Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Not really the cat's ass for road parts, but they know their stuff, and carry good stuff, and good people, I get quick service no matter how big their rush is. My other bike shop is about 15 miles down a ways, a place called Spin Inc. Very cool people, great, great shop that carries Soma, Specialized and I think they might even have BMC. Easily $200,000 in the show room.

It's history, dude...

Martin Swiss Cycles grew out of Martin's Swiss Repair Shop, founded in 1937. Martin's specialized in small, fussy mechanical doohickeys and pretty soon established itself as one of the premier locksmiths in the city. At one time, it was actually pretty common for locksmiths and small, fussy mechanical doohickey repair shops to sell bikes, so the bike shop sort of grew alongside the locksmith over the last seventy years. Today, the bike shop occupies about 3/4 of the space, but the locksmith is still there. The Mr. T poster is, I think, a poster for Medeco Locks: "I pity da foo who tries to pick a Medeco lock."

One of the neat things about M. Swiss is that, thanks to its heritage, there is at least one mechanic on staff who is quite comfortable with the metal lathe and drill press. Don't have the part? He'll make one.
