COMPANY HISTORY AND INFORMATION
Charles Durst started Durst Cycle in 1935 by selling used bicycles and we have supplied many newspaper carriers with route bikes since 1939.
|We have always been in Urbana, adjacent to the University of Illinois campus.|
|We expanded with a 2nd store in 1970 in Western Champaign to serve the needs of new residential areas.|
|We have dealt in many retail products associated with wheels, including mopeds, wheelchairs, strollers, trailers, skateboards, inline skates and way back in our history...lawn mowers.|
|Currently we offer a wide selection of most types of bicycles, including used bikes, new two wheelers, adult trikes, tandems, unicycles, child joggers, trailers, tandem trailers, recumbents and a complete skateboard department at our Champaign location. Also electric toy trains (at our Urbana location) are sold and serviced since 1947.|
|Antique bicycle restoration service is also available.|
|Service is the bedrock of Durst Cycle in that we "only sell what we can service"|
