If you have an issue with any Landis store. I would suggest speaking with Bob. I'm sure he would like to hear what the issue may be just like any owner would.

    The only one worth visiting IMO is the 2005 version of the north tempe location. Other than that the shop is full of a bunch of hammers, wrenches, pliers, in other words...Tools.

    Landis tried talking me out of 2Bliss tires and into Saguro TNT's fir my Bontrager Rhythm Elites, I told him that I was pretty sure those tires won't mount with the Bontrager plastic TLR rim strip and he told me they do it all the time. Well they must have a secret way of doing it because everybody says it can't be done without crazy force to get them on. I think the guy was only interested in selling me what he had on the wall instead if ordering what I wanted. The Pig just picked up Specialized though so I can get some Purgatories there.

    Randy, I love my Saguaro's (UST)s over my 2Bliss for what it's worth. I run them on my DT Swiss 450's and have no issues.

    I was not able to get the 2Bliss to set up with Stans and was running tubes and honestly pinch flatting on almost every ride. I went with the LBS I got my Stumpy at, got the Saguaro's set up tubless and have not had an issue.

    It IS a pain getting that UST bead off & on the tire when adding Stans, but that is the only complaint.

    I hear ya on getting the hard sell on something you were not looking for.....

    Saguaro TNT's are hard to get on just about any rim from what I understand. It was tough getting on the Flow rim with strip. TNT is working good but as soon as DNA gets in a Captain with GRID. I'll replace the TNT Saguaro as I don't think I would have much luck doing a trail repair with it.

    I just mounted the 2.4 Purgatory 29'er on the front of my bike. It sure has some volume to it. Worked great tubeless on the Flow rim. Still finding the right PSI for me though. Seems to wonder a little but I don't have enough rides on it to like/dislike it yet.

    I have not found a shop yet that does not want to first try and sell you what they have on the shelf. Jeff at the Phx Landis has ordered lots of stuff for me in the past. Even sent stuff back at no charge when it did not work out. So again without sounding like a sales rep. The Phx store has treated me well.

    What can I say, I agree with Shiggy and Guitar Ted that the Bontrager TLR system is awesome. While I have no first hand experience with Stan's I have a lot of nearby experience and let's just say I am not giving up my Bontragers any time soon. In fact I picked up a set of Bontrager SS TLR wheels for the new SS on order.

    Different Opinion

    I've had good service and a positive experience with the group at Warner and Rural in Tempe.

    I have had GREAT experience at Landis on 7th Ave and Indian School. Everyone there has been very friendly and helpful. I had a cable switched out and bought a new tire recently. No pressure and great service!

    Jeez, take it easy man!
    Tempe bike has been owned by the same people for over more than 30 years. People age and I imagine it will happen to you too. They sell mostly beginner level stuff and campus bikes and do a good job doing it. If you were looking for more that that you should have done a bit of research.

    I too like this location and since it's right around the corner I go there for most of my basic needs. If it's dh/fr related though, you'll find me at cactus...

    If you have a problem with service or parts, try and talk to the manager. I don't know which location you had the problem with, but we'd be happy to resolve any problems over at the Phoenix store, 7th ave. & Indian School.

    I put a lot of miles on a tire I got from you. While it worked fine. I think it should have lasted longer. Will you replace it for free and provide a bottle of Stans for my time?
