Bloomfield Bicycle & Repair traces its history back to 1950, when the first shop opened in Bloomfield. Nowadays, with the addition of the Bicycle Cellar, it's a two-shop operation. And although the bikes and accessories are considerably different than the gear that first showed up in the shop windows, its core values?attentive customer service and thorough bike knowledge?are still the norm. The inventory of new bikes and accessories includes top brands such as Trek, Bontrager, and Pearl Izumi, and a dedicated staff is committed to keeping existing wheels on the road with tune-ups, repairs, and inspirational bike whispering.
For more than 50 years, the Wolfs have run Bloomfield Bicycle & Repair Shop, outfitting cyclists with the bikes best suited to their customers’ needs such as Schwinn mountain and Jamis street bikes. They can even pair up couples with tandem bikes and the pedal-weary with electric bikes. Besides slipping cyclists into bike shoes, gloves, and vests, they also mend and maintain all kinds of bikes, from traditional two-wheelers to electric bikes and scooters.
Berkshire Bike and Board stables a crew of bicycle-savvy mechanics, who assemble shipped parts from brands such as Giant, Scott, and Felt into road-worthy cycles. Sales staff call on their own riding passions to help customers peruse the stock of hybrid, mountain, road, and children's bikes and select the vessel most suited to their needs. Patrons can then take their preferred model on a test ride to ensure that the bike is a good fit and harbors no ill feelings toward the family automobile. A lifetime of free tune-ups accompanies each of the shop’s cycles, and an array of aerodynamic gear can keep bikers safe and comfortable. Temporary cyclists can also borrow from an onsite rental fleet. Men’s and women’s snowboards and snowshoes round out the selection to help customers conquer the mountains in any season.
