Folding bike shops in Pasadena - SoCal?
 
I'm flying down to LA tomorrow and will be visiting some friends in Pasadena. Are there any folding bike shops in that area or any particularly cool regular bike shops worth a visit?

You should post this same question in the SoCal Regional Subforum. By far the most active regional forum on this site.

Good Luck.

For the Eastside of Los Angeles, I recommend:

Temple City Bike Shop
9628 Las Tunas Dr
Temple City, CA 91780
(I bought my Piccolo there).

Also, if you are not limited just to the Pasadena area, check out:

Safety Cycle Shop
1014 N Western Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90029

There were many types of bikes there including Dahons like the Curve.

I sometimes post same or similar questions on different forums. That way I am assured that my replies are met by the most people.

If you're still around Pasadena, InCycle, Performance Bicycle Shop, Velo Pasadena, and Pasadena Cyclery all carry a very limited inventory of Dahon models. They may carry the standard Curve, Speed D7, Mariner, and Ciao, but I've also seen the limited-edition Hon Solo at Incycle.

But again, there are hardly any in-store models to actually check out. Maybe only 1 or 2 in stock at each shop.

Good luck!

BTW, if you had time you could check out Electric Cyclery/Bike Fold in Laguna Beach. They specialize in electric and folding bikes. While they don't have a huge showroom, they probably have more folding bikes than all of the Pasadena shops combined. Plus, they sell more brands than just Dahons.
