City Bicycle Co.

Bicycle Sales – Repairs – Custom Built
City Bicycle located in Wilmington NC 28403
City Bicycle Company is an old-fashioned family bike shop specializing in adventure cycling. That means heavy and light touring, bike-packing, greenway riding, overnighting, commuting, and even adventure racing — any adventure on a bicycle.
We also build custom bikes of all types, from one-off Italian steel road beauties, to fixies, beer getters, to race bikes, and of course our specialty — adventure bikes. Our well equipped service department is nearly as large as our showroom so we can repair the adventure bikes we sell and even those bikes we didn’t sell.

The best adventures start
with the best bicycles.

Often the difference between a bike ride and a great bike ride is having the right equipment.
With any activity it is important to have the “right tool for the job”.

City Bicycle Company is big enough to have a great selection and yet small enough to care about each customer.  With nearly half our floor space devoted to our service department, you can see that keeping you riding is as important to us as selling you a bike.
We are also excited to be a stocking dealer for SalsaSurly, Kona and Reid adventure bikes.

What Sets Us Apart?

Our “old fashioned” customer service is what sets us apart from our competition. It’s not just how we treat you while you’re buying your bike but how we go the extra mile to make you feel a part of the City Bicycle family.

Lifetime Warranty

Any new bike purchased here in the store includes our lifetime free labor warranty.  Whether it’s a tune-up, an overhaul, routine maintenance, or even air in the tire, if you bought your bike from us you’ll never pay a dime in labor for as long as you keep it.

Low Price Guarantee

Let’s face it: Nobody wants to pay too much.  That’s why we’ll meet or beat any competitor’s price on the same bike, accessory, part or service — make for make, model for model, part for part, and warranty for warranty.  You’ll never spend too much at City Bicycle Company.

Buy-back Guarantee

If you purchased your new bike from us, we’ll always be willing to buy it back or allow you to trade it in toward a new bike.  If we buy it back we’ll pay you wholesale Bicycle Blue Book value.  If repairs need to be made, we’ll even make adjustments in value to cover those repairs so you won’t have to spend your money to get the bike ready to sell.

Rent-to-Own Program

Certain bicycles qualify for our rent-to-own program.  You’ll pay half down and ride away on your new bike and then make weekly, interest-free payments until you’ve paid for the bicycle in full.  If you decide you don’t want to keep it — for any reason — you can turn the bike in and walk away with no negative impact on your credit.

Same Day Service

Most bicycle repairs can be made the same day.  If the needed parts are not in stock, we’ll be happy to pre-order them for you and when they arrive, schedule you to drop your bike off for repair in one day saving you weeks of waiting as your bike works its way up the service queue.

Rent any Bike (well, nearly any)!

Unlike most bicycle shops who have a fleet of “rental only” bicycles, we will allow you to rent most of our manufactured bicycles. (Sorry, custom built bicycles don’t apply.)  This might be a way of trying out a particular model or category of bicycle before committing to a purchase, or it might be to simply replace your current ride while it is being repaired.
