Spring Update

We rang in the New Year jumping through hoops with the City, but since then have been tackling the new building with hopes to move in sometime this Spring! We are still currently operating at our original location on Westcott Street. With the glimpses of great weather we’ve been having, we are definitely building up our workorder queue. Rainy days (like right now) are a great time to drop your bike off for repair, or call the shop to set up an appointment.

Here’s a snippet of what’s been going on at our future home, 790 Canal Street:

No solid move in date yet, but we will keep you posted. SOON! Things will be moving fast once we get to start building out the interior.
