Red Lantern Bicycles


Time Out says

Both bike and beer lovers will enjoy this hybrid shop, café and bar. A liquor license means customers can sip on PBR ($3), Founders Centennial IPA, Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner and Sixpoint Sweet Action ($5 each) while admiring the shop’s mural of a crimson lantern held aloft by a flame-haired woman. If you’re riding after your visit, grab a coffee ($2.50) made from beans roasted in-house and nosh on a small selection of snacks such as croissants ($2.50) and muffins ($2.75). On the other side of a partition made from old bicycle wheels, peruse a selection of new bikes from brands such as Torker, Xtracycle Radish and Surly ($396–$1,749), converted old-school ten-speeds ($300–$500) and custom-built rides ($400–$900). DIY enthusiasts can take bike-repair classes on Sunday evenings from 7 to 9pm—the first and fifth Sundays of the month focus on general maintenance for beginners ($25), the second on brakes and gears ($40), the third on bearings ($40), and the fourth on wheel truing ($40). Occasional wheel-building tutorials are also offered; check the website for the full schedule, or e-mail classes@redlanternbicycles.com to book.
