Brooks’ Bike Shop: A Full Service Shop for Your Bicycle

Published by:

As many folks know, Covington Weekly is delivered by bike in the downtown area, and that is our favorite part of the day.  It’s great to ride around Covington on a beautiful day and see friendly people.  When our pedal-powered transportation began to show signs of needing a tune-up, we brought the bikes to Brooks’ Bike Shop in downtown Covington.  Pat Brooks opened the Bike Shop late last year, and his enthusiasm for biking is catching on.

Located conveniently on the Tammany Trace, just a half a block from the Covington Trailhead, Brooks’ Bike Shop is a full-service facility, offering antique bikes, new and used bikes, repair, tune ups and general maintenance, buy, sell or trade.  You can also find a small selection of skateboards (mostly longboards, he tells us that’s what the kids are looking for these days.  My personal favorite was always the standard Vision Gator).   He carries other accessories and parts, and is always willing to order what you are looking for.   Turn around time is quick, and we had our simple machines back within a couple of days, even with the weekend.

A full tune-up is only $25 per bike, which is very reasonable for inspecting the brakes, chain, gears and tires and returning them to properly working order.  When we got ours back, it felt like we were riding brand new bikes! A highly recommended stop.
