My LBS - "Budget Pro Bicycles" in EagleRock,SoCal853

Located in a tiny corner of a shopping center, it is deceiving from the outside, it is actually a pretty big store. (Sorry I didn't take an exterior shot - to dark.)

This is a shot as you walk in the front door:


Are you into Campy 10 or Shimano 10?:

These guys are awesome friends and riding buddies.
I hangout there so much that my wife knows the number of the store by heart(scary), she also knows the guys and their wives. Got to go.She just called!

Going home, I run into a typical sight in SoCal - Traffic and filming - there at the local Coffe house!

I concur...great shop and great people..t-moore

They've changes lots over the years. Definitely not the greatest prices, but they have the stuff in stock, and that's what's most important. I've raced with those guys. They were cat 3s last time I checked...One of them, i forget which one, did an awesome job of making a magnet for my ksryiums. Good shop, and it's on the way for me when going to ride at the rose bowl on tues/thurs from hollywood. nice photos.

If you ask and are a regular they will match prices!
They are very fair, they realize that most people now shop on the internet.

Both Manny and Alex were up-graded to Cat.2 at the end of this year. Both w/ great results in the Cat.3's this year!

Back when I used to be a quasi-regular customer, it was owned by an older couple whose son, Paul, was running a road bike shop called Bicycle Adrenaline, out in Simi Valley. After his shop went belly-up, he went back to Budget Pro. I guess it's over a year since I was there--what's going on?

Michelle is Heinz's Daughter, they retired and sold the shop to her. It's been theres for about 3 years.

Still in the same family!
I agree. A fine store. I buy there whenever possible.il sogno

Even better, they have lots of hills behind the store. When you test ride a bike, you can actually do some climbing and descending.

That is a great looking store; I hope they are doing really good - they deserve it
