Shop Summary:
I ride my all mountain bike hard in the Santa Monica/Brentwood Mountains; Mammoth etc., and have little or no time, nor the will to do any maintenance. I don't even really ever clean my bike...

I have taken my GT Force Carbon (Expert) all mountain bike to several other stores, and in each case there was minimal personal service and lack attention or followup.

As such I have pretty high demands when I take my bike in for servicing.
Bike Improve has the best service center of any store that I have used in LA. I highly recommend using them and have confidence in recommending them.

Customer Service:
Very friendly, courteous, professional and personable.
They remember you by name and have a direct connection, you are not merely an order number lost in the schedule.

Other Comments:
Here are the advantages that stuck out for me:
1. Very knowledgeable and able to make responsible and effective suggestions.
2. Corrected problems which and saved me replacing needless parts, which another store couldn't figure out.
3. Suggested upgraded parts to eliminate a recurring problem and hence wasting money.
4. Hands-on attention and not some big service department where you are merely a number.
5. Bike was returned, repaired, upgrade and fully detailed.

This is a breath of fresh air compared to their competitors...highly recommend them!

Shop Summary:
High end rides and hand picked brands. Pivot, Scott, Jamis, Morewood web site says Titus - but non on hand when I went in last.

Bike service and repair is the what draws people over and over. Nir was a HD racer and has no fear ( but has kids now ) and choose to be a good family man. The shop guys are on a few night rides regularly that experience makes them thorough careful mechanics that are a cut above the rest.

Customer Service:
Bussy shop with good turn around on bike repairs (while you wait) on the easy stuff. That while you wait is tough if you're third in line. Great mechanics are hard to find.

Other Comments:
Nir has first hand experience on race ready rides. Lots of carbon bits bolts and tested equipment. Demo bikes and rental for some models. I'm Going to trying an XL 29er

Reviewed by: mtb888 ,  Cross Country Rider

Shop Summary:
Nir has saved my bike so many times in the past few months by performing last minute tweaks before weekend ride or before leaving the country or before a weekend ride. Both his "bike-improving" and his customer service are beyond 5/5 and more like 10/5. He has done general maintenance, breeding disk brakes, reat/front shock adjustment, break squeek buster, new bike built consult, etc. I have 100% trust in his skills and knowledge and am very very picky in who touches my bike. Highly recommended. You will not get this kind of service anywhere else.

Shop Summary:
Nir is the best wrench I've ever used in the LA area. He came over to pick up my bike for some work on the drivetrain and it was back in my hands in less than 24 hours. Not only was he prompt, but he also does absolutely excellent job at a very reasonable price. His knowledge and skills are second to none!

Other Comments:
I'd highly recommend Nir to anybody with bike issues or in need of a thorough tuneup. He always makes it a point that his customers know what was wrong and what he did to correct it. Just as importantly, he's a passionate rider and a super guy.

Customer Service:
If you are in the LA area look no longer. Nir provides the most professional and personal service you can get. From the very first moment you feel his enthusiasm to the sport. Some people are lucky to combine business with pleasure, Nir is definitely one of them. If you like to listen, he will explain to you everything you need to know about the problem and the fix. if not, be sure Nir will fix whatever you throw on him. Prices are very reasonable as well.

Other Comments:
Bike improve gives VIP service for everyone.
