Seattle Met ran a profile of 20/20 Cycles earlier this week as part of their “Meet the Shopkeeper” series. Here’s an excerpt:
Shop Talk: What song or album is playing on your store’s sound system right now?Kostelnik: I play Journey Into the Satchidananda by Alice Coltrane, Dead Moon, A Fist Full Of Film Music, and the Sonics. If Scott is working you will undoubtedly hear Broken Spindles and in the mornings, Chris rocks beautiful organ music by Terry Riley.What was your first job? How does it compare to your job now?I was a dishwasher at the Hearthstone, a Greenlake rest home. Now, 30 years later, I don’t work for a singular boss, I work for all my customers. It’s harder for them to get me in trouble now!What’s your favorite thing in the store right now?The Sealth, our own hand made touring and commuting bike. It’s built with union-made, Mississippi-manufactured U.S. steel and then hand-assembled here in Seattle. It’s named after the famous Seattle ferry boat which, in turn, was named after Chief Sealth.
