Bicycle Heaven is inspired by a shop of the same name in the Chateau neighborhood of Pittsburgh, and is in reference to the pastels of vintage bicycles. Chateau was once part of Manchester, one of Pittsburgh's thriving African American neighborhoods on the Northside of the city. The neighborhood was split in half in the 1960s by the construction of Rt. 65 and the section closest to the river was named Chateau and struggled to thrive. It is now home to warehouses, few residents, the Rivers Casino and the Carnegie Science Center.
