This full-service bicycle shop meets the needs of serious cyclists and casual riders with a bevy of repair services and cycle-centric products. All bikes receive the attention to detail they require with Volpe's six-month guarantee on all services, and a one to two year guarantee on most products (except flat fixes and products that have been abused in ways deemed inappropriate, such as turning your two-wheeled pedal pod into a birthday-party piñata). From March 1 through November 15, a full tune-up is $60, while a basic adjustment is $40. The rest of the year prices are $45 and $30, respectively. Volpe's bicycle psychologists fix self-conscious flat tires ($14), adjust finicky brakes ($15), true nefarious wheels ($15-$25), discipline delinquent derailleurs ($15), and more. Full overhauls start at $160.
Fairmount Bicycles keeps cyclists spinning with an overabundance of new and refurbished bikes, accessories, and performance-enhancing services. Its certified staff of two-wheeler technicians can ably tighten bolts and spiff up spokes with a full tune-up. They'll perform safety adjustments on all brakes, bottom brackets, headsets, and gears that have been shaken by oversized potholes or intimidated by a passing penny-farthing. Rims then receive a minor wheel truing before a full bike wipe-down leaves chains and potential alibis feeling squeaky clean. All labor is included in this service, though bikes requiring replacement parts may incur an additional charge.
In 1933, the founders of Keswick Cycle opened their doors with a common goal in mind: to make each visitor feel like a part of the family. Almost 80 years later, a staff of avid cyclists and triathletes maintains the same friendly vibe at all three locations, meanwhile stocking an assortment of bikes and accessories. Bicycles from Cannondale, Specialized, Electra, and other big brands conquer myriad terrains, from roads and triathlon courses to mountain trails mucky with discarded cooking oil. Tires, apparel, and other accessories round out the inventory, situated around the shop's central hub, the services department. Here, factory-trained mechanics tune up or overhaul any type of bike or shopping carts masquerading as bikes. These same experts fit athletes for competition at the triathlon studio and, in their spare time, lend a hand to local charities.

Cardio-heavy Les Mills BODYCOMBAT classes aim to get hearts racing all while toning muscle and improving self-confidence.
After opening this friendly neighborhood bike shop in 2005, Freeride Sports owner Pasquale Bocchicchio quickly expanded his enterprise to include everything from motorcross to skateboarding to snowboarding, making it his mission to spread the soul-freeing, stress-abating power of extreme sports across the Haddonfield community. Tote a traditional tandem, mountain bike, or BMX cycle to pay a visit to in-house mechanic Perry Buffo who can help whip it into shape in time for summer rides or its sojourn into Italian cinema. A Basic Tune ($44.99) covers adjustments to the front and rear derailleurs and brakes, and includes a thorough safety check and bath, whereas a Basic Plus Tune ($69.99) tacks on a truing of both wheels for smoother street coasting. Cycles suffering from creaky joints benefit from a Power Tune ($99.99) where a greasing of both wheels or the stem and bottom bracket will help keep it limber and prevent steaks from sticking to its spokes. A Power Tune Plus ($149.99) sees the whole bike broken down and rebuilt into a stronger, more spry, handsomer version of itself with fresh grease applied to every pivot point. Or, take the total velocipede transformation one step further with a complete refurbishing ($199), which sees the two-wheeler sent out for repainting and returns it completely rebuilt with absolutely no memory of its former life as a CIA operative.
