Properly named bikebling.com so this is a place I see fit to mention as we are always looking for online retailers and a quality shop that has a good selection on hand, I personally hung out there and looked in all the shadows and corners and they are all full of bling!

New on MTBR forums:

1. I placed my first order with Bikebling.com this week and they were awesome to deal with. I placed an order on Tuesday morning for a Mavic EX823 rim and used the "realdeal" promo code from there banner add of the mtbr.com homepage to get a 10% discount. I called first and spoke with Terry or Kerry, not sure of the name, but he said they had the rim in stock and it would ship out the same day. So, I finalized the order, and had the rim delivered on Thursday by UPS Ground service. Not only was this the least expensive place I could find to buy this rim but they got it to me super fast. I know there has been chatter about these guys being connected to Beyond Bikes and whatever the connections are I am not sure but I couldn't be happier after my experience with bikebling.com

 

2. Gotta agree with the great service. I called them earlier today to see if a couple parts were in stock and heard Kerry juggling customers in the background and pulled out one of the parts I wanted to confirm stock. I subsequently placed the order on line.
Now (as in 8:30 PM on a Friday) I get a call from him letting me know that one part will be split shipped as its not in stock at the moment. Then a couple minutes later another call to confirm that the rotor adapter I ordered was the correct one. I really appreciated a call to let me know what's up plus the additional attention to detail about the adapter.Most excellent! No place has done that before.

3. I only have had one purchase with Bikebling.com but as I stated before it was a very easy and satisfying experience. I am glad to hear you had a good experience as well. All to often we only hear of the bad experiences that people have and this is important for us to know but it is much less seldom that we hear about good service. I plan to place my second order with them next week. Hopefully it will be as good as the first and if it is I will post on here again.

Yelp:

Bike Bling is a fairly new bike store to open and upon visiting you are blown away with the quality of merchandise in the store. This place stocks more than your typical bike store and its the nice stuff. No Walmart bikes here. I like this place because it carries gear you can usually only find online and its at competitive prices. Whats cool is you can shop, pay online and then pick your goods up in person expediting the checkout procedure. If you pay in store they email you your receipt which is a feature I like. Bike Bling is certainly geared towards the more hardcore cyclist which is exactly what I want and like. In general a helpful, well stocked bike shop.

Best bike shop in Southern California.
In my honest opinion. You have to stop by their pro shop and check it all out. The place is amazing! They have all of the latest bikes, cycling gear an awesome apparel dept and some of the best service to be found anywhere. Super friendly, internet pricing in the store and so much to look at. You have to see it to understand what I'm getting at. You'll be glad you did!

Guys,
I just wanted to let you know that I am very happy with the service that I received from Kevin. He repaired my bike in a timely manner and was able to do a temporary repair until the parts came in. He also made recommendations that I need to think about a couple of other repairs in the future. I have been to many bike shops around town and he has given me the best service ever!
I am so delighted with your shop that I expressed my thoughts on my Facebook page and included a link for those who do not live in the area and can maybe visit the website.
As you know... a happy customer is the best form of advertising!!
Thank you,
Julie Miller
