Big Wheel USA doesn't kid around when it comes to bikes. Its storefront showcases more than 300, each from top brands such as CamelBak and Crankbrothers. Far from limited to adult-sized bikes, Big Wheel USA stocks plenty other wheeled rides, including Trikkes, exercise bikes, and skateboards.
Don't fret if nothing in the store strikes your fancy—Big Wheel's certified mechanics can customize your very own bike, complete with as many training wheels as it takes to make you feel safe. The technicians also conduct bike fittings and repair malfunctioning parts. Big Wheel also sells plenty of bike-related shoes and apparel, and keeps patrons abreast of the latest local rides and events.

Opened February 10, Vero's by the Bay appeases appetites of all types with an upscale menu of Italian-style seafood. Eggplant rollatini with ricotta and parmesan cheeses coronate meals with friends ($8.95), and the prosciutto e bufala takes its flavor from buffalo mozzarella and cured 18-month-old prosciutto that, unlike most toddler-aged meats, won't cry when you leave the room ($14.95). The cesare salad ($7.50) and mahi mahi sandwich/wrap ($9.50) drench taste buds in waves of flavor. Entree-minded epicureans delight in the ravioli d'aragosta, lobster ravioli slathered in creamy butter sage and shrimp ($22), and parago in crosta di banana—banana-crusted snapper ($23)—swim through white-wine sauces before satiating stomachs with the tropical essence of an edible beach ball. Patrons can savor dishes in Vero's by the Bay's dining room or fill up under oversized cocktail umbrellas on the sun-soaked dinner patio.

At each of Bike Tech's three locations, a staff of bike enthusiasts roams the floor, offering patrons recommendations for new two-wheeled transports and advice for repairs and upgrades on presently owned models.

The team also offers services ranging from full custom builds down to basic washes, necessary when short on time or all of the local elephant trunks are out of order.
