These guys are great. Even when they are busy, like during the xmas holidays, they always have a smile and are dealing with the crowds gracefully, and with class. The 6 or so times I've been in to shop, they always provided great guidance and prices that are more than fair, and often less expensive than many online retailers. Keep it local, and drop in to see these guys for bikes or boards. Great shop.
I had good experiences with the original owner, but sadly my recent experiences have been less than satisfactory. I'm out $160 for repairs/maintenance on two bicycles, and unfortunately the issues were not fixed. Not only that, but one of the bicycles was actually worse after they "tuned" it up, and now it can't shift into 1st or 2nd gear. As the previous reviewer said, it's great to support small local businesses but I just can't get behind this one in its current level of service.
While Bike Peddler looks like one of those local stores we all love to support, my experience after buying two new bikes there is that they are only concerned with profit maximization. They provided absolute no guarantee for their work and they are more expensive than other stores. Sadly, my recommendation is “two thumbs down
