jackspadebike-sales-032009.jpgWho: Jack & Jimbo's Bike Shop Opening
What: Today is the first official day of spring so how fitting that this week, Jack Spade is bringing back a little old-school charm to the two-wheel culture with his newest concept shop, Jack & Jimbo's Bike Shop. Featuring vintage bicycles from Landmark Vintage, Jack Spade bags, and renowned Rapha cycling apparel and accessories, this charming bike shop is not your average run-of-the-mill hobby shop. In addition to their selection of hard-to-find vintage bikes, Jimbo Molinari, a seasoned bike mechanic, has come out of retirement to perform his specialty tune-ups and repairs every Friday and Saturday. With a trusty bike doctor, apparel, and coordinating Jack Spade accessories, we're joining the weekend peloton and saying Tour de Brooklyn, here we come.
