A little over a year ago, bike friends Colin and Andee, opened one of the coolest bike shops in Dallas: Switching Gears Cyclery. It started as a small, boutique shop in a small storefront in the Fair Park area.
Just recently, Switching Gears Cyclery has grown their business and moved into a larger space in the same Fair Park area. You can now find them at 3615 Parry at Exposition – just across the street from the DART Fair Park Green Line station. We thank them for being a big part of the north Texas cycling community and we wish them great success.
BTW, I have my eye on that Surly CrossCheck.
We popped over to Switching Gears Cyclery yesterday, to check out their grand opening party. We missed some of the earlier events, including the Dale’s Dash alleycat, but we were able to catch some of Sea Lion (a really awesome local band), check out the new store, and see some really great people.
Of course, with any bike store grand opening, there we lots of bikes to see.

Our friends over at Switching Gears Cyclery will be celebrating their grand opening in a few weeks. Be sure to mark your calendars to attend a great event.

There’s a new bike shop coming to the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. It’s called Switching Gears Cyclery. If you’ve been on any of the 75208 or BFOC rides, you might have met local bike enthusiasts Colin Clark or Andee Pittman. Colin and Andee have decided to join the ranks of other great Dallas bike shops like Oak Cliff Bicycle Company and Transit Bikes and offer a more personalized bike shopping experience.
Their shop will be located in between Fallout Lounge & Amsterdam Bar in Expo Park across the street from Fair Park (just off the DART Green Line). To find out more about Switching Gears Cyclery and what they will be offering, jump over to their Facebook page and Like them. We can’t wait to visit the shop as soon as they are open.

Also, please remember to support your neighborhood bike shops and buy local. You might be able to save a few bucks online, but it will be at the cost of our city’s bike culture. As with all the DFW bike shops, we wish Switching Gears Cycley great success.
