At the end of 2015, David Figueroa and Sean Heck opened Sunset Cycles upstairs in the Claremont Packing House. You may know the location if you’ve stopped at Eureka! on the way home after tackling GMR. We visited the re-purposed warehouse and spoke with David and Sean to find out how things are going at their newly opened shop.
Downtown Claremont is very bike friendly, and getting to the service-oriented Sunset Cycles is no problem (lock your bike out front or bring it upstairs, stairs and elevator available). David and Sean are both SoCal natives who met at a skatepark after years of riding BMX. Now they ride a little bit of everything, and are passionate about bikes built to last. With David’s background in professional ironworking, and Sean’s mechanic experience, Sunset Cycles offers an impressive amount of serviceability for steel bikes (and others) – new and old. They specialize in steel bikes for their dependability, ride feel, and durability, and feature Linus, Fairdale and Bombtrack steel, with a selection of alloy Rocky Mountain MTBs.
Alternatively, for the individual who doesn’t want the ready-to-go turnkey bike, but doesn’t have the experience to build their own, Sunset Cycles can set you up with a bike that you’ll cherish for years. -VP Sunset Cycles
