Any reputable bike shops around Diamond Bar/Pomona/San Dimas etc?

Hey folks. My bottom bracket started clicking kind of nasty. Does anyone know of a good reputable bike shop around Pomona, Chino, Diamond Bar, San Dimas, Clairemont areas? I live in Pomona, so I'm kind of in the middle and I can go anywhere there's a good reputable service. I wanted to get my bottom bracket checked out.
Thanks for all input!

San Dimas has Incycle. Claremont has Coates. I don't know about parts farther south, sorry.

+1 for Incycle. Awesome shop. Well, I've only been to the Pasadena one, but I assume San Dimas is similar.

The San Dimas shop is good, too, they've done some work for me and I stop in whenever I'm in the neighborhood.

Do they have the cool tropical rain forest with fountains and super hot bikes as you walk in?

They've got a lot of bikes, I haven't paid much attention to the ambiance.

Coates is actually in Pomona. It's in that border area that I've heard referred to as Claremona. The address is actually Pomona though.

For the original poster-Incycle has a store in San Dimas as well as Chino. The San Dimas store has more flashy bikes than Chino but doesn't have a tropical rain forest. Depending on what part of Pomona the original poster lives in, either the Chino store or the San Dimas store could be convenient.

I've received great service from Coates in the last couple of years (Town and Foothill). You might be near Diamond Cyclery (Diamond Bar Blvd and Grand). Haven't been in the store for a while but Carlos is a good guy and knows his stuff. Small shop but have always received good quick service.

Last I heard, Diamond Bar Cyclery had closed. Don't quote me.

All I was making reference to is you said "don't quote me" and I turned around and quoted you. I was much funnier in the 2nd grade, unfortunately my material hasn't changed.

Oh, I got it. I thought it was funny too. I was just explaining why I didn't want to be quoted. I appreciate the immature humor and bathroom jokes.

You were right--Diamond Bar Cyclery is no longer in business.

About a year ago, there was a sign at the door that mentioned the store would be closed for a while due to a family emergency. A few weeks ago I noticed the store wasn't there anymore.

Kevin over there is a really good, knowledgeable guy. Great service, and selection there is pretty darn good. The floor space isn't all that big, so there's a lot of bikes/merchandise crammed in there, but it's a really good shop.

If you're willing to drive to Ontario or Corona (not too sure how close they are to DB, Pomona, and SanDimas), look up JensonUSA. My brother in law just got hooked up with a great 07 Lemond road bike last weekend. I haven't been there yet but they did a great job building up the bike quickly. The bro in law also mentioned that the customer service was great (he went to the Ontario location).

I went to San Dimas Incycle store last week and got my bottom bracket replaced for $40 parts and labor. Everything works great. The shop was super nice and got my bike done in less then one hour (on a Thursday morning). Outstanding stuff!
Thanks to all for suggestions!
