    Best MTB shop in south Reno?

    Iíll be living in the Galena area come early December and have no idea about any shops. I do the vast majority of work on my bike, but having a shop that can do a fork or shock rebuild and can be trusted to have an at least somewhat reasonable selection of good parts on hand is always good. Anyone have a recommendation?

    Fox does their rebuilds in Reno but I think you still need to ship it to them.

    Manticore is where a bunch of my buddies take their suspension.

    Thereís also Madsuspension but Iíve never used them.

    For shops, I go to Black Rock on North Virginia. They seems to be the only guys that actually ride mountain bikes in town. Theyíre the opposite end of Reno from Galena but itís not that far.

    Madd Suspension does good work, he can be hard to get ahold of; one man show.

    In terms of bike shopping and checking out gear, Black Rock in north Reno and The Backcountry in Truckee.

    I heard that a new bike shop was opening in Carson??

    Awesome - thanks for the feedback. Surprising how difficult it is to find a shop where the employees actually mountain bike!

    One of the things Iíll miss about the East Bay is Rhythm bikes in Oakland - itís a mountain bike focused shop run by mountain bikers and with good product. Hit it up if you guys are ever in the east bay.

    Since youíre in Galena, also check out Village Ski Loft in Incline Village and Olympic Bikes in Tahoe City.

    Reno/Carson is not the mountain biking you'd expect it to be, lots of folks off road moto/4 x 4/shoot guns, but mountain biking not so much.

    It's a strange state, just saying ...

    The new shop downtown is all e-bikes.

    Yup, I get it. On that note, the East Bay is a strange locale based on much less desirable behaviors.
