In the late 1999’s Full Cycle’s Hill store had grown to be one of the best known bicycle retailers in the country, with an emphasis on service and providing an encouraging, friendly environment. Our service staff had such a reputation that at one point 6 of the top 10 US mountain bike race teams had a Full Cycle mechanic. The staff had grown and one of the new employees was Kaj Gronholm. Kaj worked in sales from 1995 to 2000, when he left to get his MBA at CU.
By 2005 Tom Morris and his partner, Tom Noyes were ready for new challenges, but wanted Full Cycle to continue in good hands. Kaj approached the owners to see if they were interested in selling. They liked the idea of having someone who understood the Full Cycle history and had the passion to keep it great. In April of 2005 Kaj & Karli Gronholm purchased Full Cycle.
In 2006, Full Cycle expanded and opened a new store on 18th and Pearl in Boulder. It is larger than the Hill and is able to offer road and mountain bikes, as well as commuting, comfort and kids bikes.
