Contact Us

Anyone can buy a bike. We want you to become a cyclist.

Chris, Jim, Nick, and Brooks are all experienced riders and mechanics who love bicycles and the people who ride them.

We regularly organize “fun rides” suitable for various levels of cyclists and riders. Come ride with us!

We service and repair all brands of bicycles – bring us “your tired, your poor, your messed up” bicycles. We also rehab vintage bicycles. Let us make your classic bicycle beautiful again.

We sell a wide array of bicycle parts and accessories – helmets, locks, tubes, tires, baskets, etc. 

We support the local and regional efforts to build a network of recreational trails for the health and wellbeing of the citizens who call Huntington home.

Meet the Team

Nick Hancock

Nick Hancock

Nick Hancock, our resident “dirty boy’” has been an avid mountain biker for over 30 years and raced competitively for 16 of those years.  The State of Indiana Department of Natural Resources has leaned heavily on Nick’s expertise as a Trail Builder and Trail Maintenance Support for three decades. 

Regionally, Nick has been instrumental in developing and maintaining off-road trails at Salamonie and Huntington Reservoirs.  He serves as a member of the Huntington Area Recreational Trails Association Board of Directors.  Nick and his wife, Tam have 10 grandchildren, 4 of which are involved in MTB racing.  He is a collector of 1st generation Cannonade F-series Mountain bikes (the ones with the monoshock, hand-built in Bedford, PA)

Jim Lewis

Jim Lewis

Jim Lewis began cycling as an adult in 2002 as a way to maintain some form of physical fitness.  He is an accomplished tour rider, beginning in 2004 and has logged numerous one/two week tours.  Some of his favorite tour rides include:  The Cady Trail, The Great Allegheny Passage, The C & O Towpath, and the Underground Railroad route from Corydon, Indiana to Ashtabula, Ohio.  His ultimate goal is to do a cross-country tour across the US.  Jim says, “tour riding required me to learn how to maintain my bike, a talent I can apply here at the shop.  I really enjoy helping a person get back on their bike as an adult and enjoy the great activity of cycling.”  Jim is our resident “Bicycle MacGyver” and is known to have repaired flat tires with dollar bills and broken chains with grape vines!  He and his wife, Pam have 13 grandchildren and a spoiled rotten English bulldog, Bryzzo.

Chris Bucher

Chris Bucher

Chris Bucher has been around bikes his entire life and began racing BMX in 1980, competing around Indiana and surrounding states.  He has been working on bicycles for over 40 years, the last 8 as a bike shop service manager providing professional support to cyclists around northeast and north central Indiana.  Servicing and tuning road bikes and mountain bikes is his specialty — with expert skills including internal cabling, hydraulic braking systems, bottom bracket rebuilds, and full-race tunes for event participants.  Chris and his wife, Carolyn have 7 grandchildren and are teaching them all to ride bikes.  He rides thousands of miles a year, in all kinds of weather on his collection of outstanding bicycles.

Brooks Fetters

Brooks Fetters

Brooks Fetters is the shop’s “old school” expert.  He began riding bicycles as a kid (a used Schwinn Panther III) and quit in early adulthood.  As a fat, out of shape adult, Brooks began riding his old 1973 Opaque Blue Schwinn Traveler in 2007.  He quickly embraced cycling as an exercise activity that he “didn’t hate” — as opposed to swimming or running or lifting!  Tour cycling is his favorite style — go slow, but go long.  He has been rehabbing/preserving vintage bicycles since 2008 and has completed over 200 projects.  Brooks and his wife, Barb have 6 grandchildren (all of which ride) and together own the historic Purviance House Bed and Breakfast — just next door to the Huntington Bicycle Shop in the National Register Drover Town Historic District on the south side of downtown Huntington.  They enjoy catering to the needs of Adventure Cycling Association riders who ride past the Huntington Bicycle Shop when riding across the United States on one of the northern tier routes.

Ike

Ike

Ike is the official Huntington Bicycle Shop shop dog — and quite possibly the best known and most liked member of the HBS team.  He loves to meet and greet customers with a friendly “Woof.” 

Ike and Brooks enjoy taking early morning bike rides on (and following) a 1948 Hawthorne Cruiser around the various Huntington recreational trails and historic neighborhoods.  Ike does not have opposable thumbs, so he is no help as a bike mechanic.  However, he does like to chase his red ball with customers and occasionally guards the cash box when he isn’t sleeping on the job.
