About Us


Oldest Bike Shop in the USA

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. 


First Franchise - Schwinn

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." 


Best Bike Line Today - Trek

 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.
