"Larry is the best bike mechanic I know," said Dave Fink, Shinn's business partner at Covered Bridge Cyclery.
Shinn opened the bicycle shop Nov. 23 at 11 W. Walnut St. The shop specializes in touring, road, mountain, hybrid, commuter, kids and cruiser bikes -- any and all types of bikes.
"I sell new bikes, used bikes; do repairs and build wheels," added Shinn.
Since there hasn't been a full-service bike shop in Greencastle for 13 years, Shinn feels residents need a local shop.
"Larry understands what people want in a bike shop," said Fink.
Covered Bridge Cyclery offers more than bikes and repairs. There is a lounge area for riders to gather and have coffee, plus organized rides are planned.
"Rides are planned to Hobbit Gardens, Heritage Lake and even the Bread Basket in Coatesville once the weather is warmer," said Shinn.
Additionally, customers can purchase clothing, accessories and anything a cyclist needs, no matter their size. Shinn has started a cycle club for local riders called Walnut Creek Cycling Club.

"We cater to everyone, from beginners to experienced riders," said Shinn. "We want people to feel comfortable coming into the shop."
Covered Bridge Cyclery is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; noon to 5 p.m. Sundays; and closed on Monday. There will be extended hours during the summer months.
