Our Story

You are at the center of our story...our customer. Our goal is to make you happy by connecting you to the exact bike you want.

We have been selling all things cycling since 2001. We opened as on an online retailer and soon became a local bike shop as well (more about that later). We love to be a part of the interconnectedness of the web and the information that flows freely and quickly. Our daily tasks in the office line up with our vision, which is to use the web to connect our customers to exactly what they are looking for. Sometimes that means, the bike. Often we have found that our customers are also looking for the inspiration, the speed, the competition, the camaraderie and the beauty of well made things; all of which go along with the bike.

What does a regular Monday morning look like here at Glory Cycles? First things first, lots of music and coffee. Then on to analyzing sales, looking at what’s hot and new, blogging, reviewing, building, selling, reaching out to customers, video creation and editing and then perhaps a ride squeezed in somewhere.

From opening the shop doors to closing down our computers, you are the center of everything we do.

The Glory Cycles showroom is in downtown Greenville, South Carolina. Right in the heart of the coolest cycling town on the East Coast. Let’s say what we are not: we are not a big box store oozing with inventory that we have months ago decided to sell you. We are a web boutique connecting you to exactly what you want. What makes us unique is the blending of web power and local bike shop service into daily operations. Our web office is in the back and the showroom/workshop in the front. The workshop doubles as our web studio for photos and video reviews.  Come in and see us. Even better, come in and let’s go for a ride on the Swamp Rabbit Trail that is located at our doorstep. 

Why Glory? Because we are a lot like you. We love to ride, we appreciate a good deal and we expect to be treated right. We take the time needed to provide world-class customer service on the phone, in person and via email. We ride the product we sell and we are true cycling experts. We understand that our client’s best interests are the same as ours and we look forward to working with you on your passion. Cycling.
