The self-proclaimed “most interesting bike shop in the world,” Via Bicycle is an excellent resource for buying and selling used bikes and for low-cost repairs. The shop itself is a sight to be seen with its authentic vintage decor filled with well-maintained bikes and accessories.
Road bikes, beach cruisers, classics, basics, and rare bikes are available for sale. Or just stop by to fill up your tires outside next to the signature yellow benches where locals do a little fine tuning. The mechanics are knowledgeable and friendly and prices are average.
