In the last week, the storefront at 149 Smith Street, at the corner of Bergen Street, got a makeover with a coat of fresh paint. I stopped by to talk to the workers, who told me that a new bike store, appropriately called "Bike Smith", will be coming to that location soon. Besides bikes, it will offer repair service and eventually rentals.
One of the workers explained that this will be a sister store to one on Vanderbilt Avenue. Perhaps its Brooklyn Bike An Board in Prospect Heights?
