Across seven continents and fifty+ countries, underneath thirty-two of the world’s brightest professional cyclists, in over ten thousand retail outlets, and throughout the streets of the world’s most populous nations, you’ll find bicycles designed and built by Giant, “The Global Bicycle Company”. Their Mountain Bikes are legendary for a very good reason.
The Felt brand has grown well beyond its racing roots, but the guiding principle remains the same. Every Felt bike, road or off-road, high-end performance to entry level recreation, is meant to make the cycling experience the best it can be. Whether climbing the steepest peaks of the Tour de France, bombing single-track trails, racing a first triathlon or commuting to work; each promises uncompromised performance, comfort, and efficiency. Jim Felt’s mission is to design, develop, and deliver the finest bicycles in the world; see for yourself.
Santa Cruz Bicycles manufactures 16 models of mountain bike which includes a full women’s Juliana range. Made from either carbon fiber or aluminum, they cover everything from hardtails to 8.5″ travel downhill machines. They offer two suspension technologies; efficient single-pivot designs on certain aluminium bikes, and their advanced VPP (Virtual Pivot Point) technology on all high end models. VPP bikes are available with a wide range of component and suspension options to choose from, each hand-assembled to order in their California factory. Every Santa Cruz bicycle is the result of the desire to ride and build the highest performance mountain bikes in the world.

Cycling has changed more in the last 20 years than in the previous 100. With new technologies, materials, and manufacturing techniques there’s a lot to keep up with. We’re here to guide you through the technical quagmire and help you to arrive at an affordable, informed destination, whether it’s a new bike, braking system, GPS or just a couple of water bottle cages. At Sunshine, we really enjoy showing you the latest high tech gear (we’re all bike-tech geeks).
These are just a few of the excellent brands that we carry:
Shimano components have made a great contribution to the world of bicycle racing through advanced designs that reduce stress, and make more efficient use of energy. The engineering behind these competition components is also applied to the full line of Shimano products so all cyclists can benefit from it.
Rock Shox, Avid, Truvativ and Grip Shift all fall under the SRAM Banner. SRAM began with the goal of creating the absolute best shifting system and changed the cycling world forever with the introduction of Grip Shift. Their beautifully designed components are a force to be reckoned with and their goal is total drive train nirvana.
Founded in Vicenza, Italy in 1933 by Commendatore Tullio Campagnolo; Campy is the choice of racers. Take a look at the jewel-like quality of a Campy component set and you’ll understand the passion of cycling.
Mavic, the French manufacturer of complete wheel-sets, rims, components and cycle computers dates back to 1889. Well known for their sense of history and their ground-breaking technological innovations, Mavic is the racer’s choice for a myriad of components such as rims, pedals, hubs and electronics.
With names such as Frog, Drilluim, Brass Knuckles and Zero, Speedplay pedals won’t be mistaken for anything else. Speedplay makes some of the lightest, strongest and most sought after pedals in cycling.
Continental’s Mountain Bike tires are second to none and their Road tires offer low rolling resistance, great traction and longevity.
Yes, the same Michelin that makes the finest automobile tires in the world also makes some of the finest cycling tires in the world. Whether you’re riding a beach cruiser across the sands of Edisto Island or racing a Felt F1 up and over Caesar’s Head, Michelin has the tires for you.
Since Osprey was founded in 1974, every single product design bearing the Osprey name has passed through the hands of owner and founder Mike Pfotenhauer. From stitching the first lines of custom-fitted packs, to meticulously designing innovative products with intuitive features, to forging personal relationships with the sewing operators who construct the packs, Mike has been the unbreakable thread that makes Osprey a company like no other.
Founded in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1992 by club cyclist Jim McFarlane, Endura produces cycling clothing focused on function and longevity without cutting corners on material and construction.
