Of the original offerings, I like The Bike Pit for some reason.


Considering the age of the thread, one more opinion isn't going to matter.

I'm kinda partial to:

Ye
Olde
Bicycle
Shoppe



But the proprietor must be adorned with a handlebar moustache.

I always thought that Walla Walla, Washington would be the perfect place for a shop named Hubba Hubba Hub Company.

Also, I used to work at Two Wheel Travel, now out of business. It did have the owner's name when I started but with a planned move to a new location the name change was announced. I was surprised because that had been the title of a popular '70s book on bike travel.

I'm thinking you should incorporate the ZOOM part of your user name into the name.

"We Be Bikes", the trick is to use incorrect grammar correctly.
