    It's a sad day for the Edmonton bike community

    Found out not long ago that one of the best bike shops in Edmonton burnt to the ground today. Anyhow here is an article with the details if your interested. I'm sure this doesn't effect anyone here really but just wanted to share. The guys that owned the shop were also such awesome guys. I really hope they will be able to open up again sometime soon.

    Damn...I only work down the street from there and stop by pretty regularly.

    I didn't see any of the smoke but that southerly that blew me home probably kept it north of us.

    It was a great shop and I expect that it will once again be a great shop and the most imporant thing is that no-one was injured or killed as all the other stuff can eb replaced.

    Good things happen to good people... Sounds like the owners are good people. I am sure they will get the shop back up and rolling!

    But wouldn't that mean their shop wouldn't have burnt down?

    Woah, I didn't realize how big the shop was , that sucks even more! (So some may think its an average sized shop, not by Nova Scotia standards).
