A Word From Jim and Bob

Spokes Etc.’s Proud Owners

Thank you for visiting If you haven't visited one of our six locations in Northern Virginia yet, there are a few things that we'd like you to know about our bike shops. Read on and visit us soon - we look forward to meeting you and helping you with all of your cycling needs!

We're a locally owned and operated organization, and we focus on providing excellent customer service to each and every person who visits our stores or shops with us online. We're not a company that gives "cookie cutter, one-size-fits-all" service; we're here to listen to your specific cycling needs and wants and to help you find your perfect bicycle and accessories.

To provide you with the best service, we hire the best people. This has been a goal of Jim's since he founded Spokes Etc. in 1985. Our sales associates are friendly, knowledgeable cycling enthusiasts; many are certified fitters, daily commuters or competitive cyclists, so they’re ready to answer any cycling-related questions that you may have. Our mechanics are expertly-trained and experienced; many have served as paid professionals for pro cycling teams, have attended high-level industry training seminars, and have donated their services to charity rides.

Quality Matters

We're also proud to carry only high quality products from the industry's top brands, including Trek, Specialized, Giant, Seven, Electra, Surly, Gunnar, Waterford, Assos, Gore Bike Wear, and Pearl Izumi, to name just a few. If you're looking for your first bike or if you're interested in a fully-customized road machine, we have enthusiastic experts in every location who are happy to help you find the perfect fit. We have a large inventory of bicycle models and sizes on hand so that we can accommodate everyone, from children to adults and beginners to experts.

In addition, we keep our sales floors well stocked with high quality clothing, helmets, cycling shoes and other essential (and fun) equipment and accessories. Since we're cyclists ourselves, our product buyers know what cyclists want and keep our stores well-stocked with the latest and greatest.

We take pride in our diverse clientele and enjoy catering to your cycling needs. We work hard to be the best bicycle store in the Washington, DC area, and we hope to see you soon in Leesburg, Alexandria, Arlington, Belle View, Fairfax or Vienna!
