This shop boasts sleek frames, colorful components and a friendly, knowledgeable (and dreamy) staff. Buy a bike, a kit, a watter bottle—they even sell small-batch cold brew and some pretty rockin' socks and patches. There's no bike snobbery here—come in for repairs, parts, or to get outfitted with a brand new ride. And speaking of rides, the shop organizes 'em regularly, and there's often beer and pizza in the mix—enquire within for details.
Bike shops abound in LA, which is great news for a city that sees so much car traffic. If you're thinking of making the switch from four to two wheels, we've got you covered. The following bike shops cater to every biker's need, whether you're new to the sport, an avid cycler or just looking to finally participate in CicLAvia. Aside from bikes, at each bike shop you'll find all necessary accessories, from helmets and locks to bags and reflective clothing. Most shops also offer tune-ups and repairs akin to those you'd find at a co-op, and many organize community events as well. Come for a bike, stay for the buds—and at least one bike shop, even brews.
