Always fast and effective service. I've bought 2 bikes over the years from Foster and have always been happy with the product and service that came from it. Tyler, one of the staff, is especially great as he can accommodate to your specific bike needs!

We purchased three bikes from Foster's this year. Excellent service and great prices. Thank you Tyler for all your help!

From my experience Foster's is the best bike shop in town. They usually (in non-COVID times) have a good selection of bikes for all budgets and will do repairs on the spot if they can. 100% recommend.

Great service! The gentlemen there were fast, respectful, and quite helpful. If you’re looking for quality service, then I recommend you come here!
Amazing job winterizing my bike, it wasn't in great shape when I brought it in but it's been running smoothly all winter thanks to your work. The prices were reasonable and the service was very fast. Thank you!

Wonderful experience! I wanted to get ready for snowy Ottawa winters early and came in looking for new skate skis, poles, boots and bindings. Over my two visits I was assisted by numerous staff who were all very knowledgeable and attentive. They were able to find me the perfect s...

I purchased by gravel bike at the The Cyclery last summer then returned to get set up for my cross-country skies. Every visit has been a pleasure from getting accessories, bike tune ups, having my ski poles shortened...Their staff are knowledgeable and kind no matter your level.

I was hesitant to bring my bike here but I am very satisfied with my experience! I came in with a broken axle (Foster's turned me away saying they couldn't fix it). The guys at the bike dump got me a new wheel and also fixed my brakes and pumped up the tires too. Very fair price ...

Had a great experience with Dave and co. after buying a new-to-me bike there. Very down to earth crew that know their stuff. After having the bike for a couple weeks and bringing it back for the (included in purchase price) tune-up, they replaced a wonky back tire at no cost. Th...

Everyone says that the staff was rude but I went there and they were awesome. I even got a discount for being a student. Love the vibes.

They have a great selection of used bikes that go fast! I picked up a hard-to-find $40 part for only $8 that looked barely used.

Alex is the man! Again, top service! My pedal fell off in mid-ride on the SJAM. On the way home I stopped at the shop and left it to be replaced. Alex call a day later that it was done. When I picked it up and asked about the e-transfer email to pay, he said ''Pay for what?''. Th...

Great bikes and great people! Alex helped me pick out a bike and ensured it was the proper fit. I didn’t feel pressured or rushed, he let the bikes do the talking. I walked away with a beautifully restored vintage Centurion Accordo. It’s a dream to ride and explore the city ...
