Bicycles are fun. Everybody loves getting on a bike. It's a great way to get out and get some exercise. There are so many levels of bicycling.


The BMX All-Purpose Bike

BMX's are strong in Hanover, PA. They provide a challenge for racing, tricks and jumps and are still a good ride machine.  From first bike to shredder, they adjust to a lot of sizes and we keep a big stock of BMX's in our showroom.

We have BMX's in a dazzling array of colors with top specs that have quality designed, machined headtube frames, super grips, freewheeling cogs, alloy rims and mega U-brakes. And we can customize for your own personal look with upsweep and backsweep bars, with safe knurled clamping area so you can pull on them to your heart's content.

BMX  - Haro - GT - Eastern - Free Agent

We carry Giant, KHS and Raleigh Bikes, too

 Mountain Bikes


There's lots of trails in the Hanover area.  Over at Codorus there's a trail that Kessler's Bicycles owner, Ron Stitely and friends laid out and first cut. Rocky Ridge in York has miles of trails and the Michaux Forest trails are beautiful.

Slow speed handling is one of the big advantages of a mountain bike. Big tires, low center of gravity, forward fork offset and a steering axis that is trail-designed are design elements that make the mountain bike a trail master. They still have high speed stability, but you might have to work a little harder than a touring or racing bike on pavement to maintain cruising speed.

Because of their handling characteristics, mountain bikes are often a favorite with commuters who take their bikes in and out of alleys and on sidewalks.

Full-Suspension or Hardtail

A thick-tired mountain bike can have full-suspension with fork and rear shock to give you control and comfort, whatever the terrain.  The competitive types might choose the lightweight hardtails that are without shocks to give you a hardwired connection to the trail.

Touring or Racing Bikes

These are the bikes that used to be called "Ten-Speeds".  Now they usually have gears for more than ten speeds, but they still have the same drop handlebars and tall wheels we associate with that design. They are built for cruising on paved roads as opposed to off-road terrain.  These bikes will go the distance and are good for recreation or commuting on roads.

When laden with baggage, the term touring bike is often applied to these same bicycles, although straight handlebars may also be seen on touring bikes.  A rack on the back or front may hold specially designed luggage that can range from plain bags to fold over suit bags that can keep your dress clothing neat while cycling to work.

Stuff Everyone Can Use

A water bottle, tire pump or tool kit may also fit on the inside frame for any style bike and yes, there are even cellphone holders for your handlebars.  We have lots of gadgets and holders that can  can help you carry the basics or even racks to carry camping gear. Come see our collection in our Baltimore Street Showroom in Historic Downtown Hanover, PA.

 Tandem Touring


Yes, we can get you a bicycle built for two or more (by special order).  They are lots of fun and many couples tour on them.  They actually can make it easier for two riders of different abilities to ride together.  There's lots of frame space for multiple water bottles, tools, pumps, fork rack and rear rack luggage.  And with all the leg power, you can even pull a bike trailer.

You can go for amazing combinations. We do all kinds of customization and special orders - Ask us, we're easy to talk to.
