V.C. was recommended by a friend. I'm 67 years old and just getting back into cycling. My old crossover bike and I needed some new parts so I got a new helmet and mirror and the bike got a new memory foam seat for my tender bottom. The salesperson spent plenty of time explaining the best gear for me and didn't try to oversell me. New bike someday? Tuneups? Gear? I'm heading north. I'm sure there are good bike shops closer, but when I find a good merchant I stick with them and the other reviews for Vancouver Cyclery verified my conclusion.
