Winner of Rapid Growth Media’s Best Longstanding Business award, The Freewheeler Bike Shop has tinkered with all types of recreational and competitive two-wheelers for more than three decades. Customers can surrender metal-framed friends to capable hands for thorough tune-ups, during which a tender cycle sage will alleviate the frames and drive-train systems of unwanted grime until all the joints move as smoothly as a slinky slathered in margarine. Adjustments align the brakes, shifting, hubs, tires, fasteners, headsets, and bottom brackets, and wheels are trued to ensure linear journeys. Before the cycles float off on their inaugural test jumps over kiddie pools, a tech greases the chains and outfits the vehicles with water-bottle cages and accompanying bottles.
Alternatively, visitors can dive safely and ergonomically into Freewheeler’s cache of biking gear. Patrons can steer clear of nocturnal mail carriers by illuminating them with Blackburn bike lights ($10+) and remain prepared for any collision in sleek Bell helmets ($30+). The advanced Japanese technology of CatEye cycle computers ($20+) motivates ever-more-ambitious rides by displaying data such as speed, distance, and calorie consumption in large, clear type, and Fox gloves ($25+) aerodynamically shield hands from bitter breezes as speed increases.
