Bike Shop Fits The Neighborhood
Quietly tucked among the buildings of Spokane’s Browne’s Addition is a 3 story building that appears to be at home in the historic district just as much as the Patsy Clark Mansion or The Campbell House.
The building looks as though it was pulled up from the streets of some European town at the turn of the 1900’s and transplanted in Spokane, with a small shop on the main floor and living space on the second and third floors. Inside people are treated to the delights of the bicycle world with a taste of when bikes were made for casual trips around the neighborhood to the need for speed and plenty of cutting edge technology.
Steve’s On Cannon Street is a bike shop like no other in Spokane. Looking through the windows or walking into the shop and you are instantly taken to a world where bikes are more than toys, more than just aluminum, steel or carbon pieces and parts. The bikes are artwork, they are crafted, they are visions, they are dreams. From the beautifully lugged frame of a Waterford to the seamless elegance of carbon Bianchi, Steve’s On Cannon Street offers a bike for just about anyone’s desire.
Owner Steve Loveland has operated bike shops in Spokane since 1984, in downtown and on the South Hill. He was the technical director for the U.S. Olympic bike trials held in Spokane in 1984 and 1988. Though the other bike shop was highly regarded, it was time for a change. “I was wanting to go back to my roots,” says Loveland. A simple bike shop offering all the services needed and with the feel of home.
The building which houses Steve’s On Cannon is a new addition to Browne’s Addition. Loveland had it built so that it would fit in with the neighborhood and for those who appreciate bikes, it’s a very good fit.
