The Story of Tread Bike Shop
225 Dyckman 1999
250 Dyckman since 2008
We are one of the largest privately owned bike shops in New York City, with 150 plus bikes on the sales floor and up to 300 plus more in stock. Though we weren’t always one of the largest shops in the city, we dare say we started out as one of the smallest. Our staff is made up of people who were “that kid that could fix bikes and skateboards on the block”; this included the shop owner Ozzie. First Ozzie fixed stuff on the block, then at he and his boy’s apartment; in 1999 Ozzie decided to open up a shop.
The first shop was a hole in the wall on 225 Dyckman. Stocked with products we thought were cool and proven reliable. Professional mechanics had now joined the team, we became authorized dealers of a few top brands, and we were becoming well known in the neighborhood. With time, success and being a good neighbor, a bigger store opportunity came, right across the street. With a bigger store, bigger goals could be achieved.
In 2008 We moved into 250 Dyckman , this made us one of the biggest bike shops in New York city. With more space we became able to stock BMX, Mountain, Road, Hybrids and every kind of bike in between. Our mechanics now had the storage space needed for bigger and better tools. We were able to attain the resources to give back to the community and work with school programs dedicated to getting children on bikes.
Department stores hire temps and assign them to the sports department, we hire enthusiast, people who “were that kid on the block that fixes bikes”.
