Sterling Schwinn Bike Shop, not sure of the address.  It is on 16 mile Rd in Troy/Sterling Heights, MI.  Saw my first high quality BMX bike in that shop back in '85 and from then, on, I was hooked.

Rockville BMX- In Rockville MD, not sure when it closed. It was owned by a guy named Jay I believe, and if I'm not mistaken, Spike Jonz used to build bikes there. When I was a kid, I thought it was the coolest place on earth. Bring it back Jay!

+1 for Rockville BMX - kind of a hike so my parents would rarely take me there.

For me:

And later we moved to MD:

Re: List your OLD SCHOOL BMX Bike Shop Here

I seem to remember a team out of Media or maybe it was Kent Gordy that lived there. I'm thinking Soma (ran red/yellow Griffs leathers) was out of Media. Do you go back far enough to remember the Lakeview Amusement Park NBL track?
