We rented electric bikes to take up to La Jolla cove and back. Easy transaction, they made sure we were comfortable before heading off.

I wanted to buy an e-bike, they answered my questions and made valuable suggestions that got me feeling confident not only with the purchase but down the line if I want to upgrade my bike or have it repaired. Good bikes and good prices and I can tell good future service. Mike Doyle, P.B. resident

We had found this place online and it was a short walk from our hotel in PB. We passed several other bike rental places on our way but I am happy with our choice. The bikes were great quality and the staff was extremely helpful with advice on bike paths and routes - and even hikes in the area. We rented the fat tire bikes which were totally awesome! I would definitely recommend reserving your bikes ahead of time- especially if you want the fat tire bikes, because they have a very limited supply.

I visit the Pacific / Mission Beach area several times a year for work and pleasure. I have used Surf Monkey on several occasions in the past and have referred hundreds of people to their store as I have always had great a great experience. Today, I will no longer be able to refer folks to their store. During my most recent trip to Pacific Beach, my family and I rented bikes to take on the board walk and ride up to La Jolla. The bikes worked great, but the service was terrible. We have always had a great experience in the past with suggestions on new rides, or pointing out the features on the bikes. The person today was rude the entire time, acting like he was put out that we were even there. He was short with my kids when they asked questions. One of my kids rang a bell on bike and he literally snapped back and said "don't touch that." There are too many options for bikes rentals in the Pacific / Mission Beach to have poor service. When there is literally a shop on every corner that offers the same product as your store, the one thing that can separate you from the competition is service.

One of the best things we did in San Diego was rent electric bikes from Surf Monkey. Although they don't officially open until 10, they were happy to rent bikes at 9:30 (doors were open). We rode around the bay (15 miles or so). When we had two flat tires, Dylan kindly drove 8 miles out to deliver a new bike right away-- thanks again! We were very impressed and happy with this experience.
