Hi guys,

 

Thanks for the advance help. Im looking for a good theme, template to customize a bicycle store in my country. The shop is about 10 years old and have more than 3.000 products, with different categoryes, etc. 

At the botom I have a list of some of the store I have found over internet but no one have convinced me yet. One of the things I´m concern is the UX for the customers with a store of that amount of products, with a good filters, cathegorice and a menu navegation. Also I have only work with shopify for no more than a 100 products store, so not sure about the upload of products, speed of loading, etc.

 

Hope I have made my self clear, many thanks in any recommendation, tip, specific theme and plugins, etc.

You can build a custom filtering system and modify anything on a theme, so what I recommend is finding a theme where you like the general design and feel.

 

Here's my logic + opinions + some fast themes + where I shop for themes: https://speedboostr.com/shopify-themes-and-developers.

 

I've customized themes to the point you can't even recognize the original, so don't worry too much about choosing the "right" theme.

 

Any professional theme you choose should work well for high number of products. Most themes are built like this, unless they advertise themselves as a "single product". 

 

Summary: choose a theme that you vibe with on a design basis, and know that it's just a skin so anything can be built / customized on top of it.

Hi Joes for your help.  I ckeck what you suggested and it was helpful. I understand that basacally everything can be change, but my concern today is that im working with Envy theme (180 USD) for another website and it has been so annoying not be able to customize freely the pages sections, other than the home page. So im worried that i can have the same problem with a bigger client (bicycles) were I have to be like: sorry, for that now you need to pay this extra per month, for that extra the same. I have seen some themes in Themeforest that looks more flexibles for a really good price, but us u said in the links you provided, maybe they are not us good as it looks like. Im just starting in development and have some small knowledge about code, but would be really helpful if you could recommend also some basic tutorial or  similar to get some nowledge to get in to the code to be able to add some sections on other pages.   Many thanks in advance

Ya that makes sense, clients like the sections. You can reach out to the theme devs and ask for screenshots of the sections, if that's an area of focus for you.

 

I love Theme Forest, my go-to if I need a non-Shopify theme but in the past the quality wasn't as on-point as going directly to a dedicated Shopify theme dev shop. I'm sure there are some good themes in there though for Shopify.

 

I'd love to help you out with some tutorial recommendations but it's been many years since I learned the ins of Shopify dev... I don't think there really were any tuts back then. I like using Udemy though when I want to dive into a new skill. I'll usually do that to learn the foundations, then build a project to solidify the knowledge. This one might be helpful: https://www.udemy.com/course/make-money-become-a-shopify-expert-from-zero-to-hero/ (I haven't taken the course but it looks good for starting Shopify dev).
