About Race Pace Columbia
Our Columbia store opened in May 2005 as the largest Race Pace location. After 12 very successful years, the store received a major renovation in the fall of 2016. We feature a wide selection of bicycles from Trek, Cannondale, Scott, Felt and Electra. Each Trek, Scott and Cannondale enjoy their own sections in the store to highlight the brands and present our customers with the best possible experience when shopping for bicycles and accessories from these brands.
The Columbia location has extensive bike fit services and deep experience with fit for road, triathlon, and mountain riders. Our store boasts a Retul system for conducting bike fits; we have a Retul M.U.V.E. Bike for determining bike sizing. We can conduct sophisticated tests to determine your VO2 MAX, and can also do bike fittings with power meters to help determine the optimum fit for efficiency and comfort. Race Pace bike fitters have attended numerous fit schools to gather the best information to utilize in helping you achieve the optimum fit for your bike.
Bicycle Touring is another of the niches that we specialize in and our staff have cycled across the US, Central America, Europe, North Africa, and South East Asia. We also ride to work most days rain or shine and can help you outfit your commuter bike. If you want to bike 3 miles to work or around the world, we can help you select the correct bike, lights, bags/racks and clothing to make your ride safe.
We believe in bike commuting as a valuable form of transportation that reduces traffic congestion and improves health. We keep a list of bike trails and ride resources in the store and are happy to suggest rides for you. We can help you find the right bike path, great single track trails in the woods, or help you plan a trip across the country or around the world.
