Meet the Rainier!
In 2008, we thought the world needed a classic road bike that could fit wider tires and fenders. Well, we were way ahead of our time.

We've designed and spec'd our own light weight steel fork just for use with this bike, as well as a Rodriguez custom carbon fork available as an upgrade for $295. In addition to more tire options, the Rainier includes more standard braze-ons than other road bikes. Mount up to 3 water bottles, a rear rack, and fenders easily.

If you're like me, and you like a classic road bike with narrow tires in the summer, but also want the option to ride up to 32's with fenders in the rainy season, this is your bike! The Rainier, unlike so many other road bikes, gives you a wide range of rim and tire choices. lots of clearance for full fenders, fittings for a rear rack, and just about any gearing option you desire.

About the Rainier Classic

The Rainier Classic is our most popular model. It starts with the same hand built, custom Reynolds 725 frame as the Limited, but comes standard with Shimano 9sp STI shifters, and steps it up a notch with the Rainier custom carbon fork. The Classic is an extremely competitively priced, U.S. made, hand-built road bike. It rides comfortably with its lightweight steel frame, and will provide you decades of riding.

About the Rainier Sport

Your Choice....Shimano 105 or SRAM Apex

The Rainier Sport bumps up to your choice of Shimano 105 or SRAM Apex components. While most of our Rainier customers prefer a triple crank and 9-sp rear shifting, not all do. So now we are offering an 11-sp bike with a compact double crank. The Rodriguez Rainier custom sport bike is a great value for an American made ride! Look around and I think you'll see that our price on this bike stacks up against Shimano 105 or SRAM Apex equipped bikes made overseas.

Made in USA

"Why would anyone want fenders, wider tires, a rack, and a wide range of gears?" asks the bike designers for the other companies. Well, it just so happens that our customers want to ride their bikes no matter what mother nature throws at them, or what hills or mountains they encounter. They got tired of bikes that whimpered at the thought of a little rain and started cutting and customizing fenders (albeit pretty crudely) to fit their race bikes. They didn't want the weight of a full touring bike, or a heavier disc brake bike...they wanted a race bike...but with fenders, durable tires, more gearing options, and a rear rack, all a must for the weekend tourist or daily commuter (at least in Seattle).

Quick facts:
Don't let the fenders fool you! The Rodriguez Rainier is just as light and fast as any road bike on the market today. Of course, the Rainier is American made from high quality butted steel tubing. This provides the classic light-weight 'steel feel' the Rodriguez road bikes are famous for. We offer the Rainier with a selection of SRAM or Shimano equipment. Every Rainier comes with a pair of handbuilt wheels with a 3-year warranty. It's a comfortable, versatile bike that is perfect for a full day's ride and our fit is guaranteed.

Sizes: All of our bikes are offered in 20 production sizes . If you don't fit one of our production sizes, a custom size frame in any model is just $200 extra. Plus we are offering every bike in our line-up with any choice of 4 different paint options at no extra charge. Custom paint jobs or colors are also available. If that's not enough, we have 9 different decal options to choose from as well.

For those ready to tour the world, we're offering the Touring travel version (from $700 upgrade) that uses S&S couplings and fits in a 26" X 26" suitcase.
