You Can't Hammer a Nail Over the Internet

Now in our 10th year, 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. 718 Cyclery believes in diversity and inclusion, and we seek to interact with companies who share these beliefs.

The appointment booked below is scheduling a drop-off date. Once bike is dropped of, we will evaluate bike for parts and labor needed .

Fix Your Bike February

Fix Your Bike February is a National Program we started with Jeff at Gus’ Bike Shop in New Hampshire. The program is meant to get some early season work going, hopefully negating the big drop off that many independent bike shops see this time of year.

We don’t discount labor, but here’s a deal to consider. Book a Tune-up on our Online Scheduler ( and receive a TorbCoin worth 25 TC.

What’s a TorbCoin, you ask? TorbCoins are offered and rewarded for various feats in the shop and beyond. Each coin has a value, that can be redeemed in December for some cool stuff. Collect them all. More info at (link in profile, mobile friendly). It’s like Chuck.E.Cheese meets Pogs.
