My bike is steel and about 7 years old at this point. When I took it in for a tune up, they were very friendly and helpful and didn't seem to treat me any worse because I didn't have carbon or a racing history. Now maybe if I'd had either of those I would have gotten wine and cheese in the green room, but I don't think so. They were also very generous in offering a discount for services and parts that I needed because of a charity event I was participating in. And they were NOT sponsors of the event. I thought that was very cool of them! There does seem to be some inconsistency in service pricing... different over the phone than in person. But I don't feel like I ever overpaid and the work was quality. When I am ready to upgrade or want to tweak anything on my old girl, I'll definitely be going back to Wheelworks! --["Users/BorgilVino"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2012-02-23 15:25:43FiddyFetzerComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 224: </td> <td> Line 224: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2012-02-23 14:25:43'' [[nbsp]] "The shop still caters to the high end, but you'll be treated with respect whether your bicycle is a heavy steel junker or a carbon fiber racer." - Description above. ya right.

As far as bike sales go, they definitely cater to higher-end road &amp; triathlon bikes, but do an outstanding job with it. Their fitting service is great, and they're really flexible with letting you test-ride bikes. When I was shopping for a new road bike, they let me try out several different models over a couple visits, each time seeing me out the door with a "Enjoy your ride; take as long as you need." Which is really what you need to be able to do to get a good feel for an expensive bike, but not all shops in town are so accommodating.<br> + <br> + Also, I haven't seen them be at all judgmental with regard to the bikes that are brought in for repairs/tuning.

I walked in the store with basically no knowledge of road bikes other than what my sister had told me but I ended up spending a good few hours. They let me ride as much as I want and kept the buying pressure off. However, I suggest you go in there with more knowledge than I did because even though the service was good, Tim really talks your ears off. He's a good salesman, I have to admit but the bike he sold me was quality and reasonably priced. He tries to sell you a lot of accessories and I guess if you are a hardcore biker you will be interested but it seems kind of pushy towards the end. However that could have been the result of a good few hours in that bike shop. All in all, if you want a decent high end bike this place seems like a good one to go to but don't walk in here with expectations of anything lower end than Felt or Scott. All their brands are very good to excellent and you can't blame them for running a high end operation. Walking in for the first time felt intimidating for sure but the service made me feel a lot more at home (at least from Tim). The vibe I got from the other employees was iffy but I didn't really have time to talk to them so I don't really have anything to say to that. All-in-all a good experience and I hope to buy from them again when I upgrade but I think they definitely favor the person who has more knowledge. Their expertise may make it seem as if they are talking down and I felt that because I didn't say how much I knew so it felt like I was being baby-talked to for a little while. If you spruce up on your bike jargon and componentry knowledge you may well have a good time in there.<br> + <br> + Also I really gave the bikes I test rode a beating, at least as much of one as you can give in 20-30 minutes but they didn't bat an eye when I walked back in. All they care about is seeing what bike is best for you. --["Users/JonahZhieh"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2010-12-21 16:06:52PeteB+ email <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 9: </td> <td> Line 9: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ||(530)753-3118||</span> </td> <td> <span>+ ||(530) 753-3118||<br> + ||&lt;bgcolor='#E0E0FF'&gt;'''Email'''||<br> + ||[[MailTo(info AT daviswheelworks DOT com)]]||</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2010-12-03 09:36:19TedSommerComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 212: </td> <td> Line 212: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2010-12-03 08:36:19'' [[nbsp]] On the whole, Davis bike shops are consistently good. I went to Wheelworks because of their expertise in fitting shoes. If you spend as much time as I do riding, well- fitting shoes are a must. I made the mistake of long distance riding for a couple months with discount internet shoes and ended up with Achilles tendonitis, keeping me off of the bike for months. Wheelworks were incredibly skilled at fitting shoes to fix my problem. Tim was super knowledgeable, spending a full hour fitting my shoes. Sure, the shoes are expensive, but you get what you pay for....and more. BTW, I went to Wheelworks for shoes at the recommendation of a couple of other hardcore biker friends, who had equally superior service.<br> + <br> + --["Users/TedSommer"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2010-03-30 09:42:42EdWinsthreading reply moved in from talk page. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 199: </td> <td> Line 199: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ So you get mad at salespeople for doing their job, I guess it bothers me when they dont.

After reading some of the posts on this board, I was really intimidated. When I was in the market to buy a new seat, I stopped by to see what they had. Upon walking in, I was greeted by a couple of the store employees. All were really friendly. I told them what I was looking for and they suggested I bring in my bike to try out a couple of seats on the trainer. After jamming home and coming back with my bike, Cody helped me out with a couple of different seats to try. I ended up spending a little more than anticipated, but was completely happy with the level of customer service I received. Cody was a cool kid that was totally helpful and knowledgeable.

I love their bikes and enjoy interacting with most of their staffs. Joe, the owner is great and very passionate about cycling. 2 of the employees can be really odd and difficult to engage. Their bike building charge of 300 dollars is too much compared to the same job done at a much lower cost at Freewheeler. These guys at Wheelworks definitely know their mechanical stuff. If you are serious about racing and performance-oriented cycling or triathlon. This is the shop for you. Personally I like this shop and also Freewheeler. Forget about B&amp;L, they wrongly routed my brake cables on my Orbea at the cost of 200 dollars. And I needed to take care of that problem myself when I got home. I have been to Ken's one time to build up my Cannondale and they did not screw my BB tight enough. Basically my campy BB slowly came out. No I did not crash but the front shifting went south...Again, if you want to shop at Wheelworks, you probably know how much money you are going to spend for the bike or bikes. I have 4 high-end bikes for racing and you can call me the addict. Man, it is my only outlet.

There's really no other shop in the area I'd consider buying a bike from - Joe (the owner) knows his stuff and simply loves bikes. He takes the time to make sure the bike is fit properly and works for you, and gives you the opportunity to try out as many bikes as you'd like for extensive test rides - when I bought my time trial bike there a few years ago he spent a total of about five hours fitting the various bikes I tested. If you're serious about cycling and you live in Davis, you probably don't need convincing that Wheelworks is the shop for you... but if you're thinking about buying a nice bike and haven't shopped at Wheelworks before, you owe it to yourself to check it out - you won't be sorry. --["Users/scottfischbein"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2009-05-28 16:56:30jdubComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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> + ''2009-05-28 16:56:30'' [[nbsp]] I am a returnee to cycling after 25 years away. I was a serious rec, non-racer rider. I am writing this as I don't understand suggesting that the attitude of wheelworks is elitist. I went in the first time while riding around on my Harley. I am 51 years old, 240lbs and 6ft.tall. Not your typical elite cyclist. Don't imagine ever shaving my legs. I was greeted very friendly. Told him that I was considering a new bike, that I was checking into several bikes inc. 3 that they carried. They set me up with a fitting appt. A few days later, I went in for my appt. they spent about 3 hours with me, setting up 2 different bikes and letting me ride them as much as I wanted. The person I dealt with (Jorje`) was never expecting me to buy that day. In fact he even said to try some other bikes (that they didn't carry) to be sure of my choice. I was so impressed with his attitude and helpfulness as well as his knowledge, not to mention that I really liked one of the bikes that I had demo'd that I bought it right then. It was not even close to the higher priced models that they carried. In fact it was the entry level model of one of their lines. It has been 2 months and I am still very happy with my purchase and have recommended Wheelworks to some of my friends. This is not a bogus review I assure you. I live 35 miles from Davis. I had never been to the store before and the reason I went there in the first place was because they carried 3 of the 5 brands that I had done my research on and wanted to try. So it just seemed easier. I have since called them and asked questions and they have always been courteous and helpful. Make no mistake about it. This is a serious bike shop that carries higher quality performance bikes. As you wont find an entry level Ferrari for the same price as an entry level Honda, the same applies to a specialty bicycle shop. And this is a shop of Ferrari's Porsche, Maserati's and a few Corvettes (cannondales). But they treated me as well as any Honda shop, and I know, I work for Honda ;-) --["Users/jdub"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2009-05-14 18:35:30KtotheFComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 176: </td> <td> Line 176: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-05-14 18:35:30'' [[nbsp]] In response to Shambler:<br> + <br> + I've already posted a positive review of wheelworks, but I feel I need to say that several of the so called fraudulent comments have been from people I know personally (yeah, no reason for you to believe me, but hear me out).

I think it's quite reasonable that we all support Davis Wheelworks, because it's the bike shop of choice for the 6 cyclists living at our place. I hope that our other (lazy!) roommates make the effort to voice their positive experiences with the shop as well. This shop is a great asset to the community and a knowledgeable shop for all our cycling needs. When I read negative comments about Wheelworks, I feel strongly enough to start an account on daviswiki to voice my positive opinions of the shop that has been nothing but great to me. In this forum of public opinion, you have voiced your opinion of the shop (multiple times) and in response we will also voice our opinions of the shop that we support (and that supports us). I think the fact that we live together makes no difference as to the validity of our opinions and experiences with Wheelworks.

They are knowledgeable and give truly great customer service to cyclists who are serious about buying a new bike, components, etc. They are willing to take the time to special order you what you need and what will work for you, not just shove what they've got in stock out the door. The mechanics are top notch and willing to work with you to solve any problem your bike might have. They are also a great sponsor of local bike racing in the community, including the Davis Bike Club Junior Race Team (racers younger than 18 years old) and the UC Davis Cal Aggie Cycling Team (collegiate student/athletes). I appreciate all the hard work they put into supporting cycling initiatives in town (everything from the Tour of California to the Bicycle Hall of Fame) and I'm happy to give them all of my business. Definitely THE shop in Davis if you're looking for a place that will really take care of you and your cycling needs. --["Users/PMTG"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2009-02-25 21:26:54IDoNotExistComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 146: </td> <td> Line 146: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-02-25 20:26:54'' [[nbsp]] You are not an employee?

I was at the counter at Davis Wheelworks talking with Kevin when this joker walked in. He nearly knocked several multi thousand dollar bikes over as he made his way to the counter. He was unkempt and lacking in basic social skills, I'm guessing that he is probably a grad student in some asinine field of study. Kevin took the job in, quoting him something like $20 labor and $8 for the tube. Half an hour later this guy comes back to pick it up, he is rung out and then as he is leaving manages to wrap his bungee cord around his rear axle. I watched as it dangled off his rear rack and snagged his spokes. The only thing that stopped permanent damage from being done was the fact that the metal hook at the end of the cord snapped off. He then sheepishly brought it back to the counter and asked them to fix it, which they did. It was his own sloppiness and lack of awareness that caused this incident. To criticize the shop for your own mistake is truly low class, moreover, to complain about cost after it has been quoted to you beforehand is absurd. There are two shops within a block of Wheelworks that are a bit cheaper, but Wheelworks did it on the spot and fixed your self inflicted damage on the spot. Judging by the girth of mwander's waist, its clear that he considered an additional block too far to travel. Additionally, flats happen all the time, blaming them on anyone is sort of silly, because its just part of life. I'm guessing mwander hasn't spent too much time riding his bike, so flats might be relatively unknown to him. In any case, you've got to be a real loser to sit at home and complain instead to coming in and talking to the people who might actually be willing to do something about it.<br> + <br> + This is a great store, you will not be disappointed by shopping here. --["Users/theviper"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2009-02-13 11:33:38mwanderComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 136: </td> <td> Line 136: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2009-02-13 10:33:38'' [[nbsp]] Don't let these idiots any where near your bike. Granted I don't have a $5000 pair of wheels but when I go in to get a tube replaced I don't expect complete incompetence. First they managed to clamp a bungee cord in between the wheel and frame when putting the tire back on the bike. Then the tire went flat within a week. When I had a friend replace it he told me that they had put the tube folded over itself distressing the rubber and causing the leak. That and they are probably the most overpriced repair shop in Davis. --["Users/mwander"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2008-12-18 12:14:15SalBorgesComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 134: </td> <td> Line 134: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-12-18 11:14:15'' [[nbsp]] I received outstanding service from Wheelworks when I went shopping for a road bike. It was with some trepidation that I walked into this store to check out entry-level carbon fiber bikes. My last road bike was a steel-framed bike from 22 years ago! I spent nearly an hour with Joe (later I found out he was the owner of the store), who went over the pros and cons of bikes in my budget. He knows his bikes!. He encouraged me to try them all out, so the following day I spent the whole Sunday afternoon checking them out, with Joe meticulously fitting me up with each bike for a test ride. I had already tried out a Trek Madone at Freewheeler that he said was a great bike and that I should try it out again after I was done with trying out his bikes to get the best comparison. The following day he emailed me a synopsis of all the bikes I had tried (and others I should check out) with his personal take on each of the bikes from feedback from his customers. While all the bikes were orders of magnitude better than my old vintage bike, the decision was difficult, and I ended up going for the Trek bike from Freewheeler who also gave me great service. I'd encourage anyone who is interested in getting a good bike to go and chat with Joe and folks at Wheelworks. It's great to be a biker in this town with local bike stores that give such awesome service. --["Users/SalBorges"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2008-11-17 00:09:53KtotheFComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 132: </td> <td> Line 132: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-11-16 23:09:53'' [[nbsp]] I highly recommend wheelworks to anyone serious about cycling.

I had an odd whirring or clacking noise on my bike so first I took it to B&amp;L down the street, they looked at it and said they had to order a special part and it'd be about 30 bucks. For a second opinion, I took it to Wheelworks and the young guy behind the counter took a look at it and said is just needed a bolt. He got one from the back, fixed it right there and when I asked what parts and labor it would cost, waved me off. He was so nice! Quite a contrast to the other store who was obviously planning on taking advantage of someone who didn't know about fixing bikes. I didn't find them snobby to the non-racer (that's me!) or my old, not-fancy bike. They were extremely gracious and nice and offered the small-town service Davis is known for.

I've been to car dealerships that were more than happy to send me on a test drive with whatever they were selling (even when I said I was just looking and not interested!) I've also had dealerships guess (incorrectly) that I was not interested in buying one of their cars. The one that got my business the last time that I bought one was the one that not only had the lowest price for what I wanted, but that also treated me the best. Likewise, the people who ask me what cars or other items to buy (some of whom buy at the high end of the market, and some of whom buy at the low end) get reviews based in part on what their customer service is like. I can think of one company that picked up at least a dozen new customers based on my recommendations to friends, family, and co-workers. And they tell their friends what to buy. Do I buy something from them every time I go to their store? Nope. Do they always have a product that meets my needs? Nope. But when they do, I buy from them, and I recommend them to other people. Did Wheelworks have what I was looking for on that particular day? Maybe not, but I'm not really sure, because I never got to see what they were offering! And because of that, I can't recommend them to anyone else. --["Users/IDoNotExist"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2008-06-21 13:26:03IDoNotExistComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 81: </td> <td> Line 81: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-06-21 13:26:03'' [[nbsp]] In answer to Ron: As a customer, it's up to me to decide if I want to spend that much money on a bike.

I had a terrible experience with Wheelworks recently. I had a bike fit and needed some adjustments. They were late with the alterations and never called to let me know about the delay, then when I got the bike home I noticed a big scratch. No one at the store mentioned that they had scratched the headstem area (which is where the work was done). I am in the process of trying to resolve this, but 'Joe' is never available to take my call.

The bike needed several adjustments to fit properly, and we brought the bike in a couple of times to swap out the stem and saddle, and we had them make some adjustments to the bike. Every time we went in they were more than accomodating (I expected them to get frustrated with us, but they didn't), and they let her take home two different saddles to try out for several days before she settled on a third. Also, when she bought the bike, they put her through a thorough initial fitting process to make sure that she fit the bike properly. The other shops we visited just had her stand over the potential bike and eyeballed the fit. In terms of finding her the right bike, they were head and shoulders above the other local shops. --["MatthewPearson"]<br> - ------<br> - ''2006-09-27 16:40:31'' [[nbsp]] The last two times I've stopped in the shop has really smelled of solvent (the stuff used to clean nasty dirty chins and the like).

This is what you want in a good bike shop. --["Users/RonPluth"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2008-06-20 23:15:36himom(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<p><strong></strong></p>No differences found!</div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2008-06-20 17:30:57himom(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<p><strong></strong></p>No differences found!</div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2008-06-20 17:28:22himom(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<p><strong></strong></p>No differences found!</div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2008-06-20 17:27:53himom(quick edit) <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 85: </td> <td> Line 85: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>- ''2008-06-06 14:34:42'' [[nbsp]] TOP NOTCH SHOP!

Joe won't sell you what makes him he most profit but rather what will be best for your needs.<br> + <br> + They've fit my TT bike twice in two years, all without charge, and they've kept my road bike functional longer than I thought possible.

Wheelworks was one of the very first places I stopped by when I got to Davis. I was looking to buy a bike, and I wound up getting a nice one - from Freewheeler! Wheelworks made it pretty clear that they did not want my business unless I was going to buy a $2000 bike. I also got a helmet, various locks, lights, and have taken my bike in for service - all at Freewheeler, which is a shop that appreciates my business. Wheelworks might have sold me something (I had bought stuff from them in the 1990s, when they had better customer service) had they not chased me out of the store after only 2 minutes. They might have sold me something in the future too. I bike 3000 miles a year, so getting a good bike is important to me. But I think it's pretty likely that Freewheeler will get my business again next time too. They've earned my business. Wheelworks definitely has not. --["Users/IDoNotExist"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Wheelworkshttp://daviswiki.org/Wheelworks2008-05-21 17:28:09kesterComment added. <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Wheelworks<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 78: </td> <td> Line 78: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> </td> <td> <span>+ ------<br> + ''2008-05-21 17:28:09'' [[nbsp]] They've got beautiful bikes and a helpful attitude, that is unless you talk to that kind of beefy dude with the reddish hair and sort of hairy chin. That guy makes people feel like they are a waste of time. It's like he doesn't want people to spend their money there, which is too bad because since Joe's been running the place things have been going pretty well customer-relations wise. Don't judge the shop on that guy with the hairy chin. Generally the other employees there are helpful, and at the very least they've still got beautiful bikes. --["Users/kester"]</span> </td> </tr> </table> </div>
