We hired two bikes from this store after being sold them on the edge of the park. Unfortunately it soon became apparent that the bikes were very poorly maintained. The chain on one of our bikes fell off 4 or 5 times for no reason. The only upside of the poorly maintained bikes was that I could put the chain back on without getting any oil on my fingers at all. Eventually, after stopping every couple of minutes we just gave up and pushed the bike back to the store. When we got back, we suggested it only seems fair that we were refunded for one of the bikes, as it did not meet the standard we were sold. The member of staff in the store refused but understood our point so put us on the phone to a manager from a different store. The manager, after putting us on hold, hanging up, and then finally speaking to us after we phoned back, very rudely tried to blame us for the situation. We were told the bikes were well maintained, which I explained how this could not be the case. Then they used the defence that we could have called the helpline in small print on our receipt. At no point when we were hiring the bikes was this number pointed out to us should we need it. Being two UK travellers we didn't have phone that would have worked for this anyway, so I explained this wasn't a viable option either. I do understand that these bikes are used a lot and things will go wrong but I just wish people could be honest and own up when they have not met the standard which has been sold. Unfortunately that is not the case here. If we'd have paid $5 then I'd have said fair enough but at $20 per bike I'd expect much better! Avoid at all costs.

I had a fantastic experience on this tour over the summer. Our guide (forgot their name) took me and the rest of the group all around the park, pointed out landmarks and famous movie filming spots, and even took a few photos of my girlfriend and I! Thanks so much!

Well I wish I could say we got to enjoy this tour, but unfortunately we didn’t. Somewhere between TripAdvisor and vistor our reservations weren’t claimed. We showed up date and time our tour was supposed to be and they didn’t have our reservations.

This was the 2nd time we'd rented bikes from this shop and - oh my God - the staff are all so irritable and miserable, first thing in the morning. A guy who seemed to be a boss was hovering around - looking more glum than the rest - and just giving off a bad vibe to staff and customers alike. New Yorkers are known to be pretty unfriendly but these guys take that to a new level. The bikes themselves were fine and we got what we paid for but how hard is it to treat your customers with a smile and some courtesy?

My son’s 10 year old birthday trip to Manhattan included some favorite things to do in NYC: bicycling thru Central Park. The JW Marriott concierge recommended them, so we rented two bikes for an early morning ride before other activities that day. I told the concierge when we got back to the hotel to never recommend them again. 2 miles from the store at East 90th St, my bike’s chain broke, rendering the bike useless other than to push it, or coast downhill. I called the store and they had NO other advice than to “just bring it back to the store, we won’t charge you a late fee if you’re late getting back”. No one to help, nothing. So, my son was relegated to walking HIS bike most of the way back too since I can’t send a 10 year old ahead on his own. I asked for a partial refund (only $5 of the $40 we spent) when we returned, but NO. They only gave me a business card (that on the back asked me to rate them on Trip Advisor, so like a rule follower , I am now!) for a free 2 hr rental the next time I came back. Well, that was yesterday and I am now home. Thanks for nothing, including customer service. Renter beware. I’ve never left a negative review until now, I try to be positive whenever I can, but this was a special trip for my son.
