Warm, friendly staff? Fughedaboudit! This is the quintessential old school BROOKLYN bike shop. Despite the name, this isn't so much Brooklyn Heights as downtown Brooklyn. Now that the neighborhood has become all gentrified, I'm sure there are a lot of new residents moving in who need to be reminded that this ISN'T the UPPER EAST SIDE!
The guys here are BLUNT but honest. The prices are reasonable and fair. If you need a good city bike, a new fork put in, or just your tire changed, this is the place.
So those bellyaching about the gruff attitude, grow some thicker skin and get a sense of humor. Appreciate it for what it is: Authentic Brooklyn.
Pros: Old School, Good prices, Open Sundays
Cons: Rough Demeanor, Closed Mondays
