We’re announcing the opening of the newest branch of Big Shark Bicycle Company, the St. Louis full-service bicycle retail and repair company. Located on the far west side of the property street level and under Alamo Drafthouse, Big Shark Bicycle Co. will offer a diverse inventory of bikes and products, full-service repairs, and professionally-trained staff to help cyclists while continuing to promote a bike-friendly community within St. Louis.
“When people come to City Foundry STL, we want them to make an experience out of it and the shops have been curated specifically to offer an array of exciting options so there is something for everyone,” says Will Smith, Managing Director of New + Found. “In addition to our 17-kitchen Food Hall, fashion-forward retail shops, and entertainment concepts, such as the recently opened Puttshack and Alamo Drafthouse, Big Shark will add even more vitality to the community. With spring on the horizon, this is perfect timing. We are also looking forward to the new location serving as a launch point for future races and other programming for our guests and the larger St. Louis community.”
Big Shark’s new space will feature a complete showroom with displays of the top-of-the-line cycling brands, products, and accessories offered alongside a larger space for the bike company’s professionally trained mechanics to handle repair and maintenance requests.
“In our efforts to make our city a more bike-friendly place, we hope that our City Foundry STL location can bring cycling to people in an economic, accessible way – from the transportation cyclist to more niche cycling, such as mountain biking and competitions,” says Mike Weiss, owner and co-founder of Big Shark Bicycle Company. “The bike community of St. Louis continues to grow. We are particularly excited about the Brickline Greenway, which will flow right through City Foundry STL, making it a trailhead for mid-town and downtown.”
Big Shark City Foundry STL will be the company’s fourth business in addition to its shops on Big Bend, West Chesterfield and the Power Up Training Center. Big Shark will be open 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. on weekdays, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
