SF-based company Timbuk2 is beloved by techies and bike messengers for their customizable carryalls, so it makes sense that they'd choose pedal-friendly Abbot Kinney for their LA flagship. Located across the street from Linus Bike and next door to sweet spot N'ice Cream, the bag brand's Venice boutique is expected to open mid-July.
In addition to showcasing Timbuk2's signature messenger bags, backpacks, totes, accessories and more, the 680-square-foot shop will offer the same in-store bike share program as their Seattle and SF locations starting in August.
