Here's what a recent customer had to say about his experience in our stores:
I have visited just about every bike shop in Medina and Cuyahoga county, have surfed the cycling web sites for countless hours and read cycling magazines every chance I get. Century Cycles in Medina is, without a doubt, THE BEST BIKE SHOP in Northeast Ohio. Adam, Tom, Keith, Drew, Petch and the boys are equipped with superior knowledge, totally committed to excellent customer service, and are always willing to go far beyond the normal "call of duty" when it comes to solving every challenge I have encountered with either my bike or any cycling products.
Besides all the above, it's just fun to stop and visit for awhile. It's good to have such a bike shop so close to home. -- Ray in Brunswick
"Adjusting" Flat Bars - Flat handlebars may seem non-adjustable. But, if yours are too wide, they can be cut to customize fit and feel. Usually, riders who enjoy demanding, technical trails appreciate a little additional width (24 to 27 inches), especially when using dual-suspension frames. All-round riders prefer a more standard width of about 22 inches. If yours are too wide, it's easy enough to shorten them. Measure carefully to ensure you leave room for all the parts that fit on the handlebar ends (it's best to remove 1/2- to 3/4-inch sections and see how the bar feels). Riser bars are also available, which are models that slope upwards on the ends to provide less bend in your back when you lean forward to grab the grips. Many off-roaders find that riser bars are just the ticket for a more comfortable position.
