Back in 2010, Nicola Stasi decided life is too short to sit around and was inspired to share his passion for outdoor sports by opening No Boundaries in downtown Coral Gables. He set out to stock all the gear you might need during outdoor activities, educate the public about the benefits and fun of bike riding, and form a tight knit community of bike activists and outdoor sporting hobbyists.
Exceptional Customer Service
Have you ever dreamed of walking into a outdoor sporting goods store and being greeted by a friendly seasoned sportsman or sportswoman that will answer your every question knowledgeably without making you feel like a hopeless amateur? Well, your dream has come true; manifesting itself as No Boundaries. My favorite thing about shopping at No Boundaries is their eagerness to share their knowledge. It doesn’t matter if you are going there for advice, service or shopping; the friendly staff will give you the best experience in the industry. Their exceptional customer service truly has no limits.
Learning to cultivate your interest in outdoor activities can be a little overwhelming. Take biking for example. Okay you have decided to start biking to work to get some more exercise. What kind of bike should you buy – a road bike, mountain bike or hybrid? What the heck is a hybrid? What size tires should it have? What size frame is the right frame for you? What height should the seat be? Should you get a rack for your car? What kind of rack works for your car? And the list of questions continues. If you walked to any other sporting goods store you’d probably guess and pick one; or an employee might suggest options that are not ideal. The worst part of this situation is not knowing whether they are taking advantage of you or they are actually looking out for you.
Loyal customers go solely to No Boundaries to avoid that scenario. If you are not sure what to buy you can feel comfortable saying so because you will never be made feel like a chump at No Boundaries. The staff will ask you all the questions required to figure out exactly what would be the best bike for your situation and budget. They will explain the differences between your available options and recommend the best fitting bike for the use you have in mind. So the more you shop at No Boundaries the more you will learn about your outdoor hobby and the different equipment needed.
My sister is a huge fan of No Boundaries in Coral Gables. Once she bought her first bike there she has bought every other bike there too. (She is a person that owns five bikes). The customer service is so fantastic she asks them to order the bike for her even if they don’t carry the brand in store. When she bought a bike rack for her Jeep, they took the time to install it for free. For any last minute needs they are the most convenient solution; and they are so friendly that you don’t want to go to other places. They also stock a full line of accessories including bike locks, and special batteries for your bike lights.
No boundaries offers bike fittings. These custom fittings usually take about two hours as an experienced mechanic adjusts your bike’s seat post, handlebar, and pedals. Adjusting the bike to your physiology will help avoid injury, reduce joint pain, and let you ride more comfortably.
No Boundaries’ mechanic service is fantastic. The talented and experienced mechanics will take care of any issue your bike may have. Also, if you buy your bike there, your first tune up is free at their location. Bikes look and feel like new after their maintenance and are back to running as smoothly as the first day. The wonderful thing about servicing your bike at No Boundaries is that everyone remembers you and they are super friendly. You can see they love their job and that they really love biking and outdoorsy activities. They also give you personal tips if you are new at mountain biking like where to bike and what events are going on.
Don’t just buy any old running shoe. The employees at No Boundaries will assess how you strike when you run so that they can recommend the best fit for your stride. Wearing the appropriate shoe helps protect your joints and avoid injuries. They carry top selling running shoe brands including Newton, Brooks, and Ultra.
Outdoor Sports & Biking Community
No Boundaries’ goal is to continue to be a destination for the cycling community. They want to inspire more people to take their bike instead of their car as a conscious choice. They partner with local organizations such as Bike 305, Bike Walk Coral Gables, and the Underline to promote cycling in South Florida. No Boundaries also participates in Coral Gables events by offering complimentary bike valet services. They will keep your safe bike during the event and you can pick it up at the end with your valet ticket number.
