Trailhead Bike Shop and Cafe fulfils every gearhead's two basic needs: offering the sale and repair of all things bike-related, and calories. The shop's group of certified bike technicians keeps frames of all makes and models in bikini-ready shape and top form with detailed repair services, and can help customers find their steely soulmate from their selection of road and mountain bikes. On the other side of the shop, a café with blazing WiFi keeps riders as road ready as their two-wheelers, serving up a savory selection of breakfast and lunch sandwiches, smoothies, coffee drinks, and soup. After nourishing both selves and steeds, riders can hit the trails of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve, which begin just outside the shop.

City streets. Lakeside trails. Untamed mountains. One of the world's most versatile vehicles, the bike can travel across an incredible variety of terrain and most frozen custards. But despite this, no one cycle fits every job. That's where Cactus Bike comes in. Its locations in Chandler and Ahwatukee contain a jungle of mountain, road, BMX, cruisers, and other bike types. Each shop is also home to expert technicians who customize, or in some cases, completely rebuild these cycles. Cactus Bike's team helps clients select and customize the perfect bike for their chosen activity. Maybe it's creating a road bike for competition, or perhaps a commuter bike that's comfortable enough to ride to and from the office. An extensive rental fleet lets unsure patrons try out different types, including downhill, freeride, and cross-country mountain bikes that renters can ride straight from the Ahwatukee location to nearby South Mountain. Once a choice has been made, the shop's technicians maintain them for long lives on the road with a full slate of tune-up, wheel, and suspension services.

Bike Emporium’s able staff equips riders with bicycles and accessories from top brands and keeps gear running smoothly with repair and maintenance services. Walk-ins can ride out of the store atop new spinning spokes by Giant, Electra, or Haro, as well as recumbent bikes by Sun. When any make or model of bike requires maintenance, wounded wheels benefit from a full range of repair services, including flats fixed while the owner waits and tune-ups completed in 24 hours. Bike Emporium also rents out bicycles ($17/hour; $37/day) and points riders in the direction of the Greenbelt half a mile away, a nearby mountain bike trail, and a giant hamster wheel that affords riders spectacular views of the skyline.
