It should have some wheels and some gears and stuff...

Vintage fixed-gear bicycle store in Los Angeles

I think I was in the Silverlake area, but it could have been Los Feliz or Echo Park (I had been exploring LA all that day with a free TAP Card and wasn't 100% oriented). Does anyone know what store this might have been, or where I could find a similar store in the LA area? [more inside]

Help me find MY bike

Help me find my perfect bike. I have not owned a bike since I was a child so I am having a hard time picking one now. In fact, I went to three different local bike shops and was given 2-3 different options at each shop so I am even more confused now than I was when I started looking. Specifications and riding goals inside. [more inside]
