When Hungarian road cyclist Frank Barvik immigrated to America in the late 1950s, he laid the foundation for his American dream by opening his own bike shop. Inspired by their patriarch’s love of bicycles, his descendants opened up a bike shop of their own in 1984. Adventure Cycling still welcomes cyclists today, with a carousel display near the entrance inviting customers to scrutinize new models of Orbea, Yeti, and Specialized bicycles. Stockpiles of cycling shoes, helmets, air pumps, and other accessories line the vivid red and blue walls, competing for attention with posters, vintage photographs, and the childhood height chart of Greg LeMond. The shop’s in-house bike mechanics repair and replace worn-out parts, getting wheels ready for guided rides on Saturday mornings and Monday evenings.

LoDo Spokes owner Justin Spencer could likely tell you anything you want to know about bicycles. He's spent well over 15 years in the cycling industry and encountered all forms of the pedal-driven vehicle, even the kind Ben-Hur and Messala used in their famous bicycle race. But he won't try to sell you a new bike. Instead, he wants his customers to be happy with their current rides.

A look inside LoDo Spokes' brick storefront is like a glance into Mr. Spencer's bike-filled mind. In this space, Mr. Spencer and his team true wheels, change brake pads, and install new cables for brakes and gears. In most cases, they can tune up bikes the same day. In addition to possessing a dearth of bike knowledge, Mr. Spencer's and the crew are well versed in tuning up skis and snowboards, ensuring that all equipment is finely tune and ready to tackle the freshest powder of any season.

As soon as visitors step into The ReCyclery Bike Cafe, the café's commitment to recycling becomes evident. Partners Justin and Brian envisioned the shop as a place where perfectly good—and often pristine—used bike parts would be restored, repurposed, or rebuilt for use in repairing and constructing bikes. The entire process is meant to eliminate waste and reduce the environmental impact caused by rusty bike chains that would otherwise be discarded into park fountains. Justin and Brian then took this vision and expanded it, making sure the hand-built café tables and chairs, as well as the bar and the floor, were all crafted from recycled materials. Visitors can feel the welcoming sense of homeyness and creative purpose as they sip coffee, sample the pocket sandwiches and kolache assembled by chef Francis Rojas, or just relax with the free WiFi while waiting on a bike tune-up.

Each and every bike sold at CoCo Bikes is unique. That's because the staff there takes pride, not just in fitting each two-wheeled stallion to its rider, but also in customizing cosmetic details from personalized paint jobs to powder coating in a variety of flavors. Stocked with both new and used bikes and parts, the shop is capable of building and restoring a huge range of cycles, while the shop's mechanics perform on-site repairs and tune-ups to keep already-beloved two wheelers in ship shape.

A nonprofit full service bike shop, The Bike Depot employs pedal savvy pros that skillfully prepare two-wheeled transports for a season of safe street-glissading with an array of maintenance services. The standard tune-up rejuvenates bikes worn down from midnight 1,000-mile cheese runs to Wisconsin. After a proper hose-down, an expert tightens every bolt, trues wheels so they sport symmetrical spokes, and lubricates the chain and cables to ensure smooth sailing on cement seas. Additionally, barrel adjusters are reset to ensure easy shifting between gears when traversing treacherous terrain or being pursued by a supersonic land shark.
