Crankers Cycling named best bike shops for 2016

Shops were asked to fill out a detailed application describing what sets them apart from the average retailer. Mystery shoppers then evaluated the business in more detail by visiting the store, reviewing the website and contacting the shop by phone to assess the performance from a consumer’s perspective. The recipients of the America’s Best Bike Sops title not only offer great shopping experience and expert staff, but they are also rated on their support for their communities as well as support for bicycle advocacy both locally and nationally.
