I've been asked for my opinions on Brooklyn bike shops. Unfortanately, I can't answer the question.

A co-worker of mine lives in the heart of Brooklyn somewhere between Park Slope and Bed Stuy. He would like to get recreational bikes for his family - nothing fancy but not big box breakdown bikes and establish a relationship with a local bike shop as his child grows. My co-worker has great personal style on a limited budget and a limited commitment to cycling, but is looking for value and durability.

Their riding will consist of rides on various bike paths, parks and the occasional event type rides.

Any suggestions?

Brooklyn bike shop

I use Bicycle Station located at 560 Vanderbilt Ave. in Prospect Heights. It is owned and run by Mike Rodriguez. He is an excellent mechanic and sells used and new bikes. A really nice guy and very honest. The only down side is that he get really really busy in the summer months.

I would reccommend checking out Mr. C's.

Been around a while and good selection. Took my 7 year old daughter in and she was treated like she was buying a 2k road bike.

Recycle A Bicycle

I work at RAB, check out the website for more info on the shop. We offer inexpensive reconditioned bikes that are suitable for city riding (and the profits go to a good cause).
