Even though the bike shop indicated that they fixed the flat tire on my bike and performed a tune up, I experienced another flat tire upon riding the bike home. I took the bike to a different bike shop after that and the other bike shop confirmed that the bike needed a new rim strip and that the previous bike shop (

) should have replaced the rim strip. After finding out this news, my wife called the manager at
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
who was unfortunately very rude and not responsive to the concern that they did not adequately repair the flat / fix the bike. She then asked for the owner (
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
) to call her and speak with her about the issue. The owner never called back and when my wife repeatedly called back and finally was able to get a hold of the owner, he was also very rude and ended up hanging up the phone on her. Both my wife and I want to be very supportive of local bike shops, but unfortunately, the
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
does not provide good customer service nor proper bike repair services. In light of this, I would strongly recommend that people avoid taking their bikes or purchasing items from this bike shop.

Poor service. Sales person was not least bit helpful. Other employees in the store at the time didn't seem to care.

After a week long enjoying the Surly LHT DIsc
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
(Highly recommend it), i returned back to
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
and noticed that the rear tire fender was broken. I took it bike to the sthop for advise on how to exchange it via warranty. Note the fender was not more than 2 weeks old since I had ICS install it. The owner promised to take pictures and send them to the Manufacturer. In the interim, i asked them to go ahead and exchange the fenders and place new racks at a total cost of additional $500. At that point, i had spent around $2000 in that store. When I got back to pick it up I was informed that the manufacturer declined the warranty. I was shocked since any other store would have replaced the fender without any hassles. Disappointed, I went back home and after talking with another bike store they recommended I reach out to the manufacturer directly. Long story short, the ICS store owner simply lied to me and never bothered even asking for a fender replacement.
The fender manufacturer sent me a replacement after I had sent them images of the broken fender with no questions asked and apologized on behalf of the ICS store. I tried to contact the store owner to get an answer, and his comments basically said he decided that I had broken the fender and that was that.
I ended up purchasing a SECOND Surly LHT bicycle from
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
at significant reduced price and would never ever go back to this store. Bottom line there are multiple better bicycle stores around
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
and this one truly deserves the F I am granting them.

I was looking for a crusier type bike for myself to be able to ride comfortably when my wife rides her bike.
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
our salesperson, was extremely helpful, patient, and knowledgable. He spent quite a bit of time helping with this decision, offering suggestions and ideas that I would not otherwise thought of. Two weeks later, the seat just didn't feel right. I stopped by and they told me to bring the bike in and they help determine a fix. The next day, I took the bike back and
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
quickly helped with another seat. Within 15 minutes I was trying this out. He mentioned that if this did not work that I might want to consider riding pants that has a cushion that might help. Not only did he provide great customer service but after I took my trial ride, he came out and loaded the bike into my SUV. While making my initial purchase we saw several customers come in and all were treated the same way. This is why I will go back for any of our biking needs. One great team at the Trek store in
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
and one great sales person -

The owners,
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
and
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
, are extremely attentive to their customers and know the bike business inside and out. They go above and beyond what is expected. I just moved to the area and had unexpected company coming to visit Florida from Canada. I wanted the visit to be nice and be able to ride bikes together. They serviced the bike quickly even though it was just prior to a very busy 4th of

I'm leaving one star, because no stars is not an option. The $450 "coaching plan" is the topic for this review. I don't know about the other "plans" but I consider taking money for this "plan" unethical, because what they do is copy and paste from pre-written workouts, there's nothing personalized about it. I pretty much got an automated feed for the entire three months of the same ride suggestions over and over even after cutting them off after the first month, when I realized they were copying and pasting workouts that were clearly written for someone else, since they had personal comments in them not written for me.
Their advertising hype says they coach "all levels and abilities" but don't buy into (no pun intended) that, because the coach I got for mountain biking took one look at me and decided I wasn't a podium contender. I could see it on his face, it was a look like he couldn't be less interested. In fact he hardly looked at me when I walked up to meet him in Starbucks for the one-hour consultation, which Ionly got because I brought it up. Originally he emailed me "as soon as we receive your money, I'll put the plan up on Training Peaks." There was nothing about the one hour consultation until I brought it up, and he obviously didn't even want to be there when we met. All of the big money clients he has I'm sure will disagree, because he's making a lot of $$ off of them, so why wouldn't he give them the royal treatment? The $450 plan however, was one where (he ASSumed) there would be no ongoing income stream, so just get the money, go through the motions and then write it off. I was supposed to get a one-month check in with the "coach" (he's too busy promoting himself on facebook, managing his own team and competing in his own events to have time to coach beginners) --at the one month I got zero. No call, no email
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
. Five weeks into it, after I'd paid another chunk of change for his skills clinic, during the clinic as he rode past he asked "how's it going" and I said "this plan is not comprehensive enough" and as he was riding off leaving me in the dust he said, "just follow the plan, it works." So that feedback pretty much just got ignored and brushed off.
After a month of getting into it, I realized there is so much more to training for a race than a cut and paste riding schedule (written for someone else :o) and yet he didn't suggest anything else because he really didn't want to coach me. I brought this up with the owner and asked for a partial refund, because I felt like I got ripped off, and he lied and told the owner he HAD suggested a more involved coaching plan. Last time I looked, I didn't have a poor memory, and I consider this another unethical act. If you're a beginner and just getting into racing, and want a REAL coaching experience, instead of a cut and paste "sucker born every minute" plan, go with CTS. If you have some weird fetish for throwing money away and getting the least value for your money, go with
Wiscasset Bicycle Repair Provider Name Locked
. And let's face it, most of us don't have $450 to throw away. That's what irks me more than anything.
