mostawesome2014 "Owned by master bicycle mechanic Danu Huber, The World Cycles is located in the heart of East Vancouver: on Commercial Street just off Commercial Drive and 18th. Step inside this great little shop and it’s as if you’ve been transported back in time. The World Cycles specializes in vintage coaster brake tank bikes, like pre-war Schwinns, and the number of museum quality restored vintage bikes is astounding. With over 20 years experience in the industry, including designing his own mountain bike frames for his company Hukk Bikes, Huber can restore and rebuild most any make and model of bike. He stocks some hard to find parts, and can even build you a custom cycle based on a cruiser bike frame, but with an electric motor. The World Cycles is the MOST AWESOME bike shop because of their knowledge and expertise, as well as the no-attitude, genuinely friendly mechanic." - Rachel Bee, editor of V.I.A.'s Bike Brake feature
