Just in time for May, other wise known as bike month, Brooklyn Based has a list of its borough’s friendliest bike shops. Time to unlock your ride from your hallway or dig it out from the tarp out front of your stoop and take it to the nearest shop for a tune-up. Why not buy a bike of your very own this summer? BB makes it easier and less intimidating with a nice write up of shops that take out the snobbery and actually make the experience more accessible to their customers.
In no particular order they highlight some bigger operations like Ride Brooklyn with two locations. There is also some smaller places you may not even know about like Bed-Stuys the Bike Slug and Red Hook’s Dog Day Cyclery.
