About Maklin Bike Shop

Maklin Bike Shop is a Trek, Niner, Cervélo, Salsa and Electra bike dealer located in Shafer, MN near the Swedish Immigrant Bike Trail between the Chisago Lakes Area and the St. Croix River Valley. 

Owners Lynn and Steve both work in the shop full time and you will find their two boys coming in and out of the shop as well.

Where does the name Maklin come from...?  Lynn's maiden name is Makela and Steve's last name is Hamlin.  A combination of the two and there you go!

Lynn has an Information Systems degree from Michigan Tech and runs much of our general store operations and service scheduling, along with taking care of our website, social media accounts and the business office. When Lynn's not at the store or running the boys around for their activities, she enjoys getting out for a nice casual ride on the mountain bike trails or bike path.

Steve has a Mechanical Engineering degree from Michigan Tech and handles a majority of our service work, along with helping customers narrow down the right bike, parts or accessories for their ride. You can frequently find him riding his bike home at night from the shop or sneaking out in the morning for a quick gravel ride. Steve loves finding new places to ride or races to challenge himself and has done various endurance races such as the Marji Gesick 100, Maah Daah Hey 100, Badlands Gravel Battle, Lutsen 99er, Wilderness 101, Wildmerman Full Iron Offroad Tri, Tuscobia 80 and many others.

Stop by the store to chat about bikes, or take a spin on the Swedish Immigrant Bike Trail!  

Enjoy the Ride!

-Lynn & Steve
