Gear West Bike & Triathlon has been a part of the Long Lake community since we opened our doors in 1993. Not only have we been involved on many levels locally, we have also been involved throughout the Midwest in the Triathlon community. We are a unique business because it is almost as if we have two sides of our business inside the one bike shop.
To many in the community we are the local bike shop. We have bikes for the whole family. From 12” bikes and BMX bikes to the Hybrids and Mountain bikes for the 'big kids'. It is surprising to many of the locals that we have so many bikes specifically designed for the road. But that accounts for the other half of our business – Triathlon.
In 1995 Gear West Bike & Tri started to do whatever we could to grow the triathlon scene in Minnesota. There were only a dozen or so triathlons and duathlons in 1995 and 5 of those shut down before the 1996 season. So we worked with any race that was still around by promoting, assisting, supporting and of course attending. Today there are over 90 multisport races in Minnesota alone. We certainly aren't suggesting that Gear West is solely responsible for all these events, but we continue to work with as many races as possible. This year we will offer financial support to 16 races as well as technical, logistical, and promotional support to many more.
We have always believed that it is our responsibility as a business to do the following:
We are proud of who we are as a business and as individuals. When you visit us, you will find a positive environment where each employee takes pride in what they do. A place that is casual, friendly and professional.
Thanks for your support and we hope to see you soon,
