2000 Best Bike Shop

ATA Cycles

Okay, purists, so ATA doesn’t carry Trek or Cannondale—those glam brands have been cornered by the store’s bigger local rivals. But the bikes it does sell are among the best: KHS, Breezer, Giant, and Cinelli. The store’s move to a new location a few blocks from its old address has also given it the space to add the hot new Look carbon-fiber bike, an alternative to higher-priced titanium models. And while ATA sponsors mountain bike racer Matt O’Keefe at the pro-level, it is going after the road-biking market with high-end frames and accessories. It also sells the latest rage: fixed-gear bikes, with no rear brakes or derailleurs.
