If you know me you know I like good bikes and good music. During my time in Berlin I found cicli-berlinetta and since moving to Montreal I needed to find a replacement . It could not be more cliché, but while attending one of the numerous open air events during the summer of Montreal, a friend introduced me to another friend, let’s name him Paul, in charge of a bicycle garage. Curious I was, I did visit this place a few days later and I was just inspired.
Plateau Vélo-garage has fast become my obligatory stop for a quick fix on my bike, getting news about the local bicycle community, stories about the city or to just say hi. Don’t look for the facebook page or internet website of this spot, they don’t exist. But be sure to always have quality electronic music in your ears when you visit this address. The bike mechanics working there are pretty good and it’s the place to get a custom rig using spare parts. And looking at the asphalt quality in Montreal, the bikes need to be solid.
