Lee's recommendations are excellent; to toss in another, I personally
go to Paramount Bicycle (paramountbicycle.com) in Powderhouse Circle in
Somerville. Tyler, the owner, is especially good with fixed-gear bikes,
and also has a knack for fitting frames to people with odd body sizes.
From talking to friends in NYC (I've not lived there), the cops are nicer
to bikers here, but the buses are much worse.
