Flying Pigeons on Daily Candy!

Flying Pigeon LA made the front page of Daily Candy.

Flying Pigeon LA made the front page of Daily Candy.

The bike shop my brother and I started in Highland Park has come together quite nicely: big T.V., nice paint job, great work-shop, located next to a Gold Line train stop and Antigua Bread.

We’ve sold a few bikes, and things are looking up. Then I get an email from my brother, “Dude, we’re going to be on Daily Candy.” I turned about as red as one of our PB-13 ladies bicycle frames. Shucks.

They didn’t spare the praise in the article:

Legend tells of a legendary bicycle whose awesomeness is the stuff of legend. Its name: Flying Pigeon LA.

    I can’t believe that the Flying Pigeon has landed in LA! I lived in Tianjin, China for 7 months and I loved my Flying Pigeon. We even considered trying to ship it back to LA. Congrats on your new store and I would love to hear more about the Dim Sum rides.
