Welcome to Velocity Cycles!
We are a full service and sales bicycle store in Walnut Grove, Langley. Having just celebrated our ten year anniversary of helping people fulfill their cycling dreams, we’re excited sell and service all kinds of bicycles. We try to have more exciting flavors than the other vanilla corporate shops out there. These days the bike categories are so specific it can be a daunting task to pick out “the” bike. Our helpful sales staff has years of experience and will listen to what you want not just sell you what they think is cool. Although they will probably still tell you what’s hot just in case!
Already have a bike you love? Need it tuned up? New parts? Bought stuff online that doesn’t seem to fit? Our team of expert mechanics will keep it tip top.
In case you didn’t know.
No caption needed.
Remember fellas, you gotta tip Fat Rippers too.
Today at the shop, local legend Nick Tingren stopped by to chat with our mechanics, so we decided to make the VOTD some Nick Tingren action. This video of the shore makes us wish it was dusty hot instead of raining. 🙁
Brandon Semenuk and Reddbull released a sick new video, but since it’s on Redbull we can’t share it on OUR site. So instead, heres that cool ONE SHOT video he did a while back. You can find the NEW Brando Semenuk video HERE!

Heres a sick mega throwback for todays video of the day
SICK. ASS. TECHNOLOGIES.
For today’s video we wanted to show this old school clip of Wade Simmons (The Godfather) huckin it big time instead of riding these roller-skateable, groomed enduro trails. Long Live Marzocchi, death to invaders!
It’s Cat Saturday… you know what that means.
For today’s video, we bring to you Stevie’s segment from Seasons, a classic mountain bike film. It really shows that if you believe in your dreams, it will come true. Stevie was known for being such a positive influence, and a talented downhill rider. On May 10th, he experienced a massive brain injury, which resulted in death. The mountain bike community has truly suffered a great loss, losing Stevie at the young age of 26 years old. The World Cups will not be the same without the Canadian Chainsaw Massacre. Ride in peace, Stevie.
Today we chose this cool video from the Devinci Cycles factory in Chicoutimi, Quebec. Devinci is our biggest brand here, we love selling them and they are insanely well made. Plus, since they’re Canadian made, you don’t have to deal with the crazy exchange rate. If you’re in the market for a new bike of any kind, check out Devinci!
We’re booked solid until next week as Whistler is opening this weekend. We won’t have time for any more walk in jobs, sorry! As of right now, we’re booking for Tuesday/Wednesday. We hope everyone has an awesome weekend at Whistler, and that everyone rides safely!
Reminder that we are also CLOSED this Monday the 23rd, for Victoria Day, so our staff can get some riding in, as well!
Enjoy your long weekend! We’ll be back at it again on the Tuesday!
Hey Guys n Gals!
Our buddies at Transition are finally having a demo weekend here in BC! Locations and times are listed. If you’re in the market for a new bike, this is perfect for you. We love selling Transition. The boss rides a Patrol and a TR500 and he has loved them from the start. Insane bikes, beautifully made, and the performance is amazing.
(To clarify, as the photo is a bit hard to read, Saturday April 23rd will be at the base of Fromme Water Tower on the North Shore. Sunday the April 24th will be at the base of Half Nelson in Squamish)
Final reminder that we will be CLOSED Sunday and Monday for Easter. We will be back Tuesday the 29th!
Happy Easter from the entire Velocity Cycles team!
Scott bikes and Fox Racing Suspension have upped the game with their new release 0f the NUDE Shock!
Scott writes – “Our new FOX Nude is the result of our successful partnership with FOX. The Nude project is a combination of both, SCOTT’s unique patents and technology as well as FOX’s suspension performance and experience. The goal was to create a rear shock that gains maximum performance in every riding situation while remaining lightweight. The FOX Nude works exclusively with our patented TwinLoc system and comes stock on both 27.5″ and 29″ versions.
This new shock is a completely new development with the most advanced air spring and damping system. It features positive air volume micro-adjust with replaceable volume reducers custom tuned for each model and size. Both travel modes have separate damper settings relative to their travel length and effective forces. When collecting data for the new shock project, we also calculated rider input data, including forces such as the rider’s gyro-scoping pedal stroke and its’ effects on the suspension. We simulated a rider’s pedaling and jerky motions made while pedaling or clearing obstacles, and measured their influence on the suspension. Many other designs assume that a rider is static and coasting, or they only include acceleration forces on the suspension and drivetrain. We are more concentrated on suspending the movement of the rider instead of negating pedaling forces. The FOX Nude features a low profile rebound control and mode control pulley for uninterrupted access to water bottles. The lightest FOX Nude shock weight(6.5×1.5″) is 260g.” On their website.
Let us know what you guys think of this cool new technology!
Just a reminder that Monday, February the 8th is Family Day here in BC, so we will be CLOSED as we will be out riding or visiting with family! Maybe even riding with family.
We will be back on Tuesday the 9th.
We here at Velocity Cycles have some exciting news regarding the 2016 BMX season!
As BMX has sprouted enormously in the last few years, we are proud to announce that we are now a YESS BMX dealer!
Yess BMX has released three new bike frames in time for 2016. Type 0 frame is their lower end bmx frame, for people looking for the hottest deal. Type X frame is their mid range frame, and their Elite World Cup frame is their highest one available.As they offer these three new models as frame only, they can also offer a build kit for them for some extra moneys. What makes the frame only deal so great is that if you already have a wicked pile of parts on your BMX rig, then you can just swap them over for the ultimate baller machine! We are beyond stoked to carry them this season, along with Redline and SE Racing
Just in time for the holly-daze some sweet dirtjumpers from our pals at NS Bikes
