Best Bike Shop Disguised as a Truck
Handy Bikes DC
K and Half streets SE, (202) 417-7305
One of the best bike shops in D.C. looks like a taco truck. Handy Bikes is a Kickstarter-funded, pop-up bike-repair station that’s usually parked by the Navy Yard Metro station. It’s a labor of love (involving a truly astonishing amount of labor) on the part of a guy named Pete. Here’s what you need to know about him: Pete is an amazing bike mechanic. Pete is very friendly and a great communicator. Pete will neither talk down to you nor try to upsell you. And Pete charges obscenely low prices for his work. Bike owners, you’ll really like Pete.
