Why Buy From Us

We’re local: The only chain you’ll find here is on a bike. We’re family-owned and local. The owner lives two miles away and most days you’ll see him in the shop if he isn’t taking out the trash or picking up lunch for the staff. 

We’re not jerks: We can’t sugar-coat this one because bike shops have gotten a bad rap in the last decade or so. We’re not going to talk down to you or make you feel bad if you don’t know anything about bikes. That’s just silly. We love talking about bikes and we’re happy to teach you what you need to know to make a good choice. 

We won’t pressure you: We will not try to sell you “more bike” than you need. We’ll offer you options at different price points and help you understand the difference, but we will not try to talk you into a bike just because it costs more. We’ll help you find the bike that makes sense for you. 

Why does it matter where I buy my bike?

Every new bike purchase should be the beginning of a beautiful friendship… with your bike shop. At minimum, you’ll bring your bike in for routine maintenance. We can also offer advice, adjust your bike fit, and help you choose the right gear and accessories. The right bike shop will make your riding experience better, so choose a shop that treats you with respect and makes you feel good about coming back.

Grow-Up Program for Kids

For parents who want a high-quality, safe bike for their kids, but don’t want to buy a full-priced bike for every growth spurt. 

Here’s how it works:

  1. Buy any new kids’ bike at Johnny Velo Bikes.

  2. Bring it back within two years. 

  3. Pick out a new bike and we’ll credit you 50% of the purchase price of the first bike toward the new one. 

  4. Lather, rinse, repeat, until your little one isn’t so little. You can even use the program toward the purchase of their first adult bike.

Pick the Right Size

Worry-Free, Hassle-Free Maintenance Programs

We get it. You want your bike to work and you don’t want to stress about it. We created these optional packages to take the hassle out of bike maintenance and to keep the cost to you as low as possible.

RIDES Protection Plans

We partnered with this national bike and gear protection program because it’s a great value to our customers and it’s portable. Use it at any participating bike shop in the country. 

Whether you’re riding in town, you move out of state, or you take your bike on vacation, your RIDES package goes with you. This isn’t your average warranty plan. It includes rider accident coverage and most plans include an annual tune-up.
