A bicycle shop on San Francisco’s biggest commuting route that opens at 8am, you say?  What a concept!  But there’s more…

It’s hard to see how a bicycle shop at the busiest cycling intersection in San Francisco could still feel like a neighborhood bike shop, but that’s what Matt and John down at Market Street Cycles have managed to do. In part it’s because one or both of them is always there, so they have a very real interest in making sure your cycling needs are being taken care of in a friendly, professional and thorough manner  But it’s also because these guys are well aware of how it feels to go into a bike shop and feel talked down to, dismissed, or even ignored because the people working there don’t think you fit in with their idea of cycling culture, aren’t “hard-core” enough to warrant their full attention, or just plain don’t care about their work enough to give you proper customer service. 

There is no bike shop ‘tude at Market Street Cycles, just honest advice, expert repair, great bikes, and friendly service. Whether you need a quick flat fix, some fenders and lights for the winter weather or a complete overhaul, John and Matt are San Francisco’s go-to bike guys. They are there when and where you need them, at the heart of The City.

If you’re looking for a bike to give as a gift this holiday season, Market Street Cycles is the perfect place to go. They carry the ever-popular and affordable Surly brand. And now that the 2013 Jamis bikes have arrived, all 2012 models are 10% OFF while supplies last.
