Even with the ever-increasing (or declining?) number of cyclists on New York City streets these days, finding a good bike shop is like finding an expensive needle in a haughty haystack. But these recommendations will steer you in the right direction for best service, free workshops, and how to avoid the worst service money can buy.
Best Workshops: Times Up!
If you’re an avid cyclist, sooner or later you’re going to have to take matters into your own hands and fix the many flats, loose brakes, and wobbly wheels that will inevitably cross your path (we know those potholes certainly aren’t helping). Times Up! offers the tools and know-how with their free, weekly bike repair workshops. On top of that, they host monthly rides, parties, and direct action events to better the cycling community.
