Green Bay Cycles is fantastic! Larry, Sam and Pam are awesome. They are so knowledgeable, helpful, and passionate. They are really responsible for taking my experience with cycling to a new level. It is a great place for the "cyclist" however you are so comfortable if you are just a recreational rider looking for a good bike.

Green Bay Cycles is far above the rest. I have been and bought from 3 out of 4 and they acn not be equalled! Service and price are fantastic and they make you feel comfortable in their store. You can just drop by for coffee and filling your tires or looking around. They can service both the experienced road cyclists and the family bike riders equally. No better place!

No one provides the level of knowledge and professionalism that Velosmith Bicycle Studio delivers. This place is pure PRO! Tony's friendly and welcoming attitude, PRO level bike fitting skills, and incredible attention to detail in bike building are second to none. If you want a bike that fits you like a glove, delivers the goods when it needs to, and makes you smile every time you ride it, then go nowhere else!

Velosmith is the top bike shop/studio in the North Shore. Perfect bike fitting and shop. Tony tells you what you need to reach the next level, but does not push you to spend thousands. The Velosmith team works with you and your budget. I am very pleased and recommend them to all my cycling friends.

Sam and Larry are two radd dudes with a plethora of bike knowledge. They get my vote for best bike shop in town hands down!
