Best Bike Shop

Ordinary Bike Shop

Nine years after arriving on Fourth Avenue as a used, low-end bike seller, this small and sometimes cramped shop has one thing today that stands out: a staff that cares and loves bikes. Today, it carries a variety of new bicycles and accessories, but happily, you won't see the gaily clad, polyester-uniformed speed-racer clown brigade pretentiously posing here. That's because this shop--and the crew that expertly troubleshoots and repairs bikes--is all about the love of bar-end shifters, eight-speed cassettes, high-end derailleurs and cantilever brakes, without kissing-up to the two-wheel celebrity class. On the other hand, for us clowns ready to perform under the Tucson big top, they do carry unicycles!
