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.

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.
