Clean Parts, clean planet.

Where you see a clean sparkly bike part, Beehive Bicycles sees an opportunity to make a small difference. No petrochemecles just some happy little micro-organisms eating away the grease and gunk from your bike.

At Beehive Bicycles we like to think about all the little stuff, and how it’s not just about the new gadgets we put on your bike, but how we get things clean and the impact that our business has on the environment. Rather than go down the standard chemical based parts washer route we decided to invest in one that uses microorganisms to eat away the grease and grime from your drivetrain.

It makes us feel good about getting your bike as clean as humanly possible, and not creating all sorts of waste that the world doesn’t need.

The little stuff matters, and we try to make the right choices.

It all began…

This idea…began with lunch with a dear friend.

Sitting on the patio of Caputo’s with a meatball sub, amazing company, and a thought…

“That would be a good place for a bike shop”

I said aloud.

“You should call”

She said.  So I stood up, walked over and in typical fashion, clicked a photo of the number to remind myself to call about the space…

And so began my journey into bike shop ownership.
