It looks to me like any of the reviews that are positive for Bicycles 101 were written by the owner or current employee of the store. They all read like a child writing an advertisement. Be very careful at this store because after the owner has your bike he will charge you whatever he feels like. Most times it is things you don't need at inflated prices. Reality is, no real cyclist in the area or from the east coast that come here to ride Hwy 101 will go in Bicycles 101 because it is well known that they rip people off while they demean them with personal questions that have nothing to do with bikes or guitars. You should not have to tell them if you have a boy friend or not to get service! I know because he bragged to me about it. There was a Radio Shack here in town that treated people like trash, they are out. Bicycles 101 is taking the same path. No one go's there!
I just found this old report and proof is Tim's wife is out the door divorced because she likes women. She hit on me every time I was in there. Wait so did her husband the owner! This store has no friends left that cycle. They have insulted every customer that ever came in the door. Half the time the owner smells like whiskey and his employees are pot heads that cant even fix a flat because they are stoned while the stereo blares in your face. I will be driving 50 miles to get repairs done at a professional bike shop that doesn't fire employees once a month. Proof again. Ask the owner how many employees he has had! I lost count when I stopped going in that scam store 2 years ago. I think his name was Chris. Chris related this story to me. Apparently he told the owner it looked bad when he groped and dry humped his fat girlfriend in front of the store.
When I went back a month later Chris was long gone. Too bad, he seemed like a nice guy. At least he didn't hit on me and sell me a bike that is too big. By the way this store will not accept returns. The owner deliberately sold me a bike that was too big for me and will not let me return it. I was told I chose it, so I can keep it. I know it was deliberate because Chris told me the owner just wanted to get rid of the bike because it had been there 2 years. Hopefully someone will open a new Bike Shop in
