the Best Bike Shop EVER!

How it All Started

What’s the story behind the bikes on the walls? It all started when an employee asked Peter Horstmann, the owner, what to do with about 40 bikes that customers had brought in as trade ins. “Hang ’em on the wall,” Horstmann replied from his gut, and over time the number of bikes has increased to about 120.

The oldest bike on the wall is from 1933. There are all kinds of models, including one that a customer has recognized as a bike that was stolen from him in 1986 at a train station. The shop owner offered to return it to him, but he declined (guess he had bought another one since then).
