soccer_fox and I live in Takoma Park and need a recommendation for a good bike shop. We are going to be looking for a bike for her and a good place to do repairs and maintenance for both our bikes (I love Spokes, where I got my bike, but it's only convenient to go there if I take my bike to work with me). Any suggestions for a good sales and service location? Thanks for your advice!

I've not bought anything from them, but I've had great service from College Park Bicycles. They're right off Rt. 1 in College Park, so not too far from you. They do good work, pretty quickly, and don't charge an arm and a leg. When I was buying a computer for my bike, they even upgraded me to a fancier model for only a few bucks more (and less than the asking price of the thing) because they were that enthusiastic about it. :-)

I second this. In addition, I reccomend supporting The Mount Rainier Bike Co-OP.

I third the College Park Bicycles recommendation. Very good outfit.
