Our ratings of area bike shops will help you track down ones that will make it easy to buy some new wheels. The best businesses offer good advice, carry a wide selection of bikes, make them easy to test ride, and help you choose one that suits you well.

When you’re ready to buy, make sure the store will do a quality job of assembling and adjusting your bicycle, and will make readjustments for free—preferably for at least a year after you buy. Our ratings of shops for reliability, and for performing repairs properly, will help you make a good choice.

You’ll want to shop for the best price, but that probably won’t take long: Our undercover shoppers find very little price competition for new bikes.

If you don’t need a new bike, but want your old one to keep riding well, our ratings of repair shops will help you find reliable, reasonably priced options.
