Cicli Berlinetta – Vintage racing bike connoisseur

A few years ago I made the smart move to switch from public transport to a bicycle to explore the city. I don’t regret it. Riding your bike is the best way to discover the city. Riding a nice bike is even better. I started to ride a semi old red French racing bike which was sleeping in my parents’ garage. The first thing I had to do was find a bicycle connoisseur because the more you use it the more you need to take care of it, it was better to find an appropriate shop.

Desperately looking for a bike force I ended up in the Cicli Berlinetta bike shop. The place is a goldmine for vintage racing bikes -Italian frame- or track bike-lovers. It feels like being in a candy shop, except you can’t eat the colorful frames, books, bags or numerous accessories. There I found a very good mechanic and I can keep my bike in constant good shape. Did you know you should change your bike chains regularly? Amazing, now I know.

If you can find a wine shop in every street of Paris, you will find a bike shop in almost every street of Berlin. Therefore the cost for bike repairs is pretty standard, what you need is to find your dealer, I found mine. But be aware there is room for addiction here. You will always find the missing accessory, whether you need it or not, especially if you don’t need one right now…
