Shop of the Week – Behind Bars, Minneapolis

Behind Bars has won “Best Shop” in their paper two years running, and they’re in Minneapolis, the best bike town in the nation. They opened five and a half years ago, and have been a Kona dealer the entire time. Kona is one of Chuck’s (the owner) main two brands. Chuck’s a great guy, and like everyone in Minneapolis, has cool facial hair, tattoos, and rides everywhere and is an ex-messenger. He has an awesome skateboarding daughter and a great wife. He’s one of the founding members of the Stupor Bowl, a huge cycling event. If you’re in the Minneapolis area, drop by and check out Behind Bars for their 30% off all 2009 models sale.
