Spoke Life Cycles

Who are we? Two guys realizing a long dream of owning their own bike shop and being able to share our passion with so many people.  We don't see it as work because we love what we do! In 2011 Brian and Rob started kicking ideas around about taking a huge leap into the world of entrepreneurship.  The two guys became friends back in 1998 when they met in a chemical engineering class at the University of Toledo.  It wasn't too long after that class they both realized engineering wasn't for them.  Although they didn't have grand plans of owning a business just then the friends remained in touch and ended up working together at Honda East in 2011 in the sales and finance department.  It was then they discovered a shared desire to to venture out and create something they could call their own.  They decided on Perrysburg because at the current time there were no bike shops servicing the area, and with great access to local highways and major arteries the shop is really not to far from the entire Toledo Metropolitan area.  Not being really partial to any specific brand the guys reached out to Manufactures (Specialized, GT, and Schwinn) they felt were in need of more representation in North West Ohio to give them a competitive edge.  They picked brands that would help them meet the cycling needs of an entire community from road cycling to comfort riding and from downhill enthusiast to cross country mountain biking.  Specialized manufactures a bike for every riding segment and then some, meaning Spoke Life Cycles has a bike for you!

 

We carry Specialized Bicycles as well as GT and Schwinn. If you are looking to get out and train for that next race or just run down to Churchill’s for some milk we have the bike for you. Spoke Life Cycles has a full service department and we service all makes and models including brands such as Trek, Cannondale, Giant and many other bikes. Check out our service page for more details. We also carry bicycling accessories such as computers, lights, transportation racks, and child carts; anything you need for your bike we can get!  Our bike shop is located in Perrysburg Ohio the Shoppes at River Place on the corner of Dixie Hwy and Eckel Junction; after your visit we hope you will call it your bike shop too!
