Owner Casey Karnes worked for years as a Downtown bike courier, but B1 Bicycles caters to much more than the fixed-gear set. On the racks of his store are completes, accessories and replacement parts for cyclo-cross, road, comfort and mountain riders.

B1 Bicycles 124 E. Long St., Downtown 614-222-0017 Homepage

He carries an extensive brand list, including Cannondale, Bianchi, Masi, Surly, GT and Gunnar. Also in stock are locks, lights, gloves, racks and a full line of B1 racing clothes. (Always community-minded, the store sponsors various race teams around Central Ohio.)

Price points are sometimes higher than bigger Central Ohio retailers, but everything is top quality. Karnes and staff also run a full-service shop, with routine deals on tune-ups and other maintenance.
