Since 1955, we’ve offered Traverse City a place to get the best bikes, the best service, and affordable rentals. City Bike Shop is located in the heart of downtown and the perfect spot to start or end your ride. We offer top-notch, professional repairs for racers, commuters, and the anyone who loves to pedal.


Our Team

Steve and Julie Baesch have owned and operated City Bike Shop for nearly four decades! You’ll find Steve on a repair stand, servicing fitness equipment, or out on the trails with our race team. Julie keeps the shop running and loves to hit the Vasa Singletrack!

Nate, Jeff, and George are our team of cycling experts and service crew. Nate St. Onge is an absolute legend in northern Michigan and you won’t find a more talented and experienced wrench in the state. Jeff and George are endlessly enthusiastic about cycling. Jeff has ridden all over the country and even tackled the Lumberjack 100 mountain bike race!

“Life is like a ten speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use.”
