I count myself very lucky to have CK Bikes so close by. Craig is a trustworthy mechanic and a good man. The work is completed promptly and thoroughly. If you want to get in shape while having fun, you can join the shop's Thursday night group ride. A+
Super competent, modest prices, friendly and knowledgeable service. Doesn't get any better than this shop.

Amazing experience!! We lost a bike off our camper in the way up from North Carolina to Maine. We called the bike shop and they stayed open late for us to get there. They were more than fair on the cost of repair. They had us in our way in a day.
