If you’re like me and you’ve gotten into a couple bike accidents, then you probably heard of the Bicycle Stable. The shop is located at 1420 Frankford Ave. in Fishtown. It is a small shop, but they carry a good product. Walking in, you will notice bikes made by premium companies such as Bianchi, Globe, Marin, Surly, and Soma. Those brands are the top of the line for those that do not know much about cycling. They also have a wide array of parts and accessories for any job that needs to be done on your bicycle. They even have cycling apparel for those that take the sport a little more seriously than others.
I was at the Bike Stable about 2 weeks ago after a car smashed into the left side of my road bike. My front wheel was completely destroyed. This was a crushing blow to me. The lady that hit me was kind enough to take me to the Bicycle Stable in order to repair my bike. That was my first experience with this place, and I have to say I was pleased. The mechanics there were very knowledgeable and professional. They set me up with a new wheel while the one that was destroyed was getting completely rebuilt. I was very satisfied with their service. They turned a bad situation into a pleasant one.
Go to the Bicycle Stable for all your biking needs. Whether it’s changing a flat or building an entire bike- know this place has your back. This place has all a cyclist could want at a fair price. I can’t wait to get my completely rebuilt wheel from this place so I can ride around NoLibs once again. I’ll tell you one thing, the Bicycle Stable will be my go-to bike shop from now on.
