There is no other place like it. Bear Valley Bikes is a mom and pop bike shop where everything is done with love. The mechanic, Derek Hermon, is extremely knowledgable and friendly.

Bear Valley Bikes is a first class Specialized dealer in the Big Bear Lake valley. Derek (owner/mechanic/racer) is a first class individual that is always assisting the visitor to find that perfect trail. He has a vast amount of knowledge and is always available to provide guidance to anyone desiring it. He also has been an avid supporter of the community and is always available in community rides. It is amazing that a shop this small can provide this much support.

Customer Service

The mechanic, Clay is also a first class guy. Very helpful and always available to provide his insight.

I recently was up for a weekend of riding the lifts. I needed a brake bleed on my front brake. I had the bleed kit w/ me but wasnt confident doing it myself. The owner(cant remember his name) took my into the mechanics area and gave me a full tutorial on how to do it. He was super friendly about it. Also I needed some pedals ( I forgot mine at home). They didnt have the crank bro's style I wanted. So Derek sold me a gently used set off his own bike for an incredible deal. All I can say is they made me feel like I was a local in the shop. The service, friendliness, knowledge was way above and beyond. They even told me how to get to some secret trails off the lift that were gnarly! The shop is small but it has high end stuff. The funniest thing was there was a big brown labrador half sleeping on the couch as you walk in. He didnt move an inch the whole time I was there with people, music, etc-hilarious. Overall they just make you feel like you belong and no big box store BS. Thanks guys!
