New ERIK’S Store Opening in West Des Moines, Iowa!

ERIK'S West Des Moines Is Now Open!

ERIK’S is excited to announce the opening of a brand new shop at 950 1st Street in West Des Moines, Iowa – opening Friday, May 14 at 11 am!

“Rassy’s Bike Shop, currently at 301 Grand Ave in West Des Moines, has been powered by ERIK’S for a few years. We are rebranding to ERIK’S to better integrate this store with the rest of ERIK’S shops. Customers will continue to get the same excellent service from the same great team but in a brand-new shop!” ~Erik Saltvold, Owner

The city of West Des Moines purchased the current Rassy’s location as part of its plans to widen Grand Avenue beginning this spring. This inspired ERIK’S to reimagine its presence in the West Des Moines community. We’ll not only continue to offer an awesome selection of high-quality bicycles and bike gear, but our new expanded shop will allow us also to sell skis, snowboards, and an assortment of winter gear, plus skateboards, scooters, and longboards.

ERIK’S was founded by Erik Saltvold in his parents’ barn in Richfield in 1977 when he was 13 years old. Erik opened his first storefront in the city when his business grew too big for the barn. ERIK’S has operated in a few different locations in Richfield throughout the years.

ERIK’S has the largest selection of bikes in the Midwest. We partner with great bicycle brands such as SpecializedAventonGoCycleDiamondback, and Haro to bring a fantastic selection of cycling products to riders. From mid-October through February we stock an unbelievable selection of snowboards, skis, and winter apparel from BurtonK2Salomon, Helly Hansen686SpyderCapita, and more. ERIK’S is a recognized industry leader with 40+ years history of operational excellence. 

We can’t wait to help you out with all of your biking needs at our new West Des Moines location!
