The cyclegear here in San Diego is always packed. They undercut all the other local shops prices. Hell, you can even haggle with them. I've never had a bad experience there. You can buy shit gear or you can buy quality gear anywhere.

Nope.. there's only one in my area, and by area I mean 30+ miles away, and it only has only their house brand with maybe a little bit of Alpinestars or Dainese gear sprinkled in but not much. There really are no good motorcycle retailers in the area at all though.

There is one 30mins away which i sometimes went to. The employees were great there. (Interacting and actually doing their job) As for quality products, meh, gloves suck, helmets do protect you but besides that they really terrible.

I'm a fan. I've been buying from them for years now. I bought a pair of cheap gloves (can't remember the brand) from them and the stitching unraveled on one of the fingers. They were damn near a year old and they immediately replaced the glove with no questions asked.

One opened near me not too long ago. It's pretty convenient for the occasional bike product. Their Freeze-Out and Heat-Out products are great and inexpensive. I've been using their balaclava and boot liners to stretch the riding season further. I also went out on a limb and bought a pair of their house brand Sedici waterproof winter gloves. They're not as nice as my Helds, but they've allowed me to ride into the 20s without heated grips. I also bought a pair of Sedici waterproof armored thermal pants. Also seems like a good product. Time will tell how they hold up, but it hasn't been the garbage some people experience. The staff has been nice and helpful as well.

Pretty much have only used them for tires, they sometimes have competitive pricing. Probably won't do that in future now that I get most parts online.

Cycle Gear form a mutual holding company with Revzilla this year. Makes me worry about Revzilla quality.

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity

Wish I had more to choose from here in South Africa... Our "Bike stores" are not very well stocked... and then with the way imports work here stuff costs twice as much as what it would cost if you bring it in yourself.
Not many online stores offer international shipping to here...
