a customer told us she saw us on the fall Salvation Army flyer she received. we thank the S.A. for including us, which was a very nice thing to do. always remember those who are less fortunate and if you can help, in any way, please do. as i always say, kindness doesn't cost anything. thank you.
i "Jessie" grew up in inner city New Jersey. my family belonged and worshiped at the Salvation Army. my parents were bell ringers even on the coldest of days and wore their uniforms. the S.A. sent me to music camp and taught me how to play the trumpet. i was a Sunbeam (like Girl Scouts), became a Cadet when i was a teenager and even played the tambourine. if it wasn't for the S.A., my family wouldn't have had some Thanksgivings and my little brothers and i wouldn't have had some Christmases. now that i can "pay it forward" and help others, my husband and i donate bicycles to the local Salvation Army for those who are less fortunate. it brings love and joy to our hearts to do so. spread KINDNESS like confetti. it's a wonderful feeling. enjoy your day, be well and stay safe!

Great News!! We got a call, yesterday morning, from Jasmine, a KOLD's newsperson. She informed us that we were nominated, by one of our customers, for the Arizona's Heart and Sol award, which is sponsored by Casino del Sol and won. It honors those making a difference in our community.
She stopped by in the afternoon to interview us and honor us for helping our community.
We received a $300 gift card. Now we can help even more people.
We will be on KOLD to (1/13/22) night at 6pm.
Hope you get a chance to watch it. We would like to thank, Meredith, from the bottom of our hearts, for her kind words. Always be kind!
If you missed the newscast, log onto KOLD.com and look under Heart & Sol recpients for January 12, 2022. You should be able to watch it. Thank you for your support!
When Gary & I heard the story about Ramon Gonzales's Miracle on 31st Street and how, for the past 50 years, he's been making Christmas possible for so many children, we decided it was time for us to help. Sadly, Ramon passed away last December, of Covid, but his sons are continuing the tradition. They are in need of toys for children of all ages. We will have a box for donations, at the bike shop, starting Tuesday, December 7th thru Friday, December 10th. If you can't make it to the shop, you can bring your donations, on Dec. 11th, to Advanced Auto Parts, located at 1300 S 6th Ave, from 10-2. The toy giveaway is on Sunday, December 19th. (see post for details). Let's help Ramon Gonzales's Miracle live on....He'll be watching from above with a HUGE smile on his face and lots of LOVE in his heart. Isn't that what miracles are all about?
There are many more people out riding their bikes, these days. They are enjoying the outside and the pleasure riding brings. If you've been in the shop, lately, you know we have many bikes to be serviced. Please know that, currently, our "promise date/when you get bike back" is a couple weeks out. Best option is to call and make an appointment. 520-326-4044. Then, you bring in your bike a couple days before the promise date and only be without your bike for a couple days as opposed to longer. Gary is the only mechanic so we thank you for your support, understanding and patience. Enjoy your day and please be safe!
i gave this wish nik to gary, as good luck, when he went cross country on his bike in 1992. in june, he will be 29 years young, the wish nik, not gary thus the worn out jersey. he came with the cycling clothes which was great. we would like you to meet our "shop" mascot. 1st photo before pandemic. 2nd photo at start of pandemic, 3rd photo a brand new mask made by Bethany (my very good friend, Melody's sister). thank you, so so much, to both of you, for taking the time & patience to make our little guy a real mask. we have a sign on our front door stating that masks are required in the bike shop. of course there are no exceptions, not even for our mascot. he understands, though, so all is ok. enjoy your week and please be safe!
Hi, my name is Gary Menard. My wife Jessie and I are the proud owners of Pima Street Bicycle. After many years of working, running and owning various bicycle related businesses, I have returned to my true original love - fixing bicycles!
Jessie and I have over 50 years of cycling experience, between us, and we will always
do our absolute best to serve your bicycle repair and accessory needs.
Pima Street Bicycle provides superior customer service and high quality repairs for all makes and models of bicycles. Bicycle Repair is our main focus and I've been a pretty darn good mechanic since attending United Bicycle Institute back in the 80's. That's right, I'm an old school guy who actually overhauls and fixes things, instead of just replacing it! I'd love the opportunity to get your favorite ride running the best it ever has.
If you're looking for a great deal, on a used bike, we sell bikes on consignment.
You can find a listing on the Consignment Page.
Stop by and say hello. We would love to get to know you.
Thank you for taking the time to check out our website.
