Or working with the good people at brands like Linus, Surly, Specialized, Riese & Muller, Tern and Brompton to stock and market all their goodies. Or just enjoying being part of a small, bike-obsessed team, whistling while we work in our cozy, bright store, fuelled by free espresso and generous discounts that enable us to build our own dream cycle projects.
