Opened in 2006 by industry veteran and lifelong shop rat, Darren McKay, Vancouver’s Dream Cycle may be the perfect embodiment of this dream. Beautiful, custom-built steel touring and city bikes line the shop floor. Jewel-like components gleam in glass-fronted wooden cases. Hand-painted and carved signs welcome customers and spell out the shop’s services and rates. Even the tool benches and work stands ooze quality and careful consideration.
