Best repair shop to get you back on two wheels

No Brakes

Staff Pick

Don’t know the difference between a derailleur and a crankset? That’s fine, because NO BRAKES will set you up with a bike that doesn’t have either. Now in its third year and freshly relocated to Grant Park, this stripped-down shop is ground zero for the current fixed-gear craze sweeping intown Atlanta. They’ll work on any kind of bike, but they specialize in lightweight track bikes with a single speed and, as the name suggests, no brakes. You can also have your ride built from the ground up by choosing from a selection of frames, handlebars, wheels and seats made of English leather and brass. Or you can buy a velodrome-ready racing bike. Or you can simply opt to get your old three-speed fixed up to run errands. No judgment here. 586 Woodward Ave. 404-589-9539. www.nobrakesatl.com.
