Tennessee Valley Bicycles (moving)

Your friendly downtown bike shop Tennessee Valley Bicycles at 214 W. Magnolia is moving! Don't worry. They're only scooting over a unit or two to a bigger space. If you haven't had the chance to stop by and check the place out, go on down and meet Scott Smith. Basically he's the man in charge and will take care of your bike needs. If you don't know where it is, remember Marie's Olde Towne Tavern? Same block.

The new digs.




I stopped by last Friday to buy a lock because my old bike was stolen. That's a whole other story. Scott mentioned that they are moving and handed me a flier for what looks to be a fun weekend of bikes and skinned knees. Just kidding.

Their Grand Opening party takes place May 1-3. Here's the rundown.

May 1 : Music, art and drinks. It says 5pm to whenever. Bar tips go to AMBC-SORBA. Musical guests include Steve Greene, I Need Sleep, and Three Man Band. Artists include Sarah Shebaro and Eric Lee.

May 2 : Bicycle photo scavenger hunt: 2-6pm, meet at TVB. Woohoo!

May 3 : Kona bike demo at Haw Ridge: 10am, meet in the parking lot.

Or you could just read the flier at the top of the post.

The new space is bigger and will have more bikes, more gear and a big garage door that opens the front of the store to the street. After driving by Sunday I noticed that the old place had already been cleaned out and the new one was in the process of being stocked. Bicycles for all ya'll!

This is the old space.

A bicycle scavenger hunt??? That sounds like so much fun. I guess I'm really a 10 year old at heart.

these guys are great- i'm glad their business is doing so well. they sell new bikes of course, but what i love is that they refurbish old bikes to sell. a ton of old bikes have gotten a new lease on life because of tvb- an awesome example of green reuse.

do they buy back old bikes?

TVB really is awesome. I got a great bike there, and they even gave me a little trade-in value on my embarrassingly lame purple Wal-mart bike.

Congratulations guys, can't wait to see the new space.

Went in there once. Bought a tube repair kit. Best of luck in the new space, TVB.

(Also, I just got the best Word Verification ever: doginsin. Maybe the next one will be canineinconfession.)
