We are a full-service bicycle shop offering new and consignment bicycles along with expert repairs.  We also take coffee very seriously and are proud to offer coffee roasted by one of the area's finest roasters -

Carabello Coffee (who actually started out roasting coffee

in our shop in the fall of 2011)!


Our shop was chosen as the "Best Independent Coffeehouse" by the readers of NKY Magazine in 2012, and "Best Bicycle Shop"

in 2013 and 2014. 


  Stop in for a Nutella Mocha or a "Dirty Hippy", while browsing our book selection or enjoying our Free Wi-Fi.   Be sure to grab a scone or

one of our wholesome Almond Butter Bars

(which will come in handy on your next bicycle ride)!
