About Us

Your Local Bike Shop

When Johnny Bargeron, Vince Hinman and John Kibodeaux opened High Desert Bicycles in October 2003, they had a vision of what a bicycle shop should be. They had all left more conventional careers because of their commitment to cycling, and their conviction that the first thing most people do is buy the wrong bike.

We proudly serve all types of cyclists, including new and veteran riders, road and mountain aficionados, and recreation and transportation cyclists. Whether you prefer to shop on our website or to come visit us, we’re here to help you with all of your cycling needs. Learn more about what makes us unique, and visit us today to meet our friendly staff and experience our incredible product selection.

Johnny Bargeron

"All the things that made a bike fun for you as a child can be forgotten for a while when you start driving cars... but they're still there. You should be as excited about your next bike as you were about the first one you ever had." 

John Kibodeaux

"We want you to get it right the first time, and spare yourself a lot of pain and suffering. We can help you pick the right machine, and then custom fit it to you.

Imagine the most comfortable bike you could ever have. How would it change your life? The right fit is at least as important for the recreational rider as it is for the professional cyclist."

Vince Hinman

"A bike is a very personal thing. It needs to fit you perfectly.

If you go for the lowest price, pick any brand and model with no clue what they are, you're wasting every dollar you spend.

You're not going to enjoy riding the bike, and it's just going to disappear with the stuff in the garage. If you're really determined to get in better physical shape, you'll keep buying other kinds of equipment, and that bike will have plenty of company - back there in the shadows."
