Pedal On: There’s a New Bike Repair Shop in Bernal Heights

Great news for local fans of human-powered vehicles: There’s a new bicycle repair shop and frame-builder at 1637 Florida Street (between Precita and Peralta) on Bernalwood’s North Slope.

Actually, it’s two businesses in one: Bernal Bike for basic bicycle service, and Kroyer Cycles for frame repair and frame-building. Both are overseen by Sam Kroyer, a skilled bike mechanic who spent 12 years working at the venerable Valencia Cyclery in the Mission.

But don’t look for a regular storefront facade; Bernal Bike operates from the garage of Sam’s house, and we’ve received assurances that the business is fully licensed and blessed by the landlord. Business manager Erin McLachlan wrote Bernalwood to say:

Know us by the bike rack and the welcome sign.  Kroyer Cycles is owned by Sam Kroyer, a bicycle mechanic for over 25 years and a Bernal resident for 16 years.  The shop performs full-service repair and maintenance, custom builds, frame repair and warranty service.  We carry inventory of replacement parts and necessities.

  1. That’s fantastic! My commute takes me down that way every day. Now I know where to stop off and get my broken spokes fixed.

  2. As a faithful client of Sam’s for the past 5 years, I will attest to his brilliance of all things bike! I’ve never had a mechanical issue with any of my 6 bikes he’s worked on. Congrats and thanks for saving me a long drive to see you!
