Wisely I returned to freewheeler to get my Trek serviced and it's simply night and day. Great customer service, family run business and the bike was like new upon picking it up. No matter how much i saved with the groupon, it's meaningless if the service isn't performed to basic standards. I won't make the mistake again and after picking my bike up, I returned a few hours later and got a bike for my 5 year old that was simply perfect. Customer service is the best in town and the same faces are there whenever you arrive. One of the best in town! --["Users/loneshark"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Freewheelerhttp://daviswiki.org/Freewheeler2014-07-21 21:10:20ConstantiaOomenHave to keep your language inflated too ;-) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Freewheeler<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 194: </td> <td> Line 194: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> Got a big thorn and another small one in my tire today while walking on grass with my bike.

We bought our son's bike here and it was a great experience. I came in multiple times, considered buying a bike for myself, chickened out, and finally got a cheap garage sale bike to practice on until I build up my biking skills again after not biking for decades. They were always patient, helped me fix up my cheap bike without a sneer, and made suggestions about ways to make it more useable and comfortable. I got a free tag-along bike trailer from a friend and again, they were very nice about checking it out and making the combination of bike and trailer work as well as possible. They never make me feel silly for being a returning bicyclist with minimal bike skills. Everyone has been wonderful, but I've worked the most with Sheri and Jeff. --["Users/EvaG"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Freewheelerhttp://daviswiki.org/Freewheeler2012-08-29 15:17:18GummyVitaminOverdoseComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Freewheeler<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 185: </td> <td> Line 185: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2012-08-29 16:17:18'' [[nbsp]] I recently bought a Trek 7.2 FX bike from here.

The sales staff and repair guys were really friendly. I kind of knew what I wanted ahead of time but they still let me test ride a few different bikes when it was almost closing time. I ended up ordering a trek cruiser in a color they didn't have in stock and it was ready within a few days. A couple days later I noticed that the front wheel was put on crooked and was rubbing the fender - I brought it in and they fixed it right away.<br> + <br> + Looking back I wish I had done two things. When I bought my bike I also bought a rack, lights, baskets, and a U-lock. I should have asked for some sort of discount since it looks like some reviewers had success haggling and as a student I could really use the money. The other thing is, I had no idea about the free tune-ups within 90 days, so maybe they should advertise that better. I probably would have brought my bike in to check out the weird, sporadic clicking my bike makes when I pedal... --["Users/MeggoWaffle"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Freewheelerhttp://daviswiki.org/Freewheeler2011-01-27 20:05:00SmritiMehtaComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Freewheeler<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 171: </td> <td> Line 171: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2011-01-27 20:05:00'' [[nbsp]] I was just looking to buy a bike to go to school and back, nothing fancy.

Then I went to Freewheeler and I was helped by Kevin who was really nice and had me try out a couple of model and told me what the difference was. Finally I bought my first bike, a Trek, and I love it! I'm really glad I didn't buy a used bike, it's worth it. They even offer free tune-ups for 90 days.

They also performed work that was completely unnecessary and charged me for work I never requested.

I asked the mechanic why the gears were all mess up, and he said he was having trouble with it and complained that the bike was broken (which it wasn't before I gave it to them). I asked why he would leave it all messed up and not tell me and just send me off with a now broken bike, and they both got really mad and said they couldn't fix it for 10 dollars (which I was quote the day before on being the price). They then blamed the price on a high school employee, even though he checked with the mechanics. The girl working said she never wanted to see my bike again, like the bike did something wrong... I will never go back there again. 1. they messed up my bike 2. they didn't tell me about it and just gave it back 3. they were and are extremely rude when they were in the wrong. 4. then they still didn't fix my bike.

When I took it to another bike shop (the only one I knew at the time) they said I'd have to buy a new SET of rims, the prices of which were $275-$399! I wandered around dejectedly and by luck I found the Freewheeler just a few minutes before it closed. Jeff (if I remember correcttly) inspected the wheel and said that he could just order replacement wheel (not an entire set) and transfer the tire and hub from the current one to the replacement. A week later (would have been even earlier but the wheel was out of stock in California) and only at the cost of about $65 I'm riding around again.<br> + <br> + Great service and great value. I'd definitely recommend the Freewheeler. --["Users/Saengking"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Freewheelerhttp://daviswiki.org/Freewheeler2008-02-09 21:14:13IDoNotExistComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Freewheeler<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 83: </td> <td> Line 83: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-02-09 21:14:13'' [[nbsp]] I bought my bike here.

Everything is true: 1) Great Service, 2) Great selection (for a start-to-medium mountain-biker), 3) No pressure. The bike that I chose (with the help from the owner, Jeff) was right on budget and Jeff even gave me a discount (they had the bike in discount a couple of months ago, so he made it retroactive). I bought a nice Giant brand bike and took it for a spin right away. It was awesome. Jeff placed the bike on a stand and had me try it on for size. He made the adjustments to the handle and seats and before I took it out of the store he made one last round of checks and tuneup. I did not get the pressure to buy more stuff (lights, seat, rack, helmet, etc..). No Sweat, Great Selection, Awesome Service!!

Freewheeler is probably my favorite shop in Davis. Their selection is huge - you can order any bike by the Trek umbrella or Giant (which is more models than you can imagine). Nothing high end? Most people consider $4,000 bikes high end (and they can special order bikes up to $10,000), but I could be wrong. Their bikes are all the same? Last I checked, Trek's Carbon Madone had very little in common with Phat cruisers, but I could be wrong again. Buy the stuff on amazon? None of their bikes are sold online - Anywhere! It's part of the dealer contract - Trek and Giant only sell through Brick and Morter Retailers. I guess I don't know what it means for a bike to have "character".

They have a really poor selection for everything, their bikes are totally standard out of the box and are not very high end... They don't have anything exotic, you can't even walk into their shop and see anything really cool, just normal new expensive mountain and road bikes. The girl at the counter was nice and helpful, but didn't know what she was talking about at all, and told my friend at least 4 things that were blatantly WRONG, then rudely told me that I was incorrect. Their bikes have no character, they are almost all the same. Lack of character extends to the staff as well. "bicycle culture" is nowhere to be found at Freewheeler. You can order the same road and mountain bikes and parts that this place has directly off of Amazon.com, probably for a lot cheaper. It feels like they only want you to ride their way. LAME. Won't go there ever again. --["GarrettGallegos"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Freewheelerhttp://daviswiki.org/Freewheeler2006-10-16 02:08:50MattLowfix comment <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Freewheeler<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 19: </td> <td> Line 19: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> If you return someth<span>ere</span> then you can only get store credit back. </td> <td> <span>+</span> If you<span>&nbsp;decide to</span> return someth<span>ing</span> then you can only get store credit back. </td> </tr> </table> </div> Freewheelerhttp://daviswiki.org/Freewheeler2006-10-16 02:08:14MattLowstore credit only <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Freewheeler<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 18: </td> <td> Line 18: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ <br> + If you return somethere then you can only get store credit back.</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Freewheelerhttp://daviswiki.org/Freewheeler2006-08-16 07:42:38JabberWokky-See also, +link <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Freewheeler<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 15: </td> <td> Line 15: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> '''Freewheeler''' sells bicycles and cycling equipment and performs repair work.
