Monday’s ribbon cutting ceremony marked the official opening of Fusion Multisport in downtown Los Alamos. Owners Brad and Rose Nyenhuis moved from Indiana in October to open their new business.

“We’re just excited … the response from people here has been incredible,” Brad told the Los Alamos Daily Post Monday. “Opening a store and having people come in and thank us, well, I just don’t know what to say about that … this response has been more than we ever dreamed of.” 

They had dinner with members of the cycling and running community who told the couple that Los Alamos needed a bike, ski and running store. Brad is an avid cyclist while Rose loves running and they both enjoy skiing. They came out for a visit in February and fell in love with the town and found it a perfect fit because it offered their favorite activities.

Brad first reached out to Business Advisor Katie Stavert of Los Alamos Business Assistance Services in February to obtain market information and assistance with developing a business plan. He also asked for a recreational report and sporting club contacts. Brad and Rose worked over the next couple of months, with assistance from Stavert. They leased a 2,200-square-foot store at 106 Central Park Square in the heart of downtown Los Alamos.

They offer running shoes, apparel, accessories and free computerized gait analysis. For cyclists, they carry Canfield Brothers bikes, and offer bike repair services, apparel and accessories. Brad also handles ski tuning, waxing and repairs.
