If you were lucky enough to receive a bicycle as a gift when you were a kid, we don't have to tell you what a wonderful surprise it is to find that two-wheeler you were dreaming about beneath the tree. So, have you considered what a fantastic gift a bike makes for the other people in your family or a loved one or dear friend? Few things will make them happier or provide so much fun and so many benefits.
To help you pick the perfect bicycle, here's an overview of the basic types. And, please keep in mind that all our bikes are quality models from the major companies you trust. They all come expertly assembled (at no extra charge), are fully guaranteed and we're happy to hold them to keep your best gift a secret until the big day.
We have a super selection of bikes for children of all ages. For little tots just getting into riding, we have bikes with training wheels. And we have a variety of great-riding and stylish bicycles for boys and girls. All are fully adjustable for proper sizing, safety and growth spurts. And, they're all quality bikes built tough to hold up to your child's rough-and-tumble world and ready to be handed down when he outgrows it.
Holiday Hint: Children's bicycles are usually sized by wheel sizes. For example, some common sizes are 16-, 20- and 24-inch wheel. But, when fitting kids and to keep them safe, you must consider their height, leg length, plus their coordination and skill level. We're experts at this so please ask if you're unsure.
BMX bicycles are the perfect ticket to adventure for coordinated kids and teens. Even if you’re still not sure what a “fufanu to foot wedge” is, or an “opposite 360 look back,” at least you know your shredder loves to ride and can upgrade his trick machine. Stop by and we’ll ask you the questions and help you find the new ride that makes his day.
Holiday Hint: If you'd rather let them select their own bicycle gift, purchase a gift certificate and wrap it up inside a nice box, which we can provide. They'll never guess a bike is inside!
Thanks to a comfortable upright riding position, plush tires and seats, comfort and cruiser bikes are ideal for fun spins around the neighborhood, running errands, cruising through campus or riding to work. This versatility makes them great presents for anyone wishing they could fit a little more fun and fitness into their busy life.
Holiday Hint: We’ll gladly set up any gift bicycle for the new owner. Just swing by the shop and we’ll make all the adjustments for a truly custom fit and add any accessories they want, too!
Is that special someone looking for a fun and convenient way to commute or get some quality exercise while running errands around town? If so, consider giving them a commuter or hybrid bicycle. They sport comfortable and efficient upright riding positions, low gearing for the hills and easy-rolling wheels and tires. Plus, they are available at many price points and are designed to carry all their gear, too.
Holiday Hint: Consider us Santa's helpers. If you're unsure what bicycle is best, come in and let our elves help explain.
Thanks to their rugged frames, wheels and components, plus suspension, hill-topping gearing and amazing brakes, mountain bikes are perfect for thrills, adventure and exercise. From front-suspension speed machines to rock-gobbling full-suspension models, and from beginner to racer, we have off-roaders for every ride and rider.
Holiday Hint: Maybe your cyclist doesn’t need a new bike but an overhaul on the one they currently have. We offer a variety of different tune-up packages. And with a gift certificate, they can come in and select the work they want done.
Does the cyclist on your gift list find freedom in flying down the road? If so, we've got what they're hoping for whether they enjoy casual weekend outings, pedaling the ends of the earth or aspire to race in the pro peloton. All our nimble road lightweights are a thrill to ride and lovely to behold with cutting-edge frames, trick wheels and quality components.
Holiday Hint: When buying bikes as gifts consider picking up a few important accessories to go with it, such as a nice safe helmet or an easy-to-use mini-pump. That way they'll be ready to ride!
