Cristy’s Bike Shop has been my go to bike shop for the longest time and it has always been in Cartimar even before I started cycling. Cristy’s has become something of an institution, really. A couple of days ago I asked Cristy for a bit of history.
Cristy got started in the bicycle business in Quiapo in 1965. By 1975, she decided to make a name for herself and started Cristy’s Bike Shop in Cartimar. Several years ago the shop caught fire but you can’t really keep a good shop closed so Cristy’s doors soon reopened a few meters from its original location and, if I remember correctly, the current shop is bigger now.
