Capitol Schwinn Cyclery

Editors' Picks

Lou, the owner of Capitol Schwinn Cyclery, has been at the helm for 29 years. The shop sells more than just bikes; they are the biggest Rawlings dealer in the Pacific Northwest and sell more baseballs than any other store, shipping the round, red-stitched balls all over the place. Lou runs an "upper end baseball store" with some gloves costing close to $800. The Italian leather, hand-stitched gloves are worn by many major league players. When Lou's son was drafted by Atlanta, Lou's interest in baseball really took off. Other interesting items in the inventory include 15 different unicycles and Benelli shotguns. And of course, he sells some bikes. Lou said anyone who knows anything knows that if you are going to buy a cruiser, you buy a Schwinn.
