NY'ers: wanted, west side bike shops
Hello all, I live up in the Riverdale section of the Bronx and commute occasionally down the Hudson River Trail. What I would like to know is if anyone knows of bikes shops along that route in case something happens on trips that can't be fixed on the spot. I know of Sids well now it is Tread bike shop on 230th/Broadway and their second shop @ 225 Dyckman st. near the end of the river trail. After that all I know of is Gotham Bikes on W. Broadway/ Reade St. and Canal St. bikes on 6th Ave./Canal St. What i need now is a list of shops in between near the Hudson River -- Thanks.
231 W 96th St, 663-7531
1311 Lexington Ave, 427-4450
360 W 47th St, 581-4500
546 Ave of the Americas
430 Columbus Ave, 724-2350
There are plenty of others.
Get a copy of that free bicycle map at any random store that has them in stock.
I saw some in the window at the Dyckman Tread this Evening.
There is a list of bikeshops in there.
yeah, the cycling map shows all the shops in the whole city. that will be helpful.
i live right by the tread on dyckman. they are fairly decent and will get you in while you wait if you have something that needs to get done by a mech.....but, if you have anything that can wait, i'd let it wait until you have a good mechanic. i'm not so sure they are the best in there....
toga bikes, gotham bikes's sister shop, is right on the west side.
110 WEST END AVE
further downtown, A Bicycle Shop is on 14th St. and 9th Ave,
not as close to the river, but not that far, either.
i'll second this one, great shop, nice guys, just go up the stairs near the trump towers and then your there.
