Best Bike Shop: 20/20 Cycles

20/20 Cycles over in the Central District is an adorable shop full of exceedingly helpful employees. It’s also exceedingly badass. Shop owner Alex Kostelnik wasn’t content just selling bikes, so he decided to make his own damn bike. Kostelnik designed the “Sealth,” named after the Washington State Ferry of the same name (which is named after Chief Seattle), to be “perfectly equipped for both your daily commute and long-distance rides throughout the Pacific Northwest.” It’s gorgeous and sleek, mixing the look of cute vintage bikes with the functionality of a serious cycle. When 20/20 Cycles isn’t busy churning out its own flagship rides, it also hosts shows. At night, it’s been known to transform into a cozy little DIY venue that’s hosted performances from La Luz to Mount Eerie as part of a loose partnership with Hollow Earth Radio, which sits next door. If you like bikes, bands, and badassery, 20/20 Cycles is pretty much your one-stop shop.
