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:
Outlier Showroom (open Saturdays)
Brooklyn Bike & Board
Chari & Co
Rapha Cycling Club
Chrome (new store opening soon. 238 Mulberry Street)
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!
