About - Our Store

Why did you open this business in the first place?

Owning a bicycle store is all Mike has ever wanted to do. Dating back to January 1996, Schwinn Cyclery Inc. opened in Fort Myers. Fort Myers Cyclery was a vision Mike had as a high quality bicycle store, more like a bike boutique, where all cyclists could get a well-built bicycle–a machine not a toy–to suit your riding style and all the accessories you needed to support your ride. The store has become a home for our customers and visiting cyclists where they can drop in and chat about their ride, discuss techniques, the latest products, or just swap stories. Our mechanics and sales staff love to talk bikes. They ride fast with the “roadies”, rough with the mountain bikers, and socially with SWFL Critical Mass and their neighbors. They’ve raced, toured cross country, and taken children from training wheels to two wheels. They’ve been certified in helmet fitting, bike fitting, and safety education. They’ve fallen and gotten back up to spin those cranks again. They even have children who’ve competed in triathlons. Fort Myers Schwinn is the store that will always stand behind its product and service, and get you back in the saddle as quickly as possible.

What makes your store different?

We are a family store. We greet you when you walk through our doors and treat you like extended family as you come back for service, accessories, or bike talk. We won’t pressure you to buy what we need to sell, but WILL help you get what YOU WANT. We are dedicated to helping every person who wants to ride get on the best bike for their ride. Regardless of your goal–fun, fitness, improved mobility, transportation, touring, racing, neighborhood riding–we have the bike for you. Regardless of your condition–overweight, disabled, cross training, competitive, balancing on 1 to 4 wheels–Fort Myers Schwinn will get you spinning those cranks. We offer the best service in Southwest Florida. No one builds a better wheel than store owner Mike! He has a following from across the country for wheel building. We also offer next day service. Bring your bike in today, we’ll have it ready to ride tomorrow (or our next business day). We will custom fit a bicycle or trike to fit your needs, whether it’s for ergonomics, cross training, comfort with a prosthetic limb, or post surgery rehabilitation.

What types of bikes can they find in the store?

Fort Myers Cyclery has only the highest quality bicycling machines–NO department store knock offs! Bicycles at Fort Myers Cyclery are well designed machines with mechanical parts that last. They are quality controlled, safely built, and fine tuned. That means your Schwinn Signature, Cannondale, GT, Catrike, or Jamis will last longer, fit better, pedal easier, and give you the smoothest of rides. Bikes prices haven’t increased exponentially like bread or a night on the town, so you are getting a bargain when you buy from Fort Myers Cyclery! We offer a complete line of bicycles and accessories for babies through seniors. Children can start out in baby seats or trailers attached to Mom or Dad’s bike and progress to their own bicycle at age 2. We carry a complete line of single speed bikes for kids from training wheels to two wheels, plus BMX race bikes and Freestyle bikes. We also have multi-speed bikes and unicycles with 20″ and 24″ wheels.

For adults and adult sized kids we have neighborhood bikes, race bikes, and everything in between. We have styles that can take you off-road or on. Mountain bikes come in many styles starting with the basics, graduating to fatter tires, bigger tires, hardtail or full suspension frames. Some are great on the straightaways; others excel on the turns. We have road bikes with entry level frames and components graduating up to full carbon frames and top of the line Shimano components for the road racer or triathlete.

Most adults just want a comfortable ride, to be seated upright, and to have fun riding for a few minutes to an hour at a time. We have our comfort series bikes for that! If you like the Trek Townie, you will love Schwinn’s Sivica! Schwinn’s Signature Sivica combines the comfort of a cruiser tire with a super soft saddle, and a frame designed to give you the right leg extension when pedaling with the security of putting your feet on the ground while still sitting on the seat.

Of course we carry the standard cruiser line in varied frame sizes, steel or aluminum. And if you’re looking for nostalgia, ONLY Schwinn has been building cruisers for 100 more years than any other brand. Schwinn Signature offers some retro styles of cruisers, as well as the contemporary aluminum frame and components. If you want to compare, we offer Jamis Earth and Boss Cruisers–the most rust resistant cruisers on the market today!

The comfort hybrid bikes come in two tire sizes–wide 26″ or narrow 28″–with shocks, upright seating positions, multiple frame sizes, multi-speeds, and colors. Many of these bikes come with the newer disc braking system. Some have a great crossover tire for transitional ease between pavement and dirt.
