The Cosmic Wheel was established in 1976 by John Russo. John started apprenticing at his friend’s bicycle shop in the early 70's to learn bicycle repair so he could prepare for a cross-country ride. After some time wrenching at his friends shop, his friend mentioned John was a natural and should open his own shop. John friend knew of a small place in Bogota that was for rent. So in mid-1976 John finalized the lease, brought in some bike parts and got The Cosmic Wheel up and running. Over the years John realized two things; one was the rent at his small shop was way too much for its size and secondly was that the shop had out grown the small place where The Cosmic Wheel had started and run for 21 years. So John made a smart move by buying the building of the old Park Cycle where lots of locals bought their Paris Sports and was already a known bicycle shop location. The move to Ridgefield Park was in 1996 and we have been here ever since. We are expert mechanics and experienced sales people that custom fit every bicycle to the customer to ensure an enjoyable cycling experience. Thirty-five years of experience and dedication means we have the ability to make sure that every person is getting the best prices possible on whatever they are looking for. We are a Family and Road shop primarily but also carry a few mountain bikes and love every type of bike, and every type of cyclist. P.S. Although John Russo has helped countless riders do cross country rides he himself has never been able to do it. John has kept himself busy making sure YOUR bike is in top shape, ready for around town, or however far you’re Cosmic Wheel will take you!
