ERIK’S Announces Purchase of BikeSource Kansas City Locations

ERIK’S is excited to announce an agreement with BikeSource to purchase their two Kansas City locations. The two BikeSource Kansas City locations will join the ERIK’S collection of 24 locations in Minnesota and Wisconsin. BikeSource will continue to independently operate their existing locations in Denver, Columbus and Charlotte.

“Get your Bike happy on, Kansas City! Everyone at ERIK’S is passionate about cycling and providing outstanding service! We are excited to work with BikeSource staff and customers to make this a smooth transition for all. ERIK’S will continue the legacy of great service to cyclists in the Kansas City area.  ERIK’S offers a great selection of product at an unbeatable value to cyclists of all skills and riding styles! It’s everything you loved about BikeSource, with even more!” said Erik Saltvold, Founder and Owner of ERIK’S.

The two locations that are part of the agreement are the Leawood (3701 W. 95 Street) and Overland Park (11500 W. 135 Street) stores.  The existing staff will continue to manage the stores.

ERIK’S was founded by Erik Saltvold in his parents’ barn in 1977 when he was only 13-years-old and he still owns 100% of the company today. ERIK’S has grown into a collection of award winning stores in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and soon to be Kansas! ERIK’S has been recognized as America’s Best Bike Shop, and has won several Top Retailer and Gold Star Retailer awards from Bicycle Retailer And Industry News and local media.

ERIK’S partners with great bicycle brands such as Specialized, Raleigh, Bianchi, Pivot, PureFix, State and Haro to bring a fantastic selection of cycling products to riders. ERIK’S is a recognized industry leader with award-winning service and a 39-year history of operational excellence. We look forward to bringing even more selection of the products you love to the Kansas City cycling community.

We believe in supporting the sport and helping enhance Kansas City cycling by partnering with local cycling groups and advocacy organizations.

We look forward to meeting you at ERIK’S in Kansas City!
