Best of Boston

2007 Best Bike Shop


A beacon for tattooed bicycle messengers and hard-core triathletes, Wheelworks also welcomes weekend pedalers and the merely bike-curious. The knowledgeable folks behind the counter will not only set you up with a sweet ride or fix the one you’ve got, but also dispense sage advice on cool local places for tooling around, two-wheel style. Or on as many wheels as you want—Wheelworks specializes in custom-built options for those who refuse to buy off the rack.
