6 Best Bicycle Shops in Edmonton

Best Bicycle Shops in Edmonton

By Amelie Dube

Need something a little more eco-friendly to ride to work? The classic solution is not buying a hybrid or an electric car, but getting a bike from one of the best bicycle shops in Edmonton!

These places can get you affordable bikes and parts, from dirt bikes to Schwinn three-wheelers. We asked plenty of bikers which places would be the best to go to when they need a new ride.

We’ve roamed all of Edmonton looking for the ones that sell good-quality bicycles no matter what kind you’re looking for. Here are the ones we found to be best after looking around.

Customer Reviews

Here’s what customers are saying about them:

Very pleased with the service I received here recently. My bike was in poor shape and I took it in for multiple repairs. The staff were helpful and friendly. They did a ton of work for a reasonable price, and also were honest and did not do a repair I suggested because they decided it was not needed. My bike is a much better ride now!

—Jen Hocking, Google Reviews

Love your staff. They checked out my bike, and as I hadn’t ridden for a while, even reviewed gear shifting, and observed me “test driving” it to ensure it fit. There were no pressure sales and no “tacking on” unnecessary products or services. I’ll definitely return to check out a bike they suggested. And I’ll definitely refer others as well. 10/10

Absolutely phenomenal service, very honest and good working buisness. Brought in my bike for a service after a decade of abuse, they handled it like professionals, even got an upgrade for my bike to help prevented future issues. Great customer service and prompt as well, even during these times. Highly recommend!

—Bence Havas, Google Reviews

Super friendly staff spent the time to ensure I was getting the right bike, right size, and right spec to meet my needs.  Cabling was super pro and the bike immaculate – they obviously spent quite a bit of time ensuring everything was perfect!!

Customer Reviews

Here’s what customers are saying about them:

I was on the hunt for a bike in this crazy environment, most other stores I contacted were either to busy to answer questions or just didn’t return my phone call. This was not the case at Mud, Sweat And Gears, the staff at this branch were excellent from the initial phone call, to test riding through to purchase. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend and would gladly purchase from them again in the future. Keep up the good work good to see excellent customer service.

—Andrew R, Google Reviews

I have never been treated so well In terms of honesty and customer service. I had been a loyal customer to a shop close to Mud sweat and gears. But took my bike in today and was blown away by the service.  It’s definitely my go to bike shop. Cheers to all the staff

Customer Reviews

Here’s what customers are saying about them:

I went in to Pedalhead on the recommendation of a friend to look into fixing my very old road bike. I met with Chris and Lindsey who were both very helpful. I ended up flipping back and forth between a bike that was available in the shop and fixing my old one when I finally decided on a new one that they didn’t have in stock. I checked it out at another shop but ultimately, because of the excellent service at Pedalhead, I kindly asked if they would order me the one I wanted to go with. Although I’m sure I was not easy to deal with flip flopping for almost a week, everyone in the shop was nothing but kind and at no time did I feel pressured to get something that I knew wasn’t what I wanted. I appreciated the excellent expertise of Chris and the staff and I am beyond happy with the purchase I made and the service I was given. They have definitely earned a lifetime customer and I can’t wait to stop in again! Thank you everyone! 🙂

—D Alessandra, Google Reviews

The gang at Pedalhead are passionate about bikes and providing a great customer experience. They have competitive pricing, excellent customer service, a great selection of bikes and are great ambassadors for the sport. I would recommend their shop for anyone looking to purchase a bike and or bike accessories.

Customer Reviews

Here’s what customers are saying about them:

The bike mechanics at Red Bike were absolutely amazing. I went in this morning with a flat tire and they took me right in and also did a quick tune up. One advice for customers, please get these guys some coffee. They work really hard and are extremely polite!

—aruna maria, Testimonials

I had a great experience buying a bike here. Mark took his time with me and made sure that the bike I chose had a perfect setup (including doing multiple stem changes to get the fit right).  A totally laid back, no high-pressure sales atmosphere.  I will most certainly return here again for any of my bike needs.  Staff know their stuff.  Couldn’t ask for more in a local bike store.  Also, they took the social distancing stuff seriously which was nice.  It shows they really care about their customers.  If you’re looking for a new bike, make sure Redbike is at the top of your list.

Customer Reviews

Here’s a review from one of Element Cycling and Multisport’s clients:

“You’ve found it! This a shop you can trust. Element has been my bike shop for over 6 years and I can’t say enough about how happy I am! We’ve bought bikes from them, had others repaired, and been given all kinds of bike/gear/training advice. Elise and Cam I’ve found to have your best interest at heart and want to help you. They’re knowledgeable, talented, and fair. Bikes were selling so quickly this year that I just called Element, took their advice, bought my wife’s Felt FR over the phone, and we couldn’t be happier with it!! That’s trust!”

Here’s another one:

“Amazing service!! I needed some advice about grips and they were super helpful and friendly even with a small purchase!

Very knowledgeable”
