Happy 4th of July!
We've decided to close on Monday and Tuesday, the 3rd and 4th of July, to spend time with family, friends, and bikes! Enjoy the Holiday - we'll be back on Wednesday afternoon.
New Road Demo Fleet!
We've just completed a re-do of our road bike demo fleet. We're now equipped with a nice assortment of Giant Defy Advanced Pro carbon endurance road bikes with SRAM hydro discs and 22 speed extended range drivetrains, as well as Orbea Orca road bikes with Shimano Di2 electronic shifting. Both the Defy, and Orca are kick ass endurance road bikes for Nor Cal - sucking up the bumps on our beat up roads, and even allowing you to venture on to an occasional fire break or gravel road. Ready to set up a demo? Call, e-mail, or reserve your demo right here on our website in the upper right hand corner.
Transition Bikes! Oh Yes, We Did!
Precise. Pragmatic. Inclusive. Irreverent. These words describe our approach to retail, and to no one's surprise, offer an assessment of Transition Bikes' way of designing and making mountain bikes. After batting our eyelashes at these guys for sometime, we decided it was time to act. So stoked to announce it's official - we are now San Francisco's Transition dealer. And we're going to market with guns a blazin'. We're busy building demo versions of Transition's premier carbon trail and enduro bikes, the Patrol and Scout. We'll hop up these demo's with SRAM 1 by drivetrains, Rock Shox Pike forks, Reverb 150mm droppers, and Spank Oozy Trail wheelsets. Call or come by to set up a demo and see these bikes first hand.
Demo Bike Sale!
It's that time of year when we need to start making room for the latest new demo bikes, so our current fleet needs to go. This is a great chance to save some cash, and still get a warranty, and our legendary after sale support. We have a smart assortment of higher end demo's from Yeti, Rocky Mountain, and Giant. Give us a call for the latest pricing and availability.
Our New Shop Video
Special thanks to San Francisco's 12FPS for our new shop video featuring music from The Black Lillies - we wanted to create a brief movie introducing folks to our retail store, legendary workshop, and guided mountain bike tours - thanks for takin' a look.
Our workshop - the heart and soul of our business.
Not really anything new, but our service department is the essence of our operation. Our entire staff is competent in the workshop, with the best tools and up to date training to make your bike purr. Our technicians have been with us years, not months, and are passionate cyclists who empathize with other riders.
We can handle any job, but thrive on sophisticated work: suspension overhauls, pro builds, custom wheels. Parts are cleaned in an industrial grade ultrasonic cleaning tank, suspension forks are removed from the bike and overhauled on a dedicated work bench, and bearings are installed with precision presses. We are as comfortable upgrading a Di2 system with the latest firmware as we are installing a basket on your townie bike.
We love that our shop is just that: a work-shop. It's not a clean room or a laboratory. We work on bikes here. And bikes are a wonderful mix of metals, rubber, carbon fiber, plastic, dirt, grease and oil. Our workshop is open, clean, well lit, and organized. But, we don't cry when grime from your bike falls on the floor, or we get some grease on the workbench.
We make your service experience a pleasure from start to finish. We do a thorough triage on every bike at intake to determine what work should be considered. We provide a clear, written estimate of all work before we begin. We communicate with you - like us, we assume you don't like surprises. We're happy to schedule appointments (call or e-mail us) for your service job, minimizing down time. We can also pick up your bike for service, and return it to you when the work is done :)
Let us show you why Northern California is the birth place of mountain biking. Don't waste time cobbling together a rides in unfamiliar areas. Let our guides get you to the sweet trails - instantly. All our tours are led by expert guides with intimate knowledge of the best trails. Our half and full day tours originate from our pro-level retail store, and include use of a high end demo bike. Tours start at only $250. We can craft a tour for all levels and riding interests. Call the shop hot line: 415-441-6294, or e-mail us, to set up your tour: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Probably not. Shop Owner, Brian Bruckner, weighs in on the the illusion of the internet's "great deals", and other aspects of today's "main street killing", on-line information and commerce culture. Read all of Brian's comments here.
