New Shop on the Block: uBRDO

I have found my new favorite LBS. On my commute home through Kirkland, I found this small little shop that just opened its doors: uBRDO! From the site, U brdo is Croatian for “in the hills, or mountains”. I stopped by when I first noticed the shop was open and talked to the owner Scott Richardson. As soon as I walked in - it was pretty apparent that this shop’s identity is right in the BikeHugger niche. Swobo bikes, lots of commuter-specific gear, simple, elegant - lots of stuff just focusing on the beauty of the bike.

Hey - they’re open past 6! Most nights Scott is open until 8! We are open sign

I’ve been in a handful of times with my son and each time Scott has something new to show me. It’s truly an adult bike-candy store. He uses all the stuff he sells, and so there is some crossover into the backpacking market.

Road Find: a bra!

Of all the things I’ve found while riding (a garden gnome, various screwdrivers, a yoyo, etc.) this bra is one of the best and I thought it made a nice adornment to Mark’s frame…

It was found on Western Ave in downtown Seattle.

What have you found? I heard about a cyclist finding an XBox once and one of my teammates found enough cash to buy us all pizza.

Notes:

  • Audio Sample is Dirty Harry (Schtung Chinese New Year Remix) – Gorillaz - D-Sides.
  • Maglev was running at lower power to save energy during non peak hours – it’s goes 408/kmh
  • The ferry boarding procedure was “intense”
