“We help you make the right choice in their cycling needs,” said owner David Hardin.
Hardin has owned Biker’s Choice in Hendersonville for 23 years, and when he saw an opportunity to come to Mt. Juliet, he didn’t let it pass.
“There is just a big market established here,” said Hardin about Mt. Juliet. He said that 15 percent of his customers in Hendersonville came from the Mt. Juliet and Hermitage area.
Hardin said that Biker’s Choice’s slogan, “The right choice in cycling” means that Hardin and the staff will help make the right choice for you.

Hardin said that Biker’s Choice will have three mechanics on staff and will handle all repair needs, usually with a 1-2 day turn around, some can be done on the spot.
Hardin said that Biker’s Choice is a family first store, and wants to help make the cycling experience for the family a special one. Whether it is a 3-year old learning to get off the training wheels, or a family that likes to go mountain biking, they can help you.
