The likelihood of my sons seeing this blog prior to Christmas was almost non-existent, but just in case, there wasn't too much information. That is about to change, but first things first.
Steve's On Cannon Street is the name of the blog, and not coincidentally, the name of Steve Loveland's newish bike shop on Cannon Street in Spokane's Brownes Addition. Steve was the founder and long-time owner of Two Wheel Transit, but he had a vision for a different type of store; one where he was the sole employee and he had the chance to focus on the specialty bikes that take a bit more time and personality to put together. Steve had always done a lot of one-off bikes, custom bikes and special orders, but the new shop gave him the space to concentrate more time and effort on that part of the business. He still carries inventory and some well-known bike brands, like Masi, Raleigh, Seven, Orbea, Bianchi and in the exotic category, Pashley. He has also jumped on-board the 29" mountain bike movement and has just picked up Niner as his latest brand.
All of this makes it a bit crowded in the one-man shop, but those of you who know Steve know that he is most comfortable with some boxes around, and this way when you walk in the door there is no question about who is going to be there to answer questions and get you ready for your next ride or your next bike.
Steve's On Cannon Street is located at 145 S. Cannon Street. He is next to the Elk/El Que and across the street from Italia Trattoria, which makes it a great place to start or end a bike ride. You can call Steve at 509-747-5220, but much better is to stop in say hello and let him know you saw the blog. There is no time like the present be getting ready to ride or make plans for a new bike. There is snow outside today, but spring is just around the corner and we will be riding soon. And some of us will be riding new single speeds. More on that soon.

No, it's not Santa's Sleigh, but it will have to suffice to transport this righteous load of Niner frames and forks from Steve's on Cannon to some inappropriately lucky guy's winter solstice holiday celebration tree. Yep, one lucky guy, two lucky kids, one extremely tolerant wife. What every house needs this time of year.
Best of the season to you and yours! The Niner Single Speed Adventure is about to begin.
