About Cycle Loft

Boston's Professional Choice Since 1976

 
 
Welcome to Cycle Loft, since 1976, Boston's choice for bicycles, service, clothing, and advice. In our 16,000 square foot facility, just 2 blocks from Route 128/95's exit 33A, we have an incredible selection of services and products to enahnce your bicycle riding experience.
 

  

 

 
Cycle Loft's been around since 1976, when the first Cycle Loft was in nearby Lexington Center, on Muzzey Street. Any guesses how it got the name? Well, it's pretty simple, the first Cycle Loft was much much smaller than our present building--it was on the second floor of a small building--any time you wanted to bring your bike upstairs for service, you just gave a holler and someone would come down and help out. That's how it all got started. For a couple years, there actually were two Cycle Lofts--the one in Lexington, and where we are now, here in Burlington. Then, when the business kept growing, Burlington became the single location. The building we presently occupy was built in 1997; it's a beautiful space, and great facility with two floors of retail and service space. As we head into 2014, we look forward to the next 30 years, serving you and your families for all your cycling needs. We've been under new ownership for a 9 years now, making some changes to the building, our product lines, our staff--we hope you like the enhanced Cycle Loft. See you soon.

The Benefits of Shopping at Cycle Loft:

The bike you want, in your size and price range
We stock the world's highest-quality bikes from Trek, Specialized, Brompton, Dahon and Yuba to name a few, to meet the needs of every discipline and style of rider--new or seasoned. Whether you ride for big air or just the feel of the wind in your face, we can and will, make sure you're on the right bike that fits properly.

The Best Brands in the Industry
Quality names you can trust, such as Trek, Specialized, Linus, Vanmoof, Electra, Brompton, Dahon, Yuba, Izip, Haibike, Pashley, Surly, All-City, Haro, FIT, 9:zero:7, Subrosa--backed by people who know what they're doing: your friendly Cycle Loft sales staff. We've carefully chosen every bike, every component, every accessory, and every article of clothing to make sure each meets our own high standards.

Professional Staff Helping You Before and After The Sale
Every member of Cycle Loft staff is specially trained. Most have years of experience--in fact Anthony's been here more than twenty years--complemented by our ongoing training that keeps our staff up-to-date on the latest that bicycle technology can offer. This means we know more about not just the new stuff that's coming out, but we know how to fix even your 30 year-old touring bike with those funky French components, or your 60 year old English three speed, that needs just the right amount of TLC to get it back on the road. And by the way, don't forget you'll also see Cycle Loft trucks on the road throughout New England supporting all sorts of cycling activities: from USA Cycling races and our sponsored road and mountain bike teams, to fat bike and cycle-cross events, to charity rides such as the Pan-Mass Challenge and the MS150, to area centuries with the Charles River Wheelmen--we're there!
 We've even added a full-time USA Cycling Coach to our staff. Come on by and take a look.

Free 30 Day Warranty Check-Ups on All New Bikes
Buy a bike at Cycle Loft, then bring it in after you've ridden it awhile. We'll go over it from end to end, making sure that everything is working properly. This is most important for bikes with modern indexed shifting and cable actuated brakes, we want to tune them up once they've broken in a bit.

Lifetime Bike Warranties
Most of the new bicycles we sell come with a lifetime warranty on their frame and fork, and a one year warranty on most parts.

Quite a few of our bikes come with as much as a three-year warranty on their Shimano parts, or five year warranty on original equipment components from Bontrager.

Obviously, all warranties exclude normal wear and tear, and damage resulting from accidents or abuse...you know the drill, so stop on by, and we'll fill you in on the rest of the details regarding a specific product's warranty.

A Message from the Owner

Why Cycle Loft? Why "Since 1976?" Why the bicycle industry? What is an IBD?

Ever since January 2006, when I acquired Cycle Loft, we continue to work hard refining and changing the shop year after year; how it looks, what products we carry, and which unique services we can offer. It's who we are as people--always striving to make our customers' experience better, and to make our staffs' work more efficient. Why we lead this life of merchants in the bicycle industry, how we do it, and what we are really "selling" is a long story. We love what we do because we believe in the bicycle not only as a rectrational and sporting machine, but also a tool for massive social and environmental change. It's pretty simple, we believe, if you ride a bike, you feel better, and that is contagious throughout one's daily life and over the long term. Of course we help people buy bikes and the other stuffs that go with them, and we really look at the BIG picture of what a bicycle can do both individually and at in general and how it makes you feel. You might be angry before your ride, but chances are that has disappeared by the time you return or arrive at your desitination. Life is like riding a bike with ups and downs, But by and large, like life, we wouldn't trade it for anything.

Cycling and bicycles are our passion, and we consider ourselves fortunate to work in the cycling industry, especially at a time in our society when bicycles are becoming the focus more frequently as a problem solver to many of our local and global issues. 

You've heard the notions these days of shopping local, the value of brick and mortar stores in one's local communities, and the ills of shopping online. Well all that is true to a great extent. We understand that much of the time absolute price is important to our customers. And we truly believe that bicycles can be complicated, some more than others, and that at the end of the day, most riders are not going to be able to solve their mechanical issues autonomously. That's where we come in with the notion of customer service, in person, not online via webchat or webcams or webinars. We are here, have been since 1976, and intend on being so for the foreseeable future--but we do need your support to remain a sustainable fixture in the Community. It's really as simple as that. The world has changed rapidly, and will continue to do so--we just hope that the value of a face to face interaction will never go out of style.

Thank you for visiting our web page, I look forward to meeting you in person. And thank you for your continued support.

Jeff
