Philadelphia’s bike culture is something special. Not only do we have bike lanes connecting urban areas to scenic suburbs, but we have spaces that seek to make the sport accessible to any type of rider. Here are over a dozen shops catering to all things biking.

Befitting Bicycles

118 East Lancaster Avenue, Wayne

This full-service repair shop in Wayne covers all things bikes, from fit sessions and classes to tune-ups and custom bike curation.

Bell’s Bike Shop

1320 East Passyunk Avenue, Passyunk Square

Steve Bell’s shop has been a city staple for over a decade, and he sells a range of styles — from city to hybrid to mountain bikes — something for every kind of rider.

Bicycle Therapy

2211 South Street, Fitler Square

Since 1990, Bicycle Therapy has been selling, servicing, and repairing new and old bikes. They offer multiple forms of tune-ups, plus bike and cleat fits and wheel builds from the cycling-savvy staff.

Cadence Cycling Centers

201 South 25th Street, Center City and 3740 Main Street, Manayunk

Cadence understands that biking isn’t just about buying equipment and hitting the road, so their stores go above and beyond the typical bike sales and repairs. Cadence has an indoor studio and lab testing, plus it offers race coaching opportunities for new and seasoned riders.

Firehouse Bicycles

701 South 50th Street, West Philly

Owners Monica Pasquinelli and Sam Davis have a knack for taking old bikes and making them shiny and new. The store also carries brand-new bikes — from BMX bikes to mountain bikes — and even skateboards and apparel.

Firth & Wilson Transport Cycles

1315 North Howard Street, Fishtown and 821 Dudley Street, room 107B (inside Bok), South Philly

Whether you visit their Fishtown store or Bok location, Firth & Wilson is the place you go if you’ll be carrying more than yourself on your bike. They have everything you could possibly need to transport packages, kids, you name it. They also sell traditional and electric bikes, and offer repair services.

Frankinstien Bike Worx

1529 Spruce Street, Rittenhouse

The name suits this shop because not only do they sell and repair bikes, they build them. One of their designs was created for Biria as the brand’s first bike made exclusively for the U.S. market.

JUNTO Electric Bikes

1627 North 2nd Street, Fishtown

JUNTO knows that sometimes we need a break from peddling, so they sell an extensive collection of e-bikes. They include utility bikes for couriers and leisurely bikes for those who need a little power on their rides.

Kayuh Bicycles & Cafe

1900 West Girard Avenue, Francisville

Having a bike is an experience, and that’s what Henry Sam has created at his retail space, cafe, and mobile repair shop, which launched in 2021. Kayuh sells bikes and gear for adults and children — from cables to shorts to hydration packs. Plus, at the in-store cafe you can enjoy a banh mi and Vietnamese coffee while you wait for your bike to get a tune-up.

With the help of knowledgeable staff, novice bikers can feel at home in the biking world here. The store also carries an extensive line of bikes from brands like Specialized and Trek, as well as electric bikes.

Keystone Bicycle Co.

1800 North American Street, Kensington

This worker-owned bike co-op carries a variety of brands, including Velo Orange and Soma Fabrications, and can build you the bike of your dreams. In the shop, find everything from helmets and saddles to locks, racks, and camping supplies.

Neighborhood Bike Works

3939 Lancaster Avenue, Mantua

In addition to selling refurbished and “as is” bikes, Neighborhood Bike Works is seriously focused on teaching kids and adults how to fix bikes. They frequently host repair classes, and run “Bike Church” every week so community members of all ages and gender identities can work on a bike with the help of the shop’s tools and staff’s expert knowledge.

PAPERtrail Bike Cafe

211 Lincoln Drive, Historic Rittenhouse Town

PAPERtrail Bike Cafe has it all, from bike tours and mechanics to a bucolic outdoor area where you can sit with a cup of locally roasted coffee while you wait for your wheels to be repaired.

Philadelphia Bikesmith and Main Line Cycles

1822 Spring Garden Street, Spring Garden and 919 Montgomery Ave, Narberth

Both stores are one-stop shops for all things bicycles — there’s an extensive selection of bikes, wheels, parts, helmets, cycling shoes, and accessories. Plus, you can expect expert advice and repairs, and find apparel suitable for any adventure — from urban cycling to triathlon competitions.

South Philly Bike Shop

1901 South 13th Street, South Philly

This South Philly staple wants to help you become a more confident rider. Not only do they sell bike brands like Schwinn, GT, and Brooklyn, but they also offer repairs, tune-ups, and a service that has the crew build your online- or big box store-bought bike for you.

The Tricycle Cafe & Bicycle Shop

1 Station Avenue, Conshohocken

This Conshy spot is part eatery, part bike shop, and part community hub. Go for a coffee, pastry, wrap, or sandwich; to get your wheels tuned up or to buy or rent a set; or for a public event.


Multiple Locations 

Trek Bicycle is the place for Trek bikes (duh), as well as other popular brands. Local stores in Center City, Manayunk, and Ardmore offer in-store credit if you bring in an old bike. (This comes in handy for little ones that grow like weeds.)

Trophy Bikes

133 South 23rd Street, Center City

Trophy Bikes specializes in Brompton folding bikes, so bring yours to the shop if it needs servicing. The store also frequently hosts repair classes and community rides so you can get the most out of your bike.

Via Bicycle

622 South Broad Street, Graduate Hospital

A city mainstay for 40 years, this place — which we once described as looking like a granddad’s garage — is the place to go for not only servicing and sales, but bike nostalgia.
