Aside from my experience in my youth, I have american cyclery to thank for my cycling fanaticism. I started on a hybrid and worked my way up to a full on road bike. I started out thinking I was gonna do a few miles on the weekends to get in shape, and now I'm doing 85 miles rides on the weekends after a week of commuting by bike. Each of the employees has a high level of expertise and knowledge, and they are very friendly right when you walk through the door. I've bought myself two bikes for myself since I became a customer, and bikes for my family - and I will buy my bikes from this expert staff for life. Viva american cyclery!
