Over thirty years ago, Glacier Cyclery began its life as a service only shop. Through the years, Glacier Cyclery has grown to be one of the largest shops in the wonderful state of Montana. However, our roots are still founded in service and we pride ourselves on being one of the best equipped, well staffed, most capable bicycle service shops under the stars.
In our attempt to keep abreast of the latest technology, we continue to receive training through manufacturer’s seminars, classes, and manuals. We use professional tools and time-tested techniques to provide you with the best bicycle repair and maintenance possible. Our mechanics are trained to the highest level of competence. For some this takes a matter of hours, for others it’s a lifelong learning process.
