Opened in 2009 - The roots of our business go beyond our opening. We began buying and selling used and vintage bikes out of a shared garage in Ann Arbor's Old West Side in 2006. As this story so often goes, we soon found ourselves with little room to move amid the mass of bikes we had procured. We began looking for a work space to continue our passion and our hobby, all the while laying the groundwork for a business. What began as a simple curiosity about the way a small business worked, unwittingly became the foundation for a real business. We found our current space one day on a bike ride, and as we peered in the window that afternoon, we saw a 1978 Schwinn sitting in the corner. We knew at that moment we had found our space and the rest is history, really. Neighbors began stopping by to ask if we fixed bikes. Within a week it became clear we needed to turn our hobby into at least a hobby business. And from that first day, word of mouth has kept us running. Thanks, Ann Arbor.
