Sportique clothes beach bods in designer swimsuits, sandals, and other sun-friendly fashions during the bright daylight of spring and summer. Suits from fashionistas including Betsey Johnson, Nanette Lepore, and Trina Turk enrobe frames in designer duds ($125–$225), aided in their quest by knowledgeable staffers fluent in the language of lycra. A Nanette Lepore blue-and-white floral hipster bikini combines modern sensibilities with a slightly vintage cut, and a Juicy Couture vibrant blue maillot pairs ruching and side bows with a bold hue that could make a splash in the smallest of kiddie pools. Swimmers protect newly revealed skin from the sun with Kiss My Face natural sunscreen ($18+), shade faces with a San Diego Hat Co. sunhat ($25+), or ensure all-over protection by staying indoors and doing laps in the bathtub. Life Is Good T-shirts ($25+) make excellent cover-ups or barbecue uniforms, and Rainbow and Volatile sandals shield sensitive toes from hot sand and pesky no-shoes, no-service rules. During the winter season, Sportique sells skiwear from brands such as Patagonia and The North Face ($99–$399), equipping customers for winter sports activities or a summer expedition to the inside of a snow-cone maker.
Indian Cycle’s bicycle-repair artists funnel more than 40 years of training and experience into tuning up and adjusting needy cycles. The premium bike tune-up features a nonhydraulic brake adjustment that tightens brakes, centers the wheel, and lightly lubricates pivots. Gear adjustments keep vitals in check, and a bearing adjustment reduces friction and significantly increases the chances of bearing-related compliments. Technicians then true crooked wheels, tighten components, and inspect tires for leaks and illegally stowed cargo. For a finishing touch, cycle doctors perform an external lubrication and take two-wheeled transports out for a test-ride and a waffle cone.
Inside Nevada Bob's, everything is dedicated to golf.

The store also features a repair facility, an indoor golf simulator, and private lessons with an accredited golf pro.
For the well-trained bicycle blacksmiths at The Bike Rack, nearly all bike makes and models fall into their realm of tuning expertise. During the premium tune-up, dual-wheeled people movers are treated to brake, bearing, and gear adjustments along with minor wheel truing, external lubrication, component tightening, and a thrilling test ride. Tires are also inspected to ensure they are properly filled with air and not unpopped kettle-corn kernels.
