Brick Wheels is a family owned, long established bike and X-country ski shop located on the TART recreation trail smack in the middle of Traverse City MI. They sell And rent Trek bikes as well as other brands. An extensive clothing department and kids department round out their selection of gear.
However, it is their employees and their rentals that set them apart from the other bike shops in town. Brand new carbon Treks are available in the rental department and there are always at least three certified mechanics ready and willing to help, usually while you wait.
Can't say enough about the knowledgeable staff, who are all bicycle enthusiasts. And did I mention that they are right by the Traverse Area Recreation Trail?

We hired 2 bikes for the day from Brick Wheels and in all the places we've previously been Brick Wheel stood out by a mile. Being properly sized up on the bikes (decent Trek) and they were checked over prior to being let out, free locks & helmets and maps too. We were recommended routes along the Tart trail locally with places to stop off at and see. Prices were very reasonable and we were allowed longer than originally booked for with no extra fee. Very friendly and highly recommended.

We rented three trek carbon road bikes. They were in fairly great condition. The only reason this was not an excellent review is because the wheel sensor on the bike was not fitted properly and the shifting was a bit off which had to be offset with adjustments on the shifter instead of just one crisp adjustment. Overall though it was a good ride and the staff were very nice.

Rented 3 Trek road bikes - nice up-to-date carbon bikes. Liked the repair kits with the C02, spare, multitool setup inside even we did not use them. Rode out to lighthouse on Old Mission Peninsula and back - stuck to the coastal route - few cars and great pavement. Met Mr. Brick on the return - nice guy for sure. I would definitely recommend the experience to any of you roadies out there

We stopped in for biking information and we will be back. The staff were very welcoming and made us wish we had more time to rent and ride. We enjoyed learning more about T.C. from locals who appreciate where they live. This is a big shop with great inventory.
