Which NYC shop to build a SS or Fixed?zmarke
Nov 19, 2002 5:59 PM
I am not sure how many NY'kers are on this new board but I am looking for recommendations concerning which shop would be the best to build my new SS and the one I will use for service (Manhattan preferred). I will have a frame, hubs, brakes, and crank but will probably need all the other parts.

I have heard that these are two shops that do a great amount of work with messengers and the Kissena Velodrome in Queens.

Emey's Bike Shop
17th Street (at 2nd Avenue)
no website

Any experiences with them?

Any other suggestions?

As always, THANKS!

Check out www.bikecult.com, they sell some good stuff. I got an Olmo with Miche' track components on it. Excellent bike. Dave knows what he is talking out.
Gotham has done all the work on my fixed. (nm)onespeed
