Whether you’re a serious adventure cyclist or happily moseying along the bike path, you’re minutes away from the widest selection of cycles, gear, clothing, repair items, and every kind of bike accessory you could ever need. Don’t hit the road unprepared! See how our local bike shops make sure you’ve got everything you need:

Just over the Belmont line sits Belmont Wheelworks, a local fixture since the early ‘80s.  Along with offering an enormous cycle and equipment selection, Belmont Wheelworks is known for Peter Mooney Cycles, a custom, hand-built bike frame shop they’ve had inside their store since it opened. Their bike, accessory and clothing selection is as extensive as Farina’s – plus they also offer some cool services like 

  • An online bike finder questionnaire that asks series of very specific questions ahead of visiting the showroom. Once you submit it, a sales associate will contact you with a pre-selected group of product ideas to make that first visit more productive.
  • An extensive bike repair class schedule that offers one- and two-hour sessions to cover the basics, as well as more involved six- and twelve-hour programs that cover topics like hands-on brake adjustment; wheels, tires, and tubes; and derailleur adjustments. Their staff also offers specialty clinics on subjects like suspension overhaul and wheel building.
  • For those wanting to amp up their technique, Belmont Wheelworks offers indoor cycling classes based on the teachings of Harvard Cycling Coach Ed Sassler. Sessions build on each other and are meant to develop cyclists’ muscle groups to improve fitness and performance.
