Strength:

Only go here if you want to pay to be disrespected for no apparent reason. And they will probably damage your bike if you don't purchase it from them. My grandmother passed away recently, she saved up money to buy me a bike while she was still alive, I went to get the bike fixed to start riding again as therapy. I walked in with a smile on my face and was kind. The woman immediately said YOUR BIKE IS CHEAP!! Before she said hello she screamed YOUR BIKE IS CHEAP!!!! Without even looking at it. I simply told her “hey I'm just trying to patron your business—I didn't ask you if my bike was cheap. But she kept yelling YOU BIKE IS CHEAP!! She kept ranting about it my entire time there. I stopped responding. She humiliated me in front of everyone and left me in such a bad mood for no reason whatsoever. She quickly and half hazard fixed my bike. She was slamming it around on purpose and probably made it worse. From that point forward I learned how to fix my bike on Youtube. It saved me money, time, and it kept me from having a horrible day! Save your money and use youtube to fix your bike! I have no idea why she said that... I had literally just walked in

Quintessential Neighborhood Bike Shop. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. They always manage to fit me in when I've got an emergency. And they like beer!
