Bootlegger Bikes is a small, full service bike shop near Smugglers Notch in Jeffersonville, Vermont that serves the Jeffersonville, Cambridge, Fletcher, Fairfax, Johnson, Underhill, Jericho, and surrounding areas. Owner, Matt Niklaus, has been riding, building, and maintaining bicycles for over 30 years. His passion for these two-wheeled machines began as a child when he took those first pedal strokes and continued as he began racing BMX at Woodward near his hometown in central Pennsylvania. A fascination with the bicycle continued as he began wrenching on them as a teenager at a family friends 4th generation bike shop. This passion continued through college and into adult life and has evolved into what it is today, keeping people on their bikes and smiling.
Above all else, bicycles are a passion. That passion coupled with love for the community is what has evolved to be Bootlegger Bikes. The ultimate focus of the shop is customer service, quality products, and community.
