D.C's Best Bike Shop
Yes, DC's best bike shop is right here in Arlington - Phoenix Bikes - plus the program supports a great cause.
The one-year-old Arlington nonprofit hawks used cycles (a rarity in the D.C. area), offers discount repairs (though they might take longer than the typical bike shop) and teaches middle- and high-schoolers basic mechanic skills to get them psyched for owning wheels of their own — which they can eventually do through the Earn-a-Bike program.
I recently bought a bike there and I can fully attest to their servie and quality.
