'We sell what we ride' – a fitting motto for this refreshingly unpretentious bike emporium. Once inside, you may not immediately realise that that's what it is: the neon ceiling lights and posters of bygone celebrities on the walls are more redolent of an old garage than a modern shop. But if the décor is on the shabby side, there's nothing rusty about the bikes on sale – even the second-hand ones, which start at a very reasonable €180. Also of note are a range of swish off-road bikes from Holland (a godsend for anyone who's ever tried to navigate some of Paris's more dilapidated roads on two wheels), and a selection of folding bikes for those who like to mix cycling with public transport. Like any self-respecting cycle shop, Bicloune also provides repairs and upgrades, all priced as reasonably as its stock. An infinitely more attractive option than those bland, overpriced outlets currently swamping the bike market.
