Just took my vintage racer into this shop.

Customer Service

I called first as i had taken the bike to another vancouver bike shop and was called back to say it was'nt worth fixixng ( e.g they just could't be bothered fixixng it as it was'nt a new bike) Back at West Point it was different. When i called i had a great convo with the manager, and when i got to the shop all the staff were freindly and they made me feel that i was'nt wrong wanting to ride a vintage racer. When i went to pick up the bike after the service again the staff were really freindly and knowleable and gave me some great recomendations. i even bought a saddle for $10 as they had some on a deal.

I have found the staff here very helpful when I have any problems with my Chariot Bike Trailer. The problems are always fixed quickly and with no cost to me. Thanks!

I bought my bike from this shop a few years ago, and was very satisfied with my purchase. The store manager did promise free service and tune-ups for the bike's lifetime, which I was very surprised about. I took the bike for servicing 2-3 times a year for the first couple years.

I called a month ago about getting a tuneup done, and was told that it's only valid for a year after the bike was purchased. I spoke to the other manager, who informed me that this has always been the policy, and that the person in question understands this rule as well. I'm not very pleased to say the least, because I have always found them to be a reliable and honest shop.

Having free tuneups was one of the main reasons why I purchased my bike with them, and I've always had free servicing done for the past couple years. Granted they never wrote this down for me in writing, but it on a verbal agreement, and they never questioned me in the past. I think it is absolutely ludicrous that they change this policy on existing customers. I have been a repeat customer for many years, but I will not be going back again.

Tech work is well done - enviroment is that of a nice old style bike shop.

Customer Service

The owners are great - try to deal with them. The front line staff are borderline useless. Frustrating doesn't describe the feeling when your conversations are done.
Call backs, customer service in general lacks (comments stem from more than a few instances). The owners however are sincere in their desire to make your experience satisfactory.

I support this store because it's local. The front line employees are driving me away...
