Opening a bicycle shop in the freight room of a railroad depot built in 1896 is an exciting venture. The history is strong at the Victorian style Katy Depot in downtown Sedalia, Missouri and is located on the Katy Trail State Park.
Champion bicycles owner, Steve Champion is looking forward to being part of the historic site. The shop provides bicycle rentals, full service on all makes and brands, recycled bicycles for purchase and new parts and accessories. Vintage and classic refurbished bicycles have their own history. You will find bikes here from the 1960s up to the 2000s, such as mountain, hybrid, road, touring and cruiser rides. Brands such as Raleigh, Trek, Specialized, GT, Diamondback and Schwinn are featured. All bikes include a 30-day warranty. Trade-ins are also accepted. Repairs are a key element to the business since the Katy Trail is ten feet from the door. Quick turnaround on flat tires and adjustments get our customers back on the road. Drinks and snacks are also available.
Champion bicycles came about from 15 years of experience. Steve is a factory-trained mechanic and has supported sales and co-managed bicycle shops in St. Louis. More recently, he had the opportunity to take part as a mechanic for the “Tour De Grove” sanctioned bicycle race
in downtown St. Louis.
Come by and test ride a bicycle and meet Steve and
