The Republic Bicycles of Brackendale was founded in 2007. It all started in the back of a small barn in the neighbourhood and, with the support of the community, it became the amenity it is today: located at Squamish’s trailhead, beside a coffee shop, a restaurant, and equipped with a bike washing station. Just a little past the half-point of the Whistler Grandfondo.
Deeply rooted in Squamish, we are devoted to giving back to a community that has given us so much; from raw building materials, to skills to upcycle and handbuild the store they wanted to have. Because of that, we are proud to be your locally owned shop and offer big city variety and quality, with small town friendliness.
We are unprejudiced and will look after any type of bicycle. We are acutely aware that when you trust us with the maintenance of your bicycles, you are entrusting us with a big part of your life, and we match that responsibility with overkill standards. Likewise, you won’t get any pressure from our sales staff; we know every purchase is a major household decision and we want to help you find what is right for you.
Of course, we are bike nerds, but we are first and foremost, good people, members of this beautiful community. Read what people have to say about us, or just come and visit.
