Bikes N’ Roses
This little bike shop on Sawyer has the salt to merit the title. After you hauled in a Murray with a flat recently, they repaired the tire for a very reasonable $12. After the tire went flat a second, third, fourth, fifth and then finally a sixth time in short succession, they never wavered in doubling down on fixing it, never charging a single penny extra. That sort of dedication to getting it right is coupled with the not-for-profit shop’s mission to teach bike repair skills to underprivileged kids, so not only will the shop make sure to take care of you right, but that you’ll be helping out your community at the same time.
