The Explorer has been one of our best-selling bikes, ever since it’s introduction in 1982. Originally designed as a mountain bike, the Explorer has since evolved into a very practical and very comfortable sport comfort bike. Inspired in part by our Hudsons and Citizens, without sacrificing the versatile on or off-road competence of the original Explorer, the newest generation Explorer is all about getting the most fun out of the ride, in STYLE, with performance and comfort features that make getting around so effortless it hardly feels like exercise.

Established in 2009, DG Bicycles in Indianapolis was built on a dream two young kids had when hanging out in The Shack. In 1980's, my cousin Grant and I dream one day of having our own Bicycle shops. Filled with all the bikes we ever wanted and a B.M.X. track in the middle of the store. This seemed so much like a dream, that when the chance finally came to owning my own shop. I jumped on it, and in honor of my cousin who passed away in 1998, I kept the name we made up so long ago!
Now, I might not have the B.M.X. track in the middle of the store. But I do have all the bicycles I could have ever wanted and more. Bicycles and recumbent's I know you will love to have as well.
At DG Bicycles, we specialize in happiness. We strive to make new friends and have you on the best bike for you! That is why We offer a full Year of Service with Each Bicycle sale, one time or 30 day tunes up's are just not enough and we know that! So bring it in for anything from just a lubing and cleaning to the full tune up.
