Shop Summary:
Stay clear of these guys. If you think performance bikes are bad, these guys are the illegitimate younger brother. Took my mtn. bike in for a problem with shifting. Nothing more annoying then having a shifting problem while on the trail!!!!! Had to take it back 3 times after they told me it was good to go, then they say it's the cable, then they say it's the chain, then they say it's the derailleur, what the f*#@!. Their the mechanics!!!!!!! not me, I could have replaced everything my self at that rate and they had the nerve to charge me a couple hour to trouble shooting time. They don't like it if you have your own parts. They make a lot of money off you when you buy parts from them , no price break , so they really started to get an attitude. Stay clear of anybody mechanics named mino, or if they have a soul patch, or gotte or JUST STAY CLEAR !!!!!

Shop Summary:
Good selection of Bikes. Elsworth, Ibis, Intense and Giant are prevalent. Good tool selection. Excellent part selection.

Customer Service:
Best thing about this shop is the service. I have never left without feeling they have done everything in their power to help. Not a bunch of bike snobs like Beyond Bikes.

Shop Summary:
This is the best shop in town. Have been going there since they opened. If they do not have what you are looking for they will get it for you! Carry Ellesworth, Ibis, Giant and a varity of others bikes. I can not leave the place without spending money.

Customer Service:
Charlie and his staff are great. Never pushy to make a sale and always happy to help out. Will always answer questions without an attitude. When I decided to purchase a Road Bike they helped me get it right. They have built my last two Mountain Bikes. They do not sell the Mountain Bike that I ride (now fault of the shop), but they are always willing to take care of me.

Other Comments:
All the shop needs is hot coffee when I show up to visit!!!! They sell me everything else!!!!

Shop Summary:
Great full service neighborhood shop with all the bling you can imagine and plenty of the big brands at competitive prices.

Customer Service:
I've always had a pleasurable time when I visit Cal Coast. The staff is knowledgeable in all aspects of biking.

Other Comments:
The visit that I was most impressed with was when my girlfriend told me she wanted a new bike to commute to and from work. Since this not an area that I know much about, I immediately knew where to go. The staff immediately greeted us upon walking in the door but was not pushy in the least bit. We told them that we were looking for a commuter bike and we just wanted to look around at first. A few minutes later, Aaron greeted us and started to figure out what my girlfriend wanted an needed in a new bike. He then proceeded to describe the various aspects of the available offerings in a manner that I couldn't do any easier. Thanks to everyone there and you have two customers for life!

Shop Summary:
Very knowledgeable and friendly staff, well stocked shop. If they don't have what you are looking for, they will order it in asap... and match any price - even internet I believe. No attitude here, just a good bunch of guys that make sure you leave happy every time.

Customer Service:
I recently decided to give full suspension a second try after having an Epic a few years back and finding it just not functional for me. Alex was extremely helpful (and knowledgeable) in helping me decide which bike would best suit my needs. He spent a great deal of time with me over the course of several weeks, working with me closely to gain knowledge on my choices. Between his input and much research, I decided on a 2009 Giant Reign 1. Unfortunately, Cal Coast did not have one in stock and Giants warehouse was empty as well. With much guilt, I purchased the bike at another local Giant dealer. The bike store where I made the purchase did not fit me on the bike, and didn't even bother to explain anything to me about the bike either - they just took my money and sent me on my way. When I went to Cal Coast to thank Alex for all of his help and told him of my guilty purchase, he was only concerned with my final outcome of happiness. When he found out about the lack of service from the other shop, he insisted I bring my bike in. Not only did he fit me on the bike, he thoroughly explained to me how the suspension works and all of its functions. Now thats service... and class.

Other Comments:
To Alex and all of the crew at Cal Coast - you guys rock! I just wish you had the bike in stock so I could have given you my money...

BTW, the Reign 1 is F****** AWESOME, I love it! Thanks again Alex for all of your help!
