Bike Shop in Western Shaw/ Logan Circle

The Prince of Petworth has a post about a Bike Shop/Video Rental at 1320 14th St NW.
What I love about it is that it’s two businesses in one. In a world of Netflix, I’m not too sure how well a video store will do. But a bike shop, particularly one that isn’t too high end….. Let me explain. I have a crappy 3 speed bike that I bought off of Craigslist for about $140. It is part of a long string of no name used bikes that I buy that are ugly yet functional. I see no reason to have a top of the line bike to run errands on and leave on the street to get stolen. I used to get my bike fixed at Chain Reaction, but that non-profit bike shop closed. So when I went to the next nearest bike shop, I was told that they could not touch my bike because their insurance wouldn’t cover it. This forced me to try to fix my own bike. I did a so-so job and really I’m willing to pay someone to do it for me, but sometimes the bike shop in Adams Morgan is a bit far. So I have to check out the bike part of this store.

  1. I had the same problem, paid $70 for a bike and went to have a tune up where they told me I needed $250 in repairs. I let that bike get stolen.

  2. The shop on 14th says they work on old 3 speeds. If they don’t post something saying so and I’ll help. Really, part of the beauty of that type of old bike is that it needs almost nothing but a little grease, and tires, and break pads.
