    IOW, Clever Cycles East?

    I had that same thought. Pretty cool. Here’s more background…

    I’ve popped into Adeline Adeline a few times. While I’ve never been to Clever Cycles, I don’t think this shop is quite the same. They do stock some of the same brands, but the focus seems to be on fashionable (but still useful) rather than useful (but still fashionable). It’s not really a full service bike shop.

    That said, the staff are extremely friendly and approachable and the merchandise is all impeccably selected and laid out. I ended up having them order a Pletscher 2-leg kickstand for me when I needed a replacement (there was an incident with my old one involving two glasses of wine and a hacksaw).
