Shop Summary:
Busy shop.

Customer Service:
A employee was with me right away, but was working on something while he talked to me. The repair estimate was extremely high--both the parts price and the labor price and the repair was on the easy, low-skill side. The prices on the bikes in the store were way way too high. I felt like I was in a Mercedes Benz dealership repair shop. I thought bike riding was a blue collar thing...

Other Comments:
Won't step into this shop ever again if I can help it.

Shop Summary:
I'M DONE with AJ's. I am just getting into biking & I have a road & mountain bike of which both are used and require repairs & upgrades. So I was shopping @ least once a week at aj's & I have bought tires tubes peddles etc. I always felt like they were rude but I chalked it up as if maybe this is how bikers act. I made a special order & was promised a couple days, after 12 business days still no product & I was told they would place order the next after I complained...No thanks, cancelled order & have since visited other bike shops in Lakeland and Tampa & guess what All bikers are NOT Pricks!!! Just the onces @ AJs.

Customer Service:
Always arrogant ...If you are New into biking go straight past AJs to another shop. These guys give a bad name to the sport!!!

Other Comments:
Never again

Shop Summary:
decent selection of bikes...

Customer Service:
Went in several times to look at a new full suspension 29er. They are very much about telling you wha you want and make the sale. They are Rude. They have terrible customer service and focus strictly on the sale. If your wallet is out they will pay attention. It's the experience of driving in to a car dealer. stay away.

Shop Summary:
Great shop. great selection but kinda pricey.

Customer Service:
I went there to look at a specialized HT and dude tried to shove a Trance 3 down my throat. That Dude was telling me what I wanted.
There must be more Trance's in Brandon Fl then anywhere in th USA lol Everyone is real cool except that that one dude.
REAL cool.

Other Comments:

Took a freewheel to be replaced and all I got was my old one back stuffed with so much grease that it ruined my brake pads. What do you think im stupid and wouldnt notice? But then again they trued my rim at no charge cause a competing shop fugged it up. Great shop except for that one dude.
