I live in Reston Town Center. I ride a custom built 2014 Bronson. Anyone know a good local shop/mechanic for repairs, parts, decent supply of full susp MTBs? I went to few shops around here but they mostly had road/hybrid bikes. I am looking for a MTB shop where sales/mechanic guys are real MTB riders and they know what they are talking about. Thanks.

That's because road/commuter bike sales keep the lights on.

Trust me, no shop around here will have problems servicing your Bronson. If for whatever reason Bikelane in the RTC doesn't seem up to par for you, then hit up Bikentic in Falls Church. There are SC dealers in the area too, I'd look them up as well.

Fresh Bikes in Mosaic District had some Santa Cruz's in there the one time that I stopped in. Seemed like good guys, no bad vibes. You could check that place out. FWIW...

Bike Lane in Reston Town Center rents mtbs and the younger guys there ride Lake Fairfax. Green Lizard in Herdon has a ton of stuff. Conte's has a few locations in NoVA and the guys there ride all of the trails in the area, Fountainhead, Patapsco, etc. Conte's is also a Santa Cruz dealer.

I had some work done at A1 in Manassas(sister location of the one in Herndon). They are great guys in there and know their stuff. I know some of them work at both locations so I'm sure the Herndon shop is great too.

I have been going to the bike lane since they first opened years ago. The one is RTC does better mechanical work in my opinion but both shops are equally great in everything else.

As mentioned before, don't judge a shop by what they sell. A lot of shops in the local area have fantastic knowledgable and certified bike mechanics that can work on any type of bike whether it's a cheap wally bike to a top of the line road, e-bike, mtb, etc.

Try Bikenetic

Might be a bit out of your way but I'm a fan of Bikenetic in Falls Church. It's a good shop and they do quality work. Fat bike friendly too.

Another vote for A1 Cycling in Herndon. The guys there ride rowdy stuff, and can help you out for DH/Enduro/Trail setups, along with every other type of riding. Fantastic shop.
