Owner description: We rent, repair, and sell bicycles and recumbent bikes and trikes. A full service shop with tools, parts, accessories. We are a family run business. We are also one of the only frame builders in East Tennessee, so you may get to actually see bikes being built from scratch when you come to our shop. Customer service is our highest priority. We carry electric bikes for use in getting up and down the hills in Cades Cove. We also are open early on Wednesdays so stop by to get your bike here because they often run out of bikes to rent in the Cove.

I was having trouble with the gears on the bike I own during a ride. Stopped on our way back and in 15 minutes for less then 15 dollars the problem was fixed. Owner gave very helpful bike pointers and advise. Anyone in need of honest bike repair or advice at a fair price should check them out!!

While bike riding, my husband's pedal came loose. We passed U-man power and stopped. Bill and his wife tightened it for free. Very nice folks. Thank you again!

Our family rarely bikes, but wanted to ride through Cades Cove without all of the traffic. We really lucked out finding this bike rental company! Like I said, we are rarely on a bike. We told these folks about what we planned on doing and they informed us that riding through the Cove was not an easy trip and suggested... More

Good place to rent bikes while in townsend and ride on the bike trails. They were reasonably priced for rentals and had various lengths of time to rent and good selection of bikes and recumbent bikes and trikes. Would recommend.

I couldn't find anyone in or around Knoxville that even carries them. Then a shop owner at one of the bike stores I went by told me of U-Man Power and that they rent them. The... More

Picked up a few accessories for my recumbent trike during my stay. Descent prices and wonderful service. Would highly recommend visiting Townsend and exploring the Smokys by bike (or trike). Don't have a bike or... More
