We're looking for mechanics for our ever busy shop. We like at least two years experience in a retail shop environment. If you're interested please send us your resume, and some days/times when you are available to meet with us. Also let us know why you love bicycles and why you would want to work with us. We prefer full time, but let us know what you can do, and let's start a conversation. Most important is professional retail bicycle shop experience. We're busy and need people who can hit the ground running. We look forward to hearing from you!

Hello folks, if you think you need a tune-up, or any repair you are welcome to bring in your bicycle when we are open so a mechanic can assess the work needed on your bicycle. Based on the assessment we can either schedule a tune-up for a future date, or if less work is required take in your bicycle as a walk in. We are not scheduling any more tune-ups thru 2014, we will hit the reset button January 2nd, and schedule all tune-ups on a first come first served basis. We can take care of basic walk-in repairs any days we are open, again these are on a first come, first served basis. We tend to fill up each days schedule within the first two hours of opening. Any questions please come in, or give us a call. Thank you, and keep the rubber-side down.
New(ish) in our shop Tip Top Bike Shop jerseys. It took me five years, and we're really excited with the result. They are printed by Capo --local company and excellent quality, I gave them a complicated design, and they were the only company to say "OK, no problem." Come in and check them out! They help you to go faster and make climbing hills a breeze...!
Whooo wheee check this out, one of our riders/neighbors/customers/friends Nick Perry made this amazing video for us. Tip Top Bike Shop essence distilled into 2 minutes... fantastic!

Art Murmur. First Friday every month. Next event is Friday, November 7th.
There are many galleries open and art events taking place during each Art Murmur. We have a few great galleries in and around Temescal. It's always a terrific event to ride a bike too!
Temescal Farmers Market. Every Sunday 9am - 1pm
Held at the DMV 5300 Claremont Avenue.
Always a bustling event. Local produce, food and drink, and local artisans. All good, the only part we'd like to see changed is the early start time....we know a lot of people who would like to see it start later and end later. It's Sunday in Temescal afterall!
Who we are

and Bicycles. As people who ride every day, we want to share our enthusiasm
and knowledge with people who want to start riding bikes, keep riding,
or ride something new. The shop is thoroughly enjoying being open &
we look forward to helping more people find the perfect new ride, fix
up a loved old ride, or help you find the perfect bicycle accessory. We
look forward to meeting you all soon.

Reasons Why We Love Bicycles
We're Not just Another Bike Shop
Bicycles are one best examples of human invention.
They can be made using the highest tech construction and materials and/or
the most artistic human craftsmanship. They can also be not much more
than two wheels connected in line.
Bicycles are easy to make our own. Whether covering your bike in stickers,
getting just the right sounding bell, or the exact vintage wheels for
your restoration project.
Riding is an easy, joint-friendly, way to build strength and cardio-vascular
health for all ages/sizes of people.
And dang, aren't bikes fun! A quiet ride along the water, an eye-watering
decent, an adventure in the woods, winning that race to the end of the
block beside your friend... this time, or just being able to see and smell
the flowers in bloom.
These are a few reasons why we love bikes. We are sad when a bike is too
damaged to ride, we are happy when we get a person riding again. We are
very happy to ride in the neighborhood everyday; meeting new people and
seeing our friends on bikes.
What we have
We have a full range of new bicycles and accessories. Our
goal is to provide the best performing, best fitting gear. For now, please
