The idea of having our own shop began years ago: Buckhannon was without a shop of its own and driving 30 miles to get our bikes worked on was a major headache. We wanted to have a store that everybody felt welcome in and went away feeling good about the sport of Mountain Biking.
We set simple goals. Sell top name brands of bicycles, carry accessories that everybody needs, and have a service department that can fix any bike in a limited amount of time. Above everything else, treat every person that walks through the door the way we would want to be treated.
We opened our doors on April 10th, 1998, and one month later, on Mothers Day had an open house and dedication service. As we look back on our 17+ years of business we have to give thanks to the Lord and the cycling community.
More than just a bike shop, we want Fat Tire Cycle to be the place you find what you need, whether that be a bike or accessories, or maybe just some helpful advice on where to ride. We invite you to stop by the shop; the only reason we are here is to make cycling an enjoyable experience for you. Service is what we want our business to be known for. With bikes in every price range and a size for every rider, you are sure to find just the right bike for you. We have expanded our line of accessories and parts, and have a mechanic on duty daily to solve your repair problems.
