One of Philadelphia's largest bike stores, Breakaway Bikes pampers pedalers of all experience levels with an array of accessories, bikes, and services complemented by a cycle-savvy staff. Wheel-less wanderers can find a compatible cruiser amid the selection of colorful and powerful bikes, which brings together road, hybrid, mountain, and urban models from top brands. Outfit your two-wheeler with an Xlab torpedo-mount hydration station ($44.99), or outfit yourself in gloves ($19.99–$29.99) to prevent blisters and shorts ($59.99–$224.99) to prevent derriére dilapidation. A plethora of bike parts, tools, and locks ($9.99–$89.99) keep rides fully functional and safe from jealous thieves on run-down unicycles.
Breakaway Bikes’ efficient and experienced mechanics offer maladjusted cycles a variety of tune-up packages, starting with the Soup or Salad ($39.99). This basic tune-up includes an adjustment and lubrication of derailleurs and brakes, inflation of tires, lubrication of the chain, cables, and frame pivot points, and a thorough inspection to ensure each foot-powered conveyance is safe, functioning properly, and tame enough for life in an average human garage. Professional coaching ($40/hour–$299/month) and fitting ($75+) services help handlebar jockeys speed past opponents without resorting to common cycling sneakery, such as adding an extra tire or installing a turbo-powered banana seat.
- Always seems to me that the staff goes above and beyond the initial request to make sure all riders know as much about their bike as possible. I have been nothing but satisfied with this place. – Benjamin B., 3/2/11
- I have never been disappointed with any aspect of the Breakaway experience, whether it be labor, service, sales, or training. The staff is courteous, patient, and knowledgeable, and the training programs are indispensable. – mjf85, Citysearch
