Oakland Spokes is a marvelous bike shop and community hub. Brian, the owner, is one of those really rare people who has the experience, kindness, worldliness, expertise, humility, business savvy, honesty, dedication, and straight-up grit to bring Oakland's residents a bike shop that truly puts them first, ahead of profit, regardless of whether they can afford the insane rents adjacent to Lake Merritt or not (Oakland Spokes is technically a nonprofit, and Brian does not draw a salary). In short, this bike shop kicks some serious ass :-). Oakland Spokes is founded on helping, teaching, and empowering the bike-riding community, and it does it better than any other shop I've come across in the Town. Whether you're a current bike rider or not, make it a priority to get down to Oakland Spokes. You can even enjoy a free cup of tea while you're down there :-).

RE: Jon Jeter (SPOKES FIRST REVIEW) "2 weeks ago- I don’t know anything about the shop, but apparently the owner fashions himself as the block enforcer. Or, as he stated, “I own a business on this block, so just trying to “keep the peace”; a non sequitur If I ever heard one. He witness what was probably the mildest dispute over a parking spot ever; once I saw it was an older gentleman I was done, it was over." Answer: You are right. You don't know anything about my shop, But I clean the sidewalk everyday in my block from the Chevron Station Past the UPS Store, Old Crow Tattoo Parlor, My shop, Ansara Restaurant, and In the Groove Dance Studio, So I see all the great neighbors that greet me with thanks and gratitude since I opened my doors. From your zippy Fiat, your belligerent harassment of your elder by trying to swoop his parking space as he reverse parallel parked was both disrespectful and full of threat to another human being. I did as I saw necessary because I witnessed your angst as you threatened and provoked him to “get out of his car” to confront you. I stood by after you threatened the man and watched as you entered the UPS store after flipping a u-turn and parking across the street. I despise bullies and people who whip their cars around and flaunt their masculinity and self importance. Behavior like that reminds me of the same people that blame everyone else for their own poor attitude. I am glad you think I am the parking gestapo and peace keeper of UPS and I appreciate your three stars even though you have never stepped foot in my business. I think your seemingly narcissistic and self centered attitude need a bit of tweaking in order for anyone to take your criticism of another human being or business seriously. Hopefully you can get that adjustment by getting out of your little doot doot car and come purchase a nice bike so you can ride off the angst So again thank you for your rant and your three stars and slow down and enjoy your mornings. There really were a lot of happy people in the UPS store and on the street that day , but you were unable to see any of it. And for anyone reading this, After I tidy up the block for you, I come inside and turn on two tea kettles and put on some eclectic jams. We build repair and sell bikes for every age and development of human beings from balance bikes to Adult trikes. I specialize in making bikes for non standard european bodies and have clients that are slightly bigger and smaller than usual. If you have a disability we will help you find assistive accessories or assistive bikes to accommodate your special needs. Most of all, We have bikes ranging from $250 - $8000 so you can be miserly or indulgent and have a good time dreaming up your next ride. Just Saying ~Why recreate the wheel ... when you can tighten the Spokes

Super friendly, community-minded owner. It's a funky little bike shop that brings even more character to one rich and creamy block of Grand Ave.

Great new shop right near Lake Merrit. Its a cool place to hang out and learn about bikes. He does a great job of making sure customers are informed and educated about bikes before they purchase.

I don’t know anything about the shop, but apparently the owner fashions himself as the block enforcer. Or, as he stated, “I own a business on this block, so just trying to “keep the peace”; a non sequitur If I every heard one. He witness what was probably the mildest dispute over a parking spot ever; once I saw it was an older gentleman I was done, it was over. But the owner of the bike shop (or is that security for the UPS store?), came to the store to, ‘keep the peace’. He started with the assumption there was going to be drama. He hung around inside the door and his presence was similar to when police in military regalia show up to, “keep the peace”. So to the owner, I hope you read this. As a bike rider, clearly you’re morally superior but I’ll give it a try anyway. I found your behavior, tone, etc., condescending and in a way threatening. I didn’t know you from Adam (or is that George Zimmerman?) and found your presence a little disconcerting. I just knew that you didn’t have jurisdiction or authority, so I wanted to know, just how were you planning to, “keep the peace”? That’s why I asked about your enforcement arm. I would imagine that, if UPS believes they need security, they’re more than capable of sorting that out themselves. You might want to begin with the idea that we’re all capable and then work from there. You are a business owner on that block, simple as. Your presence added to the environment, something that otherwise wouldn’t have been there. Take Care. PS: As for the condescending accountability comment. Our role as tax paying citizens and the constitution outlines our accountability to each other.

After a long cold ride my buddy and I were going to grab some pizza at the Round Table on Grand Ave. Walking past a shop we saw a little hand written sign, "Spokes," in a hallway with bikes in the window. Curious we walked in to check out this new bike shop. It was exactly what we've been looking for. Bryan and Pearl really know their business and unlike some other bike shops we have visited they were right down our alley. My friend and I built our own Ebikes, Bryan builds his own Ebikes. When Bryan heard we made our own bikes he was interested. At other stores that immediately gets you the cold shoulder. Most Ebike shops only want to sell you their $5500 underpowered Chinese factory assembled bike. And most bike stores feel that Ebikes aren't "real" bikes. We actually had a guy get out of his car in a parking lot and tell us "we're doing it wrong." My bike is around 16 years old. Bryan told me getting the parts I needed was no problem. He knew exactly what I needed and his prices were rock bottom and I felt good giving my money to a local shop. And when they say "lounge" they mean it. Plenty of seating and coffee and tea are available as well as good music.
