    I happened to swing into Alki Bike and Board because I was driving by and noticed the sale sign. I wanted to check on pricing for a new bike for my older daughter and see what helmets they have now. I’ve shopped at Alki Bike and Board for years when I need something they’d have. Stu and his team are fantastic. I was greeted by Stu when I came in today, he showed me a few bike selections and then showed me a helmet that I had never even thought about but makes sense for multi sport use. Not pushy, just informative, friendly and exactly why I keep going back. Great product, fair pricing, top notch people.
    I’ll be spending more money there again soon when I go to get my daughter fitted for a helmet. I might even talk to them about a new suspension fork for my old hardtail S-Works. See, that’s how you get people to spend money. Be honest, nice and informative. We keep going back. :)

Sorry, comment time is over.
