The shop has an impressive amount of bikes and gear that is almost on top of each other I always feel crowded when I walk in there. When it comes to gear, they seem to limited to certain brands/ styles... but so are most LBS.

Customer Service

I do most maintenance work on my bikes on my own so my visits to this store - or any LBS- is when a) i need something (parts) right away or b) I need service done that is beyond my knowledge. That being said; service has been great and they do a good job and promptly. When it comes to parts though, I feel it's a bit overpriced. The other day I need spare tubes and they charged me about $12 dollars a piece. The next day I saw the exact same tubes for $8 a piece at a nearby LBS. Similar situation with a bike computer a while back: they priced it at $35 and the other store had for $ 22 I think.

LOTS OF QUALITY BIKES TO CHOOSE FROM. A LITTLE BIT CROWDED WITH MERCHANDISE. HAS LOTS OF ACCESSORIES FOR THE BIKES AS WELL. GOOD MECHANIC ON DUTY. LOTS OF FOOT TRAFFIC COMING IN THE DOOR.

Customer Service

EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE. DAVE KIM IS A TERRIFIC SALESMAN AND IS VERY GOOD AT ADJUSTING BIKES AS WELL. VERY HONEST AND COURTEOUS. I BOUGHT AN ENTRY LEVEL ROAD BIKE . HAD IT FOR A MONTH AND WAS NOT TOTALLY SATISFIED WITH IT. I WAS ABLE TO TRADE IT IN FOR CREDIT. LOST A LITTLE ON THE DEAL, BUT THE NEW PURCHASE WAS DISCOUNTED, SO I WAS PLEASED. THE NEW ROAD BIKE IS A HIGHER END MODEL. I AM VERY PLEASED WITH IT. TOOK ADVISE FROM DAVE AND HE WAS RIGHT. I HAVE BOUGHT A SET OF PEDALS, AIR PUMP, AND WATER BOTTLE ASSEMBLY SINCE. { SHOP HERE }!!

Good local shop. Been in New Brunswick forever; I think George Washington got a bike there. Lots of bikes, including some older, hard-to-find stuff. For specialty parts, you're probably better off buying online - but of what shop is that not true?

Customer Service

They've always treated me well and been square with me. When they said they would do something, it was done, and if they couldn't get something, they let me know promptly. I've had repairs and service there, and I'm satisfied with the quality, speed, and cost of the work. There's another local shop I avoid because I always feel like the owner is trying to get me to spend way more money than I want to; I never get that feeling in Kim's. Mechanic dudes are cool, too; they point out my ignorance without making me feel stupid.

Parking s-cks. I've got a secret parking spot a few blocks away that I use. But the fact that I sought out a secret parking spot should tell you how much I like this shop: would I have put in the effort if I didn't?

Store with lot of selection

Customer Service

Went to store one year ago and bought miscellaneous stuff at discount. Mrs. Kim was very nice. HOWEVER, went 2 weeks ago with my three boys. Mr. Kim yelled at kids from across store within 2 minutes because they were touching the bikes. After he yelled at my son a second time for a touching a schwinn goblin (my son's first bike, about $50), I asked what the problem was. He told me to take my kids and get out of store. When I informed him that I was pricing a $4500 Ellsworth bike, he said "I have money! I don't need your money! Get out of my store!"

Wonderful bike shop. Maybe my experience will cost Mr. Kim more than the $4500 that I was contemplating spending there.

A very well stocked shop. Road/Mountain/BMX and alot of parts in stock. Been going there for years. No need to go anywhere else. Equal if not better prices than the internet. I'd rather support a local shop anyway.

Customer Service

Mrs. Kim is the bomb! Rest of the staff is very helpful. Mr. Kim will fix anything. Always a pleasure going there. Customer loyalty is greatly rewarded.

The shop in nice and has decent amount of stock on hand. Great place for odds and ends like polish, lube, small parts etc. Service techs were knowledgable and very good. Price seems to be key in this shop. I was looking for a GF Tassajara disc. Mrs. Kim gave me a great price beating everyone else by $100. Trouble is she sold me last years model without telling me. Mechanical disks instead of hydro, platform pedals instead of clipless (which she upgraded for free thx) and a slightly different fork. Bike has been fine and I am happy with teh purchase, just beware what you want may not be what you are going to get.

Customer Service

Fine. Bike has been serviced a few times without too much wati and the work has been top notch.
