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.

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.

this shop has excellent merchandise and service (repairs, etc) but what makes it really stand out is the staff. they are knowledgeable and very friendly.

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.
