Curiously, I got my rear wheel stolen while my bike was locked up outside of here. One of the store employees came by while I was picking up the sad carcass of my bike and said, "Yeah, I saw someone messing around with your wheel." He locked up his bike and went inside. Not that you're really supposed to be a babysitter or anything, but you'd think employees would be aware of what was happening in front of their store. 

Then again, before I had my wheel stolen, they provided great service and let me fill my tires up a few times and even tighten my cranks for no charge. Randy's right. They don't up-sell. The Bike Lane pretty much gives straight forward service.

These guys are great.  They don't "up sell" repairs - if you don't need a tune-up, they will tell you!  They are my one-and-only "go to",  They stand behind their work. Prices are reasonable.  Hours are awesome.
