If you choose to bike to class every morning, here are a few repair shops and stores that will make sure you get there on time and in-style. If these listings don’t satisfy your cravings, try the Tennessee Classifieds, where past students have been known to find good deals
They have the largest variety of bike brands. They also have a good little skateboard shop in the back for anyone who feels the urge to shred Nashvegas!

Excellent recommendations by VMSers who say the staff is friendly, helpful and not at all snobby. If you come by near closing time, you may even be invited for a beer. This shop also organizes fun events like “Bar Rides.”
