Stay away from this shop! What we knew as Plaine's is NO MORE! Les Plaine (the psychotic owner) has fired anybody of value (well almost) and is terrorizing all the employees and every customer that comes through the door. His pricing strategy is right out of the 50's. Mark it up as high as you can and see how many sucker you can get to pay for it. His items are routinely priced way above MSRP and, when Les is around, it's always a brutally hard sell. He owns several shops in the area, so beware!

Response from the owner - 5 months ago
This poor review written by Richard Nathan is not because of any poor customer experiences but rather because of a personal grievance with Les the owner.

Extremely disappointed with the service I received from this shop. Very sloppy work that left my bike greasier than when I dropped it off. Grease on the frame, seat, and handle bars. A basic tune up does not include aligning handle bars with front wheel? Pathetic. Will never go back and plan to tell my friends to avoid this place of business. Overpriced beyond belief.

I purchased a Giant hybrid from Plaine & Son last year. I love it! Les was so helpful by listening to what I wanted out of my new bike (price range, functionality, etc). He pointed me in the right direction with bikes he thought would suit me. Plus, any bike you buy from them comes with a year of free service. Every time I go to this store I am greeted by friendly staff that are so willing to help with any aspect of what I need. They are so supportive of the cycling community. They also offer free clinics that will teach you how to change a tire or basic bike maintenance. Best cycling store in the area!

I have been a employee of Les Plaines for three years and i have never found any of the things Richard Rathan is saying to be true. The poor review written by Richard Nathan is not because of any poor customer experiences but rather because of a personal grievance with Les the owner.

Purchased a road bike and mountain bike from them, excellent help on choosing the right bike. Great atmosphere to shop for a bike and the staff are knowledge when you have questions about your bike components or fit. Great community rides that help you learn more about the sport or just meet people.
