DICK MAUL’S BIKE SHOP IS MOVING!
After 23 years in the same spot on Elm Street, the time has come for us to begin our next chapter.

We hope to make the move as quickly as possible with minimal disruption, and it should take place sometime within the next month. We will still be in Halifax, only about four miles from our current location. We’ll keep you posted on our progress, in the meantime feel free to come visit us in our current location.
Thanks so much for your support over the years, and we look forward to seeing you all in the new shop as soon as it is open!
