Why Buy a Bicycle From City Bikes?

The DC area's Largest Selection of the Best Brands

There are no silly questions at City Bikes

At City Bikes, we really like taking the time to show you all your choices so that you get the bike you will love. Something to keep in mind is that just like with buying a car, the quality and availability of warranty service for your bike is much of what you are buying. City Bikes has far more mechanics than any other DC bike shop, and we do over 10,000 repairs a year, most the same day.

We often tell people that in many ways, which bike you buy is less important than where you buy it. Most bike brands won't tell you this, but there can be a lot of similarities between brands, especially at the entry level price points. The quality of any given bicycle is really a matter of the care the brand takes in design and the care put into the assembly at the bike shop level. There can be big differences in how thorough an assembly a shop gives your bike, and the dealer who spends the extra time lubricating, adjusting, and perfecting your bike usually don't have "buy two for the price of one", so beware if a deal seems to good to be true, it probably is.

In fact, most people feel that this is the best part of shopping for new bikes. However, for your safety (and the care of our bikes), we'd like to explain: Our Requirements, What To Wear And Bring, How We Prep The Bike and how you should Test Ride the bike.
