Unlike the fine example of Italian Neorealism that is The Bicycle Thief
, the Ordinary Bike Shop knows exactly where its bicycles are at all times. On most days, you'll find Fuji road bikes; Diamondback mountain, trail and touring bikes; and Electra cruisers sparkling under the Arizona sun in Ordinary's parking lot, while the retail space within offers an extensive and well-stocked selection of accessories. As if that's not enough, readers also love the excellent parts department, large service area (ride right up), friendly staff and totally extra-ordinary hours. While most bike shops open sometime between 10 a.m. and noon, Ordinary sets up shop at 9 a.m. Mondays through Fridays (and stays open until 7 p.m.) and 8 a.m. Saturdays (until 5 p.m.).
