While we still provide traditional labor services and tuneups, we're different from traditional bike shops because we're committed to educating our community in bike repair so they're more knowledgeable and better able to help others in turn.
In line with our mission of growing and empowering a more inclusive biking community, we proudly offer Do-It-Yourself bike repair to our entire community.
We provide our patrons with the needed tools, spare parts, and bike repair stand, and verbal assistance so you can make the needed repairs. We'll provide you with all the instruction you'll need. No experience is required. There's no fee, however we ask for at least a $15 an hour donation so that we can continue to offer this service to our community. Most tune-ups only involving adjustments will take less then an hour if we're not too busy. Basic used components are typically $5 but we also carry higher end new and used parts as well.
DIY is a great way to save a bunch of money, learn a great new skill in a relaxed environment, and save time not having to drop off your bicycle for getting serviced.
Volunteers are on hand to assist with DIY on Wednesday's 6-9 and all day on the weekends. For DIY service during other open shop hours listed, please call ahead to make sure we can fit you in. 703-549-1108.
