Yesterday I bought and picked up the street/trick bike I had as a kid at jonnyrockbikes. It is a 1986 Schwinn Predator Free Form Z in bebe blue. I just wanted to write and let the internet world know you guys have a great shop with a cool vibe. After reading your website today I love the charity work too. Thanks for the rare find, and being as geeked up over the bike as I was.

Hi Jonny, Just want to thank you again for rebuilding my vintage Trek and bringing it back to like new- better than new! I really appreciate the attention to detail that you gave the project. I wish you and the guys continued success.

I LOVE MY BIKE! Johnny doesn't have to rely on his good looks even though he could. He actually knows a lot about costumer service and meeting their needs. The cute-factor is just a bonus.

Found Johnny's on google. Stopped by the shop and met with great customer service. Looked at inventory and was impressed with the quality of their restorations and rebuilds. Very cool concept. I had a line on an older Trek 6500 with a front derailer issue. Brought bike in to get their feel for the value of the bike and what it would take to get it on the road. The feedback I got was honest and backed with knowledge and integrity. In for a tune up now at a rate that blows the competition away. I will be a long term return customer and strongly suggest anybody wanting good, honest and affordable service do the same.

Hi, I was looking at your bikes on CL and came to your site. I see that you recycle bikes. I organize the Vermillion River Clean Up in Hastings MN and the amount of bikes we pull out each year can be as many as 30 +. I'm not sure why the kids in Hastings like to throw them in the river but they do. It's a shame that they just go to the dump. If you are interested in receiving these bikes or checking them out for parts let me know. Some are in good condition....some are not. This years clean up is Sept. 14, 2013. Thanks! Nora

Hi Johnny, you tuned up and dialed up my 1997 Raleigh M80 with new cranks, chairing, bottom bracket, cassette, and chain. It rides better than new. Plus with the new wide bars, and short 60mm stem. it now has laser accurate steering. For any and all bike service, this is where to go. Thanks Johnny.

This is one of those nice independent bike shops that seems to have a little bit of everything. I found a nice old English 3-speed there, which, due its need of some TLC, I got at a low price. I fixed it up, rode it around Lake Pepin last Spring on the 3-speed tour, and it was great. Local bike shops like this make the Twin Cities a great place to ride.


Jeff Chang said: February 5th, 2013 6:49 pm

I live in California and found Jonny's listing on craigslist for a discounted Handsome Speedy. I contacted Jonny to see if they shipped (they do) and swiftly made the payment over the phone. Jonny emailed me the tracking number and the bike arrived very quickly. So far, I'm loving the bike. Thanks!

I've been looking for the right bike for years, but you know it's more than just buying from a jerk in a shopping mall. When I stopped in to Jonny's on a whim, I wasn't expecting to drop a grand on a new bike. But Jonny and his shop is the real deal... small business, big persona, huge knowledge of bikes and the scene. I can't be happier with my new All City Space Horse. Coolest bike I've every ridden!


Dave Renfrow said: November 14th, 2012 8:49 pm

the Bike: well, a new bike is a joy and we all know the kid-out-of-school feeling. great fun. the service: Jonny did what he said he would, when he said, and made a friend doing it. My deal w/ jonny was long distance and he even made sure my LBS made some money on accessories when he could have taken that part of the sale. If you get a chance to do business w/ Jonny; do it. It will add to the joy of your new bike.


Randall Patterson said: September 16th, 2012 10:30 pm

Thank you, Johnny. I love my new Origin 8. I came in looking to fine a used bike to help me continue on my path to recovering from a recent heart attack and you where able find me a brand new bike that was under budget, fits well and is really fun to ride.


Naomi Wente said: September 3rd, 2012 10:26 amI saw a good selection of used bikes fixed up to top notch on Craigslist from Johnny Rock Bikes, so I stopped by on my way through the cities (I'm going to school up at the U of MN Morris). There was one bike that really caught my eye-- a "watermelon" flavored Diamond Back. Although it was on the outskirts of my price range (475$ + tax), it had had a bunch of updates on it (new watermelon pink Saddle, new Bar tape (an AWESOME PINK COLOR!), new brake cables & housings, new pedals--although they are not to die for-- and new 700c Black Alloy Double Wall Machine Side Wall 8,9,10 compat Wheelset, with new watermelon green tires that are of high quality and it was tuned & lubed and ready to go). Johhny was super friendly, showed me his best recommendations for my price range, and even agreed to take a look at a possible later trade-in. The mechanic was friendly and quick-- he wasn't happy with the front brake, so he took it apart and tuned the brake up before I took the bike home. All of their bikes over 250$ come with a 30 parts warranty. I am thinking that I might need to bring the bike back to get the back break tuned up-- it is sticking and not as responsive as it should be. But after going around town in Morris on it, I am simply in love. Thank you , thank you, thank you Johhny. Also, SO COOL WITH THE CHARITY WORK YOU ARE DOING. Thank you!


Matt Rohweder said: July 18th, 2012 1:26 pm

Jonny Rock Bikes is awesome! I picked up a used bike at a local pawn shop. Needless to say it needed a tune-up. Jonny fit me into his busy schedule immediately so I could ride the bike in the MS150. He was contacted and finished the bike the same day all at a great price. I will never shop at the local big bike shops again.


Ryan Stopera said: July 1st, 2012 10:01 pm

Jonny Rock Bikes has given me many donations for non profit projects in the Minneapolis community, and has helped individuals who cannot afford bicycles a chance to enjoy riding for transportation, exercise and fun. Thanks Jon, I'm so grateful for how you've helped those who are less fortunate.


Joe McCauley said: June 17th, 2012 9:45 amJohnny Rock Bikes is AWESOME! Thank you for helping my wife & I find the right bikes for us and a huge thank you for helping me w/ the flat. The bike is great and I have already put some miles on it. Your customer service is great and you will always be my first choice for anything bike related.


South View Cycling Club said: June 13th, 2012 12:31 pm

A BIG thank you, Johnny, for your time and generosity in donating bikes for our youth cycling club! We look forward to many days of fun and safe riding in June.


Sarah Hedstrand said: June 1st, 2012 9:05 pm

Wiped out on my commute home tonight and messed up my chain (and bruised my ego ...) Brought in my bike and they had it fixed and me gratefully on my way within 5 minutes. Very kind, friendly staff and right next to the trail! A customer was even touting this place as the best bike shop in the cities as I walked in! The customers are even friendly! Again, two huge thumbs up, highly recommended!

June 1st, 2012 8:29 pmDoes great work. Refurbished my 21-year-old bike....... it feels like new. Lovely stuff.


Dave Horn said: May 15th, 2012 5:07 pm

Jonny Rock Bikes is unbelievable! Great refurb bike selection and excellent customer service. I had an old Gitane road bike that was in rough shape and I wanted refurbished. The staff was very knowledgeable and told me exactly what needed to be done to get the bike in working order. It's been about a month since my bike was fixed up at Jonny Rock Bikes and it rides great! Thanks for all the excellent service and I will definitely be spread the work about the shop.


Spencer Green said: April 28th, 2012 6:38 amJonnyRock ROCKS!!! Thank you very much for the help in getting my old mtn. bike set-up to roll as a single speed the other night! Great service and great staff! I will definitely be back and will spread the word. Thanks JonnyRockBikes!


Jaimie said: April 27th, 2012 12:31 pmJust bought a road bike there the other day and had an awesome experience. The price was right and so was the quality. Would definitely come back again and highly recommend to others! Thanks Jonny!


Greg Kuyava said: April 2nd, 2012 11:07 amGreat to have you in new Hopkins location, perfect spot, great service, love the new wheels (great price) for my recycled Trek beauty! Treated my kids great!Aubrey said: March 10th, 2012 12:27 pmHad an excellent experience at the bike shop this week, I love my new bike and I've gotten tons of compliments on it already! Quality work, quality service, best of luck to you in your new location, Jonny! Thanks again!


Jeff Heiderscheit said: January 12th, 2012 10:08 amI just found this place and WOW! I will be spreading the word to my friends and co-workers. Jonny, you have a eye for quality and the "hip" factor that I just love in a bike. Jonny Rock Bikes is my new home for everything biking. Sort of feel like I stumbled onto a hidden jewel! Can't wait to select my road bike (I've been drooling over your bikes for months now.)


Ed Rossi said: September 12th, 2011 6:01 pm

Jonny ROCKS:) You did an outstanding job building my Mongoose off road bike. I sure to get many seasons of great off road biking with this bike. I'll surely see you again and will pass the word on your great bike shop.


Rachel said: August 22nd, 2011 9:15 pm

Hey Jonny - Mazel Tov on the opening of your new bike store! That news just rocks! I bought a blue Specialized Hard Rock mountain bike from you last fall. I outfitted it with studded tires and commuted to work by bike last winter. Thanks for selling me a great bike! We will probably visit your store sometime soon to buy bigger bikes for our 12 year old twins. Again, congrats on your successes! Keep up the good work!

Kilroy said: July 7th, 2011 10:48 pm

I admire how Jonnny was willing to strike out on his own. In doing so, he delivered excellence, pride and a quality product at a very good price while not forgetting charity. America needs a lot more people like this. Great job Jonny and thank you.


Greg said: July 1st, 2011 8:14 am

Jonny Rock Bikes, thank you for attending our cleanup day event in Becker! We share your passion to recycle and re-purpose bicycles! Pink link, House of Charity, salvaging & reusing parts, reselling bikes, etc. Very cool! We'll definitely ask you to attend our 2012 event! Thanks again! Greg


Kevin said: June 21st, 2011 5:43 pmI got a vintage Trek 520 from John and I couldn't be happier with it! It's in great condition and rides like a dream! He was so helpful and informative on what I needed to know about taking care of my new bike. I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know!


Mark said: June 13th, 2011 8:45 amHi John, The Specialized Crossroads you sold me today is AWESOME! I took it on a 25 mile spin out to Carver Park, and it is easily the nicest bike I've ever owned - thanks! I'll be spreading the word about Jonny Rock Bikes. See ya again,


MarkJim Paar said: June 11th, 2011 10:48 am

Love what your doing Johnny, awesome idea and obviously with a great cause!!Andrew Thul said: June 3rd, 2011 10:55 pmJohhny took great care of me on the tires and the kids seat for our family bikes. I am going to bring the kid in for a helmet next. Thanks Johnny for the great customer service.


Ryan Stopera said: May 9th, 2011 2:09 pm

I am a social worker at the House of Charity in Minneapolis. Jonny has just begun working with myself, and our non profit organization in helping individuals living in poverty obtain their own bicycles. Jonny has shown tremendous generosity in donating bikes, and giving profit of refurbished bikes to our agency. We have already begun fixing bikes for those in need, and it has been a huge success. Many participants have shared their gratitude in having affordable transportation, a means for exercise, and a way to have fun! Thank you Jonny, and thank you JonnyRock Bikes!


Carrie said: April 24th, 2011 12:44 amI got a vintage schwinn world tourist bike from John. It was in great condition and rides great! He was nice, helpful, and really easy to buy from! He told me various things to do for keeping my bike in good condition. I would definitely buy from him again! Carrie


KW said: April 9th, 2011 9:52 pm

In search of an inexpensive fixed gear, I found this business online. I went over to his place and he took time to explain bike parts to me, showed me a couple different bikes, and allowed me to test drive a bike he thought would be a good fit for me. I was very impressed with the level of customer service and knowledge Jon has. He didnt have the bike I was looking for, but sent me in the right direction. I will send anyone I know looking for a recycled bike to Jonnyrocksbikes.


Chris said: March 9th, 2011 12:14 pm

I purchased a bike from John for my kid's 6th birthday. He loves the bike and buying from John was easy. The bike was clean and well conditioned. Thanks for doing a great job John!


Jeana said: February 18th, 2011 9:43 am

Laura said: December 17th, 2010 10:09 am

Thank you so much for the free girls bike! My husband has been unemployed for 8 months. Your kindness and generosity is a true example of what this season is about. Now, our daughter will have a really nice present to open under the tree. Thank you! Happy Holidays~


Marc said: December 9th, 2010 9:06 pm

I bought that 1991 Bianchi Osprey that's on your front page at the moment. It's a sweet bike - lightweight lugged steel MTB and in great shape mechanically. I appreciated the adjustments you made to it before I bought it, swapping out the handlebars and so on. Good luck growing your business.


Ken Lowery said: December 6th, 2010 7:59 am

Thank you for your honesty, details, time and fair price on the bike we just bought from you for our daughter for Christmas. You took the time to talk everything through and answer all of my questions. It's nice to know we have an honest guy to bring it to for future tune-ups if needed also. Thanks Jonny!


Audrey Lenoch said: December 1st, 2010 6:39 pm

Hey there just wanted to thank you for the's great! I know I got a really good deal so I really appreciate it. The bike will be taken care of and will get some good use in a few triathalons next summer. Thanks again from a satisfied customer!
