More than just funny sandwich board messages and friendly faces, the crew members at Bike Slug are knowledgeable, informative, and will affordably fix your bike.
Planning to cycle in NYC? Like any good bike shop, Bike Slug repairs more bikes than it sells. They do have a small curated selection of bikes for sale, but if you’d prefer something used, we’d recommend to stop in for advice on what kind of bikes to look for (and what to avoid), find your bike used on craigslist, and then stop back in for tune-ups / maintenance / gear.
Cost: A flat fix costs $18.30 including the tube; a full tune up costs $79 on a geared bike and $59 for a single speed; and a brake adjustment runs around $20. Pump your tires for free during open hours.
Where: 1050 Bedford Ave (between Lafayette Ave and Clifton Pl), Brooklyn - walk from Our Place in 2 minutes
