Spinning off from the Favorite Bike Shop thread, I noticed a lot of people recalling their favorite shops of old time.
I remember Criterium in Reseda as the place that actually stocked a road bike with 24" wheels so my 10 year old brother could start riding with the rest of the family. He road that thing in the Solvang Prelude before growing into a full size bike. I also remember Bikesport in Canoga Park sponsoring my race team, Warner Velo. The owner was very nice, almost to a fault. It was a curse and a blessing that his manager was more of a hardcore business lady.
So, what shops do you miss?
