Established in 2011, Bikenetic specializes in bicycle service and commuter needs.
We sell Mountain Bikes, Road Bikes, Fitness/Hybrid Bikes and accessories.
Our full service repair shop, located conveniently at the front of our store, is stacked to the ceiling with the right tools to tackle small and large jobs with minimal turn-around and a guarantee! You'll probably even get a complimentary smile...and if you're really lucky a bad joke.
The owner, Jan Feuchtner, has worked in and managed several bike shops in the Northern Virginia area since 1999. From salesman, to bike wrench, to store manager, he has held every role a bike shop has to offer. This knowledge translates into an owner/operator who is able to understand the needs of not only his customers but also the staff. After all, a happy staff makes for happy customers!
Our Shop's Thing
Bikenetic - at the risk of sounding kinda cheezy - is a bike shop for the cyclists, by the cyclists. We are constantly shaping and molding ourselves to offer the best products and services based on requests, suggestions and recommendations.
And we still believe that the customer is (almost) always right...which means we will do what it takes to ensure your complete satisfaction.
Our staff is made up of knowledgeable CYCLISTS. We emphasize cyclists because we feel it is important to put our money where our mouth is. We won't hire someone simply because they're a great sales person or manager at a clothing (or other unrelated) store. We will however, hire an avid cyclist because they will be a naturally great salesperson, manager or mechanic because of their real world experiences. While we're on the topic, you may notice that everyone who works here wears multiple hats. It is important for us that all our employees have at least a basic knowledge of how to run each department within the store - from sales, to inventory management to repairs. For you, as a consumer, that means no matter who is working, we'll be able to walk you through at least the basics of any question you may have.
If there were a downside to our "everybody bikes" approach it would be that occasionally we need to take a West Coast style approach to our business hours. While it's rare, there are some events which require our entire staff to attend. Whether it's supporting a race or participating in one, every now and again we'll post up on our facebook page well in advance if we need to close because no one is available to work...we're sure you understand...
