I'm curious to hear what is the vibe or the reputation of the the shop? Their wrenches, sales, fitting expertise and so on.

I've only been to the very small shop/kiosk at UCI (about 10 months ago). I went there to buy a U-lock. The guy who was working was friendly. However, when I arrived the shop appeared to be closed (when it should've been open). I poked around for a while, then the guy got out of his car and opened the shop. Apparently he was asleep because he rode a race in the Pasadena area earlier that morning. While I was there, he helped me pick an Axiom basket from a catalog and special ordered it for me. Overall, my experience was good.
