From Our Editors
Inside a bright, serenely organized shop, long rows of BMX bikes salute riders with glossy frames and titled handlebars capped with colorful grips. Graffiti-style boards pepper the walls with skulls, sharks, and kaleidoscopic scripts, and marine adventuring beckons in the form of stand-up paddleboards and specialty surfboards. A staff of athletes of all stripes and terrain preferences helps guests sail through their wealth of options, special-order from hundreds of thousands of components not currently in stock, and discuss the practicality of converting the local public pool into a vert ramp. Buyers cull much of their men's and women's apparel from the Detroit area, including several hard-to-find brands.
