After nearly 5 years in the Dome District, Tacoma Bike is moving house.
The Puyallup Ave store will be wound down in December and we will open the doors of 3012 6th Ave, next to the Tacoma Food Co-op, in January 2014.
It is an exciting and busy time for us. We’d like to thank you all for your ongoing support of Tacoma Bike and hope you’ll enjoy the store-wide sale we have over the next few months to get ready for the move. Sale prices are good Downtown and at the Proctor store with the largest selection Downtown.

Our newest Proctor-Shop-Fella Ben has this to say about our newest trail bike from Rocky Mountain, the Altitude:
New for 2013 comes Rocky Mountain’s new flagship trail killer, the Altitude 27.5. Available in both carbon and alloy frame options, this is a one-bike-quiver that keeps the ascents quick and efficient without sacrificing on the ride back down. The Altitude is sure to help you tackle that next Enduro race or just smoke your friends back to the trailhead. The Altitude has been selling out like hotcakes all season, but you can still find it at Tacoma Bike.
Tacoma Bike has been selected to be the Supporting Bike Shop on the Courage Classic 2013. We’ll be helping those of you who put together a Mary Bridge donation to enjoy the ride without mechanical problems. We’ll have mechanics at each stop, as well as sag wagons and on-ride mechanical help. We’d love to hear from you about what we can do to help make this the best ride of the year.
As always, for questions or comments, call or stop by the shop!
