Great local bike shop with competitive prices and a friendly staff! In less than 48 hours Ron and his team had my bike ready for commuting, with new tires, a rack, lights, and bell! And they let me try out a couple styles of bags before committing to one! Thank you!!
Awesome place! Great service! Will always come back when in town! First time I stumbled in the shop was when I was riding the Mt. Vernon trail and needed a break adjustment. Got awesome service. So I asked if they fit for tri bikes. And they did! I made an appointment with Ron the owner. He was more than happy to accommodate me despite the short notice. He did a great job fine tuning my seat and giving my bike a look over before my tri the following morning. I was very happy with the service. I highly recommend the place and will come back to it if I am in the area as I am not local.
Had my first experience with Wheel Nuts today and couldn’t be happier. I’ve been bringing my bikes to bike shops for tune-ups for over 15 years and not once has a shop done a pre-inspection in front of me and told me that I just need a few things done and not the full tune-up. Most shops just take the bike and charge you for a full tune-up the honesty of this shop already stands out to me.
