Local bicycle shop celebrating 31 years

Guthrie Bicycles was recently displaced by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation’s four-lane bridge project, but now returns back where it all started in downtown Guthrie.

“After looking for a new location, a storefront became available for rent and the move started in May,” business owner Kent Denham said.

To complete the relocation process, Denham’s original overhead sign was reinstalled at the new shop located at 202 E. Oklahoma.

“I had actually opened in the same building, just down the sidewalk a few steps in 1984, but now occupy the corner (Oklahoma Ave. and Wentz St.) and really enjoy the downtown atmosphere with more walk-by traffic stopping in to shop.”

Guthrie Bicycles is the town’s only bicycle facility.  The store sells used bicycles as well as parts and services for all brands of bikes, no matter where purchased.

Bicycle repairs are the specialty and run the gamut from basic flats to overhauls and restorations.  Specials orders are welcome at Guthrie Bicycles and pick-up and delivery services are readily available.  Custom bike care and repair classes are also offered to customers.

Shop owner Kent Denham has sold many premium quality brands at competitive prices in the Guthrie area.

Denham’s work with bicycle shops began in Oklahoma City in 1970.  With over 40 years of experience in the bicycle business, Denham started a popular repair class, which boasted the fastest filling new classes ever offered at local vo-techs.

The shop is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, call 405-282-8524, or visit www.guthriebicycleok.com.
