Bike Works Warehouse Sale set for January 30

Bike Works, the South Seattle bike education non-profit, is again cleaning out its attic and its warehouse. In the tradition of old world bicycle shops, the Bike Works shop has been holding on to 27-inch rims, high-flange hubs, and American and English-made cruiser bikes, just waiting for this stuff to come back in style. So Bike Works mechanics are digging these gems out of storage, dusting them off a bit, and having a big warehouse sale.

We'll hold the sale Sunday, January 30, 2011 from 11am to 4pm at Bike Works shop and warehouse: 3709 S Ferdinand St. Call 725-9408 with questions.
