Bicycle Station owner Mike Rodriguez is a veteran racer and mechanic who’s been working with bikes for more than 40 years—and with each visit to the Fort Greene shop, that immense store of knowledge gets shared with the customer. With an unpretentious eye toward individualized service and competitively priced repairs (an all-inclusive tune-up goes for a hard-to-beat $49), the shop’s stock focuses on affordable used ($150–$500) and new ($350–$5,000) road bikes, fitness bikes and hipster-cherished single-speeds from Jamis and Land Shark, among others. After opened his first store in Park Slope in 1992, he moved on to Prospect Heights before landing at his current location, and Rodriguez’s deft customer service is matched only by his mechanical expertise.
