What Our Customers Are Saying

“Bill, I assembled the bike last Saturday and rode about 10 miles. The winds were in excess of 25 MPH so it wasn’t a real enjoyable venture. The bike on the other hand was great. I really enjoyed the blue tooth shifting, the bike geometry is a smooth ride, the Garmin is fun, the pedals/clips work great, etc. I’m happy with the purchase of this bike. And I’m glad I had the opportunity to do business with you. Once I get some miles under my belt, I’d like to have you make some tuning adjustments such as the seat, etc, either when you’re in LA or this summer I’ll stop by the store in Auburn. Thanks again.”
