“Only if you are renting”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2010

It seems Grand Sports in Winter Park has fallen victim to it's seasonal business. When the crowds come to Winter Park Grand Sports maximizes it's business at everyone's expense. The owner Dan talks the talk but fails to walk the walk. He will take every repair that comes his way with a promise to complete the tune-ups "today". Twice I was promised a same day completion and twice the tune-up wasn't even complete in 24 hours. I was first in the shop, promised a same day completion and the bike wasn't ready until after noon the next day. So 36 hours for a priority shift lever installation just doesn't work for me. Also be careful of hyper expensive basic tune-up parts such as brakes. Grand Sports has decided to maximize their business at the expense of promised service. Stick with Grand for rentals only.

“Winter Parks best ski/bike shop in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2009

I was impressed with the owners and their children that work to make my summer biking experience worth it. We came to take in the mt bike trails and they were so helpful pointing out some great options for a mixed group of riders and abilities. The daughter was helpful and polite commanding our attention to fill the paperwork as necessary and their son set up everyone on their bike perfectly.
Obviously family run this family gets our business from now on and our highest recommendation. Friendly, helpful and interested to make our biking experience fun and rewarding...Well done O'Connell family. Oh and the cute clothing options and summer sale items make this a must stop if you close in the Area. Turns out Mom is the Buyer, Dad is the tech and the kids serve the public honorably to the best of their young years...

“World's Best Bike Rental”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2008

Grand Sport in Winter Park, Co is the best place on earth to rent a bike while on vacation! On a vacation from NC to CO this summer our family rented bikes here. The owner is a first class guy who seemed as excited for us to get out and explore the trails around town as we were about getting to do it. He matched us up with great, high quality, new bikes and a trailer for our child. Then in addition to that, the price was right. Great service. Great quality. Great price. Yep... Grand Sport in WInter Park Co is the world's best location for bike rentals.
