Best Bike Shop

Shaker Cycle

A bike shop is only as good as its proprietor, and Mitch Paul, owner of Shaker Cycle in Tremont, has chain lube running through his veins. Paul's been hawking bikes since the invention of the wheel, and he's happy to tell you about the physics behind aluminum frames, tire thickness, and gear ratios. His shop isn't the most ergonomically advanced -- it's more like a teenager's bedroom, only he knows where his stuff is -- but whether it's a road bike, mountain bike, trick bike, or tandem that you're looking for, you'll find it here. And for a good price too: Last year's models are marked down as much as 40 percent.
