Chelsea Bicycles


130 W. 26th St.,
New York,
United States,

Not the place to pick up a $100 Schwinn, this tiny Chelsea bike shop (and gear-head hang-out) focuses on more high end options. Ground zero for cycling enthusiasts, the shop packs its inventory in from the floor to the ceiling, but it also offers soup-to-nuts repairs. Former Mexican racing champion Rafael Vazquez and his team of in-house mechanics do everything from welding and repair to master frame building. A great way to explore the city, bicycle rentals are available by the day or by the hour.
