At Montlake Bicycle Shop we truly enjoy choosing the bikes that we stock and build to show you. We have access to so many of the world's best brands that we choose a wonderful selection of models that makes it possible for you to find the bike of your dreams. We have bicycles from tiny companies like Gunnar, Ridley and Brompton, and big companies like Giant and Cannondale (and many in between). We offer over one hundred different models - each specifically chosen because we believe it offers the best value based upon that style of bike. Each rider has particular interests and needs, and we are confident that we can help you find your own dream bike.
Bicycle technology is constantly changing, sometimes improving dramatically for particular applications. We offer the most exciting and innovative new models from our many manufacturers. Sometimes these new models provide little more than cosmetic updates from previous years successful models. In this case, we often continue to buy the older models when available because it makes possible to offer you a better price on a bike that is right for you. Stop by either location to have a test ride today!

Montlake Bicycles Basic Maintenance Class
Montlake Bicycle Shop wants you to get the most out or your new bike. We invite you to attend our Basic Maintenance Class where we cover the basics of using and maintaining your bike, unlike many others classes available this will be a hands-on experience where you will leave feeling confident that you can:
Class sizes are always kept small so that we can address your individual needs. Schedules change seasonally, call or visit to sign up for a class.
This class is free with the purchase of a bike or $25.00 without the purchase of a bike.
Your bicycle may be covered by a manufacturer’s warranty against defects in materials and construction. The warranty is to the original owner only. Most components are covered for one year from the date of purchase. Your frame may be covered for five years or longer. There are restrictions and exceptions, please see your owner’s manual or contact the manufacturer for more specifics.
Montlake Bicycle Shop is responsible for the initial assembly and adjustment of your bicycle. We provide a free 200 mile performance adjustment of your bicycle; please bring your bicycle in for that service. Proper functioning of your bicycle requires readjustment after this break-in period. Damage caused by abuse, neglect or impacts is not covered by warranty. Riding under wet, muddy or rough conditions will increase the maintenance needs of the bicycle.
