I stopped in at Dave Lettieri's Fastrack Bicycles shop in Santa Barbara. I hit this spot each year because it is a cool bike shop with a great selection of clothing, memorabilia on the walls and bikes. Normally, it is a bit unkempt which adds to the charm as they run a lot of business through here. However, 3 months ago the place was reorganized and now its a wellkempt bike shop doing a lot of business so will be interesting to see if it remains neat and tidy. The guy working in the back, Luke, is a heck of a sales person. He almost had me buying bibbed shorts to go with the jersey I picked out and tried to sell me a bike. He was undeterred that A; I already had a good bike and B; I was visiting from Ohio.
Great selection of Scott & Trek bikes, along with other brands.
Dave was Lance Armstrong's personal mechanic during one of his Tour wins and prior to that competed on numerous national teams, including the Olympic team, a team at the Goodwill Games and World championship teams. Note his jerseys hanging on the wall.....
....signed jerseys from Armstrong....
....and other jerseys signed by cyclists. Very cool place and Dave seems to always be there, working and not the least bit pretentious.

Yes, Luke is a great salesman! Dave is as good as they come. You could not go to a better shop. I am looking forward to seeing the new shop transformation myself in May.

Very nice collection of bikes and other accessories. Have you ever heard the name “Bicycle Bob’s”??? It is a bicycle shop in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Lompoc and Isla Vista. There you can also get the collection of bikes and they satisfied all the cyclist needs. For more information please visit http://www.bicyclebobs-sb.com/.
