  • Summit Bicycles
    Whether meant to scale mountains or drift down street shoulders, the bikes and cycling gear at Summit Bicycles ease any odyssey atop two wheels. The extensive selection ranges from Trek bikes for road and mountain to hybrid and commuter bikes that trump getting to work by hiding overnight in a coworker's trunk. Well aware of the importance of finding the ideal frame, the store lends out high-end bikes for test runs via its demo program, allowing riders to get a feel for the saddle's political bent before taking it home to meet their parents. For current owners, Summit's technicians repair and tune up already-owned bikes and help browsers find accessories.

  • Cyclepath
    When crafting custom-fit bicycles, the staff members at CyclePath focus on empty space. To select the perfect frame, wheels, and components for each customer, they observe how his or her body moves through the air in free motion, rather than relying on a database of average body types. The result is a cycle that is uniquely suited to the customer's body and movements. In addition to building custom cycles, they rent out high-end road and mountain bikes and sell pre-made bicycles, allowing patrons to immediately explore the Bay Area's scenic side streets. They keep cycles running smoothly with comprehensive tune-ups and help out bikers who have accidentally pedaled into a realistic-looking mural with a list of repairs.

  • Helm of Sun Valley
    Over the course of 50 years, the family that runs Helm of Sun Valley has amassed an inventory of top-shelf gear for wintry recreation and summertime watersports. Before stocking their shelves, the shop's athletic staffers take skis from Alpina, kiteboards from Cabrinha, and water skis from Connelly for test spins to appraise their performance. Standout sports gear snags a spot inside the store, along with apparel and accessories. Employees also rent out and tune up equipment. They specialize in fitting snowboard boots to feet, sometimes fashioning custom ZipFit liners by molding foam around arches. New kiteboard owners can master the sport by attending lessons, during which instructors teach basics on land before waving pupils onward into frothy crests.

  • Fresh Air Bicycles
    Right in the thick of San Francisco’s Pacific Heights sits Fresh Air Bicycles. Despite the hilly neighborhood’s somewhat unfriendly roads, and the traffic-clogged Divisadero Street that serves as a main artery for all points elsewhere, this sunny shop is dead set on providing outstanding bikes for anyone interested in a little pedal power. The storefront is run by a couple of lifelong racers with an affinity for rehabbing old rides and teaching others the skills to take up tuning their own ride to perfection. The knowledgeable team can be a bit intimidating at first, but once you’ve gotten some of the lingo down, it’s obvious the kids hanging around at Fresh Air are only talking about bikes, because they love the ride so much. With a la cart repair prices and plenty of gear to get you started, you might find yourself leaving Fresh Air with a rebuilt ride yourself.
