Our History

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"
Currently managed since 1977 by Ronald W. Durst, son of the founder.
