Why Shop Here?

 

You may ask the question. Why buy from a professional bicycle store, and not at the local department store? There are many really good reasons, and I’ll try to cover our benefits the best that I can. We are locally owned, therefore the dollars we take in, end up supporting things like our annual bicycle “Safety Rodeo” for the kids. We also donate to local charities, provide bikes, and accessories to the fund drives, and help support the YMCA, Boys Club/Girls Club, belong to the local Chamber of Commerce, and may be supporting your own friends and neighbors. Having been in business since 1979, under the same family of owner, and managers, we feel we have the expertise to provide you with the very best in bicycles, accessories, and service available today.

Here are some of the other reasons our store is the best place to shop.

 

We carry the best bikes in the industry.

We offer a wide selection of bicycles for all ages of people and uses. Expert assistance is what makes The Bike Shack the only place you need to visit. When you need a bike that's right for you, our experienced staff will listen to you and help you choose exactly the right one.

Comfort and safety is what makes our bikes better.

Bicycles come in different sizes. And they're very adjustable. We use Body Scanning to find the right frame size for you and then dial in the fit by positioning the seat and handlebars, brake levers and shifters as required. This ensures comfort and that you're in complete control of your bike for safety. There are many variables, too: If you need a softer saddle, we'll put one on. If you prefer to sit more upright, we can accommodate you. Our goal is to make your new bike as comfortable to ride and as easy to pedal as possible. We have over 30 years of experience in fitting bikes to riders and we'll get yours fitting so good it disappears beneath you.

All our new bikes are assembled by professional bicycle mechanics.

When it comes to safety, having your bike assemble by our pro's is a must. Our service manager has over twenty years of assembling and servicing our customers bikes, and he always makes sure it's right, before you get to take it home. This is required by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission and we pride ourselves in meeting the highest standards. Service after the sale is where we do it best. For over thiry years, The Bike Shack has been the popular choice for our local riders.

We allow test rides, the best way to select a new bicycle.

How do you know if that new bike is the right ride for you? We take your body measurements using Body Scanning. This ensures that step number two, the test ride, will be of value to you because of proper fitting. The test ride is the best test, and the truest way to judge a bike, is by taking a spin on it. Roll down the street and shift through the gears. Feel how the frame fits your legs and arms. Try the brakes. Stand up and climb. Coast a bit. Does the bike feel comfortable, easy to pedal, smooth? Is it quiet? Do you like the ride? Make some mental notes and return to our shop to try some others. We're happy to let you compare bikes and get a feel so you find the perfect machine.

Free cycling advice when you need it.

We're staffed by knowledgeable and enthusiastic cyclists who love to share their expertise. Need to learn how to shift, fix a flat, carry gear, pump your tires? Want to find the best places to ride or friends to pedal with? Just ask, and we'll be more than happy to help. Yes, we are a Park Tool mechanics training center. Ask for more info if this is something you think would be interesting.

Every new bike comes with a free tune-up.

Bicycles are machines that require maintenance. One of the most important services is the first tune-up, which is due after you've ridden your new bike for a few weeks. During this time, cables might stretch, spokes may loosen and adjustments could change. For your new bike to ride right and last as long as possible, we provide a free tune-up where we thoroughly check all systems (a $30 to $60 value, depending upon the work required).

All of our bikes are guaranteed.

We stand behind every bike we sell. If something goes wrong, bring it in and we'll be happy to deal with it. In the rare event of a breakdown, there's also a manufacturer's warranty protecting your purchase. Because we use Body Scanning, and are a CustomFit Bicycle Center, we guarantee the fit of all bicycles we sell.

Our bikes offer the highest quality, longest life and best resale value.

We don't just stock any bicycles. Because we stand behind our products, we find and carry only the finest brands and models. Name brands like Giant, Raleigh,  and Haro, which means that you get a great bike that will last and last with nothing more than regular care and maintenance. And, should you decide to upgrade, you'll be able to sell the bike for a good price.

We carry all the best accessories to go with your new bike.

Cycling's most fun when you have the right gear to go along with that new bike. Our store is loaded with top-quality accessories and equipment such as helmets, locks, pumps, hydration systems, computers, and plenty of other goodies designed to help you enjoy riding. And, we're happy to advise which choices are right for you.

 

We make owning easy, with 90 days of zero interest, Free Lay-a-way, and we accept major credit cards.
