New York City’s Bike Shop
At NYC Velo, we’ve worked hard to create a welcoming atmosphere, filled with products and services unrivaled in the industry.
Our employees are some of the most experienced and knowledgeable cyclists/fitters/service specialists around, and are dedicated to helping you find what you’re looking for, from sales and fit to service and beyond. We believe a bike shop should be more than just a store – it should be a destination for cyclists, because cycling can be more than just a hobby; it can be a pursuit, a passion, a way of life.
Founded in New York City’s East Village by Andrew Crooks with the help of his family and friends, NYC Velo has developed into several of the most unique bike shops in Manhattan. Have a gratis espresso at the East Village location, pulled from the limited edition Giro d’Italia-edition Giotto, while you peruse the selections or watch the mechanics at work. Or stop by the Hell’s Kitchen shop and have your bike valeted or serviced while you grab a bite or a sip at Gotham West Market. Going to the bike shop should be an enjoyable experience, and at NYC Velo we understand what that experience entails. Every discipline is welcome; from commuters to weekend enthusiasts to racers and tourers, we can help you with any of your biking needs.
Meet The Staff
Founder & CEO
Andrew’s love of cycling began in 1989 after watching Greg Lemond’s famous last-second victory at the Tour de France. While attending college at Texas A&M, he raced for his school’s cycling team, elite cyclocross & MTB after.
NYC Velo’s Service Manager, Philip comes to us a man well-traveled: an Army brat, he’s lived in such exotic locales as Washington DC, West Germany, Kansas, and the Jersey Shore.
Mechanic – East Village
NYC Velo’s West Coast representation sits wholly upon the shoulders of Jay, though he admits to the practicing of East Coast singularities such as pickle making and One Dollar Pizza.
As tall as the mountains he was born in, Chris just can’t stay away from the outdoors, whether it’s sailing along the mountain bike trails of Upstate New York or commuting the similarly obstructed NYC streets
Sales – Hell’s Kitchen
Chad came to NYC Velo from the Minneapolis Messenger/612/Stupor Bowl World after visiting NYC for (and competing in) Monster Track 2 in 2001. He also leads the Saturday morning group ride.
Pennsylvania native and New York provocateur Nick knows that while it’s the creaky bike that gets the oil, it’s the quiet one that’s most fun. You may see him riding around town on a three-speed or 650B
Sales – East Village
After careers in magic and organic dog food failed to pan out, John found his calling selling recumbent, folding, and cargo bikes in Minneapolis. This led to a stint as national sales rep for Brompton Bicycle, maker of the world’s finest folders.
Mechanic – East Village
Devotees will recognize Martin’s tattooed, bearded visage as having been with NYC Velo for quite some time. Bikes have played a major role in his life, taking him from Alabama to California
