Local bike retailers have a cycle for everyone



405 has an extensive offering of cycling gear including garments, helmets and accessories.  

· Sun & Ski Sports, 3447 W. Main St., enjoys the customer convenience and visibility of being located in the Sooner Mall.

Manager Rob Green isn’t a corporate transfer, he’s a Norman native who cut his teeth in the business working at Miller’s Cycling and Fitness.

“I was purely sales there fresh out of high school,” Green said. “My interest in cycling got me into the industry.”

Sun & Ski is a high sales volume operation. They have an abundance of floor space which allows for a big variety of bikes.

“We have Striders for kids who have just started walking all the way up to high-end road and mountain bikes,” he said. “We stock a good variety of all size bikes.”

Green credits his store atmosphere with lacking any pretension or intimidation factors which allows people new to the sport to feel comfortable learning about what they’d like to ride.

“We specialize in catering to the needs of first-time bike buyers,” he said. “I have an incredible staff who all remember what it was like before we really got into cycling.”

Sun & Ski has a full service department in the store and strive to keep their prices competitive with the other shops in town. The optional “Keep It Pedaling” offer with new sales is a one time cost 3-5 year warranty program that covers anything that can break on the bike, labor included. Brands carried include Haro, Orbeya, Masi, Marin and mainstay Fuji.

· Bike One, 159 24th Ave. NW, is managed by Tommy Duvall with a focus on service.

“We like to think Bike One provides the best service in town,” Duvall said. “We accommodate everybody on fixing their bikes whether you bought it from us or at Walmart. A bicycle is a bicycle to us.”
