We’re Renovating!

If you have visited us lately, you’ll have noticed the renovations to our store that are under way. Due to factors outside our control, we were unable to perform these renovations during the slower winter season, and construction got pushed into the spring. Do not fear, as we will remain open while renovating to satisfy all of your bicycle related needs!

FREEWHEEL CYCLE ANNUAL BICYCLE AND GEAR SWAP!

Freewheel’s Annual Bicycle and Gear Swap is Back!

Saturday, March 26, 2016 10am – 4pm

Have some old gear that you think someone else could put to good use? Maybe you’ve realized that bike you bought on special really DOESN’T fit. Maybe it’s a gift that just didn’t work (sorry mom and dad). Bring your old bikes and gear down to be put into our swap!

How does it work?

Simply bring your bike down to us anytime until Thursday, March 24 (assuming no parts are necessary to order. EARLIER IS BETTER!). We will check over your bike, assess any necessary repairs, and discuss a selling price with you. You will have to pay for the repairs regardless of if your bike sells. On the day of the swap we will have all the bikes and gear displayed for people to view, and if your bike/gear is purchased you can return for 80% of the value in cash, or 100% in store credit. If your bike does not sell you MUST promptly return to pick it up.

*Bike shop quality bikes and parts only*

Come on down, sell some of your gear and pick up a great riding deal for this coming season!

Say No To The Bike Show!

Now, until March 6th, all of our remaining 2015 bicycles are being sold at dealer cost, and all last season’s helmets, gloves, and riding gear are 50% off!

say-no-bike-show-sale-freewheel-cycle-dundas-hamilton

At Freewheel, we are committed to helping our customers find the perfect bicycle that suits how they ride, and fits perfectly. Events like the Toronto International Bike Show create an environment that makes it quite challenging to give each customer the attention that they deserve. This is why we instead have our own sale event running all week that allows us to spend the time required to match you to the right bicycle.

Instead of battling the crowds at the bike show, pay us a visit and we will put in the effort to give you the bicycle buying experience you’re looking for. At Freewheel you will find advice from experienced riders, unparalleled bicycle fitting services, and a fantastic selection of bikes and accessories.
