Bikes on Howard

Bikes on Howard is owned by Jill and Calvin Brownlee. They opened in the spring of 2000[1]. They were first located in the building that is now The Maine Salon, 111 E Howard St.[2]. In 2003 Bikes on Howard moved to a larger building, 407 E Howard Street[3].

Calvin and Jill first got the idea to open their own business when they saw another bicycle business for sale[4]. The owner of this business didn’t want to sell until the end of the season, which would have made it very hard to stay in business[5]. This is what made them want to open their own bicycle shop. When they started out they were located in a small building downtown Hibbing[6]. Three years later they realized they needed more space[7]. The building they are now located in has a lot of room for the merchandise they sell and the bicycle repairs they do[8]. They sell bicycles, helmets, bicycle accessories, fitness equipment, skateboards and skateboard accessories[9]. The store has a main area where most of the bicyles and bicycle accessories are located and another smaller area where skateboards and BMX bicycles are sold[10].

Starting out in 2000 Calvin and Jill mainly sold Trek, Schwinn, and Giant bicycles[11]. As the years went on though they became more and more of a Trek store[12]. Today they sell mainly Trek bicycles.
