NEW ONLINE STORE!
The cooler temperatures & beautiful foliage makes up for the shorter days a tiny bit. The loam gets a bit more dank and the mosquitoes & stinging needles calm down. This time of year allows us to reflect on the summer past and remind us how much we are thankful for family , friends & fun on 2 wheels.
While the bike industry is very thankful record sales & massive influx of new riders this spring we are now going into the hangover where there is not much stuff left to sell we hope everyone can hang in there until we get new bikes & goods to keep you on the trails & roadways (not sidewalks please)
2021 shipments should start coming in due time but most likely a bit more slowly then normal as the world shakes off the pandemic (and hopefully not the humans)
VelocityCycles will hopefully be releasing an online shopping site so you can see what we have in realtime very soon. Also right now is an excellent time to bring in a bike for service as our wait times are finally starting to subside.
Most bike manufactures will be updating their websites soon to showcase the new bikes. we have seen some sneak peeks and are very stoked for the next years crop of 2 wheelers
Thanks again for your patience & understanding this summer and we look forward to our future & continued friendships!
what a summer !
most intense one ever !
covid has ravaged the bike industry and we and our suppliers are out of almost everything bicycle related , helmets , tires , tubes , bells, mirrors , comfy seats , deraileurs , brake pads, its been tremendous
we are closed for a couple weeks to hopefully track down some things to sell and mostly maintain our sanity
we are terribly sorry for the inconvenience
be safe , ride safe, have fun! we will be back at it August 4th
We want to thank everyone for being so understanding during these trying times!
we think that BC has done an excellent job keeping covid cases low and you are a huge part of that!
supply chains are very slow and some have stopped altogether so it has been a big challenge
we are working hard to keep everyone rolling and scouting the warehouses for bikes for people but with the china slowdown and state of emergency compounding things it may be a few months before popular bike categories get replenished.
our service shop is extremely busy so please be patient while we get everyone rollling as quickly and as safely as we can .
Thanks again & stay safe everyone!
We are a full service and sales bicycle store in Walnut Grove, Langley. Having just celebrated our 15!! 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.
With COVID-19 top of mind want to assure you that we are monitoring the situation very closely. Our bike service is currently experiencing a high demand for repairs as it the only thing we all can do to get some exercise. We will be concentrating on just bike repairs at the moment. We will be making a few changes to keep everyone safe. There will be no scooter testing. No trying on clothing, gloves or helmets. Thanks for your support and co-opoeration.

THE NEW 2017 HAVOC DESCENDANT SCOOTERS IN STOCK “JAI WALKER ” SIGNATURE EDITIONS
Well it seems that Shimano is online in a big way and making it way more affordable then ever for people to upgrade their bikes. Often it is way cheaper then SHIMANO Canada will sell to us so it doesn’t make sense to keep everything in stock. we do keep the Essentials like bottom brackets , cables , chains, cassettes and a few derailleurs and shifters in stock to keep everyone going in a hurry. but if you do decide to get the big upgrade/ sidegrade or have compatibility questions please call or come in with your box of crc stuff and we can professionally install it and make it work the way it was meant too! Whether it is ROAD , Mountain < internal , external cable , electric or wireless we can help!
(ps big Props to SRAM for keeping it real and pulling out of race to the bottom mega corporations run by robots websites)
We will be closed Monday October 10th for Thanksgiving.
Happy Thanksgiving from the Velocity Crew.
Just to let everyone know, the shop will be closed SEPTEMBER 5TH 2016 for Labor day! We’ll be back at it on Tuesday the 6th.
Reminder that this upcoming Monday, August 1st, is BC Day! We will be closed here at the shop, and back at wrenching on the following Tuesday. We hope our customers are going to take the day to ride some trails and soak in the astonishing scenery our beautiful province offers us.
In honor of all the Devinci Troy’s we’re building up right now with sick custom kits, here’s a sick vid on Devinci Troys.
Just a reminder that this Friday we will be CLOSED for Canada Day!
Our team will be back in the shop Saturday. Â We hope everyone has a rad long weekend!
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!
20 year old cat with a rasta hat on a bike
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,Â 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!Â
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 TR500Â and he has loved them from the start. Insane bikes, beautifully made, and the performance is amazing.
(To clarify, asÂ the photo is a bit hard to read, Saturday April 23rd will be at the base of Fromme Water Tower on the North Shore.Â 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 riderâ€™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.Â 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 SEÂ Racing
Just in time for the holly-daze some sweet dirtjumpers from our pals at NS Bikes
