Couldn't ask for more from a bike shop. Mechanics know everything there is to know about bikes and the shop is stocked with pretty much everything you need. We were in Whistler hitting the bike park for 2 weeks and ended up in the shop most days with our own DH bikes and the guys always managed to keep us rolling, smashed mechs, broken wheels and fork seal replacements to name just a few. They've also got a huge rental fleet ranging from entry level kids bikes right up to top spec Downhill race machines and carbon road bikes. They get rented pretty quickly so worth booking them in advance! We rented some Yeti trail bikes to pedal up into the mountains for a few days, bikes were in perfect condition and well worth doing. All in all a great service. Cheers guys!!

Was looking to hire a downhill bike for use in the bikepark and after a great deal of searching online i chose Arbutus for the high spec bikes they had on offer at competitive prices. The staff knew what they were talking about and made you feel welcome no matter what level of experience you had. The bike was set up well, worked perfectly and the mechanics were happy to make adjustments when asked - will definitely be using them again!

Rented a stumpy from them to explore the local trails. They set up the bike perfectly for me and gave great advice on local trails, spending time to ensure my adventure was more than just a rental. Brand new bike so excellent value for rental fee! I'll be recommending them to all my friends.

Arbutus roots has been a great addition to the whistler bike community over the past few years.
Anytime I needed anything done with my bike I feel confident bringing my bike in. They have a great crew of mechanics, with lots of experience. I pick my bike up there always loving it more then when I left it.
They take the time to figure out what it is you need and make it happen.
Anytime I've needed help in a pinch (ie. mid ride) someone is there to get me back on my bike that day or even that hour if needed.
Great group of people, always happy to help and great experience. Not to mention they carry some of the best brands in town.

Thanks for always helping out arbutus.

I really like the Arbutus shop because I dont have to compete with the weekend warriors of the bike park to get great service and acknowledgement. The staff remembered my name and the attitude of the crew is very friendly and full of knowledge. Jo was great, he helped me with my bike and also informed me about the bike tours they offer from the shop.
If he is my tour guide then count me in!

Lets go ride some bikes!!
