Mad Dog Bicycles started as a small basement hobby.  Back in 1991 I retrieved  my old (1971) Schwinn Collegiate 5 speed that was stored away in my parents basement in Delmar NY. I thought  maybe it was time to see if I could make it ride again.  Through the help of a local bike shop in  the Boston area, where I was working at the time, I was able to revitalize the bike up to practically like new condition.  From that point on I was hooked!    My interests gravitated to older Schwinn bikes from my childhood years, the 1960'-early 1970's. As it turned out, I was not the only one interested in these old  Schwinns.  I found myself going to Bicycle specific swap meets, and met other enthusiasts with similar obsessions.. I developed a network of contacts to buy, sell, and trade parts with.  My hobby turned into a real passion.  I was always (and still am ) looking for unusual vintage Schwinn bikes.  Stingrays, Krates, Manta Rays, Fastbacks, Corvettes, Jaguars and even older models like The Black Phantom or Panther.
Along the path I found many other bicycles to good to be disposed of.  I started fixing them up in my spare time for friends and neighbors.  By 1993 I was back in Delmar and started  the annual all weekend Bicycle garage sale.    The garage sale lasted 13 years.  Every year it got bigger.  It became a yearly event for many locals and neighbors and was tons of fun !  We were selling , trading and even buying used bicycles all weekend. I found a little niche in the Delmar area repairing and selling used bikes.
In 2005 an opportunity arose  to open a retail bike shop in the former location Of the Eagles Nest Bike shop here in Delmar. I started out selling just used bikes, but found I could not keep enough supply in stock to last the season.  Thats when I decided to get into new  bikes.
I researched several different brands and chose Jamis Bicycles. They offer a full line of high quality Road bicycles, comfort bicycles, and Mountain bicycles and youth models at reasonable prices.
I still try to keepsome used bikes on hand and I am always looking for more.  My collection of older Schwinns is always evolving. Please contact me if you have any vintage Schwinns, or even other brands if you are looking to move along, or fix up.
