One of A Kind

SD Wheel Works Offers a Unique Bicycle Shopping Experience

For SD Wheel Works CEO and Owner Kilian Landers and General Manager Chris Garcia, a simple dream has grown into a unique, cutting-edge cycling destination. As roommates 10 years ago, they knew, “One day we’re going to have a bike shop.” They joined their passion for mechanics and craftsmanship with Operations Manager and BMX enthusiast Tom Lopez to open SD Wheel Works in 2014. Lead Machinist and Fabricator Jon White soon joined the team, bringing his talent for creating new and innovative products.

Now, stepping into the clean, modern Miramar location is a breath of fresh air. “Our shop is designed to feel comfortable the moment you walk in,” Kilian explained. “We want our clients to be able to see and choose a bicycle without feeling pressured or overwhelmed.”


And there’s plenty to choose from at SD Wheel Works. The shop serves local families and all types of cyclists, offering a broad inventory of bicycles and accessories, including kids’ bikes, E-bikes, BMX, and touring, commuter, mountain, city, and road bikes. Kilian added, “We work with more ‘boutique’ bicycle brands, which offers our clients the ability to choose a bicycle that not only serves the function they’re looking for, but looks just as good as it performs.”

“There is no bicycle shop like SD Wheel Works.”

SD Wheel Works also offers services and repairs for any bicycle. “The experienced, knowledgeable staff and our unique set of tooling – including a spoke cutter, which means we can build almost any custom wheel set – allows us to service bicycles quickly and efficiently,” Kilian said. The goal is to get customers out riding as soon as possible.

Stop by SD Wheel Works for a Tune-Up Special – service brakes, service shifting, lube chain, minor wheel true, and safety checkpoint for only $40, regularly $65. Or bring your bike and let loose on the mini ramp/half pipe in the back of the shop, and stay tuned on Facebook and Instagram for casual local group rides. Keeping the community on the move is part of the SD Wheel Works mission, and as Kilian is proud to share, “There is no bicycle shop like SD Wheel Works.”
