This Philadelphia Bike Shop Is Not Like the Others August 25 2016
When we work on a bike whether it's a tune up, a new bike build, or fabricating a custom bicycle we put our all into it. Even if that means lying on your coworkers skateboard to get to that hard to reach spot. Our mechanics are very knowledgeable when it comes to bicycle repair but they're also creative and always come up with a solution. We're lucky to have the tools in our workshop as well as our frame shop to fix just about anything. Not every bike shop can do that. Big, heavy bikes like the Babboe City cargo bike that Carlyssa is building (see photo) are easily hoisted up with our EVT workstands. Cracks in frames can be repaired in our welding shop. You don't have to toss away your beloved and broken-in Brooks saddle because a rail broke. We have the parts to fix it. If you can't find what you need from our vast stock of city and cargo bikes we have the capability to build you a custom model. And no other bike shop in Philadelphia can do that.

Bike in a Box April 13 2016
So you've always wanted to climb Alpe d'Huez like Lance. Well, the only way (at least the only legitimate way) you're gonna do that is if you take your bike with you to France. We'll box it up the right way so it arrives in the same condition as when it leaves. We'll make sure the frame and mechanical parts are wrapped securely and the box is sealed properly. You can either pick it up yourself, schedule FedEx or UPS to pick it up, or let us schedule the shipping for you through Bikeflights. Or maybe you found a classic Concorde on Ebay and need a professional to reassemble the bike. We can do that too. Bring it in to us or arrange to have the bike shipped to the shop. Prices start at $50 (kids bikes are less.) Call for details.
