"It's always prudent to allow a slight gap to open between your front wheel and the wheels in front of you as you enter a turn. This little cushion will allow you to react to any problems those riders encounter. If you're glued to someone else's wheel, you're at his mercy throughout the corner. If your wheel is outside his, you're relinquishing a lot of control over your line through the turn."

Don't miss out on the last Cyclocross race of the year in Oklahoma. It's here in OKC, run by the OKCX guys and is going to be a mud-sloppin' good time!

Often this time of year our biggest challenge as a shop is who get's to go to the mountain bike race on the weekend! Check out what we are all riding this year to hit up the trails.

I've been in Charley's several times and there is some truth to those reviews indicating the employees might exhibit some mild disdain for non-hardcore riders. It's hard to describe because it was not rude and it wasn't even overt but it was there in a very subtle fashion that was easy to pick up on. It wasn't enough to discourage me from going back but I wouldn't ever just stop by to browse or for a chat. Having said that, they were friendly and helpful and the mechanical work I had done there was the best I've experienced in the metro (also confirmed by several reviews I've read). If I want to chat bikes or just make a "friendly" bike shop visit, I'll go someplace else. If I need some serious mechanical work done or a wheel built, I'll get in and out of Charley's in the minimum time it takes to make the transactions.

I must say, this is a 5 star shop. Having just moved to the area, I came by the store for two reasons: to buy a floor pump and to check out the closest shop to me. After walking out the door it was clear that I needn't look further for a shop to call home. Tony was of great help, spending nearly half an hour explaining all the local info. "I can show you a cool ride, come around here," and with that I'm behind the counter looking at a Garmin Connect mapped route for a local ride. He then goes further to tell me all about great mountain biking and road riding places. And, get this, all why I have ZERO products in my hand. This is the kind of service one can only dream for: a set of people who genuinely care about what they do and the people in their community. These guys must know that genuine help and kindness goes a long way when it comes to the consumer's dollar. After spending the time with Tony, I couldn't help but make a purchase, which I originally was looking to do online. Why? Because Tony went out of his way to make it happen, show me the differences in products and prices, and spent time going over the warranty. I walked into the shop thinking about a pump, I left only thinking about how bad I want to ride my bike. Thanks Tony, I'll definitely be back, and be sending any business I can your way - Charley's Bicycle Laboratory beyond deserves it.

I recently had my 10 year old bike overhauled by Charley's. They did an amazing job getting it back to just as new shape and it rides fantastic. The service there is great and everyone is treated like family. We are lucky to finally have a top tier shop in NW OKC that supports cyclists at every level of fitness and experience. The free cycling bootcamp in the winter was also fun as well. I know I get better thinks to the free coaching.

I was new to the area and figured I'd check this place out. They have a great selection of Specialized, and the staff was really nice. A lot of shops seem to talk down to you if you don't ride an all carbon bike and ride a few hundred miles a week, but this place was very nice and was willing to talk about which ever bikes were in your price range and were best for your ability. I will definitely be making Charley's Bike Lab my LBS.

After reading so many good reviews, I decided to give this store a call and a visit if they had what I wanted. The young lady on the phone said they had the part I needed, and since that was the only one I could find, I decided to make the 24.7 mile drive. My luck they didn't have the exact part I was told on the phone and it didn't seem like I was welcomed. The guy made me feel as if I was there to steal something or buy for something that was stolen. It was a very uncomfortable experience! I did buy one item for $20, although my receipt states I bought two misc. items @ $10. :D Something tells me if I don't find what I need close by, ordering will be my best option next time.

I've really loved getting to know the CBL crew. This is much more than a bike shop - it's very obvious that this is a community. CBL does a great job with this, and has made me as a newcomer feel very welcome (and I didn't even buy my bike there). I'm looking forward to doing a great deal of business here in the coming weeks and months.

This shop is awesome! The service has always been the best done by the best and most experienced cyclist! What more could you ask for! Great deals and great apparel, always realistic practical suggestions for your individual cycling and financial needs. I can't say enough about the staff and how supportive and honest these guys are. So if you are searching for a shop who will provide all these qualities I would take advantage of all Charleys Bicycle Lab has to offer. Don't get stuck somewhere buying something you don't need and fitted to a bike that is not the right size! They will help you make an investment you will never regret!

Probably the best bike shop on the planet!!!!! Charley really knows his stuff and he has a fantastic team. I have had my bikes built and tuned by the man himself for years and would recommend him to anyone. My Campy setup shifts incredibly!!! His background is incredible and fantastic attention to detail. The approach is tailored to the customers needs and its all about customer service. Something I feel lacking all over these days. Great selection of products, bikes, clothing and service, from bike fitting to advice. Plus if he doesn't have it he will go out of his way to get it if it's out there and make you happy. Get out and Ride!!! (up to Charley's bike store!!)
