About Bike Tech

Bike Tech was starting in 1996 as Advantage Cyclery went out of business. Started by Troy Meyeraan, Bike Tech carried bike brands such as Specialized, Marin, Mongoose, GT, Bianchi, Serotta, Colnago, and Bontrager through the years.

Ten years later, in 2006, Bike Tech was purchased by current owner Brent Johnson. An UNI alum, Brent graduated in 2002 and went to work in the "real" world. Having worked at bike shops both during and after college, Brent jumped at the opportunity to enter the bike business full time.

You may have seen Brent Johnson on Ragbrai working for Spoken Wheel Cyclery over the last decade.

Since its beginning, Bike Tech has continued to evolve based on customer suggestions, the experiences of Bike Tech staff, and thoughts from our peers in the bicycle retail community. In doing so, we strive to be the best bicycle shop the Cedar Valley has to offer.

Bicycle Friendly

Its no wonder why Cedar Falls has been named a "Bicycle Friendly Community" from the League of American Bicyclists.

You need local advocates pushing for bicycle amenities like trail connections, bike lanes, signage and Share the Road campaigns.

This is where Bike Tech shines. In 2009 Bike Tech was designated as a "Bicycle Friendly Business" by the League of American Bicyclists. Bike Tech is only one of six businesses in Iowa who had received such a designation.


About CVAST

The Cedar Valley Association for Soft Trails (CVAST) is a state of Iowa not for profit dedicated to soft trails located in the Cedar Valley. Our goal is to promote, maintain, and create sustainable soft trails in the area for users of all types and abilities.

Since that time we have established land management agreements with Iowa DNR and Blackhawk County. With an existing network of 'deer trails' we have begun to systematically link areas together while modifying and adding trail to eliminate user conflicts and increase the overall enjoyment of the soft trail system.
