The thread below started last summer, after a CL ad was posted, requesting help for a bike museum:
The site is the old Canadian Tire in New West, behind the Safeway near 8th & McBride.
I was driving by yesterday, and noticed a bike in the window, where the old service bay used to be.
I turned around, drive into the parking lot, and took a closer look...stayed in my vehicle. Upon peaking in the window, during a drive-by, I saw about 20 bikes in there.
Anyone know anything about this?
Walked in and spoke to them.....they plan to open in about 2 weeks, and will sell used bikes, service them, and sell new gear.
Not sure what brands of gear they had, didn't really walk in to the showroom part, but saw a fair bit on racks.
I'm guessing not the typical brand name stuff, probably off-shore (what isn't) names, saw helmets, jackets & pants.
Here are a couple pics from the outside. Being a New West resident, I like the idea of a place to close to home, time will tell.
The bikes are in the old showroom/sales floor portion of the store, and the gear is in the service areas, through the bay doors.
