Our new store at 100 SE Laurel Street used to be a fitness center. It required a bit of work to make it ready as a retail space.
The first thing we knew had to go was the old check-in counter. The flooring, which was laid out for the old floor plan, also needed to be ripped up to make room for the new. The first few weeks of work focused on opening up the space.

Dave has been unofficially working at Kyle's Bikes since the Ankeny store opened ten years ago. Kyle asked him—along with his wife and tandem stoker, Cindy—to be the leader of the Kyle's Bikes Wednesday Night Ride. They said yes and have been leading the ride since then.
Officially, he has been an employee since the Monday after the 2018 Kyle's Bikes Parking Lot Sale. That's when he began working day-to-day in the store and preparing for the opening of the Waukee location where he will be Waukee Store Team Leader.
As we began planning the opening of our second store in Waukee, Kyle needed an Assistant Team Leader. Because Kyle worked for Jim when they were both at UPS, he knew Jim's character and work ethic. And in the last few years he's seen that Jim likes to help riders both experienced and beginner alike.
We want you to get to know Jim a little better. You can visit him on the weekends now in Ankeny, but when Waukee opens, you can see him nearly any day.
This will give us three ways to serve you: our current store in Ankeny, our new store in Waukee, and online sales at KylesBikes.com.
Plan on visiting us in Waukee in 2019!
