Roll in here (if you can!)

The previous photo showed the top of the store next door as well as the mural on the roll-up shutter. The sign above the entrance for Pima Street Bicycle is about as generic as you can get, though. So let's see just the mural that's hidden while the store is open:
The mural advertises “expert bicycle repair.” So if you can't ride your bike here, you can always carry it in to be fixed.

I stopped by (in my car) near sunset on May 28th, 2017.

Updates: As David Aber was doing his usual careful checking (he's caught my goofs more than a few times!), he saw on Google Street View that the shop had moved two blocks away — from 5247 to 5445 East Pima — sometime between the time I snapped this photo and the time the Street View car rolled by on June 2018. Even more interesting is that the store took the mural with them — on the same roll-up shutter! I've updated the Location at the bottom of this entry.

Monty “Ses” painted the mural with help from Rickey “Sketch” Bush.
