Where to buy riding gear in Columbus OH?

So, is there a dealership in/around Columbus that has a decent selection of riding gear, in particular jackets? Hines on 23 doesn't have much. I could do Mansfield as well.

Not sure what I'm looking for exactly but I'd like to try before I buy.

Thanks

They have a ton of stuff with a pretty large closeout section as well. Definitely worth stopping by.

Wheelsports in Reynoldsburg is my shop of choice. They sell KTMs, but can order anything you want. Wally (one of the owners) is a former Six Days rider, and a hell of a guy.

Well that's pretty funny. I'm not from Westerville but I think I've passed the Iron Pony a couple of times and not known what it was. I'm usually north of Polaris Pkwy though.

But hey, that's great news. Looking forward to spending money on myself Been wearing a jacket that's 2 sizes too large for the last 5 years. Can't tolerate it any longer. I'm up near Grand Rapids, MI now, but I'm leaving for Westerville tomorrow morning (by Strom) to do some work on a house down there this week.

How about we just consider this thread to be a plug for the Iron Pony instead of a testament to my ignorance about where to buy gear in Westerville ey?

Anyway, thanks guys.

Make sure you budget some time cause once you get in there it'll be tough to leave!

Check out all the Teknic stuff in their closeout if you hit Iron Pony - unbelievably low prices on their gear, and it's great stuff! I got a Goretex Monsoon jacket for $100 last time I was there.

Never met a dog I didn't like, a machine I couldn't break, or a woman I couldn't tick off.
