Keep The Hub Alive!
For those who don’t already know, the Hub Bike Shop is soon to be displaced by a new apartment development on our block. The Hub will need to close and ideally relocate by October of 2018. Spectrum Development Solutions from Seattle has generously invited us back into their fold upon completion of the building that is being built. Unfortunately, the offered space is limited to 500 square feet which is not enough to operate at our full capacity, not to mention that the development is projected to be completed in mid-2020.
“So, what’s the plan?”
In the meantime, the search is on and we sure could use some community eyes and ears on the mission with us! This is a great opportunity for us to aspire to a future community bike shop with even more potential. If you know of locations that would be a good fit, please contact us and let us know. We have spent the last 16+ years building a space to engage our community in a positive and productive way. It’s been a lot of work, at times seemingly endless, but always worth the effort. As long as we can move ourselves into action we will strive to continue to serve the town which has fed our spirit so fully and sincerely.
“How can I help?”
We will be hosting several events throughout this season to enjoy our space to its fullest, with the goal of raising awareness and resources to help preserve this component of our creative cycling community. Please follow us on Facebook and sign up for our email newsletter to keep informed about these events and related volunteer opportunities.
Other ways to help The Hub:
Hire us to Build You a Custom Bike
Maybe you have a dream bike in mind that you’ve been putting off assembling yourself. Maybe you’re not sure what you want, and would like a 1-on-1 consultation to determine what type of bike would suit your needs, height, and preferred riding posture best. From racers to rippers to cruisers, used frame or custom order, one of our bicycle technicians can bring your next favorite ride to life! Come on by noon-to-six, Wednesday through Saturday, with cash or check and we can get started! (Custom builds range from $350-$650 for most used frames)
Come Buy Parts
Even if we have a new location locked in by October, there will likely be a transition period during which the Hub is closed. Come stock up on the parts you need while the getting’s good!
