Best Bike Shop - 2008
Main Street Cyclery
A man's bike is his steed—the kind of steed that doesn't crap on the floor—so one can't be expected to trust its care to just anyone. The lucky few who get the honor of caring for the beast must possess the hands of a surgeon and a knowledge of gears that rivals a civil engineer's. Dave Dunton knows this better than most. He opened Main Street Cyclery's doors on Father's Day 1997, just after obtaining his MBA, and the shop has thrived ever since, thanks largely to Dunton's focus on two core concepts: knowledge and service. All of the employees are as nice as can be—they offer you bottled water while you wait and take the time to listen to your needs and concerns—while providing full-service repairs and sales of some of the best brands in the biz. Ride your stallion over for a tune-up you'll never forget.
