    My Favorite New Bike Shop.

    Black Sheep Cycles in Charlotte, NC.

    With 200 miles separating this Fixed-Gear heaven from my home, I had to wait….and I hate waiting. After four months, and the alignment of their shop hours and my traveling plans through Charlotte I was able to ‘kick some tires’.

    First thing you notice is the outdoor fenced dog park. Woody started pissing all over the lot with excitement.

    Next thing I noticed were two Vanilla bicycles on the sales-floor. Okay…..yes I drooled. Matt assisted and said they were the owner’s and not for sale. That was good news, I didn’t need to take out a mortgage for another bike.

    Matt then proceed to show me around the sales floor. This place was more like a museum of bikes that you dream about, ANT’s, Desalvo’s, Vanilla’s and limited edition Campy track gear.

    Our son Benjamin, quickly grabbed a train car with the Thomas the Tank railroad for children.

    Upon walking to the front of the shop, bottom lip still dragging the ground, I find the lounge area with sofas and one dog per sofa. God I love this place.

    The other unique feature was the shower & lockers in the restroom for commuters use. If I were to own or work in a shop this would be the blue-print of design.

    Every bicycle in the shop was unique. Most of them being fixed-gear or single-speed or commuter based.

    I bought a cool T-shirt and they threw some swag my way.

    My Favorite New Bike Shop.
