“I stopped by today to get a slight adjustment only to find them slam packed with people trying to get their bikes fixed or picked up to use more during this time at home. Not only did they take the extra min to get me taken care of but they did it quickly. I have had my bike tuned on here in the past and had a great experience at that time as well. Good service is hard to come by and this bike shop is worth the positive review based on my continued experiences.” – JC S.

“I’d like to give a big shout out to Shauna at Uptown Cycles. I haven’t even purchased a bike yet, just shopping for one, but Shauna was enthusiastic, informative, and patient. In fact, everyone I interacted with was enthusiastically helpful, even at the end of a long busy day. This shop was a pleasure to work with, and Shauna is a great representative.” – John S.

“Bike Sport went above and beyond with their service during the Stay at Home Order throughout Charlotte. Despite having to pivot and adjust during these challenging times to remain open, they were responsive, had fast service, and went out of their way to make sure I had what I needed. Above all, they were extremely friendly and helpful during these challenging, chaotic times. I will definitely be a repeat customer!” – Melody C.
Ultimate Bicycle as a company, has existed in several forms in the Charlotte area since 1993, under several owners. After Mike bought the shop, they all sat down to talk about the changes they would like to see, and what direction they believe that they should go. They promise you that every single item in their store is there because they believe in it. They carry the widest range of bicycles in the city that is practical, affordable, comfortable, and fun. As a shop, they consider every single model of bicycle that they carry.

“I bought a Trek bike here in March 2020 from UB. The customer service here is the very very best. The staff was ready to help me decide on the bike that best for my needs. They listened attentively, ask questions, and recommended the bike I bought. I have no regrets and very happy with my new bike. The staff always, after the sale, willing to answer questions, help in accessorizing my bike. I highly recommend this bike store to friends.” – Ronald S.

“I’m a repeat customer here and they are truly excellent. They’ve taken care of my bike tune-up, repairs, and helped me order parts. Claire and the rest of the team were extremely friendly. However, the main reason I’m writing this review is that when something wasn’t right with the last repair, they had such pride in their work that they took care of it, ordered a missing part, and did so free of charge. I trust them with my bike and you should too!” – Nima A.
