One of our favorite things about Landis Cyclery is the staff's inverse proportion of knowledge and conceit. That is, the guys and gals who work at Landis know their cranksets from their derailleurs without the accompanying attitude we've found at other bike shops. Being both street- and dirt-friendly cyclists, we have higher-than-average maintenance and upgrade needs. Real-wheel cassettes, new RockShox forks, general repairs and tuneups, tires and tubes, fresh gloves — those sorts of things. We like to visit all four locations, but love the mid-size stand-alone shop at Southern Avenue and the Superstition Freeway best — mainly because it's been there longer than the freeway. In fact, the company was founded in 1912 and is still owned by members of the Landis family (who aren't related to infamous doping cyclist Floyd Landis). With this level of service and community support — the chain supports a number of local cycling events — we expect Landis to be around for another 100 years.
