AJ Nichols, the bike mechanic who was repairing and selling bicycles out of a basement in Bushwick, is enjoying a new life above ground. The 26-year-old North Carolinian relocated his subterranean studio to a proper storefront and, after decorating it with woodworking scraps from an artist’s dumpster, grand-opened Harvest Cyclery at 606 Bushwick Avenue earlier this month.
What exactly is a cyclery, you ask? And how does one harvest bikes? Fear not — our video, in which Nichols gives his special brand of TLC to a “garage queen,” explains all.
Commence bike porn.
Harvest Cyclery, 606 Bushwick Ave., nr. Jefferson St., Bushwick; (929) 234-3555; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day except Wednesday and Thursday.
