all else, you need the right tires for YOU, set at the correct tire pressure for YOU, and you need all the stuff to KEEP those tires at the right pressure for YOU! 😉. We think almost everyone will benefit from at least a 40mm tire, and few people will need anything wider than a 45mm tire. We think a semi slick tire with side k***s will do the trick, but if you are very unfamiliar with Singletrack then something with a little more grip is probably a good idea.
Most important, remember that your friend’s tire pressure is not necessarily the correct tire pressure for you. We recommend using the tire pressure calculator (link in below) to find the perfect pressure for you. Make sure to use a digital gauge when dialing in pressure, your floor pump is most likely not accurate enough.
Last but not least, keep those tires inflated by carrying a tubeless tire plug kit, at least one 25oz CO2, and a High Volume mini pump as a back up in case you use up all that CO2.
We are confident in saying we have the best selection of tires in the area, and it’s not too late to get that perfect tire mounted up! Come see us for more expert advice.

We’re starting a new series that will cover all the “things you need for core4,” and we’re gonna kick it off with the ultimate go big thing you need for core4, a new bike!!! As some of you know, just dropped a banger of a new version of the famous Stigmata gravel bike, and we’ve got the top of the line model in stock! This new Stigmata has everything you could ask for to get you through the rowdiest and roughest gravel events. 1X AXS Shifting and Dropper Post, Rudy Suspension Fork, 45mm tires with room for plenty bigger, and in frame storage to hold all that stuff you hope you never have to use 🤞. The geo has gotten a nice revamp with suspension correction, slacker geo, and longer reach paired with a shorter stem to completely eliminate toe lap.

In case you haven’t heard, Iowa City has a new Youth Mountain Bike Club and we are so stoked to be both a main sponsor and helping coach these awesome kids! After 6 weeks of practice this past weekend was our first race double header with races at Sugarbottom and Mount Trashmore. There were close to 100 kids and our team absolutely crushed it with big wins both days and podiums in every category! Huge smiles were everywhere! It is safe to say coaching and watching the next generation race is one of the most rewarding things we’ve ever experienced. The club’s next race is this weekend in Decorah, stay tuned!

Shop manager recently had a killer ride down at the third running of .bike in Bentonville, AR. RO3 is a gravel event featuring a 100 mile route option with gravel, tarmac, and singletrack (over 20 miles of super fun trails with millions of tire eating rocks 😅.)
After two previous attempts at the race botched by flats and mechanicals Nate finally got his setup and strategy fully dialed in and with some great weather and good luck netted an amazing 5th Place among national champions, international Instagram influencers, and local bad@sses at this years event.

We had a blast this weekend participating in the event in the beautiful driftless region of Northeast Iowa. The views are amazing and the climbs are like nothing you’ve seen in our part of the state. We had three team riders make it in the top 10 of the 100 mile distance as well as two employees that achieved the coveted sub-8 hour century and earned themselves a brand on the branding board! If you weren’t there we highly recommend checking it out next year! There is also a 30 mile and 60 mile distance for those of you that have a little more sense! 🤣

Crate things on the horizon for SRAM! What’s in the boooox?! Silly sentences aside, any guesses on what new SRAM product is dropping this Tuesday? All silly, lighthearted, or potentially accurate guesses welcome.

Smokey’s guess is a new wireless AXS heating pad. Her current wired version really limits potential napping areas.

Sadie’s guess is an update to SRAM’s long forgotten treat.0 delivery system. Her hopes are for a wireless treat-on-the-go solution.


Thanks to all of the 2023 The Lake Macbride Fat Tire Classic riders and sponsors, particularly Sugar Bottom Bikes generous donation, we raised over $14,250 this year!

It’s New Employee Bike Day! Our newest team members Charlie and Alex recently finished up their new bike dream builds just in time to hit the trails and gravel! After months of research, geeking out, planning, working, and saving, both of these guys just finished these crazy awesome builds. Look for Charlie and his new Santa Cruz Tallboy at all the local trails and watch out for Alex speeding along on his Cannondale SupersixEvo SE at the local gravel events this year!

We have a handful in stock and the sale even counts towards special orders! This could be your chance to grab a previously out of reach Santa Cruz Shred Sled! Don’t wait on this one as this is a nationwide sale and many models will likely sell out or get lead times pushed out past the sale date.

We are still still smiling from the amazing experience we had hosting the First Annual North Liberty Bike Swap. It was so good to see so many smiling faces from folks we haven’t seen for a while and I think everyone that was there would agree it was a HUGE success! We couldn’t have pulled it off without our partners and help from all our vendors who spread the word for us and made for a huge turnout. We’re already planning for next year… expect the around the same time and place, but with more than double the amount of space to work with!

Bike Swap is LIVE! Get out here!


Trails are groomed go get it! Important thing to remember here is during the weekend warmup to stay off them once the temps get above ~30.

Woodpecker Singletrack has been groomed (fatbike and snowshoe only please!) and should set nice and firm with tonight’s cold temperatures. if we stay off during the weekend warmup, we might salvage extended ride time - let’s try!

We also set a pair of Classic XC tracks on Clear Creek path from the east end of Ashton to the west end of Woodpecker Singletrack so if that’s your jam, enjoy!
