Fridrich’s is practically an institution in Cleveland.  We started out as a coal and feed store back in 1883, and moved across the street to our current location, here in Ohio City, in the 1890’s.  Since then, we have expanded to become one of the oldest and largest bike shops in the U.S.A.!

Our goal is to provide superior customer service, whether you are looking for a new bike, need a simple repair, or just want to buy an inner tube.  We pride ourselves on having the largest selection of bicycles and parts in northeast Ohio, and our 10,000+ square feet of retail space (and triple that in storage and work areas) makes that possible. 

We are much more than just a store that sells bikes!  We carry retro-styled Radio Flyer tricycles, InStep pedal cars, other kids' items, and wagons from Radio Flyer and Berlin Flyer (still Amish-made in Berlin, Ohio!).  We offer bike rentals and delivery on new bike purchases.  In the winter months, we sell snow goods: plastic and foam sleds, saucers, Flexible Flyer wooden sleds, toboggans, and much more!

We're proud to be a local, successful, family-owned business here in Cleveland, still operated by the grandson of the man that started it over 131 years ago.  Stop by some time to check out our store; we’d be glad to show you around!!

I'm new to biking and to this long-standing local shop. The few times I've been here I've received good service and pricing. I got a rack put on over the back tire, then another time had the front tire/tube replaced. Pricing was very reasonable and each job was done relatively quickly. Understandably, in the summer months it can get busy and there's a wait for walk-in jobs. Everyone at the place seems knowledgeable and friendly with the right recommendations, particularly for novice city riders like me. It never seems like they're trying to sell you things just to turn a buck. I'm glad I live a block away from Fridrich's and will continue to patronize their store as my biking hobby expands. Edit: I want to cite an example of the service here - AFTER I wrote this review, I went over there and told them that I needed pads replaced on the brakes. At a lot of places they wouldn't question it, just say okay, do it and charge you. Instead, the mechanic came out and said, "Your brake pads are fine actually. They just needed adjusted. I saved you $16" --- THAT is customer service!

Doesn't get much better than Fridrich's. I bought my Haro Flightline there and have had work done to it also. They're very professional and knowledgeable. Support a great Cleveland bike shop.

Excellent place to get a bike if you don't want to be pushed or spend $1000. This place gives you a free bike tune up about a month after you buy the bike. I also wanted a different kind of shifters on my bike and they changed them for $25 that day. I have no complaints about this place at all and I shopped around A LOT!

I went to Fridrich's for two bikes for my daughters and i was really impressed! Not only did they have a TON of bikes at GREAT prices but the customer service experience was second to none! My daughters chose two bikes without training wheels. The shop installed them for free and one set even required modification to fit! My daughters are soooooo happy with their first bikes and they are still talking about "the old bike shop downtown." I am so glad i decided i go to Fridrich's instead of buying a bike at WalMart or some other huge bike store chain (they only sell TREK...hint,hint). They have a great selection of styles and prices. knowledgeable, courteous, and HELPFUL staff. This place really goes the extra yard for their customers. SUPPORT LOCAL WHEN THEY SUPPORT THE CONSUMER!

I recently had to take my bike into the shop after an incident that occurred while I wasn't looking. The derailer was bent and twisted as well as the frame. They were very upfront that it wasn't a guaranteed fix. They were all very knowledgeable and friendly, and went out of their way to help me get back on the road. After I picked the bike up, there were a couple things not working properly. They had me bring the bike back in and very promptly corrected and tweaked the problem areas. I am so grateful and appreciative for everything. Very good place with very good people!

A real gem of a bike shop in Cleveland, excellent advice from the employees as always. Its not just geared toward hardcore hipster bikers. They have plenty of used stuff for the thrifty. Only down side is when going to the repair area you may have to wait.. but enjoy your stay & window shop while you are there as they have a excellent selection of goods. Prices are reasonable if you choose to have them fix or they will give you installation tips if you choose to do it yourself. I would not trade it for the walmart type experience for the world. They have items for sale as low as $0.25 freaking love that! MAKE SURE TO BRING YOUR KIDS SO THEY CAN HAVE A TASTE OF HOW A REAL LOCAL SHOP SHOULD BE RUN!! I really hope this place never closes not many stores left like it. (sorry about your experience Cliff **see below post** but i have a bike from a major retailer that did the exact same thing to my son -less the broken arm. Given most of all bicycle products are probably Chinese so i blame ourselves for wanting to pay a reasonable price for a kids bike.) Im sure if you personally built the bike from high quality components you would see that happen. We have a Hoffman bike that we aquired and built up as a spare/backup that is without a doubt 10 fold better quality than the bike my boys currently ride. -dont blame them they dont make the bikes.

I bought a bike for my son and the tire locked up two weeks after I bought it causing my son to fly over the handle bars and breaking his arm. When I took it in for repairs, I kept getting it back with the parts falling off. I will never buy a bike from there again.
Response from the owner - a year ago
I am very sorry that you had problems with your son's bike. I can't imagine but that we could have gotten everything fixed properly, or just exchanged the bike you got for a new one.
