New Shop Hopes To Make Downtown Everett More Bike Friendly

Bayside Bikes

Eric Smith just opened Bayside Bikes in downtown Everett.

“Everett is already bike friendly,” said Eric Smith. “I hope opening downtown can make it even friendlier.” Smith is the owner-operator of Bayside Bikes which just opened at 2707 Colby Avenue in the Key Bank Building. Born and raised in Everett, Smith says he’s been working on bicycles since he was 14 years old. “I started working at Tim’s on Broadway every summer while I also worked at the Everett Silvertips team store during hockey season,” Smith added. “I love Everett, know what I wanted to carry and thought, why not work for myself?” Smith tells that he offers a little bit of everything for the bike owner including sales, full service, repair and even rentals. He hopes to have his rental bikes in the store within the next couple of weeks. They’re local Raleigh bikes from Kent and he plans on offering them for lunch rides, an hour rental or on a daily basis. He has bikes for every level of rider from a beginner who wants a “comfort” bike to the experienced off road enthusiast. Prices for his bikes range anywhere from four hundred dollars into the thousands. Every bike sold comes with a year of free service and a free tune up to adjust cables, spokes and other parts that need attention once the bike has been broken in. He also carries children’s bikes and yes, even training wheels. There’s a full line of helmets and accessories. He said one of the thing he likes about his location is there’s an open area right next to the shop where people can test ride and see how well the bike fits.
