Bike Shop St. George Residents Can Rely On

In 1980, Mark took a job at a downtown bike shop in southern Utah, Larry’s spoke and pedal. Four years later, having studied business at Dixie State University, he purchased the shop and changed the name to Bicycles Unlimited.

Since that time, Bicycles Unlimited has had continued to grow to meet the needs of its customers. Over the years, Mark has seen great improvements in technology in bicycle construction, and he has seen the popularity of sport biking take hold as well. “It is really neat to see how many people are actively enjoying biking in our community today,” he says. “I’ve watched the biking community grow each year for the last 35 years, and it is always exciting to me to see new riders enter the sport.”

Meet the Crew

Mark McLaughlin

From an early age, Mark was interested in cycling. As a young teenager, he often spent hours riding each day after school, and was always interested in upgrading bike parts. A Schwinn Continental is what Mark regards as his first “real bike.” Considered “a light road bike” for its time, all of its parts were from Europe and it weighed in at 39 lbs – 17 lbs. more than the full-suspension mountain he rides today.

Mark’s longest ride was from St. George to Salt Lake City and back via I-15 and HWY 89. His toughest event was serving as a mechanic and advisor for a customer during a non-stop 44-hour Race Across America qualifier.

Jay Barlett

For nearly a decade, Jay has been building and repairing bikes at Bicycles Unlimited and is known for keeping gears shifting smoothly and wheels spinning true. An avid rider for more than 20 years, he knows the ins and outs of most local trails, and his recommendations for trail riding are published in a regular column in St. George Health & Wellness Magazine. In recent years, Jay has taken up road cycling as well, logging thousands of miles.

Nathan Talbot

Nathan Talbot says what he likes most about his job is problem solving and helping customers find solutions to get them back on the road. He also enjoys the excitement of keeping up with new industry technologies and staying current in his trainings through Trek University and Shimano. At age 15, Nathan became third of four siblings to work for Bicycles Unlimited, and is now serving as shop manager. With a long history in the biking industry, the Talbot family has contributed significantly to helping Bicycles Unlimited flourish. Nathan’s longest race was the scenic Watchman 100 from Zion National Park to Sand Hollow State Park in southern Utah.

  • Wheel truing – straightening out wheels that have become warped or misaligned due to bumps in the road, potholes or other mishaps.
  • Tire pressure check – making sure all tires are properly filled with air before hitting the road.
