The hardest part of owning a bike shop, in this modern economy, is probably writing the “About the Shop” section of the website. Seriously, it’s a ridiculous task. We are supposed to brag about the shop, without sounding conceited. Tell you about how we are the best in town, hopefully in a way that doesn’t make our friends in all the other shops in town angry. Tell you all about what we do, which is essentially what every bike shop does, sell bike parts and accessories and perform repairs, but it’s really exciting when we do it!
Periodically we get a phone call from someone who just had their bike repaired, and they are feeling great after a ride and want to let us know that their bike has never worked better. Or someone who just bought a bike from us drops by to share a beer and tell us all about the ride they just went on and how much they love their new bike. And every day we have people coming by just to hang out, see who they bump into, and just enjoy the atmosphere of our shop. Thats why we do this, and that’s what Bikeworks ABQ is about.
