“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.
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.
BE via Bicycle Express is a very small local shop on E Williams, Is a pit stop for me every couple months for adjustments and maintenance for my bikes. I pass through Downtown often so its convenient for those that do the same. I like how they have a pump and tool pole for any customers to use, whenever really. A solid spot with quick turn around haven't had wait no more than half an hour (30) on the kinds of small jobs done on my bike. I think the shop is run by a family trio/team of Dad, Mom, Son and mechanics? Jessica!! lol. No diss or anything, but this place does not off give off a yuppie/upscale or trendy feel, but that's whats awesome about it. Definitely has an 80's 90's charm. Overall a place I recommend for anyone looking to buy and or get a bike fixed, great people!!

Found this place after trying to get a heavy duty rear rim. One place was to expensive and couldn't find the rim I needed. The other place only does flat tire repair. I found this place doing a Google search. I came in, I ask what I needed. They had the rim I needed, and it was hand made. I was in an out in about 1 1/2 hours. I would recommend this place, and I will go back for any repair.
