Shop Summary:
I was walking by to go to a buddies place and stopped by as I needed a new water bottle cage. Super nice road bikes in this shop, very chi chi, so I was kind of expecting an attitude when all I wanted was a bottle cage. Not the case at all!

Customer Service:
Super nice guys working while I was in. Looked like maybe 2 guys in the shop and 1 was wrenching. Had another customer so the wrench stops and asks to help. I just ask for a bottle cage and he breaks out about 10 different cages from stupid cheap to stupid expensive (they make $200 bottle cages??!! lol). Other customer was finished so the sales guy took over and was very nice. Rung me out and invited me to go for a group ride with them. Nice shop, too bad I'm not in the area more often.

Other Comments:
If you like road riding (I'm not much of a roadie) bring a bucket for the drool as they had some pretty crazy rigs here. Cool neighborhood shop feel to the place, definitely a refreshing change from the big impersonal places and the little "hardcore" places where your riding skill is defined by how much you can drink...there's a place for those too though!
Funny I'm rating them a 5 on technical knowledge but they did know the weight of every cage off the top of their heads! lol

Shop Summary:
A good shop overhall, they sell hight end bikes, good products. It is well located, the marina is a great place.
But but, you need to have plenty of time.

Customer Service:
not that good, you get good advice but you will wait for ages.
The bikes are never done, I waitted 6 months for a stock Turner.
Don't expect a free watter bottles - 6 bikes ahead, all of them worth more than $9000 I am still waitting

Other Comments:
good guys

Shop Summary:
Overall a good shop. My girlfriend has bought a road bike and 2 mountain bikes from them. Mostly a road shop, as you can tell but the number of road bikes in stock as compared to mountain bikes (about 10 times as many road bikes as mountain bikes). They carry mountain bikes from Seven, Turner, and Santa Cruz- all excellent brands.

Customer Service:
High level customer service. The bike builds are high quality, and they spent a lot of time fitting her to the bikes and in showing her how to use the bike.

Shop caters to high end bikes, so newbies may not feel as comfortable there.

Other Comments:
In rating, I dinged their technical expertise and overall rating a point each because of the lack of focus on mountain bikes. If this review was for roadbikereview.com, I would have given them all 5s.

This is a follow-up to my review - the shop has been going through some changes since Clay (the founder) passed away. Not sure yet what will come of this shop. been some more key people leaving.
