Ask Prolly: What Bike Shops Do I Visit in NYC?

As a continuation of this series, here’s the latest question to come across my inbox. In one form or another, this is probably the most asked question I receive as a cyclist living and riding in NYC:

“I’m in New York on the 20th and I’m keen to look at some bike shops that deal with the whole track bike world. I want to hopefully pick up a new track frame, new courier bag, gloves etc. and just check out what’s new and going on in the culture of Track bikes in NYC. So, if it’s not too much trouble, I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction with a list of shops to go to, and just general must see’s and do’s?”

Here’s a list of bike shops that I frequent by borough:

Brooklyn:
Affinity Cycles
Post Bikes
Bike Doc
B’s Bikes
Bushwick Bikes
Outlier Showroom (open Saturdays)
King Kog
R&A
Brooklyn Bike & Board

Manhattan:
Chari & Co
NYC Velo
Bike Works
Rapha Cycling Club
Chrome (new store opening soon. 238 Mulberry Street)
Continuum Cycles
Bicycle Habitat

New Jersey:
Grove St. Bicycles

Of course there are tons more but these are the ones I’ve had a personal experience at. I’ve probably missed a few, so politely remind me in the comments!
