Proper Shifting Helps Your Bike Last Longer, Work Better - With so many gears on a multi-speed bike, it's tempting to use them all. Yet, a derailleur-equipped bicycle actually has a few gears you're better off not using, based upon how extreme the sideways bend in the chain can become. "Chainline" is the term which refers to the relative straightness of the chain's path as it encircles the front and rear gears. Chainline is at its most problematic angle when using two combinations of gears together: either the largest gears in front and back, or the smallest gears in front and back. Even when your drivetrain (derailleurs, gearsets, and chain) is properly set up and adjusted, using these "extreme" gear combinations creates excessive drivetrain noise and wear, which reduces the useful life of the drivetrain parts. You can still celebrate that your bike has 24 speeds. And if you only use 22 of them, it'll last you longer, too.

Norm and his crew are the best! Always friendly and looking to put you in the right product or bike that fits you the best. Goes well beyond the call of duty and has always been there for my family and their biking needs! Only one I will ever go to!!!! 5/27/15
I went there bc they were the only yelp reviewed shop. I lived 20 min away but made the trek anyway. The shop was clean and professional staff was friendly. But, wow, expensive. Or I. Not use to bike repair prices. $160 for a tune up and pads. Yep. But the owner is genuine and held the door for me and was appreciative. So that's why I recommend him. The shop in nsb I interviewed wasn't really in it for the long haul and was closed on a sat. 4/28/2015
First time I have ever been there and it was absolutely a great experience, the staff was very kind and the facility was very neat and well priced. 4/1/2015
On two occasions my wife and I paid to have work done in this shop. The first time, it was to re-do work done poorly by another bike shop. These guys are outstanding in the quality of their work and posses the rare quality of maintaining integrity while trying to make a living. They stand behind their work and will tweek things when needed without charging extra for it. 11/2014
We rented a couple of Trek bikes from this store to ride the Ormond Loop Trail. The store owner took a lot of time to prepare the bikes for us and fit the bikes and helmets correctly. The price is right for a WHOLE day rental and the bikes were in good condition and comfortable. We even met a local biker there who filled us in on where to go on in our travels. Definitely recommend this place. 11/17/2014
We have two old bikes that Norm refurbished for us and they are in great shape. Love this place! 5/9/2014
One never has to wonder anymore. Best hometown bicycle store. 11/1/2013
The customer service of this store is excellent. On a recent trip to Daytona Beach I rented a bike from the store. From the point I contacted the store over the phone to inquire about their rental service and actual experience picking the bicycle up, I was extremely impressed by the customer service. They were very helpful suggesting where to ride. I definitely will be renting here when ever I am in the area without my bicycle. 10/5/2013
