Bike riding is a pastime that many Vancouverites enjoy. But for some, cycling is more of a sport than a hobby, and for those there is La Bicicletta Pro Shop. Specializing in road and triathlon bicycles, La Bicicletta opened in Vancouver in 1984, and carries such professional brands as Cervelo, Kuota, Colnago and Pinarello.
Before You Buy
Whether you're in Vancouver on a trip or you just want to try before you buy, you're in luck. La Bicicletta rents out aluminum, carbon and triathlon bicycles from their Demo Fleet for four or seven days at a time. Racers can also rent a set of wheels for their big day, and those wanting to test out a wheelset can do so, and then if you decide to purchase a similar set in the store you may use the rental fee towards their purchase. Only need a simple yet specialized part? Training accessories are also available to rent, as well as travel cases for the commuter rider.
At Your Service
What really makes a specialty shop like La Bicicletta stand out are the services it offers. Experienced and knowledgeable staff are available to help you choose or customize a bicycle that's perfect for you, and certified fitters can help you be as comfortable as possible without compromising your bike's performance. There are a number of classes offered, such as spinning classes for riders who are getting back into the saddle and some for those who are entirely new to the game. Comprehensive Tune-Up and Bike Overhaul packages round out this bike shop's services.
