Mythologically, a phoenix is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor.
With that note, we can look forward with anticipation to the Downtube Bicycle Works “regeneration” as Albany’s longest running, single-owner bicycle shop. After a devastating fire in March 2015, the Downtube Bicycle Works promptly reopened as a pop-up bike shop in the garage as “Albany’s Hottest Bike Shop.” Now, work on the new shop is moving forward by a well-respected, local firm, Bennett Contracting.
So save up your pennies and stand by for the grand reopening.
