Cyclists to the last, the staff at Trek Bicycle Store take pride in the work they do, and they’re just as happy to sit and talk about the best bike routes in the city as they are to find the right part for a customer.

And they offer a customer-loyalty promise that includes price-protection guarantees, satisfaction guarantees, and the assurance that if your bike somehow grows a third wheel, it is due to radiation and we are not responsible.
The store’s shelves brim with accessories such as pedal wrenches, tool kits, and bike chains, all compatible with any of the shop’s bikes. Outfits are available for hardcore riders or bikes that want to dress up as bike riders for Halloween.
