Ciel Bikes (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
With a comprehensive selection of something-for-everyone bikes ranging from comfy, upright commuter bikes to more serious single-speed and road bikes, Ciel’s selection focuses on new styles from Giant and Biria ($360–$3,200). Manager Nick Bender rewards curious shoppers with a wealth of information about bike styles and fits, and he himself admits he often talks until you don’t want to listen. Pro tip: While the shop doesn’t deal in previously owned two-wheelers, it does sell off its rental fleet at the end of every season, meaning you can pick up an expertly maintained, city-friendly bike that’s only been used for about a year at a much cheaper cost ($150 to $250).
