No shop, however, can even come close to my favorite shop (and one of my favorite places, overall) than Hermosa's own Old Bike Shop, which has been in Hermosa since 1987, and was a two minute walk from me for almost two years. It's run by one of the kindest, most beautiful souls I've ever met.

Mohammad is one of the main sources of my inspiration. No matter what I'd bring to his shop, or what I was looking for, he and his staff (who are all amazing and wonderful people!) would go to great lengths to help me out. From the Takhions, to the Nishiki Ultimate, to when I decided I wanted a Trek District Carbon - nothing was too crazy. Not to mention, Mohammad was one of the first to test ride the Takhion when we put some wheels on it to test it out! And that beautiful District Carbon that I ride more than any other bike? Lovingly built at The Old Bike Shop.
|Every Saturday I'd be here.|
I love you guys!
