The East Side of Austin is home to the Pedal Pushers. Nestled on 5th street, next to the train tracks, this small local bike shops caters to the everyday cyclist. The shop itself is rich in texture and personality, just how I like it.

Check out more photos of the East Side Pedal Pushers below.

Bike shops like this are some of my favorite spaces. Products are hung from the ceiling, making use of every square inch of space.

I’ve said this before: what ever is in the repair stand at any given moment tells a lot about a shop’s customer.
