Sadly, Bob's has closed, a victim of the economic downturn. Bob's was one of the old style shops and was a Schwinn Cyclery when I was a kid and a Schwinn was an aspiration. Captain Kangaroo advertised Schwinn. Schwinn advertised in Boy's Life. The better-off kids had Schwinns, and they got them at Bob's - a real bike shop.

Bob's had survived the Great Depression, at least one world war, and all sorts of other challenges but couldn't weather this one. Bob's had relocated a couple of times and had transitioned from Schwinn to Trek and the Trek family and Lynskey.


I finally got a Schwinn form Bob's in 1973 when I bought a Continental. I would return after I went away to school and then began my Navy career, and they were always helpful and friendly, even if it had been years between visits.

Bob's was always the best, and after the Moore family sold to the Carvers, the Carvers carried on that great tradition. Bob's didn't do rentals, so Mike Carver would either loan me a bike or broker a deal with one of his staff so my wife and I could ride when we were visiting.

I can't say enough about how well Bob's supported the cycling community and the greater Rome area over the decades.

Now that I own my own bike shop in Colorado, I often think about Bob's and let those memories inspire me on the good days and steel me on the tough ones.

RIP Bob's. You were one of the great ones.

A very nice shop with a good selection of Road and Mountain bikes. They carry Trek and Gary Fisher etc. They have a good selection of accessaries, but I wish they had a few more choices of clothing.

Customer Service


This is were Bob's Cycle shines!! I have been in there shop many times and from the simplest $2.00 part to an $2000.00 bike they acted like I was the most important thing they were doing. I spent atleast 5 hours asking questions and riding different bikes and never felt any pressure to hurry. As a matter of fact they incouraged me to look at many options. Bob's Cycle really is at the head of the pack when it comes to Customer Service!!

The body scan fit system Bob's uses is Great! Mike scanned me in about 5 min had several bikes set up for me to ride. The fit was spot on and with a few small tweaks I am more comfortable on a bike than I have been in years!
