When you need a simple tune-up or, after hitting a patch of goatheads, a quick innertube swap, it's best to go to people you trust. For many Boise cyclists--not just the Spandex clad but fixed-gear fans and cruisers, too--that's George's, home to some of the valley's finest purveyors of quality bikes and other gear. Thankfully, you're never far from one of the shop's three locations, so when you do split an axle or twist a tire, service staff can get you back in the saddle. Multiple locations, georgescycles.com.
