Best of Boston

2001 Best Bike Shop, Repair

Broadway Bicycle School

“If you want something done right, do it yourself” is a nifty aphorism, but it’s also true that we could all use a little help sometimes. The versatile grease monkeys at this bike co-op offer options for all levels of hands-on experience. Stand-and-tool rental runs $9 per hour, an unflappable mechanic to talk you through your repair costs $18 per hour, and if you just can’t be bothered, they’ll tune your ride to perfection at reasonable rates. If you really want to get your fingernails dirty, the school offers classes in repair and wheel building.
