"Surf's Up As Shop Grows"
by Bridget LeRoy
...... Khanh Sports, on Park Place in East Hampton Village, which opened in 1997, has added upscale eyewear and a full service bicycle shop to his enterprise. For after-hours, he sells table tennis tables.
Back behind Main Street in East Hampton, the laid-back kingdom of Khanh Ngo, proprietor of Khanh Sports/EH Eyeware, has grown over the years from a 600-square-foot mostly sun-and-surf shop to a double-wide store. Eyeglasses and bikes are new this year.
The winter renovations at Khanh Sports were done by Mr. Ngo and the shop’s employees. “We put down Brazilian cherry floors. We cut through to the sunglass place and then broke through the back of the store that existed in the back,” he said.
Khan Sports carries specialized bikes: Fat Bikes, Hybrid, Road, Mountain, BMX bikes.
“It’s a better presentation,” he said. “We can stock things we couldn’t before, like enclosed bike baskets for puppies.” And paddleboards, Mr. Ngo said. “There’s so much I still want to do,” Mr. Ngo said. But for now, he’s happy with the homelike feel
and the products he carries.

“I love it — I want one,” Aliza Corder said the other day after trying out in the Reutershan parking lot the ElliptiGO outdoor elliptical bike that the irrepressible Khanh Ngo is selling out of his Park Place sports store in the village.
“It’s so amazingly well thought out,” said Ngo, the sole seller of ElliptiGOs “between Brooklyn and Montauk. . . . I haven’t used my road bike since I got it."

"Khanh Sports Takes over Old Springs Service Station"
The history of the Springs General Store dates back to 1844. It was originally a post office and throughout much of the 1900s service and gas station operated on site. The store was always a gathering place for the Springs community and for artists like Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner, who lived just up the street, and continues to be today.
