The experience of riding bikes on the seawall was really great. I rented seven bikes for our group and we thoroughly enjoyed actually riding bikes on the seawall. If you have smaller children the bikes here will all be too big. I would think anyone...More

We damaged the brakes on my wife's bike and needed a knowledgeable trustworthy shop. Sean helped us out and they completed the repair the same morning we dropped it off. Fast and reasonable repairs, we were very pleased!

Ordered a bike from there. They said it would arrive in a few days however it took several weeks. Lots of excuses and lies from the owner. I won't spend another cent in this place.
