Love this place! I'm rather picky about my bikes, so I don't just hand out full stars without someone earning it. The techs here are sharp, particularly Jason (the guy who looks like Fabio). Their repair prices are reasonable and they have always been good to get my stuff turned around before an event or an important weekend. Tom, the GM, is a former racer and he knows how to make people happy. The 5 year maintenance program they have is worth way more than they charge for it. Check these guys out!

I bought a pair of Look Keo pedals at the San Rafael store (second comment about rude manager I noticed) for my bike - the next day I found a pair in my bike parts I forgot I had - try to take the $135 new ones back - they refused. Too bad - I was going to buy a 2016 Verge from them but now I've decided to buy my next bike from REI.

I've been a customer at Mike's bikes for many years, have purchased 2 bikes from them and helped friends purchase several more. There are lots of competitors in Marin so they have to keep their prices competitive (particularly so on Specialized as I believe they are one of their largest retailers). If you are a price shopper, wait for their seasonal sales or their big annual sale. That's when I bought my most recent mountain bike. They are also my go-to shop for service. Their prices are competitive and their work is good. The price they estimate on service is usually on their labor...it can come out higher if they have to replace parts. They have stylish cycling clothes but, because I'm a price shopper, I wait for sales at Performance.

This store has got everything for bike riding. Tons of bikes, tons of gear, and even an indoor test ride track. Wednesday afternoons they make their service techs available to teach you how to maintain your bike. I bought a Cannondale (a great bike), and they have been very helpful. I stripped out a bolt, but rather than sell me a new seat riser, they improvised a fix - for free. They have a $100 5 year service warranty they sell which buys you all the routine service for those first 5 years. Especially for mountian bikes, which tend to get really beat up, this is a great deal.

I did not buy a bike here, I felt Trek Bikes had a better bike for my price range. I felt like I would be a charity case in my price range ($2200) and would have to settle for whatever they could come up with. I'm not sure if their sales folks are commission base, but I had to go with Trek. I do recommend this shop as years ago, I've had service done and their mechanics are great!!

I walked into the store today for the first time and was amazed and a bit overwhelmed by the huge selection of bikes. Almost immediately, I was approached by a friendly, knowledgeable salesperson, Erik Lindquist. After asking what I was looking for, he guided me to the bikes that fit my price range and needs, helped me choose one that fit correctly and an hour later, I walked out a happy owner of a new bicycle. In response to the negative reviews, I must say, I spent just under $600 on the bike and do not believe the service could have been better...even if I was spending $6000.00. I look forward to years of enjoyment on my bike and returning to Mike's for service. Thank you!!

Expert staff and wonderful selection. You'll pay top-dollar here, but its worth it. I've purchased a bike, had another services, and picked up a pump and a few other pieces, and each time, it was a great experience. Pro tip: there's parking out back, on Fifth... you don't have to hunt for parking on Fourth St.

I've taken 3 different bikes in for repairs at different times. Each time it's the same. I get a quote, ask if it's solid, they say yes. When I pick up the bike they ask for more money and when I complain and show the quote, they treat me like I'm cheating them. On top of this, the repairs are sloppy, or not done at all. Everytime I've had to bring the bike back -- and once again they treat me like it's my fault. They used to be great, but as they've grown, they're worst than mediocre. Sharon
