I'll be in the Tucson / Green Valley area the first week in May. Could someone please provide me with the names of a few high quality bike shops?

Thank you in advance.

Supposedly a good one

Is Full Cycle 3302 East Speedway phone 327-3232.

I was just there and talked to a guy there and he said this was the best one.

I don't live in Tucson anymore, but I know that both Performance and Supergo have retail ocations in Tucson - you can get the specifics at their websites. Not sure about the "mom and pop" stores anymore - the Supergo location used to be Full Cycle, a good local shop.

Fair Wheels Bikes now is the best shop in Tucson. The have their own team, and sponsor the University of Arizona cycling team. The owner, Ralph, is a 50-60-yr-old who could ride away from most anyone on the board.
Full Cycle used to be a good shop, but the original owner, Chuck, sold it to Bill, strictly a business man. He was a non-riding, fatt-azz owner who sold out to Supergo. The store used to have really nice stuff, now it's filled with Supergo brand parts and a staff who are better suited to working in a Gap. When I worked there in 2001, they had about a dozen mechanics. Only one of them, Sam Black, knew how to build a wheel. I doubt the owner of Fair Wheels would even hire a mechanic who didn't know how to build a wheel. Another good shop is Arizona Bicycle Experts. They focus on mountain bikes, but they know their stuff. Ordinary Bikes is a tiny shop that looks like it would just sell commuter bikes, but they have very knowlegable mechanics.

good info...

this is helpful to me as well. I just bought a house in Green Valley so I could get out of the cold during the winter and ride and play golf whenever I want. I'll be in Denver most of the time and use GV just when the weather turns nasty. I've been trying to find a good shop in Tucson so this is perfect. Thanks.
