Whether you’re interested in road, trail, commuting, or triathlon, we have knowledgeable staff eager to help. Not sure what you’re looking for?

We have highly skilled, professional mechanics on our team to help you keep your bike in top shape. From safety checks to full overhauls to boxing bikes for shipping, there’s no challenge too great. Don’t know what your bike needs? Consults are always free.

We don’t just provide equipment and extras—we offer camaraderie as well. As local cyclists, we’re the best source to learn about great rides, new equipment, friends to pedal with, competitive events, charity rides and everything else that will make cycling the most fun for you.

Evan Harmon - General Manager

Evan has worked at bike shops and ridden trails all over the west coast - from Montana to Colorado to Oregon. Evan started riding as a kid. His dad wrote the trail guidebook for Helena and Bozeman in the early 90s. Evan tagged along exploring with his dad. Imagine the 90s version of this video.

James Farrugia - Sales

James grew up in Libertyville, IL, where he developed a strong passion for riding and working on bikes. He was just 14 years old when got his start working at George Garner Cyclery. Originally a BMX punk, over the past decade James has learned to appreciate the diversity of cycling. You can find him going full roadie as he guides for The Cycling House in the off-season, or rocking baggies in the summer when he races Enduro. 


Evan Ruddell

Evan Ruddell - Grumpy Master Technician

Hailing all the way from Philadelphia, PA is everyone's favorite salty and finely seasoned bike mechanic. With over 13 years of shop experience, Evan is our veteran mechanic with an impressive wealth of knowledge on all things two-wheeled. Make sure to ask him about his favorite Philly bike parts slang, or that one time he hiked the PCT, CDT, and AT all in one year. (But it would be wise to feed him or give him a beer first.)

Shane Balgaard

Shane Balgaard - Bike Whisperer/Mechanic

Shane grew up racing BMX around Wisconsin. He and his sister both won the state BMX championship the same year. On his 16th Birthday, he received the best present he could have ever asked for -- a job at his Uncle’s bike shop in Rhinelander, Wisconsin.  

"What I enjoy most is talking with customers about our experiences riding (or in any sport, really) and how we generally end up at the same destination: pure happiness. Riding bikes and getting to know others that share the same hobbies and lifestyle has been great for me."

Keenan has an answer for you. His love of bikes is second only to his love of craft beer and he is super knowledgeable about both. Come down and pick his brain sometime, you'll leave with a better understanding of your bike and where to find the best Hazy IPA.
