Bell's Bicycle and Repair


Average Rating:    (3.61 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 18

This is the best shop in the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area.
James Bell is the owner and all the employees are extremely friendly and helpful when it came time to pick 1 bike of the 200 or more in stock, (and i was in more than 5 times) trying to pick the right bike for my budget.I finally purchased a Jamis Dakar ( 04 ) model and have had no issues with this bike in the last 2 years.
This is a road/mountian bike shop with seperate repair building next door to the shop.
Bell's even has carbon fiber road bikes and frame/forks for
the high end riders.

Shop Summary:
Awful experience. Tried to work out an issue with them and the communication has been disrespectful and unprofessional. STAY AWAY!!!

Shop Summary:
This shop has been here as long as I can remember which tells you that they must be doing something right. I was doing lots of research into an entry level mtb and went to several bike shops before deciding to check out the one I've seen for most of my life. When you walk in you see bikes everywhere! They have a bike that fits all categories of consumers. You can walk in and buy a very cost effective bike that is superior to any you can purchase at a local retailer or you can purchase a carbon fiber road bike. The versatility of this shop is great! Great for bike riders of all experience levels for sure!

Customer Service:
By far the best customer service of all the bike shops I've visited in the South Florida area. When you walk in they are usually pretty busy but they are quick to get to you if you need any help. If the bike shop is empty they'll acknowledge you and let you roam the store in peace if you'd like but they are always willing to help if you should need anything. As for the repair and service area its great! They can have up to four mechanics working at once if need be. The staff is great and friendly always willing to give you a helping hand and answer any and all questions from bikes to possible trails. Definitely the best store in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area!!

Shop Summary:
I'd been researching a good entry level mountain bike for a while. A friend highly suggested I go to Bell's, to get a great deal on a nicer bike. I ended up having one of the best buying experiences ever! The shop was packed with a large selection of bikes and accessories.

Customer Service:
The staff was busy, but got to me within minutes. ALL my questions were answered with patience and courtesy. I was on a tight budget, and they really worked with me. I ended up with a far more superior bike compared to the one I almost bought at another local shop! They also provide FOUR FREE tune-ups in the first year, a benefit unmatched by any other local shop. Bell's sales and service are tops! I'm letting everyone know!

Shop Summary:
Shop was packed with bikes. High end equipment. If you need a part, i'm sure they have it.

Customer Service:
Worst I've ever seen. I'm really very easy to please and not overly critical, however, this shop's customer service is the worst I have ever experienced. I entered the shop and 15 minutes later, no one had even spoken a word to me. No 'hello', 'how are you', the basic 'can i help you'. There were 3 employees in the shop, 2 of which were working on bikes, and another on a computer at the desk. I would understand if they were slammed with customers, however, i was the only customer in the store. Maybe they were having a bad day?? I will never go to this shop again nor do i suggest anyone else to do so as well.
