We are all looking foward to the holiday season for different reasons. The reason we are excited is that this is the halfway point for our fourth year in business. As someone that started working in bicycle shops at an early age I appreciate being here and I cant imagine doing anything else. We take pride in knowing that your support is the hallmark to our success.
To celebrate our success we are now offering a lifetime of free tune ups with any bike purchased here. Take pride in knowing your ride is covered by over 25 years of experience.
We also guarantee tune-ups for 30 days now.
We are excited to be a small local shop and in tandem appreciate when customers feel that energy. Theres nothing like being called the “bike guy” when I go out in the neighborhood.
You’ll find that we can never compete with Big Chain stores in terms of price or being able to get a flat screen in the same trip. But we offer a completely different product and service that is specialized and intimate. We do offer bikes for every budget and type of rider as well. We are a bike shop and we would love to be your bike shop. And if we do our job right you wont wind up with a bike that no one uses and becomes a home for spiders.
Stop in, check us out. Test rides are available for those that want to try before you buy and you can do it in Van Cortlandt as opposed to the aisle. Our bikes are built by bicycle mechanics when they are put on the floor. Our cheapest bicycle will reflect the same attention to detail in build as our most expensive. We carry bicycles for all different budgets and riders.
From United Spokes to you – Thank you for your support and have a very happy holiday season!

Spring is finally here and we are ready to get you back out on that commute to work, riding your favorite trail, taking the family for a spin together or just getting some wind in your hair.
Spring is an amazing time to ride however it is not ideal just yet. Until Summer there are a few key pieces that you can pick up to make your ride safe and comfortable. The right gear to wear on the bike are key to making the whole experience better.
One of my favorite items are gloves – the right gloves help create an interface that should enhance a few key things.. for everyone from BMXers, casual riders and racers. Gloves will protect us in a crash, provide enhanced comfort, warmth and better control. There are different types of gloves for all price ranges and types of riding.
Another key item no matter what time of year is a helmet. All helmets should be replaced after 3 years of ownership for many reasons, however the real one is that the material used in helmets starts to degrade to point where it does not meet the safety standards it was built to live up to. Plus if you ride enough they become a science experiment from hours and hours of sweat and high temperatures. Also a very important thing to remeber is that if you have crashed and landed on your helmet you definitely need to replace it.
Dressing right does not mean that you are racing either, there are many casual riding pieces that reflect comfort and performance that are made for the every day rider… which is something we specialize in… You. We have the experience and patienece it takes to get to you to your destination looking and feeling as good as you can.
We also specialize in making your bike work the best it can and Spring is the perfect time to refresh that bike of yours. Estimates are free and our mechanics are knowledgeable and friendly. We work on everything from that aging clunker to the best the industry has to offer. Plus all of our tune ups are guaranteed for 30 days. Come and feel the difference shopping here has to offer.
Thank you for all of your support! Our customers are the reason we are here and the passion for helping cyclists keeps United Spokes moving foward.
