Bikeways


Average Rating:    (5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

Bikeways has a long history in Hendersonville, but it has a new face and personality. Ken Weitzen opened the shop in 1985. Weitzen saw the need for a local shop to serve the area’s growing population and the great number of camps in western North Carolina. Bikeways quickly grew as its reputation for value and quality work spread. Weitzen and Bikeways were great advocates of cycling in the area, and Weitzen was instrumental in the development of Henderson County’s cycling map. In 2003 Jeff Gates bought Bikeways. Gates moved from a successful 20-year career as an engineer with Cisco Systems and NCR Corporation. He brought great enthusiasm that has helped transform Bikeways into a retail environment that combines the old and new.

Shop Summary:
This is a great little bike shop close to Dupont State (Forest) Recreational Area. Jeff is a super nice guy and has a good selection of bikes to fit most needs. I was very happy with a year end close out deal I received on my current Giant bike.

Customer Service:
After my first few rides on my bike, They fixed a bent rotor (for free) and told me of some concerns with the stock cheap cooks bros. pedals. Every time I go in the shop Jeff remembers me by first name and I only go there once every few months. Every time I've been there I have never had to wait for someone to recognize me. If they are with someone else, they always notice me and tell me they'll be right with me.

Other Comments:
This is a great little shop. Don't expect to get a big discount on accessories and stuff as the size of the shop and the location relies on every penny to squeeze by. The layout is a bit cramped but this allows them to carry a large stock of items with minimal floor space.
