We are from Nashville. While passing through Pittsburgh we decided to drop by Bicycle Heaven. My wife and I were not prepared for the emotions we experienced as soon as we passed through the door. I'm... read more »
"WOW" this place ROCKS! If you love vintage bicycles this is the place. There is a large amount a of stingray bikes middle weights and balloon tire bikes (I'm told 3,000 all together ) the owner has a large collection of Bowden space liner bikes do not miss the second floor thats where a large majority of the collection is. If you are looking for bicycle parts or just want to check it out this is a great place run by great people. Andrew Solon Ohio
I brought in a used bicycle and had a tune up. Neil is very considerate and quick. The price was cheap and fair. Would definitely return and the selection of vintage bikes in the museum were cool and awesome.
This bike shop is fantastic! I was looking for an obscure Shimano Positron bike cable for my late 70's Panasonic bike, and found very few options online. Not only did Bicycle Heaven have it one stock, they had a huge selection of them in every length. Craig (the owner) is extremely knowledgeable, and helped me out finding the parts I needed. Prices for new tires and inner tubes were pretty comparable to Amazon. It's great to have the premium of getting it right away, and with an expert confirming I had the right items. I would highly recommend them for parts and repairs, and the museum is worth checking out as well.
Worth the drive from downtown. Very clean and well done. Had an amazing experience at Bicycle Heaven today the place is huge the shear quantity of bikes and bike parts is incredible! Even if you are not an enthusiast you will will still be drawn in. You will want to explore every nook and cranny of the wonderfully laid out museum. Craig the owner and collector is very friendly and will happily answer any questions and show you around the store. Go check it out really will blow you away.
Bicycle Heaven (aka Bicycle Museum) is in a league all its own. We were brought by a local to tour a novel tourist attraction; our visit was not intended to purchase a bicycle or to have one repaired. As such, we cannot rate the latter two functions of this business. The facility is cavernous; every nook and cranny is filled to the max with everything bicycle and then some. Despite the visual cacophony, there is a stylized order to everything, redolent in wit and whimsy. The owner somehow manages to make it all work. For as artifact-crammed as this place is, it is surprisingly clean and orderly—not a speck of dust anywhere. It's kind of a DIY experience, aided by the tips of advice received from other visitors and friends in ones’ own group. We recommend touring the place with a group of friends, who will add to the experience as they discover and call out this place’s many hidden treasures. We were sufficiently impressed with the ground floor, but were encouraged by other guests who advised, “You've got to see the second floor!” On first blush, the second floor appeared to be more of the same from the first floor. That was until we opened the door to "heaven," which we would characterize as an "Alice in Wonderland" experience. We will leave the description at that to avoid spoiling the surprise element. We ended up spending nearly an hour on the second floor, where we were able to chat at length with Bicycle Heaven's owner, Craig Morrow. One could speculate if all things bicycle represent a history worth capturing and preserving, but seeing this rich past out on display is a testament to Bicycle Heaven's place in America's history. Bicycle Heaven operates on a donation basis. We were so impressed by the experience, we gladly made a nice contribution upon exiting.
