If you like your old bike and it still fits, it’s worth fixing; if you don’t and it doesn’t, get a new one. That’s the kind of practical advice you’ll get at this full-service shop. Since 1978, goofball owner Jeff Curwood has dressed up in a bee costume for low-tech commercials promising shoppers won’t get stung, and he has generations of return customers who consider themselves part of the hive. Curwood’s team loves bikes from beach cruisers to Premium BMX to Electra electrics and Detroit build-your-own models. Plus they’ve donated bikes for raffles supporting just about every school and church near them. And that’s what all the buzz is about.
