No need to venture out to Long Island City anymore for Spokesman Cycle's ultimate biker haven. The family-owned business has set up shop in the heart of Union Square. The spacious store--more than double the size of its flagship--caters to everyone from the beginner rider to the advanced. Accessories include Chrome messenger bags (from $110), high-end performance saddlebags ($60--$200) and Velocity rims in all colors, including funky argyle print ($300 a pair). Owner Carlos Dall'Orso suggests the hybrid Bianchi Cortina ($429) for a "stylish and reliable all-purpose bike, great for commuting and recreational rides."
