LA Times Article: For those who ask 'Why am I driving?' there's Banker Supply bike shop in Echo Park

November 10, 2016

Walk into Banker Supply Co. in Echo Park and you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd just entered an exhibition space instead of a new bike store. 

The “cycling lifestyle” boutique, as it's described by founder Nick Drombosky, opened for business last month in an 1,800-square-foot space with high ceilings, white walls and concrete flooring that showcases about a dozen bikes, racks of stylish clothing and footwear designed for everyday urban biking.

The apparel includes San Francisco-brand Parker Dusseau's dress shirts made from antimicrobial performance fabrics, and shoes from DZR — which look like regular street shoes but are designed for pedals. There are also accessories like sleek titanium locks and a special wax that adheres eyeglasses to the face.
