Kudos to Surf City Cyclery

These guys rock! I just got back from there. I needed them to check out why my bike was 'chirping' and a couple of other minor things.

Turns out my bottom bracket was defective so they tracked one down, I picked it up, and they replaced it, fixed my ongoing gearing/shifting issue and re-wrapped my bars. For cheap. I told him (Candy, the service mgr) how I appreciated it and he told me 'no problem, I can tell you like being on your bike and I like taking care of my customers'.

He gave me some of his business cards, told me to hand them out and that he'd honor a 10% discount for any service brought in.

I hung out while the bike was getting serviced, talking to him about, what else, riding , and told him about this place. We'll see if he makes it over.

Anyway, I know this shop's been mentioned before but after today, I thought it deserved it's own thread. They really do know how to take care of their customers!

There a good shop. Most of the people there are from the old SuperGo that is now a TeamPerformance shop. I'm glad they open the new shop. You get great service now and you don't have to wait a week for it!

I'm always up for a good bike shop, and while this one is a wee bit outta my way (La Habra is clear at the other side of Beach Blvd.) it's been mentioned enough that I'm sure it'll be well worth my drive.
