Best Bike Shop - 2010
Cranks, cogs, cassettes — if you know exactly what all that is, or even if it all sounds Greek, Tempe Bicycle is the place to roll in a beater or carry out one of the shiners on the floor. Bud and Yvonne Morrison have been selling, fixing and talking bicycles in Tempe for more than 30 years. They've moved a couple of times — from their original shop on Mill Avenue, to their hub on University Drive — but perhaps they've found their permanent place, er, places. The couple's shops cater to the abundance of road, mountain, and hipster bikes that populate Tempe. Sales and full repairs are available at both locations, and bike rentals can be found at the shop on Rural. If you can't find the couple in one of their shops, you might spot them on the road — Bud's been spotted on his high-wheeler antique, and Yvonne leads the Tempe Bike Sunday Rides.
