This is the worst bike shop in the hollywood area... AVOID THIS SHOP AT ALL COSTS.
I walked in with my bike and mentioned that I was having some difficulty with the brakes. This awful excuse for a human being (hispanic male with a mustache) comes up to the bike, and says, ""oh okay, I see what the problem is... it'll be $50 bucks to fix it."" I ask him, ""Well, what's the problem?"" His response was, ""You know, sometimes in life things don't work."" -- While I thought his words of wisdom were very moving, I asked him to clarify what exactly was wrong with the bike. He kept repeating, ""Oh you know, too hard to explain to you, but it'll be $50 bucks if you want to fix it.""
At that point, I walked out of the store and went to I Martin Imports on Beverly Blvd (less than a mile away). As I walk in, I was greeted with a smile, and they asked me what was up with my bike. I explained the problem, and the guy took the bike (without mentioning a thing about money), and in LESS THAN A MINUTE fixed the problem. He explained in detail what the problem was, and just handed the bike over to me and that was it. Now, that is what I call a quality bike store.
Spokes 'N Stuff tried to charge me $50 dollars for something that I Martin Imports was able to fix in less than a minute... but the problem is beyond that. The service at Spokes 'n Stuff is awful, the bikes are limited, and the people working at the store are some of the worst people I've ever come across.
AVOID THIS STORE.
Pros: On Melrose?
Cons: Everything else.
