    Bike Emporium’s able staff equips riders with bicycles and accessories from top brands and keeps gear running smoothly with repair and maintenance services.

  • Tour De Tavern
    It’s an average day on the streets of Old Town Scottsdale, where cars and pedestrians amble along the scenic sites. Suddenly, a crazy-looking contraption emerges from an intersection with six passengers on either side pedaling in the open air. This vehicle, which is inspired by cycling apparatuses Europe, is Tour De Tavern’s pride and joy. Guided by an experienced driver, the passengers glide along at speeds of up to 8 miles per hour and take in the sites around them to the tunes coming from a built-in sound system with an iPod hook up. In addition to daily tours, the business caters to bachelor parties and corporate team-building events.

  • Syncd-N
    "Unity in motion." That's the motto of SYNCD-N owners Howard and Dawn Lindsay, and it's not lip service?it's literal. That's because the husband-and-wife duo deal exclusively in tandem bicycles. "Riding a tandem bicycle requires a team to communicate thoroughly, to trust each other...and to lean on one another when one team member gets tired," they share on their website. This shines through in both their commitment to each other?which has been strengthened since they took up the sport?and to their customers, to whom they offer trial rides. The rides familiarize the customers with the skills necessary for navigating a bicycle together, from peddling in sync to leaning in the same direction in order to dodge puddles full of tears from lonely unicyclists.

  • Cactus Bike
    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.
