Get Serious About Your Cycle at Victory Bicycle Studio

Posted by Holly Whitfield | September 23rd 2010 2781 0

It’s a little strange to walk into a bicycle shop that’s only got a few bikes in it. That’s the case at Victory Bicycle Studio, a brand new shop in Cooper Young.

Victory Bicycle Studio, Memphis, Tenn.

Most of the action in the shop takes place on a small raised platform in the corner of the shop where bicycles are custom fitted to order. Shop co-owner Robert Taylor has more than 15 years of experience fitting cycles to riders’ needs.

Victory deals in custom bicycles that are perfect for cycling enthusiasts, racers and hardcore commuters. The walls of their small shop are lined with a tightly curated selection of parts and gear. Owner (and semi-pro cyclist) Clark Butcher explains the reason for the highly edited selection – “We’ve got more than 30 years of combined experience with cycling. We’ve tried everything and know what works best.”

If your bike needs a little work before you can take it out on the Greenline, Victory has a small mechanic’s shop in the back of the store.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    I have a boneshaker bike, sometimes called a big wheel bike, which needs repair. It has a bent front wheel. Please let me know if you could possibly repair it.
    Thanks.
    I live in Annesdale Snowden Historic District, and the bike is here.
    Thanks,

  2. Maybe. If the rim is bent probably not. If the wheel is out of true: yes, if the nipples on the spokes will still turn.
