    You guys gonna start flippin pants or shorts any time soon? I been riding in basketball shorts and high socks and it's cool, but the weather is cold now.

    If not, could you or anyone drop a line on where to get some good ones? Preferably domestically made, eco-friendly, small business, yaddayaddayadda...

    Congrats on the storefront Scrod!

    I know this probably won't be the case, but will your prices generally stay the same low prices we love, or will they rise to compensate the additional overhead needed to run the shop?

    I was hoping just the opposite! storefront gives you more brands and a way to mark stuff up (in store) that doesn't have to compete with online prices. plus you get bike labor $ from joe schmoe who needs a saddle installed for $10, well that's how me, someone with no experience whatsover imagines it

    I am hoping this will open up things like "free shipping on orders over ___" though

    Because there isn't a huge fixed "scene" around here and the fact that our shop is a little out of the way from downtown, I'm not anticipating a ton of walk in traffic. Instead, we'll be using the shop as a means to run the site from and do some repairs/builds/whatever.

    Our prices have always been low and will stay that way.

    Looks like a nice cozy place. Did you kill the spiders with fire?

    No way, Jose. I made Angie throw it in the dumpster.

    The space is about 580 square feet with an additional storage room that you need to access from outside. I think it will be perfect.

    Looks great, love the stone wall and wooden supports. Place will have some nice character once you fill it out with goods

    Most every shop around here are generic strip mall storefronts =/

    whoa I love the look. there's a shop here like that with a real similar vibe/layout and it's really great looking now that it's all cleaned up (it's just run by morons unfortunately)

    is your store front going to be called retro-gression too?

    That's precisely what we didn't want. I hate walking into a bike shop that looks like it fell out of an Ikea catalog.

    Yes sir. We'll be getting in there to paint, do a little building out and have some plumbing work done right after the holidays so hopefully it won't take too long to get up and running.

    That's really cool! Who's going to man the fort once it gets up and running? And are you going to offer repairs too?

    The shop will be run mostly Angie and myself, with some help from a few friends - like it is now. We're not going to be full-service at the beginning because it will be a lot to handle with everything else going on but that will most likely change by spring.

    Wow grats Scrod, the place looks really cool. I can't wait to see how it looks when you guys are done with it. It's just a shame that you're on the opposite coast and I will probably never have an excuse to visit.

    Not sure. Both of our Knog distributors have been out of them for some time. We may end up ordering a bunch directly from Knog once we get settled in our new home.
