It’s been like hell on Earth here in NYC the past two days. With temperatures well above 100° F, the entire 5 Burroughs are feeling the pressure! I couldn’t even manage to stay outside long enough to take photos so I headed to a few shops in lower Manhattan to say hey to some friends. First up was Bicycle Habitat‘s newly-opened expansion. With bike shops becoming ever-so-popular nowadays, some shops are opening separate wings that focus on high-end components and frames.
Check out more photos below!
The fresh build-out showcases some of the premiere brands they carry.
As a Cinelli retailer, Habitat has the 2010 Cinelli Mash frames in stock.
From there, I went by Rapha’s Cycling Club to check out the Tour.
The space is starting to fill-out with product nicely. I’ve always wanted one of those Hampsten jerseys.
My Merckx parked in the indoor bike parking rack.
If you’re free, you should catch the tour at the space before work.
… and ring their cowbell.
Speaking of jerseys, these Tourmalet summer jerseys are so nice.
Not a bad way to escape the heat. Unfortunately, me sitting at my desk isn’t exciting to look at. It’s too hot to go outside today!
