Bicycle repair and wheel building on the hill.

A “bike swap” is a casual meetup of bike people to buy/sell/trade bicycles and bicycle parts with one another. Sellers will be at tables, but anyone in attendance at or not at tables can trade. There will also be an artist’s table and food grilling all afternoon. The shop itself will be devoted to free kid’s same day bike repair and we will have a limited number of both youth and adult bicycles to give away or swap out!

Our T-shirt line has new summer color options! Check them out here!

Mutual Aid Distribution RIchmond, Va. Chapter

From the site:


“We are a solidarity network of community members and organizations working together in Richmond, Virginia to help each other.


Mutual Aid Distribution Richmond (MAD RVA) or Richmond Mutual Aid aims to create a support system in response to COVID-19 and the effects it has had on Richmonders, including supply shortage, job losses, and long-term quarantine. We operate collectively and are primarily functioning as a supply delivery for folks who cannot access food, hygiene items, and other vital goods. We also have a mini-grants program and are developing other supports, forming partnerships across community, and demanding policy shifts towards equity and social justice while navigating the undetermined timeline of effects on our community.”

    First of all this shop is super professional and know how to take care their customers. I broke my rear shifter cable yesterday and I am a guy that rides every single day. I called different shops around and the shops where either … More close or wasn't taking any one day fix (the blah, blah appointments thing... SMH). As son I went to the store Luis told me that my bike will be ready in couple of hours. This guy fixed my bike and now is ready to go. You guys deserve 10 starts instead of five. You will be seen me again and I will recommend every single rider that I know to come see you if they have any issues.... WHEEL SIMPLE BICYCLE REPAIR you are the best!!!

    Friendly helpful service. They took my bike in for a walk-in repair after it got whacked by a car and turned it around quickly.
