Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 6

Friendly and knowledgeable staff good service decent selection of products. Bike Works is a family owned bike shop that opened in 1997 nestled in a little coastal town of Half Moon Bay. The shop was opened by two brothers who have a passion for cycling. Although mountain biking is what they are known for they also sell high-end road bikes, beach cruisers and just recently opened up a skate department. Come on by to see our new building.

Shop Summary:
Today the wife on and I decided to drive out to halfmoon bay and ride the coastal trail at the state park there. Well...all went as planned until somehow my wifes bike came off the rack on the freeway and fell, luckily the safety strap caught it and all it did was drag behind the car at 70 mph instead of pummeling the cars behind us. I thought our day would be ruined but thanks to bike works it was saved! He trued both wheels and were bought a seat to replace the newly road rashed stock unit. Great customer service, very knowledgeable and friendly people and an excellent deal on tbe work and seat we had done. If you guys read the forum here...THANK YOU, you saved my wife and I's first trail ride together!

Customer Service:
Excellent

Shop Summary:
Cyclists here are lucky having such a great resource. I've been dealing very regularly with this shop since it opened and have always had a great experience. Aside from normal maintenance items, I also occasionally need special order items or expert service on the classic Italian road bikes I restore. Chris and Matt always come through even on some of my rather bizarre mechanical service needs. They're also quite willing to special order items for me that almost no shop would normally ever carry.

Customer Service:
Tops - A+ - Friendly staff - Highly recommended.

Other Comments:
Stop by their NEW LOCATION in a restored Victorian house conveniently located on Kelly Ave. just off Hwy 1 and check out what now may be the coolest bike shop on the planet!
The shop is broadening its line to include more roadie gear. It also stocks fun, utility (comfort) bikes for general recreational use as well as a complete line of stock and custom-built mountain bikes.

Shop Summary:
Excellent shop in Half Moon Bay. It serves everything from your mountain bike racers to just needing a tire fixed on your kids bike. The owners (Chris and Mike) along with Ryan and Sean are very passionate about biking and deliver great customer service. They want to make sure you get what you need and never over sell you anything.

Shop Summary:
Up to date, latest proven technology inventory. Qualified ,competent,
knowledgable and friendly staff that live and know bicycles. Prices reasonable, not overinflated. Did I mention trustworthy.Awesome,hand made sign! This shop is first class!

Customer Service:
Great, the only shop within 60 miles of where I live(SF Bay Area, one of the most populated areas in the country) that was willing to help me find a 1" suspension fork for my old Merlin Titanium Mountain frame, rather than try to sell me a new bike or tell me my $1800 titanium frame was obsolete as every other shop I had been to had. I also had them custom lace a rear wheel about five years ago that I am still riding on and is still straight with a few minor truings. I do a lot of jumping too!

Other Comments:
As an X-racer (BMX long ago)who used to get parts for free or heavily discounted,and is used to building my own bikes I am very particular about where I shops , and don't want the irritation of someone who knows less about bicycles than I do telling me or deciding for me what I need to buy.
This is one of the few shops that I enjoy spending time in and hate to leave!
