SPONSORS

When Hilltop Bicycles decided to open a bike shop in NYC, we wanted it to be the best bike shop in New York City. So we chose locations in undeserved places that needed a bike shop – the Lower East Side, Upper West Side, and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Then, we partnered with a leading brand, Specialized Bicycles, to bring the idea to market. What materialized, and we think you’ll agree, is the best bike shop in NYC.
