Hello cycling enthusiasts! We’ve got some exciting winter news for you. The long-awaited repair classes are coming back. This year, we’ll be doing 2 sets of classes at the end of February and beginning of March.
There will be a basic class, covering simple roadside repairs (flat fixes and the like) and an advanced class, covering more in-depth home repair like derailleur adjustments, brake adjustments and beyond.
You can sign up for both, or each class individually depending on your level of interest, though the advanced class will assume that you’ve taken the basic class or have an equivalent knowledge base already.
The classes will meet on Sundays from 9am to 11am. Basic sessions will run February 15th and March 1st and Advanced sessions will run February 22nd and March 8th. Each session is $20, you bring your own bike and we provide the tools, repair stands and know-how!
For more detailed information or to sign up, call the shop (we can take cards over the phone for payment) or stop by in person. Mailing list subscribers get first notice, but space is limited so sign up fast!

Everyone who’s had their bike serviced by us knows that our Classic Tune Up package is a great way to get your bike truly dialed and ready to ride, whether it’s rehabbing an old favorite that hasn’t seen the road in years or monthly maintenance for your daily rider. Some bikes, however, need that extra level of special care. And some bikes are just plain dirty. Fortunately, Bicycle Therapy is here to help with our new Pro Wash and Pro Tank Cleaning service packages. Stick around after the jump to find out more. Read More »

As anyone who has gotten a flat fixed here at the shop before knows, we pride ourselves on the efficiency, speed and of course quality we provide with out flat tire repair service. In order to continue providing that level of service, we have to raise the price of flat tire repair from $13 to $15, effective January 1st. Not a significant of a jump, just wanted to give a heads up before the change went through.
To offset some of the increasing cost, for a limited time we’re bring back the ever popular Flat Fix Punch Card. $50 dollars buys you 5 flats, (that’s $10 dollars per flat for the less number-inclined among us) and the card is available now through January 15th so stop by and get yours today. Limit 1 per customer.

Meet Bobby, the youngest member of our crew and the shop’s official tire inspector.
With the winter coming to an end and salty roads soon to be a thing of the past, Bobby wants to advise everyone to check their tires. Worn tires can contribute to more flats, poor handling and the rare blow out. Wet weather, low air pressure, and lots of riding break down the integrity of the tire’s rubber. Cracks on the sidewall as well as a worn, pitted, or squared treads are all evidence that the tire’s life is nearing the end.
Bobby has included a few illustrations below.
Happy riding, and be safe!

It was an enormous and humbling honor to named as one the Best Bike Shops in America last year, but there’s something extra nice about winning a Best of Philly, especially when that award is for our legendary service department.
It all started with Lee, back in 1990, fixing bikes by himself and earning his reputation as one of the best wrenches in town, and it continues today with a staff of experienced and knowledgeable mechanics who are ready to take on any job, big or small.
Whether you’re a long time customer or you’ve never had the pleasure of getting your bike worked on here before, stop by anytime for free estimates, great customer service, expert work, fast turnaround times, and find out what it’s like to get the best bike service in Philadelphia.

If you’ve bought a bike from us (thanks!) then you know about the legendary Bicycle Therapy Service Plan: three years of unlimited self-scheduled labor for just $60*, AKA the best service available for an unbelievable price. The Bicycle Therapy Service Plan is, without a doubt, the best and most affordable way to keep your bike running well.
The only complaint we’ve ever heard is that three years of unlimited service is sometimes not enough. Starting now, you can add 2 years at the end of your 3 year plan for just $50. Thats two more years of unlimited Tune-ups (a $120 value) for $50, not too shabby.
For more info, just stop by the shop.
*the Bicycle Therapy Service Plan is available only with the purchase of a new bike from Bicycle Therapy and the plan must be purchased within thirty days of the date of purchase of the bike. The plan covers the cost of service for self-scheduled tune-ups only, so neither the the cost of unscheduled service nor the cost of any replacement parts are covered by the plan.
