Pumpkinvine Cyclery was established in 2010 and is located along the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail, a 26 mile Rail-Trial that runs from Shipshewana to Elkhart. We are a full service shop, offering everything from repair to rentals, and a wide variety of new bikes, accessories and apparel.
Why Choose Us?
We are committed to providing the best service around. Whether you’re out to ride for fun, need maximum performance out of your gear, or are looking to dust off the ole’ trusty and get some exercise, we’re here to get you riding.
We service all of our new bikes at no charge for the first year, and offer free lifetime basic adjustments. We carry brands that we are proud of and will stand behind our products, period. We make a conscious effort to carry brands that are working as hard as we are to promote cycling and small business.
Our Kids’ Bike Trade In & UP program is the best around. When you buy a kid’s bike from us you have 4 years to trade it in for a larger size. At that time we will credit you 75% of the original purchase price to use towards a new, appropriately sized bike for your child. No hassle.
We have staff trained in bike fit, to ensure that you purchase a bike that is sized specifically for you.
We love our community and the sport of cycling. Working tirelessly, we promote our existing trails, create new ones and make biking safer and better for everyone.
We hope that you find our staff to be knowledgeable and friendly; and we promise to pack as much of the best stuff available in our little shop, so you don’t have to go anywhere else! Oh, and did we mention? Free coffee. All day!
About Our People
Spencer Short – Owner, Bike Guru
"I’ve been into biking since I was a kid and spent many summers building dirt jumps and riding until dark. I worked for an entire summer mowing lawns to buy my first bike, and still have it hanging up at home. I started working professionally as a bike mechanic in 2004 and knew that I wouldn’t be happy working in any other industry. The opportunity came in 2011 to start my own bike shop, and here I am. I love going into work every single day."
Brittany Short – Owner
"I come from 5 years in retail management and several years in healthcare. Like any other kid I spent most of my summers riding bike everywhere, but it wasn’t until I met Spencer that I really got into the sport (ie. yelling at the TV during the Tour De France). Most of my riding now involves pulling a kid’s trailer or riding with the group on Wednesdays, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I feel fortunate to be doing what I love in my hometown."
