    New Bike Shop in Conejo Valley!

    Hey everyone, I hope you don't mind a little shameless advertising. I just wanted to get the word out that we are opening a new bike shop in Agoura Hills!

    It's a unique type of shop that is part destination, part retail. We are a full sales and service shop with a full scale espresso/coffee bar. Plenty of seating inside and out. Big screen TV's to watch race footage and live events. And lots more cool stuff to come!

    Follow us on facebook at JRA Bikes & Brew to see what brands we're carrying, demo dates, and when our upcoming Grand Opening date will be. Hope to see you there!

    Thanks, Vince
    Fat fanatic.

    Just don't carry Specialized . . .

    And maybe think about sponsoring the SoCal forum or something . . . people might get a little grumpy about commercial posting.

    Edit: Should have added that I'm excited about the shop. I regularly ride out that way and having some good coffee for the trip home would be great.

    You guys have suspension services planned?

    Thanks! Our mountain bike brands are Jamis, Niner, Turner, and Independent Fabrications. We'll have demo bikes in the shop and will be hosting demo days with the manufacturers.

    Nope. No Specialized. Curious, I'd like to hear why you say that. PM me if you'd rather not say it here.

    Good idea on the forum sponsorship. I'll look into it.

    We in fact do have a suspension service program. Our primary mechanic has years of experience overhauling, upgrading, and fine tuning suspension.

    Congrats, Vince! I heard about this several months ago and have been anxiously awaiting an official announcement. Sounds like a terrific business model. I look forward to the grand opening.

    Very cool, what kind of tuning do you offer?

    He hasn't responded, because the Big S has already hauled his ass into court.

    Can't wait to see the new shop! I may support an LBS yet.

    My main gripe about specialized shops is that they tend to be VERY specialized.

    My LBS carries Spesh, Trek, and now Kona. I ride a bike for how the bike performs, not for political B/S or lack there of. I've owned more Spesh's than any other bike brand and while I am not currently riding one, I will always consider them in my future choices.

    We'll be posting full details once we're up and running. We've been releasing most of the information on our Facebook page since it's easier to manage the flow of info.

    Yes, right behind the iHop. Most people in the area know there was a bike shop there up until last year. We liked the location because of the easy access to so many road and MTB routes. We expanded the space considerably and are almost done with a full remodel. You're welcome to drop by and say hi while we're working on it. Or keep up with the progress on our facebook page: facebook.com/JRABikesAndBrew

    After talking to folks in the industry and hearing about Speshys business practices, and lawsuits, I will never own one of their bikes. Sorry, they don't deserve my money.

    Well I look forward to meeting you, charlesinoc! You'll be happy to know our coffee bar will open at 7am. You can also grab a spare inner tube or some trail food if you're running low. And try this on for size: our service department will open at 7am on Saturdays and Sundays for those unexpected last minute repairs.

    Cool that you guys aren't carrying the same inventory that Mike's and NP bike shop are.

    Totally cool you are going to have Niner.

    Awesomely cool you guys are next to LadyFace. Their food is really good and they carry some great brew there (although I've got to say I'm not a fan of their shop brew- but they have great taste in imports).

    Too bad Tifa's moved. That would have been a great magnet for the wives.

    michaelscott, thanks for noticing the difference in our brand offerings. We truly tried our best to focus on brands that offer great performance and value. And we certainly didn't want to be "just another bike shop". If we start to see a trend with customer requests for a certain brand or product, we'll give it a try and see how it goes. We expect our inventory to grow as our customer base grows.

    I hope the spouses who don't ride also give our cafe a shot. Although we are a bike shop, the layout and decor of the cafe is intended to appeal to a broader audience. Plenty of seating inside and out. A great selection of coffee, tea, smoothies, and baked goods.

    It will be nice to have a bike shop right off the freeway going to and from Backbone. Can't wait to check it out!
