Youngblood Bicycles' staff of avid cyclists fine-tune two-wheeled steeds with expert service and outfit riders in gear from pro brands, including Bell, Hincapie, Giro, and more. Veteran mechanics can call upon their bike-whispering skills to fix flats ($17), provide tune-ups ($65), or prevent bicycles that operate too well from becoming self-aware. Helpful pedal-pushers can also employ their passion for cycling to capably guide buyers through any purchase. A stylish logo jersey ($90) and pair of bib shorts ($110) by Hincapie keep riders sleek, aerodynamic, and in compliance with modesty laws, and a protective Bell Influx helmet ($65) shields your thoughts from divebombing carrier pigeons.
Bike the Rabbit nestles snuggly on the Swamp Rabbit Trail—a 17.5-mile paved way that snakes along next to the Reedy River. From their outpost, they supply visitors with high quality bike rentals so that they can enjoy the lush flora and fauna of the serene greenway. Their arsenal of bikes includes touring bikes, kids bikes, and bikes with baby seats from brands such as Motobecane, Gravity, and Ozone. Their service department also offers comprehensive tune-ups, detailing, and replacement and repair of parts.
Recumbent bicycles release bodies from the strain of bending over handlebars by seating riders in an ergonomic, reclined position, cushioning the body on a larger area than traditional bike seats. U-Man Power outfits cyclists with a large fleet of two-wheeled and three-wheeled recumbents that take the strain off backs as they pedal. The shop's staff also repairs bicycles and stocks a wide variety of bike parts and accessories, such as helmets and T-shirts sized for both riders and their bikes. A lounge welcomes cyclists of all skill levels to chat, sip sports drinks, and nibble powerbars.
When students take a spin class at Any Body Fitness, they know they’re pedaling atop sleek, professional-grade cycles. That’s because the staff at Any Body Fitness contains more than just certified spin instructors; in fact, staffers’ primary task is to scout out and sell top-shelf cardio, strength, and aerobic equipment. The employees outfit everything from modest home gyms to sprawling commercial wellness centers with ellipticals, treadmills, and weightlifting benches. So, when they select the stationary bikes that instructors use to punch up spinners’ heart rates, they do so with a solid understanding of the industry. Personal trainers, nutritionists, and active-lifestyle mentors act as equally knowledgeable resources for clients seeking wellness help outside of spin class.
