Which reminds me, the Daily News did an interview with Adeline’s top mechanic, Frank Wruk. Yes, not just a place for fancy dutch bikes and helmets, Adeline Adeline is also a full service bike shop.
The Big Apple belongs to the bicycles. According to Transportation Alternatives, cycling is the fastest-growing way to get around town â€” and the cityâ€™s new $1 bicycle parking stations are making NYC even more bike-friendly. Inspired to spin your wheels? Tribeca mechanic and bike enthusiast Frank Wruk shares his tricks of the trade to ensure everyone from the training-wheels set to daredevil stuntmasters gets a smooth ride.
Where did you learn to build and fix bikes?
I grew up riding BMX bicycles, and I would ride them very hard and break them. So I would have to go and buy new parts, and I just kind of learned to install them myself and make the bikes work better. I love Âtuning bikes and making them roll for as long as they can.
What kind of damage do bikes in the Big Apple suffer most?
Flat tires are the most common repairs. In the city, the wheels take the most beating. There are so many potholes, cracks in the road, sidewalk aprons, things like that. In New York, we also have lots of stop-and-go traffic, so the brakes go through a lot of wear and tear, too.
