Our Story

Ever had an experience buying a new bike that was less than perfect?  Our founder Shawn did.   He was also tired of sitting in an office all day wishing he could be on his bike.  He knew he could make a better experience for others too.  That's when the idea of Oxygen Bike Co begun.   Soon, a customer-focused business plan was created, a depletion of life savings and some awesome relationships with the best brands in the business synchronized perfectly.  A year later, Oxygen Bike Co was open.  Total sales on our first day was $6...a single tire tube.  It was daunting, but we were committed.

That was 2011 and we've already expanded into our second store that is triple the size of the original.   The best products, awesome staff, thousands of loyal customers and fantasic reviews on Google and Facebook - we must be doing something well.  And we'd like to thank YOU for the success.

Our Management Team

Shawn Fitz - Chief Bicycle Officer

Marketing, Sales and Spinning guy.   Shawn founded Oxygen Bike Co to offer a better experience to cyclists in his Toronto hometown.  He doesn't want the shop to be big. He just insists that it's an awesome place to buy a bike, go for a spin class or just hang out and talk bikes.

Favorite Bike: 2022 Norco Sight C2 VLT -  "Ok, so it's got a little motor in it...I'm not 25 anymore".

Chris Dring - Store Manager

Chris does everything.  He's the guy that makes it all happen when customers really need it done.  From sales to ensuring the Service Dept is running smooth, he overlooks everything.

Favorite Bike:  His Norco Search Gravel bike.  Perfect for long rides on less than perfect roads..

Kevin Sutton - Service Manager/Head Tech

If you want the guy who is actually working on your bike, it's likely Kevin.   He personally works on the majority of our repair bikes and supervises the entire team.  If for any reason your bike is late, rumour has it that a 6pk of cheap beer moves you up in the priority list.  Jokes people...jokes!

Favorite Bike: 2022 Trek Roscoe.  "Real Riders suffer on Hardtails".

Policies, Terms and Conditions

We know that repeat customers make for a sustainable business.  So every policy we have is designed around giving you an awesome experience.

Lifetime Tune-Up Program

We’ve quickly become famous for our FREE LIFETIME tune-up program.  It works like this:  Buy any new bike from our store and we will provide no-charge brake adjustments, gear adjustments and tire inflation for as long as you own the bike.  Yes, you read that correctly and it's legit.   By servicing the bicycle frequently, we can provide early diagnosis of anything it may require in the future and it's something other shops don't do.  We rock. We know.

Lowest Price Guarantee, Currency and HST

We will match or beat any Ontario authorized dealer’s advertised price on the identical make, model, year, size and colour of anything in our store.  It has to be the exact same item and the advertiser needs to have it in-stock and available for sale.  All prices are in Canadian Dollars (CAD) and exclude HST (HST 827 136 912).

  • Must provide original copy of receipt upon return of bicycle.
