Great Names for Bike Shops

In another thread, MRT2 mentioned a local bike shop named Zu Zu's Pedals (which is a terrific play on Zu Zu's petals from "It's a Wonderful Life"), so I decided to start this thread to gather great bike shop names from this august community. I'll start with these two:

Cycle Path Bicycles
Bespoke Cycling

Thanks for playing!

When I moved to California ~35 years ago, there was a bike store that frequently advertised "GIANT BIKE SALE" -- it took me a while to figure out GIANT was a brand of bikes, not the size of the sale.

Sir Velo could be a good one.. but only if you sell a certain Canadian brand.

Was a motorcycle shop here that closed this year called HEADMENS. Opened sometime in the early sixties. Name seemed to me fit the time frame.

Outspoken. It opened in an odd location, closed after a few years of operation.

Coasters bicycles . Yep, they sold cruiser bicycles, located near to the beach. Its been closed for a few years.

Three local bike shops. One named Outspokin' and another is Chain Reaction.

The third doesn't qualify for this thread but for completion it's Andy Jordan Bike Shop
