We will be opening our first RETAIL STOREFRONT location in mid October. We’ll be on the west end of Alexandria on Wheeler Avenue, close to our friends at Port City Brewing.
We’ll still be focused on mechanics and repairs, and helping customers learn more about their bikes is our biggest priority. We will have bikes for sale from brands like Salsa, Soma, All-City, and others — we will be focusing on gravel, bikepacking, and adventure cycling. This means you can expect to see bags, panniers, racks, lights, and dynamo options from a variety of brands built for durability and performance, but the showroom will be small with only a few display models to test out. We’ll work with you on sizing, gear, and accessories, and then order your bike — you’ll be riding in a few days! You can even join us to complete your build, working side by side with one of our mechanics to learn as you go.
We’ll also be offering mechanical classes and workshops, from basic flat tire repair and trailside maintenance to advanced skills used in building a frame from the ground up.
Finally, we’ll be starting up free monthly group rides and free outdoor events like overnight bikepacking adventures on the C&O.
Stay tuned for more details!
