Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Personally, I think this model won't work and I can imagine the inefficient use of space will be costly in the long run.

Biking fans everywhere, here is something that will make your day! Designed by architect Joan Sandoval, this incredible bike store located in  Barcelona displays its products as if they were paintings in a gallery: using white and well-lit display cases for a maximum customer’s thrill.

Found on Notcot, Pave features various products, from bicycles to footwear, making it every biker’s dream. Branding for the shop was created by Marcel Batlle, who provided the following description:

The project started with the owner of the shop, a bicycle and cycling enthusiast called Javier Maya, 9 months ago. The idea is to offer much more than just a cycling shop. We have showers for use after training, a nice TV to watch Giro, Le Tour, Paris Roubaix…There is a paved entry, making reference to the name of the shop and the classic bicycle race. The shop is 700m2 with lots of space where you can enjoy all the products.” Biking fans, have you ever seen a more captivating bicycle shop?
