I have 7 bikes. I ride every day. I frequent 8, now 9 bike shops in my area. For what it is, BH is a pretty good bike shop. Their bikes are priced better, but their accessories cost a little more. What I noticed is that their accessories are actually better and they have a better selection so you really get what you pay for. Parking is in the rear, which I had trouble leaving, but on my second trip, I noticed a block or more eastward, there's tons of parking. Free too. I run marathons. I bike centuries. A block isn't going to kill me. In fact, for my first tune-up and this coming Monday's second tune-up, I actually rode the bike 32 minutes to get there and it takes me about 35 minutes to drive there. What's really cool about the shop is you get free tune-up's for life when you buy your bike from them. I kinda wish all 7 of my bikes had that kind of customer service to back them up. When you have that many bikes, it's nice to know when your bike starts to make that clicking sound, at least you know it's not going to cost you $70 to find out what the problem is, like at some shops, when you know darned well it won't cost $70 to correct it. It's that little peace of mind and it makes all of the difference in the world sometimes. I'd buy another bike from them - that is if I had the room. You don't have to take my word for it. Check it out for yourself.|
What shops do I frequent?
Performance Redondo Beach
Performance Santa Monica
Summit Ski & Cyclery
I've been to numerous others too, but I go to all of these once or twice or more every year. On par with this shop, I'd say Aviation. Both a little bit higher end, but there's a reason for it.

I would recommend the Beverly Hills Bike Shop to anyone shopping for a bike and/or any cycling accessories. Tito, Eric, and Steve are a pleasure to work with. I recently just purchased my first bike and went to a few shops prior to my last stop at the Beverly Hills Bike Shop. Although I wasnít looking to spend thousands of dollars on a bike, they gave me the customer service I would expect to receive as if I were. Donít let the name of the shop fool you into thinking that you are going to get a lot of attitude, an over priced product, and little to no customer service. Their main concern is that you buy a bike that you absolutely love, while giving you the best advice they can without any pressure to purchase a product from their store. Steve gave me a great price on my bike and Iíve been back to the shop a few times since then to buy more ďtoysĒ for my bike.
I canít say enough good things about this place. For what it is worth, Iíve never written a review about any experience that I have had at either a restaurant or store, until now. Give this shop a try when you are looking for bike. If your experience is anything like the one that I had, you will be writing a review as well!
Great shop! Very fair and flexible in pricing, and service. Not the best mechanic in the world, but good for basic tune ups.
noone a Die-hard Enthusiast,
Good shop. Friendly, professional, and quick service...A bit pricey but good stuff is always priceless.

I dig these boys, don't let the name fool you, the attitude is left at the door. I had a flat on an off day, rolled my Kestrel in the door to be greated by a huge Kestrel flag, and they were all over the frame, giving me pointers and tips on care of the frame, so much so a tune up turned into a sale on a new frame. Love ya boys!

The staff seemed disinterested in helping me order a
part for my Trek MTB. On a follow up call, they seemed
to have no recollection of my order and suggested that
I call back in "another two weeks".
Eric a 30 year old Downhiller, riding a Trek Space Bike,
A bit pricey (understandable given the location) on some items, and floor space isn't huge, but there is a good amount of stock on hand - both bikes and accessories. And the service department is top notch, if sometimes overworked. I like the way an old guy like me is treated by the younger staff.
