"You Can't Hammer a Nail Over the Internet"
718 Cyclery is a full service bike shop in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Founded in 2008, our focus has always been working collaboratively with our customers. 718 Cyclery was founded on the principle that we are practitioners of 100+ year old technology, not the guardians of it. We strive to create an environment where arrogance and attitude have no place. These are bikes, and this is fun. 718 Cyclery believes in diversity and inclusion, and we seek to do business with companies who share these beliefs.
From May 2 to September 30, voting is open for the Best of Brooklyn program. During this period, everyone can vote for whatever local nominees they feel should hold a Best of Brooklyn title. Vote here.
We Go On Trips
718 Cyclery, NYC's premier Adventure Cycling bike shop, is proud to announce the launch of 718 Trips and Tours. 718 Trips and Tours seeks to connect people looking to escape urban living with the perfect 718 Cycling Adventure (even if it's just for one night). Beginners absolutely welcome!
Our free classes are a big part of who we are. Bringing people in on "the secret" is our thing. These classes are based on an informal lecture style, with attendees gathered around our central workspace. Feel free to bring your bike... After class, throw your bike up in the stand to discuss with our mechanics further.
We Build Bikes
718 Cyclery was founded in 2008, and continues to focus on building bikes WITH our customers. Road, mountain, touring, commuter, Wind Cheetah.....if you have dreamed it up, we can build it with you. Our shop is a place of learning, where arrogance and attitude have no place (Shop Philosophy). We offer 3 paths to getting your dream bike built. Each path can be used to get an in-store Collaborative Build started, or to have us build you your dream bike with (free) shipping to the lower 48 of the United States.

The 718 Condors
The 718 Condors are leaders and protectors, ensuring the safety and fun of participants of our rides, trips and tours (road, gravel, mtb, etc). Condors come from all walks of life and all corners of the cycling community. However, Condors share the core belief that a life on a bicycle is a life well spent. Condors are cycling ambassadors, beacons of safety and confidence.
Although it may appear to be similar to a secret society, nothing could be further from the truth as a Condor's calling is to educate and share. Suffice to say, the Condor's diversity and inclusion mirror the riders we serve.
We are currently accepting applications for the first class of 10 Condors. Condors get compensated for rides they lead and/or support, free training, a pretty fantastic shop discount and some great (and very exclusive) Condor Swag.
