October 26, 2018 – Infinite Cycles, one of Utah’s leading Cannondale dealers announced yesterday that they will be closing their doors by November 10, 2018 after 11 years of business. The company at one point had three locations in Riverton, Lehi/Highland, and Cottonwood Heights. The Cottonwood Heights location closed last year, and the Lehi/Highland location was sold to Hangar 15 Bicycles earlier in 2018.
The following was posted on their Facebook page yesterday:
Dear Friends and Customers:
We regret to announce that after 11 years in business we will be closing our Riverton store location on November 10th. We have enjoyed creating relationships with you, working on your bikes, and we sincerely appreciate your business and support! We began Infinite Cycles in a tiny space while wives worked to help fund the dream. We grew quickly as we connected with the community and then we expanded to other locations. It has been an incredibly fun and rewarding journey.
Why are we doing this?
1. Consumer buying patterns continue to change in the bicycle and other industries – every year people are shopping more online and less in local retail stores, and that’s ok! Don’t we all want more convenience, more selection, and lower prices?
2. Expenses for building overhead and qualified staff have increased dramatically over the years and will continue to rise.
3. The bicycle industry is set to get hit with an additional 25% tariff on many foreign made goods the end of the year which is a little scary. Everything could get significantly more expensive almost overnight!
With these and other factors combined, we have made the difficult decision to close Infinite Cycles. We hope that you understand. Please visit the shop for final service needs, to take advantage of remaining inventory at clearance pricing, or just to give us the opportunity to say, THANK YOU!
Questions and answers will be added to InfiniteCycles.com.
The shop will be open with normal business hours through November 4, followed by hours of 10-5 from November 5-10. After November 5, they will not be taking special orders or repairs. Everything will be on sale.
After the shop closes, Infinite will still be online at https://www.cannondaleexperts.com where one can purchase a variety of Cannondale bikes, gear, specialty parts, clothing, and accessories.
