Lloyd Garrison Bumstead, great, great, grandson of the founder, Lloyd Garrison Bumstead is the 4th Bumstead to own Bumstead's Bicycles. Currently Bumstead's Bicycles is located at the corner of 4th and Mountain Ave in Ontario, but over the 108 years since it was founded, the shop has been in various locations and had many name changes.
Founded just 25 years after the "invention" of the modern bicycle, Bumstead's is known for more than just it's longevity. Lloyd explains, "We were the first Schwinn Shop in Southern California. And since most historians consider Schwinn stores to have been the the first franchises, our business was at the forefront of both the huge Schwinn domination of the business and of the franchise concept. At one time Schwinn was one of the most recognized brands in America, right up there with Coke and Chevrolet."
The company currently has Trek Bicycles as the anchor bike line. Trek is the leading bicycle brand in the US in units, dollars, and commonly at the finish line of races of every type. Bumstead's believes in old fashioned customer service, with Lloyd on the sales floor and doing the most difficult repairs.
