In 1971, Big Wheel Bikes opened for business at 33rd and M Streets in Georgetown, next to the C & O Canal. The big bike on the yellow wall (lower right) is a Washington, D.C. landmark. Through eight presidents and 43 years, we've maintained our tradition of selling high quality bikes at discount prices to riders of all skill levels. Our largest store is in Arlington, Va. off the Spout Run exit of the GW parkway (above). Each of our four stores is next to a bike path and offers bike rentals. At every Big Wheel location, you'll find straight talk, courteous service, and an ability to relate to your specific cycling needs, whether you're a beginner or triathlete. Please visit our stores and experience first hand the Big Wheel touch.

Outstanding Selection of Performance Hybrids and Upright Handlebar Road Bikes!

Many of you want the light weight and performance of road bikes, but don't like the severity of the road bike ride or their high cost. Many of you want an affordable bike which you can ride recreationally and use for the occasional triathlon without embarrassing yourself. Why purchase an expensive road bike or tri bike when you're not certain how committed you are to the sport? Well we've taken notice and so have several of our vendors.

We call this type of bike the performance hybrid or the upright handlebar road bike. Some of our offerings tilt more in the direction of comfort with slightly wider tires and more pitch to the handlebar. Others of this type are more racy with slightly narrower tires and a more forward leaning position. From $389 to $1099, we've got about twenty different models of these types of bikes from Fuji, Marin, GT, Scott, Kona, and Bianchi. Purchase the bike that meets your needs at Big Wheel Bikes. All new bikes come with one year's free adjustments and a lifetime guaranty on the frame.
