The Stanyans Are Here
The Stanyans (formerly the Speedster) have arrived in all their black, silver and chromed glory. This is our lugged CrMo road sport frame/fork set (perfect for centuries and multi-day charity rides). We will try to get info and more pix up on the website soon, but shops can order from Merry Sales this week.
We named it after Stanyan St. in SF, because the street is historically known for its many bicycle shops. It used have at least 7 bike shops all in the four-block area where it borders Golden Gate Park.
(Maybe one of you knows of more)
Currently there are four:
American Cyclery and American Cyclery, Too
American Cyclery, Too used to be San Francisco Cyclery which is where I got my first road bike, a turquoise blue Schwinn Varsity. There were also Lincoln Cyclery, Start to Finish, and Vision Cyclery. Avenue Cyclery also owned a second shop in the area, but the name escapes me.
Great little spot in the city. Close to all the fun shops and eateries on Haight Street and just cross the street to test ride your bike in Golden Gate Park.
