I seriously hope that the driver charged with the DUI at least purchases a bike from that store to get around considering his license has gone the way of the dodo. xD

Still would have been worse if the vehicle was an Amazon delivery vehicle.

Because, you know, online sales are already hitting bike shops hard.

No one's blamed the bike shop yet for being in the wrong place?
