Bike shop sold
Chainwheel owner Bruce Thalheimer is selling the bicycle store to Trek Bicycle Corp. of Wisconsin. “After a great deal of consideration, we’ve decided the time has come to take a new and exciting step,” Thalheimer said in a statement. “We found a new partner in Trek Bicycle who will take what we’ve created here and build on it, continuing to serve the community in even bigger and better ways, while sticking to the same core principles of treating people like family and delivering outstanding customer services. … Know we are leaving [customers] in good hands.” Arkansas Business reported that the deal was expected to go through in mid-September and the store’s name and management would change. Chainwheel was established in 1971.
