The certified professional mechanics of B & J Bicycles, in business since 1985, put cyclists on the road, trail, or mountain atop bikes from names such as Scott and Trek. Staffers assemble, tune, and test each steed onsite, and can custom-fit components for rider comfort. To keep up on cycling trends and tech, crew members train with factory service technicians several times per year, ensuring up-to-date knowledge guides all maintenance services and ride-smoothing tune-ups. The shop also stocks a selection of gear and accessories, preventing riders from having to craft protective gear out of bubble wrap.
