Ive been away from bikes for years and when I ventured into the shop.I was greeted by Matt who was extremely helpful and listened to me . I had mentioned that I was interested in a basic road hybrid bike and though, he didn't ask. I mentioned my budget was between 450 and 500 dollars. I was shown a wide variety of bikes and he mentioned the special 325.00 2013 Specialized bikes in stock. I loved the look of the bike and bought it the next day. Ive met Les and have to say he's very friendly and helpful as well! Overall for a first experience. Id say all went well.very decent staff and a great shop. Thank you guys!

I have been an employee of Plaine and son for over six yrs. and there is a gentleman by the name of Richard Nathan that has written very poor reviews about this establishment that are very untrue! It states that the owner will cheat you which is very false. He also is degrading the integrity of the service shop. This is coming from a gentleman that has a personal issue with the owner and has nothing to do with the quality of service that we offer at Plaine and son. Using this venue to hurt people and not write direct reviews is very childish and should be ignored.

I have been a employee of Les Plaines for three years and i have never found any of the things Richard Rathan is saying to be true. The poor review written by Richard Nathan is not because of any poor customer experiences but rather because of a personal grievance with Les the owner.

The below review of Plaines simply is not a just nor accurate description of the shop. Having worked at the shop for a number of years I understand how this review can seem biased. Les is obligated by his dealer agreement to honor all manufacturer warranties and has done so on more occasions than almost any store in the area. It is unfair to say that his staff is incapable of handling such a task; I personally have handles a dozen frame warranties and over 2 dozen component warranties successfully this summer alone. The tone and harshness of Mr. N's review seems to indicate a personal issue with Mr.Plaine that should not any bearing on how this shop operates.

Be very careful with this shop. Also, carefully read the reviews. They are mostly populated by the owner Lesley Plaine (Les P.) and previous employees (how have since been fired) Les has trashed this, once respected, shop. He's fired almost every honest and quality person. He badgers his customers and embarrasses his employees public. There is nothing at this shop that cannot be bought somewhere else. He will not honor his service warranties, and has no one capable of performing them. The best time to buy from Plaine and Son is at their going out of business sale!

The owner, staff and selection are all great. It is the best neighborhood multi-sport bike/ski shop in the area. You can find a bike in every price range and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

Ultra friendly staff who always have time to talk and help! In the current era of the uber-snobby bike shops, these guys are very down to earth. They cover the spectrum of biking, skiing, boarding background and are always organizing group rides that exclude NO ONE, regardless of age or ability! Heather, resident pro & wonder-mom, is tireless in her efforts always looking for ways to increase awareness and improve safe access for roadies and back-woodsmen alike. The guys in the back are always willing to spare a part to get you back in the saddle and on down the road... A welcomed asset to the Schenectady community!

Plaine & Son is the only full service bike shop in the area to help with expert advise whether you are interested in a casual bike, mountain or road performance, the employees are cycling enthusiasts that are passionate about product knowledge and ride experience.

I was looking for a bike for a friend when I was shopping here. The sales people took a while to come and help, they seemed too busy talking to each other. I needed to know what size frame to buy and it did not seem like our salesperson knew what he was talking about or take the time and interest with us, as other stores have. Their prices were pretty much the same as other bike stores in the area. On the plus side, they did have a large selection of bike accessories, and there was a lot of space to test bikes out in.
