My local bike shop, Spokes Etc.’s Belle View location, is the only shop within six miles of my home. I use it mostly for repairs and purchases of bike stuff. It’s pretty darn good. A few weeks ago, fire broke out in the Belle View shopping center and a number of businesses had to close, including Spokes. I had thought that the bike shop had suffered only smoke damage but that turns out not to be the case. Along with burning off the roof, the fire warped a structural I beam. Once the shopping center’s owners get the place structurally sound and covered, the Spokes people can go about building out the store. Although the I beam should be installed soon, the rest of the structural work will take a few months.
