About Us

It’s a fine thing to talk about fine things. It’s quite another to use them every day. At Above Category, we carry a very specific range of superlative products, with which we have first-hand, intimate, and extensive knowledge. We push these products to their limits. Whether it’s a pair of hand-built Zipp Wheels, or helping test the brand new Q36.5 clothing line hailing from Northern Italy, we are out on our bikes using it. This is no museum. It’s a family of fanatics obsessing about bicycles, cycling clothing, wheelsets, and componentry.

Our loyalty to the products we believe in has led to deep relationships with their creators. This personal connection with the people at Baum, Mosaic, Pegoretti, Pinarello, Argonaut, Q36.5, Assos, Campagnolo, Zipp and Lightweight Wheels, allows an unparalleled level of insight and service. We’ve welcomed craftsmen and CEO’s to the shop. We’ve also gone to visit them across the U.S., and in Switzerland, Germany, and Italy.

Here in Sausalito, CA, we’ve brought the best people we know and the best cycling equipment in the world to our favorite place on earth. Come join us for a ride.
