Satchel Dille-Boyd of S&C Cycles had a serendipitous start to his business last summer. The bright orange shipping container storefront at Scadding Court on Dundas West between Spadina and Bathurst was offered to him by a family friend the day he lost his job. Last summer he got his first taste of running a business with partner Chase and it went so well they’re back this year.
They do a lot of flats ($5 tube, $5 labour) and tune-ups (starting at $40). A passion is making custom bikes. They’ve mostly done fixed gear bikes, but are happy to work with your requirements. Just pop over and let them know what you’re looking for and they can help you determine the best bike for your needs (custom bikes starting at $400).
If your bike is in need of some love stop by. S&C Cycles is open Mon to Fridays from 10am to 7pm and on the weekends they’re open 12pm to 7pm. They close when it starts to snow.
