I like Paradise Garage in Columbus

One quick highlight of my visit to Columbus was a stop at Paradise Garage, a very nice, personal, quirky bike shop in the Short North district.

When I say "quirky" of course what I mean is:
  • Nothing by Trek or Specialized as far as the eye can see
  • Lots of steel, wool, tweed, and leather
  • Nifty stuff I've never seen before
  • My bushy holiday beard feels right at home
I was particularly interested in the bikes by All City Cycles, which were new to me. Very nice lugged steel goodness with an urban flavor (plus some sweet single-speed cross bikes!). Also lots of nice Surleys with giant fatties.

Plus, when I checked in on Foursquare, I got a $10 to spend there from American Express from a small business promo they're doing! (Of course, I didn't have time to do it then, hopefully I will before we leave Columbus!)
