The Avenue Bicycle Station

When bikes fall ill, they can drag themselves over to The Avenue Bicycle Station, who not only sells bikes but repairs and restores young and old two-wheelers alike. Owner John Hall and his employee Roger—whose shop is an outlet for Schwinn, Mongoose, and GT velocipedes, Star Trac spinner bikes and KHS, Manhattan, Free Agent, and Sun bicycles—have the chops and tools to fix up even the most busted of bicycles while extending the legacy of former store owners, Scott and Hanna Kelsey. Their pick-up and drop-off service lends a helping hand to busy riders on Tuesdays and Thursdays. To aid home bike technicians and entrepreneurs looking to invent Bike 2.0, they’ve amassed piles and piles of hard-to-find and vintage parts in a special salvage yard.


Reviews

My bike was due for some maintenance so I figured I'd give them a shot. The service was excellent and my bike rides as good as new.

Great little bike shop. The owner, Scott, is extremely civic-minded and environmentally-minded, in addition to being a very nice guy.
