I checked out Mr. Armstrong's new bike shop during lunch today. No sign of any of the Olsen twins, very disappointing. Lots of Trek bikes, big surprise there, but they also carried Seven Cycles, Merckx, De Sola, as well. And they had a bunch of fixed gear and commuter bikes, from Swobo and Masi amongst others. Clothing -- Swobo, Rapha, were represented. They have a coffee bar there as well, with the workstands in the center, not much room to wrench. I forget to check out the showers, but it was a pretty nice store overall, a bit more competition for BSS is a good thing -- I noticed a few BSS employees had defected to the shop.
