Community Impact Article:

South Austin bike shops connect with new cyclists during “no ordinary bike month”

Author, Olivia Aldridge, did a great job covering Bike Month in the time of Covid-19. Our owner, Brad Wimberly, was honored to give an interview to shed some light on how the pandemic is impacting the cycling community in Austin.
Olivia deftly interwove the paradoxes of the pandemic's impact. From the tough decision of closing our bike shop to the public despite being deemed an essential business, to the rising demand for sales & service while implementing safety measures that made both sales & service more challenging than ever. May 2020 was definitely "no ordinary bike month."

Department Store Bikes

From safety to sustainability, we have lots of good reasons not to service bikes sold at stores like Walmart & Academy.
