We hired 2 bikes for the day from Brick Wheels and in all the places we've previously been Brick Wheel stood out by a mile. Being properly sized up on the bikes (decent Trek) and they were checked over prior to being let out, free locks & helmets and maps too. We were recommended routes along the Tart trail locally...

We rented three trek carbon road bikes. They were in fairly great condition. The only reason this was not an excellent review is because the wheel sensor on the bike was not fitted properly and the shifting was a bit off which had to be offset with adjustments on the shifter instead of just one crisp adjustment. Overall though it... More

We stopped in for biking information and we will be back. The staff were very welcoming and made us wish we had more time to rent and ride. We enjoyed learning more about T.C. from locals who appreciate where they live. This is a big shop with great inventory.

While visiting during a weekend at the Snowshoe, Wine, and Brew event with Brew Bus, I rented a pair of snowshoes. This was so easy and the people were extremely welcoming. When I come back in the summer I plan on stopping for unique bike maps.

Visited with young family and received excellent service hiring kit. Friendly and well informed local staff fitted us with rental snowshoes and filled us in on good places to go with kids around the local area. To our surprise they even sorted us out with a ride to a good spot for family snowshoeing on discovering we didn't have a... More

We rented bikes from Brick's when we visited Traverse City in September. The experience was overall excellent. The customer service was excellent - the staff were friendly, knowledgable, eager to assist. The bikes were awesome!! The experience far exceeded our expectations. Originally, the bike store across the parking lot was the one that was recommended to us. We went there... More

Had an issue with our tandem while visiting Traverse City. Found this place purely by accident and were pleasantly surprised. It was very helpful to speak with someone who was familiar with tandems, understood our dilemma, and suggested a couple options to solve the problem. I would go back in an instant.

I love these guys. They overhauled HomeBoy's and my mountain bikes, removing all traces of a bumpy move and were overjoyed to share excellent riding trails, places to visit, and more! We returned later to check out cruisers, and the manager gave us his undivided attention to answer every single one of our questions--- and we had a lot. Unfortunately,... More
