Sorry if this is the wrong section. I havn't owned a bike in 10 years and I really want to get one again, can someone that lives in Reno NV tell me of a good bicycle shop in the area ?
Thx for your time.
It depends on what you're looking for...rwbadley

College Cyclery on S. Virginia @ California ave. is a great shop for road bikes. Bike Wharehouse on Lakeside near Moana also for same. Bike Bananas in the NW off of Mae Ann is a great dirt shop. They have a few road bikes too. Great Basin @ S. Virginia and Hillcrest (near Plumb ln) carries Cannondale and Raleigh. They also have a tandem or two and some recumbents.

Motherlode in Sparks and Sierra Cyclesmith on south Virginia. Also both good shops.

Funny, R dub, I NEVER even think of College because they seem to be so uninvolved in the local scene (though I agree it's a nice shop to go in and browse through). Do they do ANYTHING to support local cycling?

Warehouse, Bananas, Motherlode, and Sierra Cyclesmith certainly do.
Right, good call...rwbadley

I typed in haste this AM. Tim and Leon down at Cyclesmith are great guys, I bought my stumpjumper there and Tim built a nice set of wheels for the Paramount. The Motherlode is also a good shop, tho I don't get in there much.

I don't know if Randy and College do much in town....I don't think so. But they do have a nice line of Bianchi and Serotta.
Second Sierra Cyclesmith, just because they participateCory

I like Randy at College Cyclery, but I take most of my kid-bike and wife-bike business to Great Basin (good mechanic, and they're nice guys), and the serious stuff to Sierra Cyclesmith. Tim Z. and his wheel guy, whose name I forget, have done a nice job on two wheelsets for me. And I see Tim and Leon at all kinds of bike-related events.
