As a youth inseparable from his BMX bike, Scott Dunwoody dreamed of opening his own bike shop. Later, after honing his mechanic skills on his frat brothers’ bikes and later at local bike centers, Dunwoody opened DG Bicycles in 2009, the result of his longtime passion and childhood dream coming together.
Rather than forcing riders and bicycle renters to approach the shop from the open road with its blindfolded drivers, the shop nestles next to the Monon Bike Trail, which provides a scenic path for cyclists and other outdoorsmen to enjoy. The shop's wares fit many cyclists' passions, and Dunwoody showcases bikes and frames from brands such as Rocky Mountain Bicycles and 2Hip Bikes, and styles ranging from mountain to commuter. With a full line of gear, parts, and accessories, the shop's stock complements the diverse frame styles that come in, which are tended to by experienced bike mechanics who can fix two-wheelers or advise prospective buyers on a cycle that meets their needs. The crew supplies a fleet of rental adult, child, and tandem cycles for short-term jaunts, and also stocks inline skates and parts.:m]]
