New Service Center!

We have expanded as of Feb 5th.  

Visit our new service center for parts, repairs, and tuneups.  

Located at 3919 Wheeler Ave, in the next building 300ft west of our retail center.

Our old space will become a full-sized retail showroom.  Visit us there for new and used bikes, and accessories like lights, locks, lubricants/cleaners, bags, bikepacking gear, helmets, gloves, shoes, etc.


Visit our retail center still located at 3800 Wheeler Ave for new and used bikes and trikes, and accessories including bags, bikepacking gear, tires, lights, locks, helmets, and shoes.

Regular Checkups Are Needed (Appointments Aren't)

If it has been longer than a year since you've had a good look at your bike, bring it in for a free assessment.  We'll tell you what we think it needs and why, so that you can make an informed decision about how to spend your money and time.  

Our Annual Tuneups cover the entire bike - more than some other shops.  If you're going to get a tuneup, our opinion is that the entire bike should be checked, adjusted, and safe.

Bikes on Sale

We Are Hiring!    Immediate openings for experienced retail sales staff and mechanics / technicians.


Electric bicycles are great if you want to get there faster, ride further, or just need an extra boost.  We have an entire page dedicated to ebikes, including the top five things we think you should know when considering a purchase.

Our Services

Handy Bikes provides full bicycle repair service from our shop at 3800 Wheeler Ave in Alexandria.  Our service department can do everything from suspension rebuilds to diagnostics of Bosch e-bikes.  

We don't take appointments for service, meaning you are free to bring your bike in any time we're open.  Once you arrive we'll go through your bike together to see what it needs, and from there we'll be able to give you a detailed quote and timeline to complete work (in the summer this may be as much as 5-7 days, in the winter it may only be a few hours).

Our Philosophy

We believe that bikes are for everyone.  Cycling should be everything: fun, challenging, utilitarian, extravagant, simple or as complex as the rider wants it to be.  At Handy Bikes, our goal is to provide a safe, approachable place for riders of all ages and abilities to bring their bikes for advice, repairs, and support.
