Purchased a bike and new gear from them recently. Spent over $2500 at this shop in a short amount of time. Owners were nice leading up to the purchase but after that they appear to get an attitude if you require service.

They also have no clue how to properly fit a bike and properly fit cycling shoes and gear. Limited factory replacement parts so if an item fails that is under warranty, you have to wait for them to order it..

I will never purchase from this shop again. Rude, unknowledgable, unhelpfull, and limited experience... Do yourself a favor and buy elsewhere.

I went into Finish Line yesterday and looked at bikes for about 15 or 20 minutes without anyone assisting me. I looked around in disbelief as the guy working there asked every other customer if they needed help and kept assisting customers who came in after me. It's a shame because I'm serious about buying a bike and they have a nice line of road bikes.

I went to another local bike shop nearby, and was assisted right away even though they were short handed. I'm ordering my bike from that shop.

As a Pro. Mnt Biker, Cat 3 RRacer, and father I have had a chance to be involved with and experience all the shops in Bakersfield, and many many many others across the Nation and World. Finish Line Bikes is a Great Shop on many levels, customer service, product knowledge, mechanical service, and rider support. At Finish Line, what you wont get is, a group of "yes" people, however you will get Friendly Honest service, with no filler and not to much fluff. Just Honest answers to their customers questions, and needs. This is the 2nd oldest Bike Shop in town, Family Owned, and conveniently located across from CSUB. If you are shopping price ONLY and do not value Service then, maybe FnishLine Bikes is not for you. But it has been my HARD EARNED experience that Good Honest Service is PRICELESS, and worth the "extra" dollars spent. A quality product is a lasting product, and a lasting product is a product that GETS USED, and in the Cycling Buis. that means "the customer" keeps riding. For me "that's the Key" getting people riding there bikes, it creates "good health" and a good healthy person, and isn't that what the world needs?!

Finish Line Bikes... Ha I'm finished with them. They totaly suck. I bought a bike from them was was half assed assembled and had to take the bike back three time. Each time I took the bike back it took two days to fix. Realy? Two days to tighten a rear hub. Two days to align the disk brakes and handle bars. Oh yeah I forgot to mention that the service was horrible. Each time I went to pick up my bike they acted like they were doing me a favor taking so long and fixing what they f-ed up in the first place. The owner "Allen" is cocky and acts like he doesn't need your business. I guess thats why he doesn't get mine. The bike selection is nothing amazing. They carry the same thing as ACTION SPORTS just different brands. I drive to Northridge to bicyle den to get my bike worked on now since they stock the same brands. Bottom line DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, MONEY, or ENERGY dealing with Finish line.

This was beyond the worst customer service I have ever encountered. The owner/manager of this company has zero comprehension of how to run a business. Please continue to read to gain a true understanding of how appallingly rude this person is. I went to Finish Line, purchased a bike on Monday, and was told I would receive a call when it came in on Thursday. Never received a call, so I went down there and was told it would be ready the next day. Next day, I go in, with no phone call received, and was told a part was damaged, but it would be ready Tuesday. Tuesday rolls around, no phone call, and I head over to find a sign that says the store is closed and will not be open until Friday. Being beyond irritated at their complete inconsideration for customer service, I asked my calm boyfriend to call the store for me. When he called, he explained that we wanted to know what was going on with the bike and, very politely, explained that we were becoming frustrated with the way it was being handled. The owner's response was, "Sorry, it'll be ready in an hour," and hung up. My boyfriend called back and said, "Can we just get a refund?" He responded, "Bring yourselves on in," and hung up again! When we went in to get the refund, rather than receive an apology (to at least save his business), he looked at my boyfriend when I handed him my receipt and said, "You don't want to handle this for her?" I said absolutely nothing and was completely flabbergasted that such a tall person could be so small. What saved the day was the owner at Action Sports. He completely took care of us and blew away Finish Line. I love the bike I got from Action Sports!

I look around for specialty bikes. Bikes that have a different look and not everyone has. This place has a variety of bikes and for all price ranges. It does have some specialty bikes, but still not the ones that make me go wow. I would still recommend this store, they are so nice.
