At Innovation Bike Shop, we take pride in our craft.
Below are what some of our customers had to say on Google Reviews:
The problem with most bike shops is "bike shop attitude."
When my 40+ bulky frame enters, all I get is snickering, 'smart' remarks like "you want a comfort bike," they show me
all these seats with 2 inches of foam, joke about if I want a shopping basket, etc. They don't care that I've been riding
for 25 years; they are more interested in their jokes. I guess their problem is that although they do have jokes, they
won't get my cash, which is what business is all about. So, I was delighted to discover Innovation Bike Shop where
there is NO such attitude. Leo and Camie are not only both great guys with serious experience, but they sold me the bike
I wanted to have. Sure, they made suggestions about which components to have and which not, but they did it respectfully
and their ideas were great. The shop carries a great line of products for urban bikers. No matter if you are doing interval
training in Central Park (when the boys in blue are not watching) or simply a street rider, you will be happy here. They
truly do INNOVATE and came up with some great solutions. They know the city and what is important for NYC riders. They
cannot do anything about the police, but they will tune you up to outrun them! I bought a Cannondale Bad Boy with disk
brakes because it allows you to swap out wheel sets (700 X 23 mm for the road and 26 X 2" knobbies for the snow or trail).
With all that wheel swapping, the disks required a bit of tweaking. The guys at Innovation Bike Shop were happy to do all
that and FAST. I also gave them my 15 year-old GT hard-tail to tune up; that bike has been through thick and thin with me,
from taxi collisions to 0-degree spills on the ice by the river in January. So, it has a few twists and curves in it that
were not part of the original design. Nonetheless, Julio and Camie got that running so well, I almost wondered why I bought
the Cannondale on my ride home. Altogether, this is a great bike shop located close by to Central Park, Columbia University,
and Riverside Park. Their prices are fine and the work they do is superb. They rent bikes too, so avoid the lines at the
tourist-traffic places further downtown."
fast, friendly, high quality work
Moved to the neighborhood a year ago and these guys have done all of the work on my family's bikes ever since. When looking
for a new bike I examined their selection, rode a couple, etc. When I finally bought elsewhere (a bike they don't carry) and
brought it in for work they were enthusiastic. You'll get no bike shop attitude with these guys. Their technician is highly
dedicated to his work, loves bikes, and is extremely friendly to boot. Highly recommended to anyone in the neighborhood.

slightly out of the way location, close to a less traveled part of the park, which is still beautifully kept, and actually, much greener than many sections...

I love bringing my bike here. They do good work for pretty standard prices. The guys are all really helpful. I went in today to have my fender re-attached...

I cracked the carbon frame of my Specialized in a crash. I needed a Specialized dealer. I had been to the other Specialized dealer in my neighborhood,...
