At Top Gear Bicycle Shop’s two locations, a team of master technicians tends to road and mountain bikes while a staff of avid cyclists outfits shoppers with appropriate gear for their riding surface of choice. Trek, Look, and Felt bikes stand out among the shop’s collection, which includes mountain, cyclocross, and pro-level road bikes.
The friendly experts at Willi's Ski and Snowboard Shop sling the latest in contemporary snow-sport products and maintain slope-traversing gear, earning themselves a Gold Medal Award from Ski magazine. Boot technicians help guests hunt down the precise fit for their boots, and maintenance wizards use top-notch Wintersteiger tuning machines to ensure that skis and snowboards retain their integrity during outings or unexpected ice ages.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
At SayLé Service we are focused on providing a legendary expierence to our clients. Our presentation of Park Tool School limits class size to only six students per session; allowing for a more personalized syllabus and more one on one instruction.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
At Saylé we believe that knowledge is power, knowing how to keep your bicycle running smoothly creates a more confident and capable rider. From a minor flat tire to a broken chain, having the knowledge of how to fix these mishaps can inspire you to expand your cycling adventure!
What do you love most about your job?
I love sharing my passion for all things Bicycle with whom ever I can. This includes educating folks from the basic skills of a flat fix to the more advanced mechanical techniques like hydraulic brake bleeding.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
When a customer told me with tears in her eyes that her bicycle had "changed her life" -a custom bike that I helped design and build for her.
Biketek welcomes all cyclists for supplies, repairs, and tune-ups, whether they ride recreationally or compete in triathlons. In addition to road, triathlon, mountain, single-speed, and hybrid bikes from Felt, Jamis, and Raleigh, the shop stocks a sizeable collection of gear from Giro, Sidi, Topeak, and Shimano. GU and Hammer Nutrition products, meanwhile, give riders the power necessary to win races and corral herds of stampeding tricycles. For six months after they purchase a new bicycle, buyers can come back to the shop for free maintenance and fit adjustments.
On the upkeep side of Biketek’s coin, technicians repair and maintain rides with tune-ups, part installations, and other services. They also fit bikes to riders with Body Scanning CRM technology, which uses software and noninvasive laser-pointer body measurements to determine the ideal saddle height, angle, and fore-aft position, as well as handlebar height and rotation. Although everyone can purchase a fitting session, Biketek offers one free to anyone buying a new road, triathlon, or cyclocross bike.
