Why Us

What makes us unique and ways we're adding value to your purchases.

Not surprisingly we’re passionate about all things ‘bike’. As a business, Gear West Bike & Triathlon supports over 30 local events annually. Individually, everyone on staff participates as cyclists and triathletes at one level or another. Most of us are rather pedestrian ‘roadies’ and ‘tri geeks’, a few are accomplished age-groupers and two are professional triathletes that garner national recognition. All of us possess a vehemence for cycling and triathlon and enjoy nothing more than sharing that enthusiasm with anyone who would like to participate. We take a consultative approach to introducing customers to the many products we carry and we’ll answer questions in an unbiased, experience based manner. We’re also available to recommend the best races to try, which quiet back roads to ride, beautiful lakes to swim and connect like-minded athletes with groups to train with.

Gear West has a huge selection of triathlon and road bikes, wetsuits, apparel and accessories available in stock for immediate delivery. We unequivocally have more inventory than any other tri shop in the Midwest. This is not eye candy that’s sitting in a distributor's warehouse and advertised as if we have it in our showroom. It’s all right here! Stop staring at pictures on the internet and come see for yourself the stuff of your bike dreams. We carry equipment and accessories from the best and most innovative companies in the industry. We use it ourselves and it’s all the hardware, gadgets and newest devices that everyone is asking for.

Take the Gear West Virtual Tour
  • We feel the most important thing to consider when buying a bike is how well that bike fits, and you can only get a good bike fitting at a shop with the understanding and prerogative to get it done. A well fit bike performs better, is more comfortable and simply more fun to ride. When you buy your bike from Gear West Bike, the fitting is part of the process and there is no additional costs for it. We realize bike riders are dynamic beings. Fitness levels are likely to change with the seasons and goals and aspirations often vary from year to year. Our Bike Fit Assurance means we’ll not only fit you when you purchase your bike, but we will re-fit you as you become more familiar with it over the miles and re-fit you again – for any reason – such as rehabbing an injury or preparing for a demanding endurance event.
  • If for any reason you do not like a product (accessory, clothing, nutrition, wetsuit, etc.) you purchased from Gear West Bike & Triathlon, return it for repair, adjustment, exchange or refund within 30 days of purchase. We’re that confident in the products we carry that we offer the Gear West Guarantee on everything we sell.
  • Our 30 Day Price Match Guarantee lets you shop with confidence that your getting a the best deal on a bike. We’ll match any advertised bike price from local shops within 30 days of purchase.*
  • It’s an industry standard that all bikes have a parts warranty of one year. Register Your New Gear West Bike with us on-line for an Extended Parts Warranty of one additional year at no cost.
  • All new bikes purchased at Gear West come with a Complimentary Tune-Up within the first 12 months of ownership. We’ll also tend to adjustments that occur under normal riding conditions during the bikes’ first season free of charge.
  • You’ll probably want to get a few things to go with your new bike. Whether it’s shoes and pedals, a helmet, apparel or a car rack. We offer a 10% Accessories Discount at the time of bike purchase†. Picking up a bicycle from our service center? We extend the 10% accessories discount to our repair customers, making it a convenient time to pick up some chain lubricant, a floor pump or even a heart rate monitor. All bike accessories purchased at Gear West are installed and calibrated at no extra charge on your Gear West purchased bike.
  • As mentioned above, we have one of the largest inventories of any bike shop around and that includes an incredible selection of drinks, gels, bars and tablets anywhere. When you buy any 15 or more individual nutritional items, receive a 15% discount.
  • We recognize that many kids are on a bike from a department store rather than one from an independent dealer. There is a huge quality difference between both the bikes themselves and the caliber of their assembly and adjustment. A quality youth bicycle has components that adjust to allow a growing child to fit the bike longer and is more durable so that it may be passed down to younger siblings. After your family has out grown the bike, our Trade-Up Program allows you to trade it in for credit toward a larger model.

*Advertised bike must be in stock and same make and model year from a Twin Cities metro bicycle dealership.
