Practical Cycle has provided my business(Pizza Rock) with Electric Bikes and Service since we started our bike delivery program. Their focus on our service has been simply to get our delivery program as close to perfect as possible! This includes special orders, repairs and scheduled maintenance on our 2 electric delivery bikes and Worksman Cycle.. I am confident that anyone who walks in to this amazing bike shop in Old Sacramento will be thrilled with the selection, service and personal attention...

Great local bike shop offering bikes you can't find in other shops. Like the name says these bikes are practical. When is the last time someone got groceries on a carbon fiber Trek road bike??? Not me I got a Yuba from Practical Cycle and it is awesome!!

My favorite local bike store. This is one of the few stores in Sacramento that carries useful bikes. In fact they specialize in these bikes and have a wide selection of commuters, trikes, cargo bikes, ect.. in stock. You won't find any road bikes here. They also carry a wide array of accessories for commuters and cargo haulers alike. All the folks in this store are very knowledgeable about the bikes they carry - most (if not all) are commuter cyclists themselves. Everyone here will take the time to help you find the right bike - test rides, numerous questions, and browsing are welcomed and encouraged. Follow-up service is also excellent.

After test riding a Juiced Rider ODK in San Diego a year ago, it was really the only choice for us, wanting a car replacement. By the time we were ready to buy, Practical Cycle had become a distributor. So glad, as we try to buy as local as possible. Both Tim and Cassidy were great help in our purchase. They had us try a few brands, but the ODK was still top for our purposes. Pros: Low center of gravity (helps with load carrying) Low step through (again, helps when rear rack is loaded) Cruise Control (wouldn't live without it) Powerful geared motor (500watts, for hills and quick pick-up) Easy to mount trunks/panniers etc. Straight forward controls (LED's, etc) Front Disc Brake Battery (48v Lithium Ion should prove to last) 3 Speed Nexus rear hub (built like a tank, and keeps a perfect cadence for some cardio effect) Included kick-stand has proven to be quite substantial Minor but cool feature is due to 20" wheels and long wheelbase. You can back it up with kickstand down and crank doesn't hit the stand. It helps a lot when moving out of small places. We got 35 miles out of one charge, but that was with substantial wind moderate hills, and stop and go. Most days I commute 15-20 miles and that knocks it down only one LED. So good, we bought another one. Cons: 20" wheels make for a rougher ride than cruiser or mtn bike styles. Rear brake (caliper) wears quickly, and not nearly as efficient as the front disc brake. I read it was a limitation of the Nexus hub. Pads are cheap though. Highly recommend both Practical Cycle and ODK, a good pairing. Service has been excellent. As for the bikes, it's rare that we don't get favorable comments by passers by when out riding.

We special ordered a Worksman Trike and the experiance was exceptional. Practical Cycle was the best and we will go to no one else for our service or accessories. The customer service is outstanding and product knowledge and help perfect. Prices are fair and reasonable and the overall experience worth repeating and having all of our friends buy or rent from them. WELL DONE!!!

My husband bought an electric motor conversion kit for his bike. They installed it and had it ready to go in a day. It has been the best thing for him as we have many hills near our home and it makes it possible for him to get out and get some exercise. Without the motor he would not be able to ride his bike as the hills are too much for him (he has parkinson's disease). The staff is so friendly and informative, they it a pleasure to shop there. I would definitely purchase another bike from them.

We are so proud of the amazing work Liz Canning is doing to promote cargo bikes! We just backed the Less Car More Go Kickstarter! Take a look, you might even see some familiar faces.

The risk of serious injury and death rise sharply with increased speed. Slow down and enjoy the ride.
