Huckleberry Bicycles opened in the grungy mid-market neighborhood in 2011 when that strip of the city had even fewer redeeming qualities. The owners tell Hayeswire they thought the location, despite the pungent smell and questionable neighbors, might pay off, because so many bike commuters take advantage of Market's bicycle lane every day. And it looks like they were totally right, because they've outgrown their space and in October the store is expanding.

According to Facebook, the additional space will make room for "more bikes, more clothing and gear, and lots more breathing (room)." It looks like they have a nifty new mural going in as well.
