In an age when bike manufacturers load their products with dazzling but useless crud (Hint: You don't need disc brakes or shock absorbers to ride the Metroparks), Shaker Cycle owner Mitch Paul is an old-fashioned bicycle curmudgeon. His attitude: Don't be a sucker. He'll take hours to help you pick a bike, emphasizing fit and functionality over flash. He stocks mostly last year's models, which he sells at up to 40 percent off. His shop has a certain "recently ransacked by wild dogs" charm, but he can fix anything on two wheels, cheaper and faster than anywhere else in town. And, most important, he won't screw you.
