best bike repair shop in nyc?

i just started riding a few weeks ago, and last night i flew off my bike and mangled the front end. anyone have recommendations for a good bike repair shop? i know bicycle station is really good, but i also heard they take forever... i'm in greenpoint, but i can bring it anywhere in brooklyn or manhattan to get it fixed.

thanks

You didn't say what kind of bike, but if it's a decent bike, try R&A Cycle on 5th Ave in Park Slope.

Though if it's not a decent bike, the good folks at R&A will surely laugh at you, chastise you for riding a cheap bike, deride you and all that you stand for, and then kick you in the pants when you turn around to leave their store. Then they'll laugh at you some more.

If it's a decent bike they'll still laugh at you, but they'll take your money. And maybe not kick you.

Bicycle habitat. One test of a LBS is ask if they can cut spokes.

+1; Oh and FYI: Decent >$4000

I've used both Conrad's (Tudor City) and Toga (West Side); been happy with both. If I want personal service and pay a bit more, I'll go to Conrad's. If I simply need a overhaul tune-up, I'll go with Toga.
