Urbane Cyclist

We are a worker cooperative bicycle shop dedicated to servicing people like ourselves– daily commuters–the non-lingo, plain talking individuals who use their bikes to get around. Commuters and couriers form our core clientele amongst recumbent riders, touring cyclists, users of folding bikes and builders of alternative bikes and trailers.

The Harmonized Sales Tax

On July 1st the B.C. Provincial Sales Tax (PST) will be eliminated. On that date, you’ll see the 7% B.C. rate join the 5% Goods and Services Tax (GST) to give us a total HST rate of 12%. This is the lowest in Canada.
But what does this mean to the cycling industry? The tax on bicycles and bicycle related products will be increasing. Previously, bicycles, most bicycle parts, and some accessories such as helmets have been subject only to GST at 5%. Now all those products will be subject to a 12% HST.
On the other hand, what this may mean is the transportation plan may budget for the next steps in improving and expanding our cycling transportation network to meet the needs of our growing population and many visitors.

You’re buying a new bicycle, and at the same time want to help the B.C economy.

Asama Bicycles has proudly been a Richmond based company selling bikes to B.C. stores since 1986. Chances are you have owned one of the lines we have sold in the past: Kuwahara bicycles, Asama Bicycles, Rockline Bicycles.
We are a local family business, who not only distributes bikes in Canada, but manufactures these bikes at our very own production facilities overseas. We have made millions of bikes, both under our own brand and for a variety of companies around the world.
We stand behind our product 110 percent to ensure that your bicycle continually adds to your quality of life.
We sell a quality line of bicycles through trusted independent bicycle dealers, beginning at $300 dollars for adults. We have a great selection of kid’s bikes as well.
You buy more locally, you spend more locally, a sound principle for supporting your community, as well as your province and your country.
