RSD Bikes has only been up and running since 2012, but our pedigree stretches back about 25 years, when we first started riding hardtail mountain bikes, and were hooked from day one.
We’re based in Toronto, Canada, where we design bikes that we want to ride. We ride them mostly in Ontario and the coastal mountains of BC.
Like most of you, we believe that the correct number of bikes to own is (n+1), but we try to develop bikes that are versatile enough to be ridden anywhere. We’re generally not down with labels, for bikes or for riders, and because we’re small, we can take instant feedback and apply it to the design process.
We’re sure that you’ll be as stoked to ride our bikes as we are. Keep the Rubber Side Down!
