Old Shop: Good Bye Old Friend

Kinda bittersweet to say the least. A lot of blood sweat and tears went into this space...

New Shop: Getting settled in!

We have the new location up and running for a full week now. Starting to get settled in a little bit. Still a lot of work to do but it is really starting to look like a bike shop! We are all very excited about it, and I am very proud of our crew for pulling it together the way they have.
Come on down and check it out, the new address again is 756 S. 4th St. Just a little further south on 4th St between Fitzwater and Catharine streets.
See you soon.

New Shop: Almost Ready!

So we are almost ready to roll into the new space for good! Another long weekend, and then we move in all of the essentials. Tools, phones, computers...

So this is our last Saturday open in the old shop and boutique. I have very mixed feelings about this of course. I have spent so many hours in that first shop space, many of them it was just me and my dog Buda. The time has come for us to take a big step forward, and the new space is amazing. So I am also very excited to get everything up and running.

Change is inevitable, growth is intentional.

So come bid the old shop and the boutique a fond farewell today. As of Monday We will be closed temporarily while we make the final transition. The plan is to be up and running again in the new space by next weekend. Probably Thursday at the earliest, Saturday at the absolute latest. Check our progress here throughout the week.

Thank you all so much for your support, I can't wait to show you around the new and improved Bicycle Revolutions.

New Shop: More Progress!

I did promise updates, we are making progress I swear. So much to do, so little time...

We had our first official moving day. Our Superstar moving crew consisting of our closest friends/staff got some serious work done yesterday despite the rainy conditions. We moved the complete contents of the boutique basement, most of the shop basement and some of the shop backstock. It was twice as much as I had expected to get done and we did it in half the time. GO TEAM!

Very special recognition goes to the Mini Munchkin Movers, these ladies rock!

Inside, the workbenches are nearly finished. The big bench needs some shelves and a little trim and she is ready to go.

The other bench/shelves under the loft are all done. Ready to install the vise and grinder.

And the paint is mostly done (all of the big stuff anyway)

We will still be functioning in the Old Shop and Boutique all week this week. Next week we will be starting the official transition into the new space, there will be some down time as we get sorted out. So please bear with us, when it is all done it is going to be AWESOME!
