Bought my first bike from Sid's 2yrs ago and have been going there ever since. Service is fantastic, staff is very helpful and friendly. Mechanics are very knowledgeable and always there to help. Definitely my 1st choice of Bike Shops in manhattan. C.K.

Just not worth it

I really wanted to find a good local bike shop and really wanted Sids to be the one. I've been patronizing them for a while and after a while, I realize they're overpriced and have a lackadaisical attitude towards customers, never mind repeat customers who purchase expensive services (the bread and butter of any LBS). After screwing up one to many times, I'm moving on. Hopefully you'll benefit from my experience and stay away. There's plenty of other shops in NYC.

I will never go back to Sids again

I live very local to Sids, and purchased my bike at Sids as well. In the 6 months since purchasing my bike, I have used Sids as my source for all my biking needs. Not only are the staff condascending, they are very unhelpful, and oftentimes extremely rude. In addition, before a race, I brought my bike in to be tuned, and when I got ready for my race, I saw that my computer was not working. The last straw was what happened this past weekend. I had them pack my bike to take to Florida for a triathlon, and when I opened the box, my bike wasn't in there. Just plain horrible.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
