On the corner of Bird Road and SW 27 Avenue, one can’t help but notice a large Penny-farthing on the sidewalk (a Penny-farthing is type of bicycle with a large front wheel and a much smaller rear wheel that was popular in the 1880s. They were the first machines to be called “bicycles”.) Although the trend of the penny farthing was short-lived, its popularity also coincided with the birth of cycling as a sport.
Hence, it is only natural that behind this Penny-Farthing, one can find Top Dog Cycle. Top Dog Cycle, opened in 2010, is a bicycle boutique with top of the line tools and equipment that services bicycles in a professional manner.

They have everything one needs to help them maximize their performance without breaking the bank. Their “Focus” bikes cover the entire spectrum of sport and racing bikes. Their “Santa Cruz” models are made from either carbon fiber or aluminum with cutting edge suspension designs.
According to Top Dog Cycle Manager Eddie Diaz, “We are a professional service facility managed by a talented team of four employees with years of experience. We are a small store and we pride ourselves on our friendly service… where customers are not just numbers, but rather promising racers. Our customers are our number one priority.”
Eddie Diaz also stated that Top Dog Cycle caters to those that participate in Miami’s many Triathlons, bi-annual bike club evens and bike races including the Nautica South Beach Triathlon and Miami’s Halloween Critical Mass ride.
