A little history about our first bike shop at this location was started by a man called John Engstrom. The shop was called North Shore Cycle and was started in the early thirties. It was one of the first bicycle shops on the north side of the city. The bicycles he sold were coaster bike and hi-wheelers.

In 1955, Bernard and Estelle Garber purchased the shop which at the time dealt in both bicycles and hobbies although there were only half a dozen bicycles in the shop. They gradually built up the shop and renamed it Robert's Cycle after one of their sons. In the late sixties, Richard Bonomo was working for Arky's Cycle in Glenwood. In 1970, he started working for Mr. Garber who was expanding his selection of bicycles to include Raleigh, Peugeot, Gitane and eight to ten other brands. He also built up his selection of frames to include Jack Taylor, Bob Jackson, Fiorelli, Masi, Cinelli and several others. Kris Peterson started working for Mr. Garber in 1972 which was the beginning of the bike boom. In 1979, Mr. Garber sold the shop to Mr. Bonomo and Mr. Petersen.
