Peak Bicycle Pro Shop
42-42 235th Street Douglaston, NY 11363 718.225.5119
Our passion for cycling led us to open Peak Bicycle Pro Shop in 1998 and it is that same passion that fills the atmosphere at the shop.
While discussing the latest features of the newest models we sell, customers also trade stories of their most recent epic ride while their lifetime free adjustments are completed. It's the vibe of the shop that welcomes new customers to talk up bikes and rides with the friendly long standing customers who are eager to fill you in on what this shop is all about.
Customer service is top priority with our skilled mechanics and knowledgeable staff. Not only do we sell a wide variety of mountain, road and hybrid bicycles for the novice to the expert cyclist, we also offer several levels of tune-ups and specialize in complete restoration of classic models. Your favorite old school ride can feel like new without the added pressure of a hard sell. Or we can work with you to custom build the bike of your dreams starting from the frame on up.
You'll also find a full range of quality-brand cycling clothing, accessories, helmets, components, car racks, protective gear, nutritional supplements, tools, etc., here at Peak.
Our entire staff consists of several species of riders from podium scoring road racers and mountain bike racers to downhill riders, cross-country and century riders. "Because We Ride! That's Why." is not only our slogan, it is who we are. Check out our Peak "family" epic rides photos.
The Peak Difference
Free adjustments for life!
Free! You don't get that anywhere else but at Peak. With every new bike purchased, you'll receive lifetime free adjustments! Yes, lifetime! And free! Not just once or for a year, but for life!
That means any adjustment to your brakes, gears, stem, handlebars, seatpost, tire pressure shock and fork air pressure. If you hear a creak or if your chain skipped or if the bike was dropped or if (dare we say it) there was a crash. If your kid grew since you bought the 18" but is not quite ready for the 20", we'll make all the adjustments for free. If you're just taking your bike out of the garage for the first time this year, we'll go over it to make sure it is safe, dialed in and ready to roll. Any time, as often as you like. Free.
It also means that we can bump you up to the front of the repairs line! As the proud owner of a Peak bike, we will complete the service while you wait and get you back out on your ride right away. And did we mention that it is free? Free.

Master Wheel-builder in-house
Building a wheel is a unique in-house feature at Peak and Jerry is our master wheel builder. Performance, strength, lightness, responsiveness and style are just a few of the reasons you may want custom wheels on your ride.
Jerry can assist you in choosing the hubs, rims, spokes and nipples to create your ideal wheel set. Every wheel that we build, we will true it for free, anytime.
Bicycle Fit System
Our mechanics have been trained in the Bicycle Fit System and are qualified to Fit you to find the appropriate bike for your specific measurements, level of fitness and riding style. A thirty minute process, the Fit System helps us determine which bicycle brands have the geometry best suited to you.
If you already own a bike, we can also use the Fit System to make adjustments to create the optimal Fit and performance on your current ride. You may need a longer/shorter reach, to lower/raise the seat or move it forward/back, raise/lower the stem. The proper Fit makes you more comfortable and can help you achieve amazing results.
We have an extensive fleet of road, full-suspension mountain and comfort hybrid bicycles in many sizes for rent at the very reasonable price of $12.50 by the hour or $75.00 for 24 hours. Helmets are included.
Friends or family in from out of town? Come rent some comfort hybrid bicycles and ride right out of the shop to leisurely cruise the scenic bike path along Little Neck Bay. Stop by the Marina snack bar, tour the grounds at historic Fort Totten, take in the sunset over the Throgs Neck Bridge. We also recommend Bethpage Park path and the Wantaugh path to Jones Beach.
For the 5 Boro Bike Tour or those Century rides, our high end road bikes meet your need for speed. Or if you're just not sure if you want to purchase a hybrid or road bike, renting one or both can help you decide which is best for you.
Cunningham Park is right in our backyard and we've got the perfect full-suspension mountain bike rental for you! These bikes are built to take anything the park can throw down. We'll give you directions and a map of the trails from beginner to expert and can provide info on parks and trails from Long Island to Westchester and the Catskills.
