World Cycles offers great service and knowledge. The owners are very nice and now a lot about bicycles, not only do they know bikes they actually ride them. Is a medium sized shop, with road as well as mountain bikes, you will not find cruiser here. Their fitting services are must.

Customer Service

Excellent customer service and very nice people.

World Cycles is a super bike shop. This shop does not have a huge bike inventory or millions of parts, but they do have a tremendous knowledge and are wiling to share it with you. Since I started going to this shop my ridding has really improved. Their group rides and events are exceptional.

Customer Service

I give their customer service five starts. They treat you as if you are very important and will resolve any issues you may have right in the spot.

Road and Mountain bikes by Orbea, Scott, Wilier, Jamis. You can also order accessories on their web site. They have weekly road rides every Saturday and mountain bike rides on Wednesday evening and on Sundays. It's best to check out their web site for the schedule or sign up for their newletters.

Customer Service

The owners at World Cycles bring a refreshing perspective to a locally owned bike shop than the "big box" stores. Very personable and geniune.

I purchased a Scott Addict frame and was fitted when the bike was finally completed (components came off my old Orbea Opal). No fancy high tech laser fitting - just good old rulers and plumb lines. This was very important as my frame had the integrated seat mast so there was only one chance to cut it correctly. Since the fitting I have enjoyed riding more. I did not realize how "miss sized" I was on my Orbea (I purchased the Orbea from another "techy" shop in San Diego).

This is what I would call a “Pro Bike Shop” Most of their bikes are on the high end side. After I got new bike at different LBS (local bike shop) I was having problems with pain, I got fitted at other LBS but the problems continued and actually aggravated. A friend recommended World Cycles, and told me how good his bicycle was fitted so I decided to try them out. Now my bicycle is fitted correctly, my problems disappeared, and my ridding improved drastically. I’m a believer!

Customer Service

Their customer service skills are great. The shop is run by a very nice couple that actually still races pro mountain bike as well as road; this shows in their knowledge of bikes and all the stuff related to cycling. The shop’s technical expertise in excellent, the way it should be at all the other shops.

Excelent shop, they ride so they know and understand what you are looking for, be it parts, equipment or how you want your bike to ride and handel, on the road or on the trail. They take the time to find out what you want and do their best to guide you to the best choice. That goes for a $3000 bike or a $7.00 seat post for your kids bike. They bike fits are the best that I have had, I am on my 3rd road bike and 2nd Mt. Bike and the fit I got on my Scott keeps me feeling great in the saddel, for a short 35 miler or century, there is never any numbness or joint pain. I will continue to shop and visit as long as I am in the San Diego area. (may even come back for my next road bike)

Customer Service

Excelent as stated above, they help out to the fullest be it for one dollar or the $3k bike.

As they are riders, and bike shop owners they go the extra mile to make sure you feel good, in the shop or on the road/trail. It is also nice to keep the ma and pa bike shops around for the extra mile they go for their customers.

One of the finest bike shops around town. They carry mid to high end bikes, mountain and road, The Veloz line of clothing is a favorite of many riders in town.

Customer Service

Old school customer service, you can say one on one. They do a terrific bike fit, have had several done for myself and my family along with my riding friends.
One of only a handfull of shops that cater to the hispanic cyclist, they come as far as ensenada.
The owners are very knowledgeable both on road bikes and mountain bikes.

World Cycles is a bike shop that brings you back to the types of shops that were in San Diego before the super stores took over. The owners ride both mountain and road - A LOT! Many times I've been there and they are working the counter still in their riding gear! They both race and have men's and women's MTB championship hardware to prove thier skills. They are real cyclists serving cyclists.

World Cycles carries only the best quality bikes, parts and accessories. Mid to high end bikes are thier specialty. They have bikes that are hard to find at reasonable pricing. The shop has some unique products. The Veloz cycling wear is fantastic. It feels like you're not wearing anything. The Uvex helmets fit perfectly. The shop has a good selection of mid to higher end bikes and parts - especially for the weight weenie.......... more carbon than I knew was available.

Any special order - especially high end parts like ceramic bearings - will get to you within a few days.

World Cycles has the best bike fitting program I've ever seen. For a very reasonable fee they will size your frame, seat height, stem length, handlebar height, torso angles, knee angles and hip angles to give you a perfect fit.















Customer Service

The owner knows quite a bit about all types of bikes and riding. He can dial your bike in for the way YOU ride, not just to the "book". You come away from the shop feeling like you've just visited some friends, not just a bike shop.

They have a "try me" saddle program. They will loan you a saddle to ride a few rides. If you like it, they will order that saddle for you. If not, you can try another for a few rides. Once you find the saddle you like, they will order the same saddle while you still get to use the loaner. That's service!

During your bike fitting the owner will spend at least an hour with you and your bike, dialing everything in meticulously. He enters all of your measurement data into his PC so you'll have it for any bike you bring in or the next one you buy. Once you're fitted, you'll feel your bike becoming part of your body. Afterward, you will have more power, better balance, less fatigue and more comfort during the ride.

My bikes were supposedly fit to me from the store I bought them from. They looked like they knew what they were doing. After the adjustments from World Cycles, my riding has dramatically improved. They REALLY fit you.

I was sore all the time. I wasn't feeling confident with technical terrain. My friend said, "Go see Alex at Worl Cycles and get your bike fit for you". So I did. World Cycles' specialty is to fit you to your bike - whether you already have a great bike or buy one from them. Alex took about an hour to fit me to my bike - every angle of my legs, arms and torso. I ride a Maverick - hard to fit for somebody who really doesn't know how to set riders' angles. My saddle was way too forward and my handle bars were way too high. I had no idea. So, World Cycles adjusted the heights, sold me a new stem and sent me to the trails with a new position.

Since having my bike fit at World Cycles, my hands aren't numb, I have reduced my pace from 6.50 to 6.22 and falling, my power to the ground is definitely maximized, I am climbing stronger and I am riding longer without the fatigue, aches and pains.

The folks at World Cycles definitely know their technical stuff too. They've helped me dial in my bike without spending much money. They only carry - or order - high quality bikes and parts.

BTW - If you want a sick pair of bib shorts that feel like you ain't wearin' nothin', get their Veloz brand. They fit me great - I'm a stocky, short fire plug type guy. The absolutely most comfortable short I have ever had - since 1987

Customer Service

World Cycles' customer service is outstanding. They take time with each customer. They remember your name. They call when your part comes in - or sometimes just to say hi if you're a regular.

The owners cycle and race regularly, so they are on top of the newest things on the market - ESPECIALLY if you're a weight weenie! More carbon stuff than I knew existed!

It's a shop like the "old school" shops where you can stop by to hang out, BS a little, have a coffee and then be on your way - like stopping by an old friend's house. World Cycles has it all - no hype and no pressure.

World Cycles Bicycle Shop is one of the best local bike shops that I have had the pleasure of doing business with. It is a small shop that offers very personalized service. They carry top end brands and can order just about anything a cyclist may need. The owners are professional cyclists for both road and mountain, so they are very knowledgable when dealing with customer questions about riding and equipment.

Customer Service

Customer service at the shop is excellent. The sales area is well maintained and organized. Bike service is the best. The owner is also the wrench on site. He has been flawless with my Serotta and even spent time to re-fit me correctly to my bike.
