Good value for money, a decent touring bike (propped up on its stand in this picture), and helpful advice from Brandon, who kindly put mountain SPD pedals on the bike for me. I highly recommend the out-and-back route on the American Tobacco Trail greenway; it was ~75km there-and-back, but you can choose to shorten it by returning at any point. The Peruvian chicken place over the road is great for replacing protein and carbs after a ride!

I've been taking my bike here for years. Friendly people and great service. I just took my 10 year old hard tail in for service. It was clanking around the front crank. They removed the spindle, which is a bit worn now, but it's so old they didn't have a suitable replacement. But after he tightened it up it stopped making noise. Problem solved for a while at least.

skilled professional team that makes all their customers roll away with a smile. Stopped in with mechanical hiccup and saw their team serving kids, casual riders and serious cyclists with focused attention. A great jewel in our town.

Great local bike shop. Service was quick and very well done. A bit on the pricier side. Not many options for biking gear - maybe two of each type of thing? Which is totally understandable since they are a small shop. Many many many bike options though, def worth a look!

I recommend this shop and I would like to relate a few experiences. First, I have had very positive experiences with Dave and his staff. Dave is an interesting guy, having done graduate work in American literature but deciding to pursue the bicycle business for a living. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, very honest and open, and he enjoys interacting with and helping customers. I was getting ready for my event "The Assault on Mt. Mitchell" and Dave helped me with a fitting session to optimize the fit of the bicycle. He spent about 2 hours with me, explaining everything in clear and understandable ways and adjusting things over and over until they were in the middle of the optimal range. The fit made an ENORMOUS difference, and I could feel an obvious benefit right away. To me, this service is worth every penny. A couple of days before my event, I had a crisis with a broken bolt to one of my water bottle cages. One of Dave's staff who was extremely competent got the broken bolt out of the frame in about 5 minutes and replaced the bolt with a stronger one for my peace of mind. He picked up that my headset felt off and he checked that out for me. I completed my event, beating my previous PR by 15 minutes. I have to say, I love this bicycle shop.

Brandon was fantastic. I came in as a total beginner wanting to learn about mountain bikes and components so I could decide what to buy. He taught me all the basics and let me test ride a few bikes to help me get a feel for what I wanted. His passion for the sport shines though his work. I tried numerous bike shops that were closer and just never got the respect I was looking for. I found it here.

I bought a used bike off of FB and found out the seller fudged on the bike's age. Phil at Durham Cycles was kind enough to check out if I really got screwed over, or if the bike was ok for the money. He recommended a tune up and some other repairs. After a few rides, the bike was having some pedaling issues and when I brought it back, they took care of that with no fuss. If you're worried (like I was) that a biking novice would be talked down to by cycling elitists, you can rest assured that you won't find that at Durham Cycles. Rather, I felt like I was appreciated and acknowledged as one entering the hobby with friendliness, respect, and fairness.

Easily my favorite bike shop and a great vibe. Over the last decade, I’ve had several fittings and purchased two bikes from Dave. The folks there are knowledgeable and easy to work with, and the service and wrenching are outstanding. I highly recommend.

Great place to rent bikes from. The staff was super helpful & accommodating; they even offered us free donuts. Would definitely check this place out if you are in need of a bike rental while traveling.

Friendly service. Owner is on point. Great for routine servicing, repairs. If they don't have what you're looking for in stock they will find it for you. Highly recommended.
