My wife and I recently visited Kalamazoo and we rented bikes from the shop. We often rent bikes when we travel, and I can say with no hesitation
Keep up the great work and thank you for your great inventory and service!
Remember that the viewing for our retirement liquidation auction is Wednesday at the shop, from 10am - 4pm! Stop by, check out what we have left, admire our antique cycling posters, and place a bid online the next day.
Thank you to everyone for the nice comments about your memories of the store over the last 45 years - we loved every minute of it and hope that the retirement is just as enjoyable!
After 45 years serving the Kalamazoo cycling community, there’s finally a good excuse for Doug to retire and take up a new hobby - being a grandpa!
That’s right, Alfred E. Bike is closing. We’ve already sold off all of our bikes, and all that's left is to get rid of the last parts, accessories, tools, and fixtures we still have. There will be an auction on February 9th on Biddergy: http://www.biddergy.com/…/retirement_sale_-_alfred_e_bike_o… which involves a viewing on Februa...ry 8th to allow people to inspect items before they bid online the next day.
Included in the auction is our amazing collection of antique cycling posters. Come down on February 8th to check them out, bid online on February 9th, and help support Baby Kai’s college fund!
We’re very grateful to the many friends and loyal customers we’ve had since 1972. Thank you Kalamazoo!
Just a reminder that our showroom is closed as our building undergoes some extensive renovations. Stay tuned to this page for further updates! We expect this to last through the month of January.
** Holiday Hours **
We will be open from 10am - 2pm the remainder of this week. Closed on Christmas Eve. After Christmas, our building is undergoing some major renovations so we'll be closed during the month of January since it is the off-season anyway. Thanks to you all and we wish all of our customers happy holidays!
As we prepare for some major building renovations we have pulled down this vintage early 20th century bike that's been on our wall, and are putting it out there to see if an appropriate buyer can be found. If anyone has interest or some information on this bike, please comment. The story when we bought the bike in the 80s was that it was originally manufactured in Kalamazoo. Wooden rims, original grips and drivetrain. A real collector's piece.
