Long Description:
Big Poppi's bike shop is a small local bike shop in Manhattan KS that competes with the big boys on customer service.

From the company's website: (visit link)


We like to say ‘Established Recently’. Well, it’s been a few years now. But we hope, even if we are here for a hundred years, to keep saying it.

The world keeps changing. So we must keep re-establishing ourselves to stay relevant to you.

A lot happens fast. Manhattan, KS was under-served for quality equipment. It took us 8 weeks to go from “Are we doing this?” to “What have we done?” But it’s been an ideal story.

We found great industry brands to partner with. We quickly got tied into organizations at the local, regional and national level. And, we grew much faster than anyone expected.

We have started a couple of organizations, too, including the Flint Hills Area Bicycle Club and Manhattan Trail Works.

Yet, our real history is still made every day, with you. We are under no illusions that the locally owned bicycle store cannot disappear. In fact, around the world and the U.S., it is disappearing. The biggest reason is that too many shops don’t give people a reason to come back. Having your needs helplessly provided in big box aisles or in solitude online is not what leads to great cycling experiences.

So our story will always remain one about old-fashioned customer service and being a place you want to return to. Come make history with us." [end]
