Recreation & Sports
At Big Sky Cycling and Fitness, we love bikes and we love to ride bikes. We have a diverse staff with a breadth of knowledge and experience to better serve our customers. Most of our staff has been involved in the bike business for many years and for others, it’s their life.
Whether you’re a marathon runner, a cyclist, trying to lose weight, or working through physical therapy, let your friends at Big Sky Cycling & Fitness help you with all of your equipment needs. We have been a family owned business in Helena for 25 years, and we know how to treat people right! Not only are we genuinely interested in what you have to say, but we are also going to guide you in the right direction to help you choose the equipment that is right for you.
Big Sky Cycling and Fitness is a full service repair shop. We have highly trained and experienced mechanics who love working on bikes. We service any brand, style, or age of bike.
Typically, we can fix flats while you wait. For all other services, it is best to schedule an appointment so your bike will only be in the shop for a day. If you need your bike done before the next available appointment, we do apply rush charges. We give free estimates for all service work prior to any work being completed.
Services offered, but not limited to, include: Tire repairs: fixing a flat, installing slime, tubeless conversions; accessory installation: racks, fenders, lights, computers; tune-ups/overhauls; adjustments: all parts of a bike; parts replacement: cables/housing, brakes, cassettes, chains, handlebars, forks; fork overhauls/ oil changes; brake bleeds; boxing and shipping a bike; assembling shipped bikes; conversions to single-speed.
We offer 3 different tune-ups to accommodate what your bicycle needs. All repair services (except flat tire repairs) include a 30-day riding guarantee on all work performed. If your bike is not working as you expect it should, just bring it back and we’ll take care of it.

The Helena Store is located in the heart of Historic Downtown just one block East of Last Chance Gulch (“Main Street” in Helena) at 326 North Jackson Street between Lawrence Street and 6th Avenue. Our neighbors are the Montana Book & Toy Company to the North with US Bank to the South. We are the tallest building on the block and have a red clock tower on top of the roof. There is free parking on the street directly in front of the shop and two city parking lots immediately across the street that are only .50¢ per 1/2 hour (both lots are free after 5 pm and on weekends and holidays). Vehicles towing boats or RV’s can pull up and easily park in front of the shop provided there are no cars already parked in that location.
At the Great Divide Cylery we’ve built a reputation in Montana as the shop to go to if you want correct bike fit. We developed that reputation over years by seeking out and applying information not readily available to the cycling market. We are one of the few, if not the only bike shop in the state, that has a fit protocol for every bike we sell.
