The best bike shop in Boston faces unbelievably stiff competition. And the best bike shop in Somerville? Forget about it. Ace Wheelworks in Porter Square wins for customer service, a knowledgeable staff, and the swiftness of their repairs. Their prices are fairly reasonable, too. Buying a new bike has the potential to be traumatic, especially if you don't know what you're looking for. But our bike friends at Ace — no handlebar-mustachioed pedants, these — are chipper, friendly, and, above all, patient.
