The Mindful Bike: City and Cargo Bike Shop in Denver

FINALLY... a city bike shop in Denver. What? City and cargo bikes available in Denver? And not off of Craigslist, or eBay, or some other online site. Apparently, it's true! I was a bit shocked to discover that there is a new bike shop in town: The Mindful Bike. I should first disclose that I have yet to visit the shop (though believe me, I will), but I was so ecstatic to see a Colorado shop that is focused on and carrying brands such as Pashley, Abici, Velorbis, Pilen, and Larry vs Harry that I had to share the news for any others who might not have been aware that this shop is open. After all, I have wanted to test ride the Velorbis Scrap Deluxe for a couple of years now and to know that there's a shop in Colorado... well, I just about fainted.

How I missed the grand opening in late July remains a bit of a mystery, but I suppose since I don't live in the belly of the beast, it's a bit more of a challenge to notice a new shop popping up in town. In addition to city and cargo bicycles, The Mindful Bike is also carrying a slew of accessories from Basil, Brooks, Po Campo, and Portland Design Works, just to name a few.

I'm truly beside myself at the moment as I sit here giddy and wanting to go for a visit - today... but sadly, the shop is closed Monday and Tuesday each week. However, regular hours (as posted on their website) have them open Wednesday through Sunday, so, if like me you're interested in taking a look for yourself, you can find them at 3509 E. 12th Ave in Denver. Maybe I should just go and camp outside the door until Wednesday morning - or maybe not, but I will be there soon for a visit.

Has anyone local been to this shop yet? I feel like a little girl on Christmas day discovering something so exciting.

Word verification is on, but I've turned off the moderation portion in an attempt to make it easier for you to know that your comment has indeed made it through. We'll see how this goes, but I'm hopeful that this will help out and I'll try my best to weed through and remove spammers comments. Additionally, I recommend copying comments before hitting publish as the "blogger comment eater" seems to continue his snacking.
