Shop Info: Elite Bicycles opened its boutique/retail location in 2001 in Philadelphia, PA. We build custom triathlon and road racing bikes, in addition to offering tri specific wetsuits, shoes, helmets, trainers, cases, and more. Our President David Greenfield is a former professional triathlete and Jamaican National Champion, as well as a master of biomechanical bicycle positioning. While we do only sell Elite Bicycles, we will happily fit anyone to their current bike regardless of its manufacturer. We will also help guide the client to the purchase of another brand based on their preference and fit. We are also well known for our exceptional customer service and responsiveness. Ask around!

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
