Positioned in historic Downtown Cedar Falls, Bike Tech is located in what many believe to be the first space to sell bicycles in the area. The Wise & Bryant Drug & General Store sold goods of all sorts to the citizens of a young and growing Cedar Falls.
Bike Tech - 1996 to 2012
Ten years later, in 2006, Bike Tech was purchased by current owner Brent Johnson. A UNI alum, Brent graduated in 2002 and went to work in the "real" world. Having worked at bike shops both during and after college, Brent jumped at the opportunity to enter the bike business full time.
Since its beginning, Bike Tech has continued to evolve based on customer suggestions, the experiences of Bike Tech staff, and thoughts from our peers in the bicycle retail community. In doing so, we strive to be the best bicycle shop the Cedar Valley has to offer.
Bike Tech was started in 1996 as Advantage Cyclery went out of business. Started by Troy Meyeraan, Bike Tech carried bike brands such as Specialized, Marin, Mongoose, GT, Bianchi, Serotta, Colnago, and Bontrager through the years.
And now, in 2015, we move to a location to better serve our customers and increase efficiency. Leaving our location on Main Street of 19 years, we move 1-1/2 blocks away to inhabit a newly renovated historic post office built in 1917. Located behind Cedar Falls City Hall and the Police Department, we look forward to the increase in space as well as product selection while continuing to provide the best products and service in the Cedar Valley.
