Trinity Bicycles, Permanent (Soft) Opening

I stopped by Trinity Bicycles at 207 South Main Street this afternoon. The new shop just south of downtown (and the T&P commuter parking lot, which is no coincidence) has had a couple of sneak peeks and soft openings already. But this week they got their CO and they are officially open for business, even though the shop is not fully outfitted. From the street you can see a couple of signs in the windows promising a bike shop

The service counter was just built last night

I met Brian and Bernie

They recognized me a Doohickie based on my Schwinn Cutter ;-)

The have some stock of Kona and Surly bikes

Here's a view from the service area looking toward the front of the shop

As you can see, it ain't much... yet. They pretty much intend to keep the minimalist design I think, without a rush to fill the store. If they need something they'll get it, but I think first and foremost they want to establish the bike shop. Bernie and Brian are very personable folks. According to the Trinity Bicycles website, their hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Stop on by and welcome them to the neighborhood! I wish them well.

Did they explain their parking plan? There doesn't look like much out front to lock up to? Being commuter- oriented, is there, instead, dare I say it, official indoor parking?

The obvious thing is to bring the bike in for now. I think some kind of secure bike parking/storage is in the works based on what I've heard around, but I didn't ask while I was there.

Beautiful in its austerity.
