Started in 1974 as a small bicycle repair shop on Hennepin Ave., The Alt has continually grown to fulfill the needs of our neighborhood customers. We began carrying skateboards in 1977 and snowboards in 1979. As the sports have changed, so have we. Service and repair has always been the most important part of our business. Even though the shop is now located on Lyndale Ave., and the management has passed from father to sons, our commitment to excellent service without the attitude is what makes us the only bike, snowboard and skateboard store you should shop at.
