San Diego North County’s favorite family ride shop!  We offer fair & honest service for all your bicycle & outdoor sporting needs.  We sell and repair mountain bikes, road bikes, bikepacking/touring, commuter, bmx & more!   As we grow, we will be further developing into a full service ride shop catering to multiple sports, including  Pro Scooters, Skateboards & Camping!

While our E-Commerce site will cross many thresholds (bike, scooter, skate, outdoor & more), please note that our brick & mortar location is kept to be a quaint "family friendly" shop atmosphere, and is not our e-commerce showroom (...yet).

As a small family shop, we obviously realize we have a hard time competing against the big box shops and online stores.  While our background comes from high-end sales & service, we recognize that our community can be overwhelmed when they go into a high-end shop.  They are looking for a casual shop, where no one is looking down on you for considering an entry level bike.   While our resources do allow us to bring in expensive, high-end bikes, we made a conscious decision to keep our in-store options strictly budget friendly (for the time being at least).  Whether you have a beginner bike you purchased used, or a $10,0000 race bike, it makes no difference…we are happy to help!

What also makes us different is that we offer the best consultation for your bike, component or accessory.  Whether you buy from us or not, we want to make sure you are making the correct decisions and happy with your purchase

Jeremiah Dean

Owner, Jeremiah Dean, lives & breathes cycling & the outdoor world.   He has a passion for mountain biking, road cycling, touring, bikepacking, & more!

Jeremiah helped his father “Hoppy” (who initially started the shop as a Recumbent Trike Shop called “T.Ryx Recumbent Trikes”) to develop the shop into a full-service bike shop.  While small, the capabilities of the shop are endless, and offer more knowledge and assistance than your standard bicycle shop.

How so?

Jeremiah’s background reach deep into the cycling community.   A 20 year industry veteran, Jeremiah has a resume that surpasses most.  A life long cyclist Jeremiah began racing downhill in his late teens while the US National Series was at it’s peak.  Upon his retirement from competitive racing, Jeremiah joined the “industry” in a style what would be come his trademark – work endlessly & successfully in multiple jobs.  Initially a sports photographer, Jeremiah’s images became iconic for multiple brands and media outlets.   Highly touted as a marketing expert, several brands have hired Jeremiah to help develop their program, and build successful teams. As an artist, Jeremiah worked for and started his own custom paint house, painting helmets for many of the world’s top action sports athletes and teams.  In recent years, Jeremiah took the initiative to develop a National Mountain Bike Series for USA Cycling.  USAC allowed him to run the gravity side, dubbed the ProGRT, while USAC adopted the design and created the ProXCT.  In order to help support and promote the series, Jeremiah started his own professional race team which went by a few different names over the years – DRD/Tomac, DRD/X-Fusion/Intense, & in the final years ARMA Energy MTB.

Recently, Jeremiah has worked as a sports agent for an agency called Wasserman.  Wasserman is a sports marketing and management firm with global expertise in building brands, properties and athletes’ careers. It’s highly likely that Wasserman represents many of your favorite athletes today!

Currently, Jeremiah also manages the mountain bike division of the Monster Media Racing cycling team & club program.
