Chris Kegel started at Wheel & Sprocket in 1973, two weeks after the bike shop opened. Back then, he was a bike mechanic, but over the past four decades, as the bike shop grew to multiple locations, Chris worked his way up. Today, he's Wheel & Sprocket's CEO, and keeps the company true to its founding goal: making bike rides more fun.
Wheel & Sprocket does that not only by selling bikes in more than 18 categories, but also by taking care of them. Its mechanics can repair any bike they sell, and they also offer comfort-enhancing bike fittings. Every week, they also highlight cycling's social aspect by hosting group bike rides, which unlike the name implies, doesn't involve everyone piling onto one bicycle.
The staff members at Cyclesmith use knowledge gleaned from their own cycling lives and participation in local races to furnish athletes with the necessities for off- or on-road excursions, from Trek and Haro BMX bikes to apparel and accessories from Mavic and Bontrager. Armed with the Fit Kit bicycle-fitting system, technicians tailor new rides to individual frames, providing a ride as custom and smooth as a RoboCop's uniform. Once techs have helped patrons to select fresh cycles from their top-shelf assortment, customers can apply credit from trading in old bikes toward their purchase. The shop also offers repair services to keep cycles running smoothly.
In 1987, Brian McInerny was careening around Italy in a four-wheel, multipassenger Surrey cycle. An avid cyclist, he fell in love with this quirky contraption that he'd never seen in the United States and he immediately sought out the manufacturer and purchased a crate of them. Wheel Fun Rentals traces its origin to this very moment, as Brian changed his surrey-distribution company into a rental and tour company that spans the nation. In spite of a general suspicion of unicycles and their ulterior motives, the company's corporate philosophy espouses "Supporting active healthy lifestyles for our customers and maintaining a healthy environment for all." Wheel Fun's fleet of rentals now includes bicycles, multipassenger Surreys, scooters, surfboards, and paddle-based watercraft. They also promote green communities by offering free rentals to Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Coast In Bikes can sell you a new bike, repair the one you have, or rent you a bike for the afternoon. In fact, the staff can even wash the bike you rode in on, thanks to the shop's bike shower. Knowledgeable staffers can guide you through an inventory of commuter, cargo, and touring bikes from brands like Surly and Rocky Mountain. If you're not looking to buy, the rental fleet includes adult, children's and tandem bikes. Technicians are on-hand for tune-ups and repairs, and for those who know their way around a spoked wheel, Coast In Bikes features a DIY workbench.
