Opening Soon! Switching Gears Cyclery

There’s a new bike shop coming to the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. It’s called Switching Gears Cyclery. If you’ve been on any of the 75208 or BFOC rides, you might have met local bike enthusiasts Colin Clark or Andee Pittman. Colin and Andee have decided to join the ranks of other great Dallas bike shops like Oak Cliff Bicycle Company and Transit Bikes and offer a more personalized bike shopping experience.

Their shop will be located in between Fallout Lounge & Amsterdam Bar in Expo Park across the street from Fair Park (just off the DART Green Line). To find out more about Switching Gears Cyclery and what they will be offering, jump over to their Facebook page and Like them. We can’t wait to visit the shop as soon as they are open.

Also, please remember to support your neighborhood bike shops and buy local. You might be able to save a few bucks online, but it will be at the cost of our city’s bike culture. As with all the DFW bike shops, we wish Switching Gears Cycley great success.
