Downtown Bike Hounds (affectionately known as Bikehounds or DBH) is downtown Hamilton’s only full service bicycle shop. While it makes little sense to pigeonhole any bike shop into a specific cycling category, we can safely say that we have a noticeable slant toward commuter cycling, utility/cargo biking, city bikes and the cycling lifestyle (i.e. using your bike as a tool in every day life).
