Funny you should mention this shop. I was driving home from Baltimore today and decided to stop into Mt. Airy's "sister" shop in College Park, Maryland, as well as the resurgent Proteus Bicycles.

So, Larry Black's College Park store had dozens (perhaps hundreds) of classic bikes and frames hanging from the ceiling. All fabulous stuff... And at Proteus, one of bikes on display was a fixed gear bike built from an old Coventry Eagle frame. They told me that this was a frame that they had originally sold in the early '70s and which managed to find it's way back to the shop in recent weeks. They also told me that, once again, they have a frame builder on the premises.

Anyway, if you're passing through this region, the shops in Mt. Airy and College Park are definitely worth a visit.
