The guy behind the counter was not friendly, but as I approached with caution and asked fr a very specific part for my 15 year old bike, he said give me a minute, went into the bag, pulled out a bin, and found multiple options for me one of which was new in box old stock from the same era as the part i was replacing. You won't find this kind of attention to detail anywhere else in town, as far as I've seen. They specialize in track bikes and track specific parts, but I wouldn't hesitate to come back to look for parts for my road bike.

Pros: goldmine for rare parts, particularly NOS

Cons: guy with the pony tail is a lil snooty

If you love your bike and you love riding, these are the bike mechanics for you. They are honest (sometimes to a fault) and do the best work I have seen. Better by far than most of the local shops. If you're looking for knowledge with a friendly attitude see the woman behind the counter. Her grumpy companion is an excellent mechanic and very knowledgeable but he needs to work on his people skills. Both of them are skilled and leave you with the impression that they gave your bike the same care and attention that they would give their own.

Pros: knowledge, helpfulness, mechanical skill

Cons: occasionally grumpy

I enjoy riding my bike. I usually ride 5-10 miles a day 4 or 5 days a week. I shop at many different places for my gear (it all depends on what part of town I am in at the time) and on of the places i enjoythe most is Bike Central. All the employees are helpful and know what they are talking about. If you are in the area, check them out.
