In typical upbeat Downtube Bicycle Works fashion, this new slogan appeared on the gutted shop in early May after the earlier disastrous fire.
The Downtube now has a “full service, pop up” shop in the adjacent motor vehicle bay. If you stop in, you’ll find the same friendly service from a group who has been through hellish times as they move forward to a new and better Downtube Bicycle Works.
Just now, the gutting is complete and work is underway on the upstairs apartments (the source of the fire) and the shop.
The owner provided the following statement:
Robert, Eric, Adam, and all the Downtubers appreciate everyone’s concern and patience as we continue to recover and rebuild after the fire. We are now offering full bicycle repair service out of our garage next door to the store, Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, 12 noon – 6 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We also have the primary essential parts and accessories for immediate sale, and we are special ordering everything bicycle, often with 1-2 day delivery. The renovated store will reopen later this season with new, exciting features. Please stop by and say hello in the meantime.
Stand by for a grand reopening!
