11/01/21 - We are moving towards our winter hours. The shop will now close at 8:30 on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. But with that, we are now able to expand our parts sales, adding in 27" tires and used innertubes (tested of course for any leaks) of most common sizes.

Bikes are still for sale ONLY during evening hours, and we are now selling parts (with restrictions, see below) during both evening and afternoon hours. Only two people at a time (single or a couple) will be allowed into the shop for bike sales. Masks indoors are mandatory. You can also donate bikes and parts to us any time we are open, evenings or afternoons.

Currently we are not selling:forks, frames, fenders, and bags/panniers, plus due to industry shortages we cannot offer any new items we've sold previously such as tubes, cables, housings, brake pads, and bearings.

4/01/21 - We have moved!

We are now at 445 Catherine St., Unit 1. Details on our Location/Hours page.
