Our Shop of the Week posts return with a look at a super cool shop in downtown Manhattan, NYC Velo. Andrew, the owner, is a super cool guy who’s been racing XC and Road for years, supports cycling advocacy and commuting, and all told, runs a great shop that Kona’s proud to be a part off. And hark, lone behold, NYC Velo currently has a sweet demo program going right now with Kona Major Jake XC bikes. Click HERE for the full beta.

Here’s a sweet exert from the site:

Andrew graduated from Texas A&M with an engineering degree. Upon arriving in NYC, he took on the streets as a bike messenger. He then went on to work for several years as a management consultant specializing in supply chain management throughout the country, always keeping his home base as NYC. In 2004, Andrew’s love of the city brought him back home full time. He spent some time with a well-known Manhattan shop before venturing out on his own. Andrew’s passion for cycling of all types and his desire to create the most customer friendly shop in the city led him to open NYC Velo.
