Walnut Cr, CA 94596

From the West by BART: We're 28 miles east of San Francisco (40 minutes from Embarcadero BART to Walnut Creek Bart. HQ is a six-minute walk or three minute bike ride through a supersafe business district from Walnut Creek BART. 

From the West by car: 

HWY24 east past Lafayette.

680N to the Ygnacio Valley Rd. exit (almost immediately).

East on Ygnacia 0.24 miles, then LEFT (North) on Main about 60 yards

RIGHT between Kevin's Noodle Haus (Pho) and the Tinted Window place. Up the hill, to the left of the silver building, plenty of parking, and go into #18.

NOTE: We aren't a regular bike shop, we don't generally take in repairs or fix flats--we don't have people to do it, we don't have a wide array of parts a full-service shop would, and our full-time mechanic is always behind on customer builds. 

Us in a nutshell
We're a small specialty bicycle business, a little out of step with the times. We sell lugged steel frames, leather saddles, wool clothing, and with few exceptions, gear geared toward the super enthusiastic non-competitor. That means we have really good, really neat stuff, and it's nothing at all like what you see in a normal bike shop or in bike magazines or advertisements.

Come in early enough before closing time to get your test rides and business done. Thanks!
