Lower Haight bike shop Wiggle Bicycles has closed up shop for a week, as it moves locations from 520 Waller St. to next-door 518 Waller St. The move comes a little over a year after Wiggle opened up shop on Waller Street, and the reason is one not unfamiliar to Lower Haight businesses: earthquake retrofitting.
Unlike Rooky Ricardo's Records and Merch, both of which vacated their storefronts with a plan to move back when the work is done, Wiggle Bicycles is going to stay put in its new location (which was just retrofitted). The new shop has high ceilings and has been custom-built to support their bike selection and repair shop.
The shop will open at the new address on July 4th with a group bike ride and barbecue that'll include music from Vinyl Dreams' owner Mike Bee.
