Shop visit: The Hub Bicycle Co-op

On my whirlwind visit to the Westbank of MPLS, two weeks back, I also had the delight of dropping into the Hub's Westbank store for some employee hijinks. 


The Hub has three locations now, and is to my knowledge, the only cooperative worker owned bike shop in the city. They've made their reputation on having some of the best mechanics around, and having a very friendly sales staff who are all steeped in bike weirdness. 

On this lovely day, I found myself down at their Westbank location to tell the employees about the joys of All-City bikes.

Check out some shots from the visit.

What we ride:  Nick’s Space Horse

I hesitated posting pictures of my personal Space Horse build as it felt a little “braggy” to me but I really want to give you all a glimpse into where my brain is at. Buckle up and hold on. So truth be told I was never a big fan of the Space Horse. My only experience being the annual SaddleDrive industry event where I’d grab one and take it for a quick lap around the lower parking lot and back up the hill. The bikes are set up “to fit everyone” so the Space Horse always felt way too tall and uninspiring. Meh. In August of last year my opinion drastically changed.
