The difference between buying a bike at a department store versus buying one at a specialty store is the staff members. Because they are well versed about riding mechanics and bike brands, they’re able to pair clients with ergonomic bikes suited to their intended use. The staff of Cycle Sport Concepts guides customers through the industrial show room’s rows of bikes, explaining which models are best suited for taking pleasure rides, racing, or for testing the speed of light by drag racing lampposts. Staff also put this knowledge to use when fixing bikes, usually repairing and returning rides within 24 hours.
The catalyst for many on- and off-road excursions, Chatt Town Scooters puts drivers in motion with new scooters, used motorcycles, and by-the-hour vehicle rentals. UTVs prowl the dirt and jagged terrain in search of adventure, and scooters zip around town, veering into tight alleyways and hugging the turns of tiny drive-thrus. Parts, installations, and upgrades keep vehicles running smoothly, and the shop’s fashionable protective gear does the same for drivers.
