Small shop but amazing service just a block away from old town Sedona. A short ride to most of the trial heads like Hangover and Munds

Customer Service

Dave's service is what I measure all other shops by. He is amazing at suspension setup too. If you are in the area you owe to yourself to stop in. I don't ship my bike when I go to Sedona because the Ibis rentals with Dave are top notch.

Can't say enough about the shop and Dave. I rented a bike from him 4 years ago and still chat him up on a regular basis

Best bike shop I've ever been in. If your looking for high performance trail tested mountain bikes and components then this shop is it. Dave is the total package. Awesome rider, meticulous/knowledgeable mechanic, and a superlative trail guide. We had a big group from West Virginia and shipped our bikes to Sedona. We had multiple mechanical problems related to both shipping and riding. Dave went way above what a normal business owner would do for his customers to make sure everyone in the group kept the rubber in the dirt. He loaned us parts, had parts overnight shipped that weren't in stock and gave great deals on rentals while waiting for parts. If Dave worked on your bike he would not let it out the door until he had it completely tuned to your riding style and weight. It was like having a buddy that owned a bike shop in Sedona. We started and ended almost every day at his shop. He would line out our route in the morning and help us fix what we'd broken in the afternoon ??.
Thanks Dave!! We will see ya next winter.

Small shop that can get anything done. Owner Dave has more information about bikes than anyone would need to know and is a great teacher. He also knows the area very well and is happy to give info. This is a great place to check out just if you are in the area. I wouldn't ship my bike if I were to fly in as the Mojo HD rentals are awesome.

Customer Service

Second to none. No one else can tune a bike and tell you all about it like Dave. Have to see to believe.

The perfect mountain town boutique shop for the hard core and weekend rider. A place to meet and get the total download on what Sedona has to offer. No frills just bikes and great service. If you want to pay for large overhead and a bunch of extras this is not your spot. If you want to ride, rent the best bike in town and are serious about fun then you found it--Fat Tire

Customer Service

I am a Ibis HD owner who bought my bike from Dave at the Fat Tire Bike Shop back in April 2011, bike was delivered and built as a 2012 model in June. I waited to write my review so I had some good follow up perspective. Lots of shops and sales people are your best friend while they are grabbing at your wallet but Dave really has shown that genuine outstanding long term relationship based service does exist. He has made sure that from the day I stepped over that new sweet HD frame until today that the bike has been perfect for me and my riding. I don't want to set a precedent but I think we rode together about 5 times as we got the bike dialed for me and my riding style. I don't even need to go into how amazing this 2012 HD is and what it can do to tame some of the most technical and challenging riding in the southwest. So lets stay on the fact that none of that matters if the right guy isn't setting it all up. Dave has stayed with my demanding schedule of riding and improving even the smallest details on the bike over the last 6 months. While it is true that I continue to spend on this awesome sport and hobby Dave has always shown me that his emphasis is on my enjoyment and the bike as a product of his passion for high performance riding. I have also during my time in the shop watched dozens of other riders have their rigs dialed and made to work better no matter the bike brand. Dave truly has the knowledge and patience to make bikes the best they can be even for the most finicky customers.

I was fortunate to be a part of the east coast group described in the post below who used Dave's shop and gear for our incredible trip. Now, Dave may not sell coffee or have a pump track out back, but he does offer the best products, gear, and know how in Sedona.

Customer Service

I think Dave's middle initials are "CS"...no, I think he goes by C.S. Dave. There is no better customer service experience anywhere than what you will find in this shop. Our MOJO's were totally dialed in, and he made sure they remained that way, and that every member of our large group had absolutely everything we needed every day of our 5 day trip there. Dave welcomed us warmly and treated us as if we were long-time friends.

There is no other shop any cylclist visiting Sedona needs to know about. Whether you are a novice or expert, Dave has what you need. He is passionate about bikes, riding, and Sedona. He posesses a wealth of knowledge regarding local, regional and industry topics. His product line transcends that of two wheeled machines and the associated gear - it is Sedona Mountain Biking.

Best shop in town. A group of us from the east coast rented Ibis mojos and HDs from Dave on our annual western mtb trip. Our first time in Sedona and I cannot say how pleased we were with Dave, The Fat Tire Shop and our whole Sedona riding experience. Dave's shop is small but his Ibis rentals are top quality, well maintained and equipped just right for the Sedona terrain. He also carries well picked gear for local riding and is very helpful with trail selection and directions.

Customer Service

Dave is the best. All of our bikes were prepped and fitted to perfection including weighing rider weight and setting the suspension accordingly, swapping out stems and grips etc. Whatever we asked Dave took care of, and all with a smile and an obvious enthusiam for the sport. I have travelled and rented high end bikes a lot and Dave is the best I have seen at taking care of his customers. I'd give him 10 stars if I could.

If you want beautiful and challenging terrain give Sedona a try. Great riding all within a short distance and town has plenty of restaurants and bars for apres biking. Highline, Hangover, Hog area, Damifino to name of few.

I met up in Sedona with some old buddies of mine for a weekend MTB trip and we ended up renting some Ibis Mojos from Dave. This shop rocks and Dave is the man. I have been to more than my share of bike shops in 30 years of riding and Dave has it down. Not a ton of inventory, but he has what you need (basically, he does not sell a bunch of useless crap.) Most importantly, Dave knows mountain biking and mountain bikes inside and out. Plus he is laid back and ultra friendly. He dialed the suspension on my rental Mojo better than that of my own Mojo at home! Now I need to find someone in Portland who has Dave's skill. Go rent, or better yet, buy a Mojo from Dave. Or bring your bike in to him for wrenching, you won't be sorry. Suspension and MTB guru, IMHO....

Customer Service

Dave said he has some helpers, but it was just him the three times I visited the shop. Great, no attitude service (we are out of shape old guys) and he took the time and patience to deal with all of our issues. He also hooked us with major trail help and around town tips. In fact, when we were up in Flag, we got lost on the Sunset trail, called Dave and he got us headed the right way- Thanks Dave!

Best shop in Sedona hands down, and one of the best shop experiences I have had anywhere in the country. I cannot wait to go back. Go visit this guy and see how a shop could and should be run.
