    Best bike shop in Hood River...

    DISCOVER CYCLES!!!

    Kudos to Miles for getting my bike (brakes) dialed in today in such a timely manner at the last minute (total desperation). Whereas, other bike shop in town didn't even come close to getting it workable again with a few hours wasted and charged to boot. Never again, going straight to Discover every time when in the area as should anyone else in town. Unless you got the day and money to kill with no bike to ride after it all.

    Thanks again Miles and Disco, you guys rule as I was able to get on the trails and get a good ride in before dark tonight before starting another crappy work week.

    Miles is great and he really does hustle to get things done right.

    We are pretty fortunate to have choices in this town, for sure.

    Heck yes, I love those folks. Have bought my past two mt bikes from them (even went back there to buy one after moving to PDX.) They've pretty much spoiled me for shopping anywhere else.

    I'd be down with joining you this Saturday morning Don. Post or Syncline or whatever you have in mind. Let me know.

    Hey Don, I'm going on an organized adventure ride (not off-road) as an invitee so sorry, not this time. But I'll look you up for sure next time I'm in your neck of the woods.

    More woodsy where I live, with a lot of moss & algae. No worries.

    Discover is great -- best service I have ever exerienced in a bike shop. Kurt is always super helpful. I've bought 3 bikes there in the past year. Love that place.

    They may be my favorite bike shop. The only shop I was as impressed by was Bike and Bean in Sedona. Cycle Path in Portland is great also.

    Word up Jay, those are my favorite go-to shops as well. I've been waking up every day this week and walking over to B&B in Sedona every morning to get some good java, trail info and on the spot help with bike as needed. Great shop!
    Ride On!

    It is a good thing to be in Sedona and riding in the red rocks. Awesome place! Next place I want to check out is Flagstaff, Prescott, and Fruita. North Carolina has me intrigued also...

    Bike and Bean guys are top notch.
