UPDATED — Cycle Gear, which bills itself as the country’s leading retailer for motorcycle accessories and apparel, is coming to Wichita.
The chain is taking 3,100 square feet at 3236 N. Rock Road, which is in the same center as Buffalo Wild Wings.
Don Piros of Landmark Commercial Real Estate and Nathan Farha of NAI Martens handled the deal.
Cycle Gear, which is employee-owned, has 105 stores in 33 states. It has another Kansas store in Lenexa. According to the store’s website, Cycle Gear tries to be involved with riding in the communities where it has stores, such as sponsoring events.
The almost 40-year-old company also likes to be known for 30-day best-price guarantees and hassle-free helmet exchanges.
Via e-mail, company spokesman Johnny Lin says the company is “very excited” about a Wichita store. Lin says it’s “a very vibrant motorcycle market” with more than 20,000 riders.
Look for the store to open in March.
