as of today (sunday 2 Oct) is closed. I was an employee for over 7 months, and have gotten to know a few of you here. I'm sad about it because the shop was great, in as far as service. I met a lot of great people through the shop. Not only mountain bikers, but also road bikers, towpath riders, and so on. I also learned so much there. Wrenching on all of the bikes gave me great experience, and I grew to love it. It's a hard thing, because this community really needed a good bike shop, and Hites filled that spot pretty well. With any luck, another group of owners will come in and put in a shop of the same caliber. So, any of you who were not aware of it yet, I'm sorry to bring you the news. If anyone has any more questions, please feel free to contact me. PM will probably be the fastest. The website gives a quick comment about the closing, and the reasons why.
