    I've driven by it. I looked at the website yesterday: Sure seems to be a good place.

    I dislike most LBS, Rage is a rare exception. Great shop.
    Why would I need more than one gear?

    Rage has stood the test of time. Been around at least two decades. They have to be doing something right!

    10 years, more money than I can remember spent there, always fantastic treatment. Not saying nothing ever went wrong, but always had a good experience. Absolutely try to buy parts etc there because the service and advice is always good and worth the bricks-and-mortar costs. Free-beer fridays, group rides, fun events, custom work, they will open up the QBP catalog and help you pick out what you need.

    Been shopping there since I started riding in '94. Liked it enough to get a part time job before my current position, still head over when I need something I can't get or just to catch up with friends.

    Ok, cool. Thanks guys. I usually do all my own wrenching but there is a few things I hate doing myself (wheel truing/building). So I was looking for somewhere reliable and honest for the work I hate doing.

    Over the years I have had some interesting experiences at some local LBSís and have learned to ask first for references. Also, an online reviewer buying a criuser bike vs an MTB enthusiast on a downhill rig are going to have very different opinions as to what is good work.

    Have spoken with Peter twice regarding availability on Rocky Mountains- he has yet to return a call with any information. Guess I'm the exception to the Rage Love.

    Adventure bikes had a few Rocky Mountains in stock last week when I was there. They just started carrying them.
    The only trace I leave behind is tire marks.

    I've pretty much given up on all shops except for Rage. Great CS and really cool vibe. Peter is always super helpful and friendly and goes the extra mile to make sure you're satisfied with your service. I have numerous bike shops that are closer, one less than a mile away, and I still choose to drive 30 miles to Rage.

    Moved from the PHX metro 3 years ago. Still miss Rage. Bought my Salsa Ti El Mar there. Outstanding service, hard to find a better LBS.

    Always helpful and great service. Quite busy at times so Peter may not have got message or just forgot. He is also on crutches now. We just ordered 2Salsa Powderkeg tandem yesterday. Great deal was made.

    Great shop! But..I wouldn't get my bike fixed/tuned there, the mechanic isn't the brightest of fellows.

    It appears they have multiple techs. Some must be better than others but that's to be said for any LBS.
