Amid GM Repair Center of Roseville’s row of bustling garages, ASE-certified mechanics maintain and repair domestic or foreign vehicles of all types, with a well-practiced specialization in GM products. Thorough diagnostics uncover mysteries behind blinking engine lights or flirtatious headlight winks, and a two-year, 24,000 mile warranty backs up all repairs. As vehicles receive vital care in the garage, clients travel to work or home via a complimentary shuttle service, or make friends with the WiFi in the waiting room until their ride is returned to them, often with a complimentary wash.
Don and Rick Wood, owners of Cooks Collision, can trace their auto-repair roots back to the 1930s. Their grandfather, Clyde, built cars for Ford Motor Company and later started his own body shop, where he passed his knowledge on to his son, Bob. After working as a body-shop manager for Saltnes Volkswagen, Bob took out a mortgage against his family home and purchased Cooks Auto Body, fulfilling his dream of starting his own shop—just like his dad. Today, Don and Rick carry on the family legacy with more than 30 locations, dozens of employees, and one magical vintage racecar. Their ASE-certified mechanics are factory-certified by Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Jaguar, and Volvo, and they repair around 30,000 cars each year.
Anything you might need between the front and back wheel can likely be found at Bob's Cycle Center. The shop carries bicycles for all terrains and riding styles, from road bikes to mountain bikes and cruisers from brands such as Trek, Marin, and Electra. They also carry a wide selection of parts—like brakes, handlebars, and chains—as well as tires, tubes, and wheels. And then there are the repair technicians: expert mechanics who can coax maximum performance out of your bike by giving it a tune-up or a heartfelt lecture on the importance of flossing between its spokes.
Bob's Cycle Center carries all of this for bikes, but they have riders covered too. Bike-owners can peruse a selection of outerwear, jerseys, shorts, and bib tights from Bontrager, as well as helmets, gloves, and shoes.
