good bike shops and NY tour
Posted October 31st, 2011 - 4:36 pm by from Sao Paulo, Brazil (Permalink)
Hi,

I'll be in New York next week and want to buy some accessories that are hard to find here in Brazil.

Can anyone tell me a good comprehensive store in Manhattan? The most important thing I'm looking for is a Dahon bag and some spare parts from CatEye that have gone missing with my stolen bike.

Also, I'm keen on taking a bike tour. If anyone is up for it I can rent a bike and we'll go together.

Hi Fernando,

You can try a few different bike stores.
Toga, Bicycle Habitat, nycwheels.com are pretty big. Though if you need specialty parts, you might be more successful to look online or go through Dahon directly.

Drop me a line when you are in NY. I might be able to meet one morning for a tour of the city.

If not the lower west side battery park to upper west side is a nice ride

You can get a free bike map at most bike stores too!

Hope to see you in NY!
David

Hi! maybe you can help me, I'm looking for a good place to buy a fixie bike in New York. My father is going to NYC by the beginning of November and I would love to use this opportunity to buy a nice bike from US. I'm from Argentina and here bikes are really expensive, and there's no variety.
