Family-Owned BikeSmith Tackles Every Rider's Biking Needs

By Kelly Church

The BikeSmith is an Albuquerque, NM family-owned bike shop that rents, sells and services bikes for the tourist and cycling community. Ross Consaul, along with his wife Ammie, their daughter Rose and her husband Rick, own and manage the business. The family is deeply rooted in Albuquerque and shares a mutual interest in helping customers explore the city on two wheels. 

"The BikeSmith is a local bike shop owned by a family that rides, and cares deeply about people, Albuquerque and amazing biking experiences," Consaul says. "Through our bike rental business, we help visitors create unforgettable, one-of-a-kind biking adventures and experience Albuquerque in a unique way."

Both mountain bikes and road bikes can be rented through The BikeSmith. In fact, Consaul says his store has the largest selection of high quality rental bikes in Albuquerque. In 2015 and 2016, Google ranked The BikeSmith as the top vendor for road and mountain bike rentals in the city. TripAdvisor also ranked them as number one for gear rental three years in a row, 2014 through 2016. 

For customers looking to invest in their own set of wheels, The BikeSmith retails major brands, including Giant, Breezer, Fuji and Felt. They encourage everyone to come in and test drive any bike. Based on each person's wants and needs for a bike, the team can help guide customers in the right direction so they end up with a bike they love. Once purchased, The BikeSmith team can repair and maintain bikes with ease through their mechanics that have more than 30 years of experience. They offer free bike checks, with no commitment. 

Consaul also says they strongly support the biking community in Albuquerque. Biking enthusiasts can look to The BikeSmith team for introducing them to other bicyclists in the area for events, group rides, clubs and advocacy programs. The company supports an Albuquerque racing team and offers free bike safety inspections and bike repair stands bi-monthly at Old Town Farm and Green Jeans Farmery. 

Consaul and The BikeSmith team can also guide customers to all the great rides in the area. In fact, their website has a section completely dedicated to local mountain and road biking. Visit for more information.
