Here’s the Dirt: Bicycle shop sets move south

It’s official: Downtown Spokane bicycle shop Two Wheel Transit Bicycles is moving in November to a new retail store in the South Perry Street district.

The move from 1405 W. First Ave. to about 5,000 square feet at 817 S. Perry, in the northern portion of the HiCo Market building, has been anticipated for months.

Owners Geoff Forshag and Bruce Abbots are closing the current store on Nov. 9 and opening the new store Nov. 13.

Forshag said the move will allow the store to provide more usable space and more customer amenities. “We are very excited about moving the bicycle shop to this vibrant area and continuing to improve customer experience,” he said in a release.

New features include a kids’ bike area, a bike fitting studio, a larger mechanics shop and more retail display space.

Brokers with NAI Black helped arrange the relocation.
