Years before Dan and Maria founded DBC City Bike design, the duo resolved to reduce their dependence on gasoline. This resolution led the couple to Europe, where they hopped aboard Dutch bicycles that redefined how they thought about comfort on two-wheeled mounts. When Dan and Maria returned stateside, they began importing and selling these revolutionary rides through their new store, The Dutch Bicycle Company (The DBC). However, the hills, long-distance commutes, and stairs that define many American cities revealed many inconveniences in the unmodified Dutch model, so DBC added City Bike design to its name and they began building their custom Swifts, calibrated to handle the rigors of urban, bike-riding lifestyles. Today, the founding couple and their design staff build these bikes to order, modify existing rides, and provide tune-ups that, like prison-gang relay races, keep chains moving smoothly and swiftly.
The first Giant-brand-owned bike shop in America, Giant Cycling World peddles Giant bicycles and accessories as well as merchandise from vendors such as Shimano, Fox, Michelin, and more. The store’s full-service repair shop caters to the two-wheeled needs of competitive cyclists, recreational riders, and commuters, most of whom depend on their mountain bikes to reach their otherwise-inaccessible mountain jobs. A resident bike buff will conduct a thorough standard tune-up on customers’ banana-seated steeds, beginning with an inspection of all the bikes’ parts. Next, the 10-speed technician will adjust derailleurs, brakes (which may require bleeding for an additional fee), headsets, and bottom brackets before tightening every last nut and bolt. Marvel as newly trued wheels spin with the youthful vigor of a newborn trike and freshly lubricated cables and chains make formerly squeaky structures as quiet as a mouse-wearing moccasins. After completing a wipe-down of the frame and fork, Giant’s pleasant pedal pros will release the bicycle back into the wild to join its pack. Should your foot-powered street stallion require more extensive work, the tune-up also includes a 50% discount on the labor needed to install new parts and accessories.
