I've been to that bike shop several times for tubes and other accessories. Very nice place. Never had any repairs done there or bought a bike. I've been a loyal customer at County Cycles on McLean Avenue for purchases and repairs. The reason I may chose to go to Arrow over County (they are are very close to each other) is the chance to stop at the Sun Life vegan lunch counter two doors down (also mentioned in the article). It is the best Jamaican vegan food on White Plains Road since Everything Natural closed. Speaking as a Bronx vegetarian -- thank you to my Rastafarian neighbors -- without you the Bronx would be a much less vegetarian-friendly borough.

I thought that bike shop had closed
I guess it was I who moved away
there used to be a lovely Schwinn women's supreme in the window I would salivate over when in High School
