Slowly but surely, spring is sneaking up on us in Grand Rapids. Warming temperatures, longer days, and melting snow have everyone pulling their bike off the rack.
Gravel heads are mapping out new routes.
Ironman hopefuls are itching to get off the indoor trainer (woof).
Local college kids are aiming to be 5 minutes less late to class.
And all of them will see the issues months of dormant time can create for a bike. Before clipping in, shifting gears, or trying to pedal, take your bike to one of the top five bike shops in Grand Rapids for some proper love and attention.
1. Biked | Mobile Bike Care Made Easy
What better place in Grand Rapids than right where you’re sitting?
Download the Biked app or visit biked.app and request the service you need (we recommend a premium tune-up to kick off the spring), and one of our technicians will come right to your location to pick it up.
Once we finish with it at our cutting-edge service shop, we’ll bring it back to you, ready to ride.
We put the best option first for ease and quality of service, but we’ll see you pedaling around Grand Rapids no matter where your bike gets serviced this spring.
2. FreeWheeler Bike Shop
It’s hard to beat the expertise at FreeWheeler.
What sets this Grand Rapids shop apart is the amount of custom mountain, road, and fat-tire work they do. They’ll tweak, rig, and fix any bike to a customer’s exact specifications.
If your bike is ultra-custom made, consider dropping in for a visit.
The staff at Switchback Gear Exchange is some of Grand Rapids’ finest.
Their exemplary services give customers affordable access to high-quality outdoor recreation goods without the usual elitist vibes common among the outdoor community.
