Nicollet Bike Shop has been serving the Greater Mankato cycling community for over 45 years. The shop got its name (previously Nicollet South Bike Shop) from it's original rural location 3 miles south of the town of Nicollet, MN. Shop owners Justin and Jenna Rinehart moved the shop from it's rural location to downtown Mankato in the fall of 2011.
