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.

Great place to grab a coffee, lunch or beer, and they make their own non-dairy milks (which change daily) huge plus for me. Staff is great too!

This is the best bike shop in the city. Between the low prices, chic atmosphere and unpretentious know-how, you can't go wrong. I live in UWS manhattan and will ride the extra 45 minutes/15 miles to red lantern for repairs. Found this place on accident when my rear callipers fell off while riding in brooklyn. Looked on google maps for the closest bike shop and now I'm a regular. They have done excellent work both on my vintage raleigh and high-end touring bike. The best part is that while they're doing repairs, you can sit and have a coffee or beer at the bar!

These guys are really helpful. Though things are a little bit expensive, I'd still consider RLB an affordable place to bring your bike, especially considering the amount of explanation and advice I received. They were friendly, informative and relatively fast. The only reason my experience wasn't incredibly quick was that the dude helping me out took the time to examine, diagnose and then explain the work I needed done as well as recommend future maintenance advice. There's also a bar/cafe in the front if you need to wait a while, I didn't order anything, but its a stand-out feature for sure.

I DID NOT RIDE MY BIKE WHILE IT HAD A FLAT ! I got my first flat fixed here! I wasn't inside for more than 5 minutes on Sunday 10/19. I DID NOT RIDE MY BIKE HOME. I woke up Wednesday morning to the same flat. I was so pissed I gave away $13 + plus tip, when i never even RODE MY BIKE! i didn't ask for receipt :( My sister went and explained how upset i was. The shop fixed the flat again LAST Sunday for FREE. The shop told my sister i'll get a FLAT AGAIN in the next 2 to 3 day because the inside is old. I NEVER GOT THE FLAT AGAIN. Last night I almost got into an ACCIDENT, because my brakes were TAMPERED with. MY BREAKS WERE F#8K!NG FINE LIKE WTF!! 1 STAR bad service. 1 STAR for lying to my sister. 1 STAR for not giving me a receipt. 1 STAR cause now i got to fix my breaks. 1 STAR cause now my bike makes this noise it never had. 1 STAR for wasting my time ! Thank GOD i got to dodge the last minute car door. All i got was a sprained pinky finger and a little cut on my point finger.

This place is what every bike shop should be, and hey, there is a great cafe in there too. I found the place because it was on my old home to work commute. Now, I don't live or work in Brooklyn and still make my way out to red lantern for a coffee/beer and opinions on anything that's going on with my bike. They are happy to give advice, judgment free, and always a fair price.

Good neighborhood spot for a quick bike fix. The guys are real bike heads. Very friendly and helpful. I've had coffee there a few times and it's decent. Not the best in the neighborhood but a good meeting spot if you need one.

Came here for a Citibike safety course. This will be a review for their cafe as I've never been here for bicycle purposes. It's cool that they have a cafe inside. I tried their cookie (which was overpriced for what it was) and their pistachio milk, since I've never seen pistachio milk before. For all of you whose interest has been peaked by the prospect of pistachio milk, let me save you the time- it's pretty bad. They should have watered it down more and sweetened it.

We're very excited to let ya'll know that we've just become a Raleigh dealer.

We've been thinking now for quite some time about who (else) we would like to carry here at the shop. Whelp, we've decided. They have a great reputation, awesome bikes, and offer some really great options for the commuter. All at a really affordable price.

Take a look at our website for some more pics.
