LOOKING FOR A GOOD DEAL ON A BIKE AND A STORE TO “BACK IT UP?”

Hey San Diego area “friends…” When I first walked into the CALIFORNIA BICYCLE store on La Jolla Blvd. I was greeted with a handshake and smile and honesty. Not being a “bicycle connoisseur” I was at Manager Kevin Millard’s mercy. Susan and I had bought a couple of “cruisers,” elsewhere, about 6 months ago, but was never really told they would be tough when it came to climbing hills and managine steep street inclines. Having had two total knee replacements, I still am re-building my strength and found the one-speed cruiser a little tough. I wanted more, and so did she. We told Kevin and his sales guys we didn’t want to get in over our heads–they accommodated. When we brought our cruisers we were “worked” pretty good by the sales guys. We hadn’t owned bikes since we were kids..What did we know? NADA! We needed honesty–something hard to find in not just bicycle stores. We were fitted with two seven speed bikes. PERFECT for us and what we wanted and what we could handle. I’m not one to endorse anything unless I am paid to do it, but if you are looking—give CALIFORNIA BICYCLE a look and a chance. IF you are a big time bike “addict,” they can meet most of your needs, as well. I was given a tour of the store after I asked “..Just how expensive can bikes get?” I was shown price tags from 2 thousand to the 11,000-plus hand made Italian carbon fiber beauty…So, give’em a look, whether buying for the first time or upgrading your “stable.” You can find “CALIFORNIA BICYCLE” at 7462 La Jolla Blvd…right where Pearl turns left at the Chevron station…can’t miss it…if you get there—tell’em LUCK sent ya! Maybe they’ll throw in some free air! lol…
