Tucked away within arm?s reach of Atlanta?s shade-happy Grant Park, Loose Nuts Cycles is nothing to laugh at ? despite the lighthearted moniker. Shop owners Chris Tavel and Kareem Shehab--both sponsored fixed-gear riders--pride themselves on providing a true full-service bicycle shop. You can simply get parts for bikes, have your bikes repaired, or go Frankenstein-style and build a bike from scratch. Being the only store in Atlanta to carry lines such as Civia, Leader, and 8th Inch is almost as impressive as the store's vast supply of high-end vintage bikes and hard-to-find parts. Even if you aren?t skilled enough to land huge sponsorships, Loose Nuts will help you look the part with cool Valentine riding hats. Novice or pro, if you?re into cycling, this shop is certainly worth a visit.
