Shop Summary:
SInce new owner has come in. They have gone downhill. Especially avoid the north store. The new owner was hitting on my girlfriend in front of me. He is obviously not a business owner and fancies himself a competitive racer. Pretty sure he dopes. Check it out!

Customer Service:
Horrible service, pretty sure everyone who works there hates their job! Lots of turn over, never the same unhappy face twice.

Other Comments:
Will be out of business soon!

Shop Summary:
I rented a mtn bike from this shop and was quite satisfied with the bike. The shop staff was courteous and willing to make our rental experience great. They rent high quality mtn bikes from Specialized. In fact my friend got a bike which had never been ridden before. Overall, I would rent from this shop again. Also, they gave me something to tell my friends back home in NC when they said we brought the bikes back "excessively dirty." Thanks for the humorous memory.

Shop Summary:
The lead mechanic, of the (Solana Beach) B&L give me a smart-a*s attitude, as I being a B&L patron. Took the time to tell why I been coming lesser. As this being a competitive business.
It's because I moved closer to the B&L near the airport.
"I live closer to your other store now."
"ISN'T THAT NICE." Face looking downward, the entire time. Since before I said my comment.
Being concentrated on that bike, on the bikestand. That's ALL he wants.
Never looking at me. Whom he's built bikes for, before.
I take that as 'Just get out of here.'

Reviewed by: Diesel ,  Cross Country Rider

Shop Summary:
The brand list is incorrect. B&L carries Orbea, Seven, Serotta, Specialized and Electra. They have a lot of Road Bikes, Triathlon Bikes, Cruisers, kids bikes and several MTBs. I enjoy this shop (Solana Beach) it has a warm atmosphere. I love the skylights, the comfy couch and the music selection.

Customer Service:
Unlike the shop down the street from them, rhymes with "Tight Row", every time I enter the shop I am greeted. I like the fact they have learned my name and don't just call me sir. The service department is always busy. Last time I took my bike in there was a week turn around. I would rather take my bike to a shop that has a long turn around than one with none. It shows they are busy.

Other Comments:
Special orders take about a week so if you are in need of some rare part it might take awhile. I have gained a lot of great friends from this shop, I don't know what I would do without them.
