America's Neighborhood Bicycle ShopTM
Years ago, there were many neighborhood bicycle shops across America.
They were typically staffed by the owner, with perhaps 1 or 2 trusted
In addition to selling bikes, they provided quality repair service,
ordered special items which they didn't stock,
and always gave good, unbiased advice.
Sadly, many neighborhood bicycle shops have been replaced by much larger
These big stores offer impressive selections of bicycles,
but sometimes don't seem interested in helping you with finding
replacement parts or ordering special items.
If you are fortunate enough to have a good neighborhood bike shop
in your area,
we recommend that you continue to patronize it.
If you don't have one,
then think of us as your neighborhood shop,
even if you're miles away from us.
We're always happy to order special items for you,
although we do require deposits (payable by PayPal or credit card) in most cases.
If you're looking for some hard to find item, give us a call at
and we will see if we can find it in our database.
Please note that there are some items that our dealer contracts
do not allow us to sell by mail.
