CyclArt is NOT a virtual business!

We have always been based in an industrial zone workshop suitable for our paint and metalwork operations.  This allows installation of serious equipment and keeps our overhead costs low relative to retail or residential space.  In fact, to keep costs low & indulge Jim's passionate work ethic, Jim & Susan lived in a rustic loft over the Cribbage Lane shop for 13 years.  Now we have a beautiful 5,000 square foot facility in Vista, CA.

Located  8 miles from the coast and equally close to beautiful mountains, Vista has a very mild climate ideal for year-round bike riding.

If you can, please visit us!  Our address is:

CyclArt, 2590 Pioneer Ave.  Suite A,

Vista, CA 92081-8427.

Phone 760-599-1015.  Fax 760-599-1017

Hours M-F 10AM to 6PM.  We are usually here evenings and weekend afternoons, but you should call ahead before going out of your way at those times, as we might be out riding!
