Our pride lies in product knowledge and the keen ability to make good matches of people to bikes - and we’ve done it about 48,000 times without any high-volume sales. Each “match” is one-on-one, and those people who figure us out and get through some of the “obstacles” keep coming back.
We seldom run sales or advertisements. We are usually so busy that there’s not much more we can handle with the degree of service we like to provide and the customers expect. We offer prices in line with local and national trends and generally work closely with our customers to be competitive with many high volume catalogs as well.
We don’t offer any financing, not even the 90-day same-as-cash, or monthly payment plans. We do take several credit cards, do long-term layaways, take anything on trade to help offset costs, and can work creatively with those who might not be able meet obligations for what they need. Although we have no dishes to wash, we have several customers who have “worked off their wheels” over the years both in the shop and on several community service projects.

Mt Airy won the Brainy National Green Award in January, and were voted Consumer Choice "Favorite shop" by LAB members for 2007.
Alan and I first met Larry Black back when Interbike was still in Anaheim,CA. Larry was there for the early morning ride with his new Pocket Rocket. He was one of the few bike shop owners of the thousands that attend the Interbike show who actually ride a bike let alone ride a bike in such an unbikefriendly environment as Orange county. You see Larry is a cyclist cyclist. Much in the vein of Bob the friendly bike shop owner in Maynard Hershon's Tails from the bike shop. He loves his customers and it shows. Larry's two shops, Mt Airy and College park have been carrying Bike Friday longer than any other shop in the world, starting in 1994 shortly after we started ourselves.
If you do make it over to Mt. Airy or College Park cycles for a test, be sure to say "Hi" for us.
