Your Neighborhood Bicycle Shop

we are a full sales and service bicycle shop

MJ’s Cyclery opened in 2014 with the goal of getting more people on bikes and out of their cars. Whether that means changing up your commute, heading to the store for some groceries, or going out with friends we are here to help. With so many great things to do and see in the area, being comfortable getting on a bike and heading out is a fantastic way to enhance your experience.

We are a stocking dealer for the Marin Bikes brand. Marin bicycles date back to 1986 when the mountain bike revolution was in full swing. As many brands do they added other segments to their lineup over the years. Today’s Marin offerings include mountain, gravel, road, cyclocross, commute, neighborhood, and kids’ bikes. Our focus at MJ’s Cyclery is commuting and neighborhood bikes but we are comfortable with all styles. Most of the staff at the shop are avid mountain bikers.

We are also a non stocking dealer for Transition Bicycle Company, Surly Bikes, Soma Bikes, and All City. There are several other brands available to us as well.

We offer a full range service department. Whether it’s fixing a flat, getting your bike a tune up, or doing an overhaul and building a new set of wheels we can do it all. Give us a call or drop by to see how we can help you.

 

Schedule service

We know that many of you would rather not be without your bike for more than a day so we make a few appointment spots available each day.

Testimonials

Great technicians, high quality work, excellent service, really great people in general. They have also charged me below their original estimate in a few previous repairs. I ride both enduro and DH bikes and sometimes don’t have the time to do more involved maintenance (shock/fork servicing, wheel hub rebuilds, brake bleeds, etc). MJ’s is the one and only shop I will go to in my neighborhood for bike service.

The customer service is top notch. I walked in about 30 minutes from closing time on a Friday so I wasn’t expecting much. Scott helped me with two bikes that I borrowed from family and helped get them in shape for me. He also helped about 4 other customers while working on my bikes and it was a pleasure to see how he cares for each customer.

While I’m not an avid bicycle rider, I will be going back here for any bike needs.

I was in the area and seeking some new spinning/cycling shoes and advice on extensor tendonitis that I have been experiencing. I did not know whether it was caused from running, stepping, or cycling. Nevertheless, Google maps pointed me to a very highly (customer rating) rated shop named “MJ’s Cyclery”. Bottom Line: Beyond my expectations were met - I received expert fitting advice and a wonderful story of how these two awesome store owners met and started a wonderful business. I took their advice and tried new shoes and new recommended techniques and after 90 minutes of intense cycling, no pain. Please go out of your way to visit them - this is a high-tech yet old school customer service and genuinely care about the customer business!!!

We were looking for a bike shop to tune up our bikes and most of the ones we walked into seemed like they couldn’t be bothered.

MJ’s was DIFFERENT. The people in this bike shop are FRIENDLY, REAL and UNPRETENTIOUS. It’s a shame more bike shops aren’t like MJ’s because people would be drawn to joy of cycling if bike shops were as friendly and helpful as these guys and gals. THANK YOU for tuning up our bikes, the great service and getting us back in love with our bikes.

Our goal

When we opened we knew we wanted to be the shop anyone would feel comfortable visiting. I think we did that pretty well. We’ve gotten a bit bigger but we are still a relaxed shop that promises excellent and friendly service.

 

See our work

About The Owner

scott armstrong

I first started working on bikes in 1986 when the then owner of The Chain Gang Bike Shop in Redding CA let me start helping out around the shop to work toward a new mountain bike. I don’t have that bike anymore but I do have the love of bikes I learned from the men and women at the shop. Until we opened MJ’s in 2013 I had never had a paying job in the industry. I have been lucky to have top notch mechanics as friends who have helped me hone my skills working on my own bikes and eventually doing small jobs for friends.

In 2012 I received a Professional Repair and Shop Operation certification from the United Bicycle Institute in Portland, OR.

I have been a core staff member of the SoCal League of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association since 2011. In 2015 I received the NICA Clif Bar Volunteer Service Award.

MJ’s Cyclery is a proud member of the Professional Bicycle Mechanics Association.
