Bay Ridge Bicycle World - Bikeshops, Brooklyn, York

DESCRIPTION

Bay Ridge Bicycle World, established in 1978, is a family run business. We carry a large selection of mountain, road, triathlon, bmx, children, and exercise bikes. If we do not have it we can get it for you! We are open 7 days a week with expert mechanics and sales staff year round who also race mountain and road bikes for our store.

Our expert staff makes sure you are properly sized along with giving you a gear demonstration on your bicycle. If necessary, we would even go to the extent of riding alongside you until you thoroughly understand and become one with your bicycle. No one comes close to the customer service we provide! Test rides are available when you present us with a picture I.D ( drivers license, passport etc.) coupled with a credit card of the same name. To put it in two words..."WE CARE" !!

We also ship bicycles nationwide and internationally. Our experienced staff assembles each bicycle, making sure it is fine tuned to our approval. This allows for a quick and easy 10 minute assembly when receiving the bicycle.

small but packed with all you need for dh biking. You don't get crazy trying to choose the best dh bike you need: the ones you find there are the best selection anyway. Good selection of road bikes too if you are one of those who love to train on the flat

Customer Service

straight, honest, no fooling around. Don't try to talk about price: the one you get from Patricia or Anthony will be the best price on earth anyway! They know what they do, and if they don't they tell you.
Since the selection of models is not huge be sure you know exactly the size you need

I bought there two bikes already and I came the whole way from France! They help you with all packaging and "bike oldening" issues for shipment to Europe.

I frequented this store when I lived in Brooklyn. I now live in CT and haven't found anything nearly as good. For that matter I don't think I have ever been to a better bike store. Aside from the huge selection, the staff know what they're doing. They won't sell you an expensive ride if you don't need it. I bought a Marin there, rode it a few times, then brought it back for a tune-up. They asked how I liked it, I said it was ok. The woman in charge told me that she would have something for me if I could wait a few hours. I walked out of there with a Giant OCR3 Carbon. And this was on a Saturday, when the shop was busy as hell. The best staff and selection I have come across. Mountain, road, bmx, commuters, they have it all.
And they sent me a thank you note after I bought the bike from them.

Customer Service

Great people. They know what they are doing and back up what they sell.

Bay Ridge bikes has a descent selection of high end bikes, road and mountain, especially for Brooklyn, but like all bike shops they cannot compete with the Internet for price. Most of the stock is last year’s stuff if not older.

Customer Service

Customer Service: None to speak of!!!
Some one else wrote “Patrice is a riot... stereotypical, Marlboro smoking, loud, and abrasive Italian woman” That’s sums it up, but there’s another word for it, she’s a B!*CH .
Its bike shop owners like her that give bike shops a bad name. Not very knowledgeable about the product, always trying to pawn off some bike or junk part she’s got in the store.
She sold my friend who’s 6 foot 3, a medium size frame mountain bike with a set back seat post to compensate.

Similar Products Used:

The mechanic in the back, who might be Patrice’s son, is a nice guy though, and a good wrench, but mechanical work, like in all bike shops is expensive, even for a minor repair or adjustment.

I found this shop through the internet and wanted to have a back up just in case my main shop wasn't available and they proved themselves to be worth the 45 minute trip. They have Eyecandy and and sweat supply of Mountain bikes with nice ranges in price, when I am in Brooklyn they are my #1 choice. Anthony and his mother make things happen in that store and get on whatever your looking for if they don't already have it in the shop which will be rare but they are on getting it pronto. They have beaten prices on highend pieces no one else could match Big Ups to Brooklyns best Bike shop.

Customer Service

Can't feel anymore comfortable in a bike shop than this, very knoweledgeable and well stocked. Also a healthy sense of humor, I wish them more years in this business because if it weren't for businesses like this in Brooklyn, we who ride mountain bikes would have one less great outlet for our demanding and rewarding hobby.

Looking to purchase Chris King Hubs, then have them professionally laced to your rims... this is your place. Looking for a small size Santa Cruz VP free in orange... they have it. Ti XC Merlin frame, Kona Freeride bike, Norco hardtail dirt jumper, Pro level BMX, 16 lb Road bike... this is your place.

Customer Service

Bay Ridge Bikes may be small but it's packed to the ceiling with high-end bikes and components. And if they don't have it in stock they can get it within a week. Best of all, their prices are almost as good as the web retailers.

The mechanics are very competent. The can handle 98% of any repair or work. If they can't fix it, they'll have it done by the manufacturer and shipped back to the shop within a week.
