Spokes was one of the most dedicated employees at The Bike Hub.
Mostly his duties involved finding the sunniest spots in the store and moving with them throughout the day (you'd find him up by the helmets enjoying the morning eastern sun, and then by the kids' bikes roating in the southern afternoon sun).
When the weather turned cold in fall, he got to work catching a mouse or two, but other than that, he simply filled his days by rubbing up against the legs of customers and jumping into recently vacated (and warm) chairs in the office. He had many fans who would stop in during the middle of their rides just to say "hi" and give him a scratch behind the ears... the rest of us knew where we stood!
