I hate to admit it, but I'm kinda from tacoma.
north tacoma is really pretty, very hilly, almost completely removed from the pulp mill smell (which originates in fife, not tacoma) but also the most expensive area of town. by a bunch.
6th Ave is as close to counter-cultural as it gets for that town.
hilltop is cheeeap and full of amazing victorian houses to rent/buy for cheap as long as you dont have kids. it gets the brunt of the smell which honestly, you only get probably 3 days out of 7.
I lived in lincoln during my teenage years and it was totally fine and very accessable to thing things I wanted to go to. (mostly the tacoma mall transit center so I could take busses to seattle).
My advice is to live near wright park on either the hilltop or stadium side.
it's really pretty right there, very historic, SUPER close to downtown, usable road access, awesome transit, the park is beautiful, relativly flat(ish), and still pretty affordable.
it's basically right on the line of north and south T.
I havent a clue about bike shops. It's been years.
if you have any specific questions about areas or whatever, feel free to hit me up.
