Thanks to our long time supporters Maxxis for a big donation. They had dropped off lots of wheels and tires to SoPo. We are super thankful because these tires and wheels will help keep bikes on the road, in the trails, and any other use of bikes folks can think of.
The most awesome Em got a bike from SoPo. And thank you for generous donation to the shop.
Great story on the bike, it was a donation to SoPo that was picked up by a Dad for his middle school daughter 2 years ago. She has since moved on to high school and out grew the bike.
So her Dad recently donated the bike back to SoPo. A little TLC and now the bikes new owner is Em.
It’s a bike that keeps on giving!

Along the Beltline, the most awesome New Belgium bike was stuck on the side of the trail. It seems that the rear fender came loose, then rolled around the wheel, and wedged itself tightly against the rear tire and frame.
After a couple of minutes of trying, a light bulb switched on, and we were able to remove the fender. The bike was rolling again.
SoPo is happy to help out cyclists in the shop and on the streets. In this case we are returning the favor as Chip and New Belgium have helped out SoPo and the Atlanta cycling community so much.
