ATA Cycle

Value, value, value. These are the watchwords of ATA owner Husam Sahin, who picks his bikes based not on brand name, but on the bang for your buck. As a result, you’ll find row upon row of Raleigh, Kona, and Giant mountain bikes, and fancy Italian racing bikes at surprisingly low prices. Sahin and his staff will talk you through the arcana of V-brakes, suspension, and frame strength, and take the crucial extra time to adjust your new bike to fit you perfectly. Throw in six months of free repair and service, and you’ll be pedaling to a photo finish in no time.
