At Red Lantern Bicycles, we believe that bicycles are one of human kinds’ greatest inventions.

We also believe that they are the best way to get around this great city. That’s why we specialize in helping you, the commuter.

The bikes we carry are for the commuter and are designed to be used as a utilitarian machine. All of them are tough, rugged, and capable of racks and fenders.

We specialize in useful and functional bicycles. We know that because of what we do to your ride, your livelihood will improve. And we know that our bikes are making other people’s lives better.

The staff has over 30 years of combined experience. We could tell you that we are the best. But every shop does that. What we will tell you is that what we do is done precisely and accurately. Check out the “Service” section for more in-depth details. And when you do come in, our work will be the proof behind the puddin’.

We also happen to have a passion for coffee. We roast our own beans in-house from a single origin bean we get from Guatemala. We also make our own alternative nut milks (i.e. almond, cashew, and sunflower) to go along with that cup of goodness you just ordered. Milks, ice and hot teas, hot chocolates, chai drinks… you name it. All made in-house.

So bring your bike by. Chillax at the bar if you’d like. We have lots of answers to any questions that you may have. We will be more than happy to chat-a-chat-chat with you about all things bike. Because here at Red Lantern, we’re all about the bike love.

I am an old-time customer of Red Lantern. They have even built bikes for me before they were at this current location. They provide pleasant, professional service. I do not take my bike anywhere else. Red Lantern employees are careful, fair, unsnobby and offer thorough service. Purchase and repair options are always well explained, never pushy. They can and will fix and build anything from a 12-speed, to a cruiser, to a delivery bike, to a race bike. Great beer-coffee-sandwich-wine bar as well, great to be in regardless of if you are having a bike fixed or not, great for a bite or a brew. Amazingly, they have the only beer-and-wine license in NYS. A true "public house", with half cyclists, half-not truly mingling over a coffee or a beer. A sincere five stars for Red Lantern. A cool, reliable small business.

I've been getting great coffee, and great bike tune ups, for years for me and my son at this neighborhood favorite. Fun staff, good coffee, fast bike work. What else could you possibly want??

Excellent staff, food and coffee. Everything on the menu is made in house so you can really know and trust that whatever you order is being made with care and awareness, not with fillers and preservatives.

Knowledgeable service technicians for your repair or new build, tasty beverages for your parched lips. Don't forget to say hello to the landshark ;)

I had a puncture just blocks away from this gem of a bike shop. Not only was I pleasantly surprised to find it open on a Sunday morning, but everyone was super friendly to me and my two sons. And coffee to boot? Couldn't be happier. Thanks, Brian!

Awesome neighborhood spot for coffee, snacks, beer (in the afternoon/evening) and, obviously, all your biking needs.

Fast work and reasonable rates for bike repairs. Plus, the coffee bar makes the short wait for your repair a pretty great way to kill time. Definitely a great addition to the neighborhood.

We've just been sent papers from BMI, threatening to sue us if we don't pay them a $1500 licensing fee for the live music we have here.

Blatant extortion.

Obviously, we can't afford that. Nor can we afford a lawyer. And they know this.

We're forced to cancel all live performances at the shop and we are also forced to only play the radio in the cafe.

Google "BMI harassment' and you'll get a better idea as to what we're dealing with.
