We focus on our community and we look to offer the best we can for our customers, setting our own standards, and setting them high. Not content at being just a little better than the others… we go much further. Great product, great service, and a polite manner—a great in-store experience. We are here to serve you, those in our community. This is a mutual deal: we are here to support you, and we appreciate that you support Rock & Road by choosing to buy from us. Our approach is one where we earn your trust. We’re not here to rip you off or sell you things you don’t want, or things which aren’t right for you.
Our drive is to make your cycling experience as good as we can. We are happy to help you regardless of the type of riding you do (or want to do), how far you go, or how fast you are. We are just glad that you want to ride a bike, and we will help make your riding as enjoyable as we can. Whether you commute, ride for fitness, fun, or transport, we want to keep you rolling. Perhaps you race and you’re demanding on your equipment? Or maybe you don’t compete, but you understandably want the best—you can rely on top quality care and attention when you choose us over the many other bicycle retailers and service centres out there, and we are sure you’ll be glad you did.
The verdict is in, and after the world’s most acclaimed mountain bike reviewers got their first rides aboard the Turbo Levo FSR, it’s resounding…this bike is the real deal.
Coming in October: The new Retül Vantage 3D Motion Capture will be available from our bike fit studio soon.
