    Comment:  I second “On the Move”. They were on 7th Ave. next to Bagel Hole for many, many years and moved last year to 259 13th Street (just off 5th Ave). The owner, CP is so helpful and gives the best prices he can (while staying in business!). Our family of 4 has bought at least 6 bikes there and had them serviced when necessary - over the last 12 years.

    Comment:  I use “On The Move”. They’re on 13th St., just off 5th Ave. (between 5th and 4th). Nice, friendly people. Run by CP. He’s been in the area for many years. Reasonable costs. (Also have a nice cat – Spooky – which my kids love.)

    Comment:  I second that for On the Move. The owner, CP is wonderful and we’ve bought 5 or 6 bikes there over the last 12 years in South Slope. We were sad to see him leave our block on 7th Ave & 12th Street but we’ve stayed loyal and recently visited his new shop on 13th & 5th for tune ups and a new bike basket. He will treat you right!

    Comment:  I recommend “On The Move” bike shop. They are located on 13 St., just off 5th Ave. The owner, CP is a great guy – very friendly and helpful, as is everyone who works there. The cat, Spooky, is also a wonderful bike mechanic – he’s just retired now and hangs around occasionally greeting visitors. JI believe a tune-up there is a lot less than $99. I’m taking my wife’s bike there for a tune-up soon. I was in there the other day to buy a new helmet, but CP showed me how to fix the broken strap on the old one quite easily. No charge!

    Comment:  A quick shout out to On the Move Bikes in South Slope. After 23 years (!) on 7th Ave. & 12th Street (next door to Bagel Hole) they moved to 13th St. and 5th Ave. It was due to new landlord, higher rent, etc. etc. BUT... the new location is bigger and brighter with the same great service from CP and his crew. I just got a tune up today. And I have no formal connection to them - I just wanted to recognize a gem in our community. They just give great service, prices and even gave my sitter a discount on her bike, just because she worked for a South Slope family. Hope you won’t forget them!

    Comment:  We recently got bikes for our children at On the Move at their new locatio on 13th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue. It was a wonderful experience - everyone who worked there was friendly, knowledgeable, and incredibly helpful. My kids love their bikes.I got a very inexpensive folding bike on Amazon and they built it for me.On the Move also has great accessories and feels like a community bike store.
