DAN'S Bike Shop has brought to the country one of the leading bike brands in the world, offering the latest models for enthusiasts ranging from newbies to hardcore cyclists.

From a small bike shop in Bacolod City, Dan’s Bike Shop has grown into one of the go-to shops for bikes, with two more branches in Manila and Cebu.

Dan’s Bike Shop co-owner Jami Ramirez said the store began in 1996 as a small motorcycle apparel store owned by his father Dan. But the younger Ramirez, a biking enthusiast himself, saw an opportunity to branch out in cycling so they began the transition to turn it into a bike store.

“Nung 2002, 2003, we decided to branch out and now majority of the business is cycling-related,” said Ramirez.

One of the leading brands that Dan’s has brought to the country is Specialized, one of the top bike manufacturers in the United States. Currently, Dan’s is the the exclusive distributor of the brand in the country.

In this SPIN.ph interview, we spoke to Ramirez to discuss the two newest mountain bikes of Specialized that Dan's Bike Shop has to offer – the Chisel and the Fit.

Ramirez said the Chisel is one of the more popular bikes especially for the budget-conscious, while Epic provides the unique Brain technology feature that is perfect for the serious mountain bike enthusiasts.

Ramirez explains more in this interview.

Dan's Bike Shop is located at La Fuerza Plaza, 2241 Chino Roces Avenue, Makati City.
