Repairing bikes in the community since 1979.
Based in Florence, SC, Phil's Bicycle World was a realization of a life long dream. Phil Murphy, owner and founder of Bicycle World says, "I was probably eight years old when my love for bicycles started. In 1953-1954, there were very few models to choose from. All the kids in the neighborhood had single speed, fat tire bikes and we would always be making changes to make our bikes faster. We were all competing to create the fastest bike out there. About that time, I found a man who had a small bike shop in his garage, just a few blocks from my house. I remember thinking how neat it would be to have a small shop like that one day. Little did I know, thirty years later, that childhood dream would become a reality."

Sun Bicycle specializes in the casual cyclist. While their specialty is casual...their is nothing casual about their bikes. They have been in the business of making top quality bikes since 1971! Sun says, "a bike is a conduit to a life close to the sunshine, close to the light warm wind, to the elements, with no carbon footprint, no doors or windows shut to the world.".
We prefer the term "pre-loved"! We accept trade-ins based on condition, brand, and a few other variables. You never know when a treasure will make it's way into the shop so be sure to stop by or give us a call to find out about the "pre-loved" inventory!

We love the community that has supported us for so many years and we'd love for you to get involved with the shop!

Events & Meetups
Phil’s is now spotlighting some of our local competitors and phriends. This time its Bruce. Bruce is a long time phriend of the shop and our resident touring and bike-packing enthusiast. Bruce, now retired, puts 4500 miles on the bike a year with most of his excursions being between one and two weeks long. He is always challenging himself with unique adventures such as the Blue Ridge Parkway, Silver Comet Trail, Skyline Drive, and Natchez Trace Trail just to name a few. Bruce says all his years of commuting to work helped him with his touring. He does plan out his routes but doesn’t stick to a schedule. Happy Touring Bruce and as he says “Have fun. Don’t Die.”
