The absolutely worst place I have ever bought my bike. I asked them to put on an internal hub. I showed them my hub, and asked them "Can you do it?". They said "yes". Boy, were they mistaken. They called me in and told me my bike was ready. I go in, and it's not ready. Four weeks later, I decided to call them. They finally get their act together (so I thought) and told me to pick up my bike the next day. I rode it around the back and it seemed alright. When I got it home and rode it more, the shifter would only shift into three of the eight gears. The pedals would feel like they were slipping after I shifted. I take it back, they tell me it's alright. These clowns managed to throw out my perfectly good rear tire in the process. They threw out my handlebar plastic end piece. They threw out my rear reflector. They screwed up almost as much as you could possibly screw up. They even forgot to tighten my rear brakes. I had to take it to another shop so they could fix my hub so it would shift properly. I was out all $120 to these people. They refused to give any of my money back. They did replace me thrown out rear tire with a miss-sized replacement (35c vs. 32c front). Don't ever take your bike here for service, you won't get any.

Luis Wittman and Amy Flores were great! Walked in almost at closing, they had no problem staying and helping me pick out the right bike (which is perfect, by the way!) and installing my rack on the car. Definitely working at least 30 minutes after closing time and were perfectly kind and happy about it. Also, the bike and rack were less expensive there, so I got a deal in addition to the great service!

Bike City sucks. The people who work here are practically incompetent when it comes to repairing bicycles. They're not even bikers themselves. Never trust a bicycle repair man who doesn't ride a bike to work. I brought my bike in for an overhaul and they completely effed it up. After waiting for well over a week to have my bike returned to me, I had to bring it back the very next day due to the fact that is was not ride-able. Apparently they did not install the tube correctly. Nor did they true the rear wheel that they had replaced. Then, after they supposedly fixed what they had messed up in the first place, my bike got a flat tired due to their carelessness in replacing the tube. The hole in the tube was on the inside, against the wheel, not the outside. So it was obviously their fault for it being there. It was not a puncture hole from running over anything, I hadn't even ridden it yet. Needless to say, I was very frustrated after having to deal with these jokers. After calling them up and telling them about the flat, they said they didn't warranty bicycle tubes! Can you believe that? They were at fault! Again! Fortunately, the guy over at Bike World fixed the mess these guys made of my bike for free. That's right. For free. BEWARE! DO NOT TAKE YOUR BIKE FOR REPAIRS TO BIKE CITY!!! THIS PLACE SHOULD NOT BE IN BUSINESS! DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY. Take it to Bike World where they actually care about bikes. And yes, the people at Bike World are bikers. So you can trust them. Stay away from Bike City. Worst bike shop ever.

This is my LBS (local bike shop) and I've gone twice. First time to buy brakes for my motorized bike and my bike was obviously unwelcome. Didn't really care about that. Second time I went for a nine speed derailleur they sold me an eight speed one. I didn't realize till after I put it on and the high limit screw only went to eight. They are the closest shop and I don't mind paying a premium to get a part that same day and support bike shops.....but I'm done with these guys

I bought my first mountain bike here and, by far, I'm not disappointed at all. I talked to Luis Whittman at Bike City and he recommended the right bike for the money I wanted to spend. I still did my research and shopped around for several weeks and ended up right back where I started... at Bike City. These guys know all about bikes, (for they're riders themselves) honest, straight forward and will fit you with the best bike for your acquired needs and your budget.

The staff is knowledgable and very helpful, and I appreciated their down-to-earth, genuine attitude. I also love my lifetime free tune-ups after I bought my bike there. This is the place to go and I've become a believer in Jamis bicycles, which they carry.
