Today, Grit Cycling provides a wide selection of both new and used cycles of all types for riders ranging from beginner to competitive, from triathlete to mountain biker, and from steel frame to carbon.

They also have Grit Group Rides for all levels regularly. See the shop link for details!

6 Vic's Classic Bikes

Vic started restoring bicycles in his garage before opening his first shop on Preston St. His interest in restoring old 70’s & 80’s bikes came out of his love for the quality frames and components made at the end of the handmade bike era in America.

They’ve got hundreds of quality vintage lugged-steel road bikes from the 1970s and ’80s, in all sizes, the inventory changes constantly. They also carry a wide selection of brand new & used bikes for all riding styles.
