Bikeworks NYC

Pin it button big

Ride, don't run. Two separate people just clued us in to Bikeworks (www.bikecult.com) within 24 hrs. Despite the frigid weather today, we were glad, because we are in the market for a bike. Yeah. This is an endless resource. Just check out the Chain Wheel Archive. MGR

Severn Says: I found this online - it's an archive of curious antique bicycle parts. Maybe you need to be a bike nut to appreciate it, but isn't there something terribly wabi-sabi about an obscure old French Traction-Avant chain ring?

Jim says: Bikeworks is the best bike store in nYC because they have an appreciation for junky old bikes and don't just tell you to get a new bike. They welded together my grandma Dutch bike back together for $20. Wow. These guys are great.

Last time I went there he spent 40 minutes working on my derailer, got it working perfectly and only charged me $10.
