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.
Trips and Tours
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, .....if you have dreamed it up, we can build it with you. 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.
