Contender Bicycles is a collective of cyclists who share an excitement for riding and a love of all-things bikes. Located in the heart of Salt Lake City’s 9th and 9th small business district, we’re proud to promote a cycling culture, and contribute to the vibrant and growing Utah cycling scene. With access to hundreds of miles of gold-rated IMBA mountain bike trails and five harrowing canyon road climbs, Salt Lake offers unbeatable riding (with numerous routes leaving directly from the shop). If you like bikes, it’s a great place to be.
We’ve seen the rise and fall of numerous trends, and even more specialty bike shops. To us, being a premier bike retailer means promoting all types of riding, for all levels of riders. We believe in an unassuming experience that helps every customer achieve a great time on the bike. We’re constantly testing and reviewing new products and go-to-standards, to ensure our customers, and friends, ride the best. That’s why we stock hundreds of shoes and helmets, numerous premium apparel brands, and forego the single-bike-brand-approach in favor of a selection of the industry’s best. From the elegant quality of a Time, the industrial beauty of a Moots, the versatility of an OPEN, and the convenience of a Stromer, Contender Bicycle is committed to making every bike a dream bike, no matter where or how you ride.
Finally, our difference is our community. We’re fortunate to have knowledgeable, committed staff on-hand to answer detailed questions, perform complex service, and just be there to listen as a vision for a new bike comes together. And we’re even more fortunate to have our community of loyal, amazing customers to help tell our story and share in our time on and around the bike.
