Since 1965 The Madison Bicycle Shop has been New Jersey's premiere TREK, Gary Fisher Signature Series, MirraCo, Fuji, Torker, and Redline bicycle dealer-just to name a few! We also stock and special order brands from top major manufacturers such as Thule, Topeak, Louis Garneau, Park Tools, Bontrager, and many more. We even stock some of today's best skateboarding brands such as Element, Spitfire, Zoo York, Birdhouse, Termite, World Industries and lots more to chose from. We stock the best and we can get the rest!
The Madison Bicycle Shop was founded in 1965 by the Markovich family who converted it from a Ford dealership that had been selling Model T's off our showroom floor circa 1924 when the building that we're currently in was erected and attached to Wilson's Garage. In 1980, Sam "Jiggs" Mantone and his wife Fran purchased the business from the Markoviches and ran it successfully until 2001 when Salvatore Piccolo, a Madison native and current resident who had worked for Jiggs and Fran for fourteen years as their right-hand man, took over the operation and turned it into what it is today.
Throughout the decades, The Madison Bicycle Shop has undergone a considerable evolution. It started out as a very "mom and pop" shop, supplying mostly Schwinn bicycles and was even named "The Madison Schwinn Cyclery" for a time. Today it carries a much larger array of bike brands and many more of today's top names in cycling. Our staff is completely knowledgeable regarding how to fit and outfit a rider to and with anything from the most basic of children's accessories to the highest end professional equipment in the industry.
We also supply over thirty-five police departments and law enforcement agencies with clothing, bikes, and repairs. We offer maintenance seminars in our store as well as on location at the Morris County Police Academy and elsewhere. We were profiled in Bicycling magazine as the official shop of their "BikeTown USA" campaign. We are also the go-to shop for massive charity bike builds as coordinated by the Jersey Cares organization and we've been the sponsor of many fund raising group rides and road and mountain bike races. We are also the creators of Fit Kids Smile More, a youth-oriented lecture series and cycling achievement contest that was prominently featured many times on News 12 New Jersey and Garden State Green.
The list of cool stuff that we've been a part of just goes on and on, but what we're most proud of is the fact that The Madison Bicycle Shop has never lost that "mom and pop" feel that a customer experiences as soon as he or she walks through our door. Stop by today and feel it for yourself! We're looking forward to helping you out with all of your cycling needs.
