Stephen T. Watson of The Buffalo News Interviews The
Bicycle Man for his featured article, "Lack of
high-speed Internet puts rural areas at a disadvantage"
Over in Alfred Station, also in Allegany County, Bicycle
Man, Peter Stull has broadband — and a Web site that
draws customers from the other side of the globe to his
shop to buy recumbent bicycles.
“The Web meant that we can reach out past our local
market and grow our business in our specialty, so we can
stock a really deep selection of bikes and draw people
from a ridiculous distance,” said Stull, surrounded by
bikes parked on the floor and hanging from the ceiling.
Customers often drive over 200 miles to
test ride our 'bents. When it comes to selecting
your Human Powered Vehicle (HPV) we think you should get
a bike that is just perfect for you, your riding style
and your budget. If you want to test ride for 2 or more
days there are several motels, B&Bs and campgrounds
nearby. You will find them listed here:
local info page. We enjoy taking the time to fit our
customers to the right recumbent bike and have therefore
made a considerable commitment to have the largest
recumbent inventory in the area. Feel free to test ride
a wide variety of recumbent bikes here before making
your decision. We also take recumbents and quality
traditional bikes in trade.
