Peaches the Local Bicycle Mechanic and Repair! (U St)

15th St NW near U St NW

(google map)

I'm a bike mechanic with years of experience and an inventory of parts - chains, brake pads, and the like - and tools to fix your bike.

I can do mobile repairs, coming to you as a house call, or you can come to me (a little cheaper). Including hub and spoke work on your wheels, and to make a bike that doesn't shift or brake, rideable again. Recently, I've been trialing out hot waxing your chain, with the addition of a Teflon type lubricant, to make it sweet, clean, efficient ride. And hot waxed chains are the coolest!

I love thinking about min-maxing - fixing the things that will satisfy you and your needs, without doing (and charging) you for the things you don't need! Clients regularly tell me that I get their bike working - for a reasonable amount - when some places won't even touch it.

I can help you find the help you need, diagnosing most problems with reasonable fixes.

safety: I'm committed to being safe during Covid. Please no stolen bikes (checking and 529garage)
