Hi everyone,

I was wondering if you can recommend a good bicycle store w/ great service in Charlotte. We want to get new mountain bikes but we are beginners and would need expert advise on which model to choose etc.

Thanks,
Chris

What sort of budget did you have in mind?

Ultimate bicycle. They have a store in Matthews on Sardis Rd. and one on Pineville-Matthews Rd. (I think that one might be called something else, but owned by the same guy). We've spent quite a lot of $ there since coming here. The guys are very knowledgeable when it comes to mtn. bikes and my husband really likes the stores. Good luck.

I second the Ultimate Bicycle comment. I went in as a complete novice not having rode a bike in 187 years and they were very patient and honest with me. Great experience!!! I went to the one in Matthews which is near the Kinkos on Monroe Rd. and Sardis, but had the bike serviced at the one in Pineville which is near the Purple Picket.

Good Luck!

Another recommendation for Ultimate! My husband is an avid cyclist (both road and mountain). They level of service he gets there is fantastic. They really know their stuff and never try to "oversell". He goes to the one in Pineville.
