Our inventory has been hand-picked based on what we believe to be the best you can buy. We specialize in high- quality electric bikes. We carry the most respected and iconic California brands, such as Specialized, Vintage Electric and Super73. We also travel the world to discover and bring you some of the best quality, most innovative 'speciality' bikes in the industry, such as Butchers & Bicycles & TrioBike three-wheel cargo bikes, our hand-crafted made to order European bicycle sidecars and our Leg&Go 8-in-1 conversion kids bike. 

Everything we sell is superior in quality, design, functionality, craftsmanship and innovation. So whether you are looking for a performance bike for road or trail, a commuter or active/leisure bike, a vintage-inspired or retro-style throttle bike, a folding bike, a cargo bike, a kids bike, or even a super special bicycle sidecar, we have the best in class to meet your needs.

Our team is passionate about everything to do with cycling, as well as the communities we cycle in, and we pride ourselves on bringing the newest, most exciting bikes and accessories to market.

Our locations


Our Flagship store and headquarters opened in March of 2018 and now spans two floors on the SW Corner of Ocean Ave and Mission St in the heart of this charming little coastal village. We are Carmel-by-the-Sea's first and only bike shop. Just a few short blocks to the most beautiful coastline in all of California and the closest shop to famed 17 Mile Drive in Pebble Beach. 

Mill Valley (Marin/SF Bay)

Our second shop opened in 2019 at the charming Mill Valley Lumber Yard in the heart of Marin County just over the Golden Gate Bridge and north of San Francisco. Situated at the base on Mount Tam, considered by many to be the birthplace of modern-day mountain biking, this shop is surrounded by breathtaking cycling trails, both on and off-road. 


Our Third shop opened in January of 2021 on the ground floor of the Forbes 4-Star Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa. Situated on the beautiful shoreline of the Monterey Bay directly on the Monterey Bay Recreation Trail, which is an 18 mile long walking and biking trail that hugs the Monterey Coastline. We are also just a few blocks from the world-famous Monterey Bay Aquarium and Marine Sanctuary.

Montecito (Santa Barbara)

Considered by many to be the crown jewel of the American Riviera, Montecito is a small coastal community located in South Eastern Santa Barbara. Our fourth shop opened in February of 2021 on Coast Village Road.
