Fort Langley Cyclery

We are cyclists. We are brothers – Tim and Jon. Now, we are also bike shop owners, and living in some kind of dream. Tim was a real grinder and Jon used to ride with a triple, but both have been sucked in, from opposite ends of the spectrum, to the allure of the compact crankset. Tim is the mechanic, and Jon is the product guy. We make a pretty good team.

You’ll see our wives around the shop quite often too. It really is a family business. Misty and Alyssa prefer cycling at a much more leisurely pace, and they insist on looking good while riding. Tim and Misty have two daughters, Georgia and Amelia; you’ll probably see them around too. Jon and Alyssa have two boys: Nathan, who’s burning around Fort Langley on his little balance bike; and Elliott, whose general size suggests “track cyclist.”

Contrary to many people’s assumptions, our hired mechanic, Jay, is not actually a brother. He just wears a hat and glasses like Tim. He’s been around for a while now, and has no intention of leaving. He’s also pretty good at what he does, so we’re thinking maybe we should offer him the pledge of brotherhood. Maybe.

Come visit us at the shop and share a cappuccino, or just follow our adventures on the blog or Facebook. Cycling is great. You’ll find out soon enough.

What We Believe
We believe that cycling to work should not require carrying a backpack with clean clothes to change into; nor should a recreational Sunday afternoon ride cause a stiff neck the next morning. Steel is cool, titanium is cooler, but your fast bike should really be carbon. Your arm should not go numb after 20 minutes on a bike. Getting the right bicycle – and getting it fit properly – makes these activities easier and more enjoyable. Getting a bike that looks great is just an added bonus at Fort Langley Cyclery. Your bike should not take a week to fix. And it should be done right the first time.

We believe that cycling is a smart transportation alternative and the easiest way to a healthier planet. This is why we support programs like World Bicycle Relief and why we’re members of the Greater Langley Cycling Coalition.
We also believe that cycling is the most amazing tactical sport ever conceived. Really, it’s not even debatable.
