Where to buy cheap but decent bikes in NYC?

Posted on
  • ok so i fly to NYC with work on wednesday, i'll be touring the whole of the states for 6 weeks. i want to buy a cheapish bike, pref 2nd hand. don't tell me craig's list, i don't have time to mess about. wanna just turn up, buy and ride away.

    is there a good NYC forum? searched on here and didn't come up with much.

    i know of the trackstar shop but that's out of my budget for a bike that i'm prolly not gonna use for more than 6 weeks...

    any help would be appreciated.....

  • there's a 2nd hand bike shop on east 6th st next to A1 records, think it's called re cycle.

  • Not bike related but make sure you go to 5-points in Queens - top graffiti & great view of Manhattan from the top of the building.

  • When you get here you can try MetroBicycles which should have some really cheap SE singlespeeds for like $179 ready to ride. They also have a range of other brands that make FGs like Raleigh, Giant, Fuji, etc. in the $400-$600 range.

    send me a shopping list after the 14th of december and i'll buy it during the last week

  • Recycle a Bicycle is a great shop! They have a couple shops in NYC and have a good selection on bikes for really decent prices. From kids bikes to vintage racers. They are also a great organization that is doing tons for educating people about riding. If you buy a bike from them the money is going toward a really great thing.
