Welcome to Fourth Floor Distribution. We are North America’s first (and only) importer and distributor of city bicycles and accessories. Through many years of visiting the world’s cycling meccas and infusing our own bicycle retail experience, we have built an exquisite collection of finely crafted bicycles and the accessories to match.
Fourth Floor grew out of honest shopkeeping – a point of pride for us – and we still meet our end-user every single day. Our office is on the second floor of Curbside Cycle, our sister company and Toronto’s premier city bike retailer. Curbside is located in Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood (the ultimate testing ground), a neighbourhood that’s been biking around the city for decades.
We understood from the outset that selling city bikes and accessories in North America would be no easy task. The success of selling city bikes involved shifting a mindset anchored in male dominated performance sports. We kept our noses to the grindstone and helped curate and cultivate some of the most exciting city bike stores in North America. Our product knowledge, retail experience, and keen eye for innovative product and their place in North American bike culture has played a pivotal role.
The paradigm shift has occurred. City biking is becoming a respected and sought after lifestyle. There is still much work to be done and we continue to seek out new and exciting goods that make city biking easy, practical, and fun.
