  • American Cyclery
    Consistently considered one of America’s best cycling shops, this Cole Valley/Upper Haight mainstay is perfectly suited for getting a set of wheels tuned up to cruise around Golden Gate Park, which is (thankfully) just downhill. A neighborhood presence since racer Oscar Juner opened it in 1941, American Cyclery stocks the full spectrum of bikes, from Bianchi road racers to fixed-gear street rides, all spiffed up and shiny beneath black-and-white pictures of the founder’s glory days. Unpretentious and ever-helpful, American Cyclery might smell a bit like spent grease but its efforts to install a public parklet out front and a plaza in the vacant lot next door reveal its commitment to a safe, clean city. Complete with lots of bicycles, of course.

  • Mojo Bicycle Cafe
    Part café, part bar, part…bicycle shop? Mojo Bicycle Café might raise the eyebrows of pedestrians passing by, but critics can’t get enough of it. Gayot praises Mojo as a “popular haunt for hipsters and bicyclists” that sticks to largely local, organic, and fair trade ingredients. And Daily Candy points out that “the nice guys in charge…all care about city riders,” since they happily equip even amateur cyclists with quality bikes, accessories, and organic wool and cotton athletic wear. Customers seem to share reviewers’ sentiments, flocking to the orange row home in which Mojo Bicycle Café resides. In the café, sip Ritual or De La Paz Coffee, snack on a sandwich, or take a glass of beer or wine to a sidewalk table. Back in the shop, hand over wheels for tune-ups or repairs, or test out a new bicycle from Jamis, Breezer, or other acclaimed manufacturers.

  • Refried Cycles
    Watch your head and elbows when you step inside Refried Cycles, the Castro bicycle shop that’s bursting with hubs and spokes, as well as a friendly canine. Avid cyclists love this place for their integrity and passion, but the less-obsessive rider won’t be repelled by snobby attitudes like at so many other neighborhood bike shops. This isn’t the shop for high-end, fresh-from-the-factory bikes, but for tune-ups on your older model or digging up a used bike with lots of personality, Refried Cycles is a great place to start. For most locals, there’s no need to scour the internet for your next set of wheels, when Refried offers so many quality second-hand rides that have been rehabbed and ride as good as new.

  • Fresh Air Bicycles
    Right in the thick of San Francisco’s Pacific Heights sits Fresh Air Bicycles. Despite the hilly neighborhood’s somewhat unfriendly roads, and the traffic-clogged Divisadero Street that serves as a main artery for all points elsewhere, this sunny shop is dead set on providing outstanding bikes for anyone interested in a little pedal power. The storefront is run by a couple of lifelong racers with an affinity for rehabbing old rides and teaching others the skills to take up tuning their own ride to perfection. The knowledgeable team can be a bit intimidating at first, but once you’ve gotten some of the lingo down, it’s obvious the kids hanging around at Fresh Air are only talking about bikes, because they love the ride so much. With a la cart repair prices and plenty of gear to get you started, you might find yourself leaving Fresh Air with a rebuilt ride yourself.
