Marquette recently received an international award for mountain biking excellence, and now, one of the city’s bike shops has received similar recognition. The Quick Stop Bike Shop has been named one of America’s best bike shops for 2014. About 200 stores around the country receive the honor from the National Bicycle Dealers Association. There are about 4,000 member shops, so the award represents the top 5% of those members. The shops are also judged by their efforts to promote the building of new trails, and there’s a customer service component as well. The dealers group has sent a mystery shopper to each winning store. Shop owner Phillip Ott thinks the fact that the Quick Stop is the oldest bike shop in Marquette may also have helped. The store has done business at the same address on North Third Street for 35 years.
