Bicycle Workshop

J.T. Hargrove

JT spent five years as a bike messenger negotiating the busy streets of New York and Boston. His passion for bicycles, maintenance, efficiency and helmet advocacy brought him through the next five years as a professional mechanic managing the busy bike shops of Cambridge. A life-long musician, JT applies the meticulous tuning he expects of his instruments to the fine-tuning of your bicycle.

Tom Estrada

After training in culinary arts, Tom spent twelve years working in kitchens and high-end bicycle shops from Nantucket to Portland, Oregon. For the last seven years Tom served as service manager of Boston's foremost single-speed boutique. His candid honesty and direct approach to recommendations have given him a reputation for honest rapport and witty repartee. Don't be afraid to ask questions, he will not be afraid to answer them.

Uniting Cyclists in
Union Square

Somervelo is a full-service bicycle shop created by two seasoned mechanics striving to bring a positive environment of integrity and community to Somerville and Greater Boston. Integrally involved in all facets of the cycling world, our goal is to build a stronger cycling hub in the heart of Union Square. We offer personal experience, dependability and accessibility unique to the bicycle shop world. Our years of shared experience among friends, professionals and locals alike have cultivated our reputation for quality service, affordable pricing, and a love for bikes, people who ride them and their stories.

J.T. Hargrove

"Many mechanics do what they do because they love riding bicycles, I like to ride, but I genuinely just love working on them."

Tom Estrada

"For me, taking something old and turning it into something new is the fun of it all."
