My experiences with this shop have been good. They dont stock a lot of parts and seem to mainly deal with repairs, which made me trust them with my bike, but also made the interaction when I came in a little more awkward as the mechanics had to drop what they were doing to help myself and other customers. They did a great job building wheels for me and the turn around was fairly quick. Their prices are fair and mechanics seem very knowledgeable.

Pros: knowledgeable staff

Cons: very busy

With a humble storefront and very little showroom, Veloshop isn't much of a spot to window shop. Their stock is minimal, but they're eager to place custom orders for parts and they seem to call promptly when orders come in. They seem very labor oriented, just walking into the shop I saw them working on three or four different bikes in stands. Though they specialize in cyclocross, they appeared knowledgeable about mountain bikes, road bikes, and commuter bikes as well. Their prices were about the same as other shops I've been to and service was prompt. I would go back again for bike repair or a tune up when needed.

This downtown bike shop IS intimidating, and worse than that it is downright unwelcoming to anyone who doesn't look and smell like a racer or messenger. The vibe is definitely an "insider" thing, and I shouldn't have to pave my own way with cookie or beer just to feel more welcome. Bikes with upright handlebars and fenders (and their older, heavier riders) can get better, friendlier service elsewhere in town.

I've only been to this place once, so maybe they were having a bad day, but I found the owner of the place to be snobby and unhelpful--I asked for recommendations of other bike shops that had a wider selection of tools, and he dismissively told me that he doesn't go to other bike shops. Bicycle elitism is only hurting the popularity of bikes, people!!!

I am not an avid cyclist and I do not speak the lingo but I can say that this shop is friendly, experienced and reasonably priced. No attitude just good service.

The people who work at this trendy little store next to Jackpot Records can come off as snobby and intimidating. Some people bake them cookies just to take the edge off of going in. But don't stay away - they are all beasts on their bikes and really know their stuff. If you are interested in upgrading, customization, or generally knowing more about your bike, this is a terrific place to go.
