“The small shop on East William Street, with bikes locked out front and tires hanging from the ceiling, is a real neighborhood gem. Trends have come and gone over the years, but Bicycle Express owners Karen and Chuck Clifford have managed to ride them all”-Sal Pizarro, Mercury News
Very careful about covid safety. Extremely helpful explaining options and why certain things are important. Nice people. They don't fix things that don't need fixing. Love this place! This was my neighborhood bike shop and now that I've moved, I still come here even though there are closer bike shops.
Went here a few time already and I like it a lot. The price is much better than other bike repair shops. I came here to buy parts for my BMX which I had to build for my daughter. I had to buy ball bearings, freewheel cogs, and other small items. The staff was polite and nice. This is my place to go. The shop is not that big but they have most of the items that you will need. Their new bike selection is not that great. Overall I would recommend this shop to those who want to DIY or rebuild your bike.
I needed a few miscellaneous parts to install on my bike, and they had everything I needed in stock. The shop is small, but mighty as they're very well equipped and take the time to efficiently help every customer. They also offer repair services, but be sure to book them in advance as they schedule pretty far out. Karen is very knowledgeable, friendly, and provided excellent service; don't let her name fool you! (Sorry Karen). Check them out!
Shop is cozy. Great customer service, stuff is friendly and knowledgeable. Prices are very reasonable. Repairs are made fast and good. I'll definitely go back here for my bike repairs or to buy another bike.
Great tune-up on my 25+ year-old bike, at a great price. My derailleur was having issues for the last year (I've been doing a LOT more bike riding), and at first, I tried making adjustments myself. 🙁 Bad idea, don't have the rack to properly mount bike to do work. ) Anywho, got the thing so fouled up I decided to just go for a complete tune-up. The derailleur issue was actually caused by a mismatch of components installed during another tune-up by another shop over 10 or 12 years ago. Long story short, Chuck installed new drive cage (front derailleur, rear gears, new chain) and did the other bits of the tune-up for a GREAT price. I could not have bought the necessary tools, repair stand, and parts -- nor could I have done such a masterful job -- at even 3x the cost. The bike is simply wonderful to ride now!
They didn't have a bike that quite fit my needs/budget, but the staff was incredibly kind and helpful. I felt that they sincerely tried to find something that worked for me, and they didn't pressure me just make a sale. Their prices were quite reasonable compared to other local shops I explored.
