If you are looking for bicycle shops in Nairobi Kenya, then you are spoilt for choice. Whether you are a beginner or a veteran, these shops will definitely stock most of what you need.
With the constant traffic mess in Nairobi, cycling is becoming an alternative means of transport for many people.
I am among the people who commute to work by bicycle. I own a pre-owned mountain bike bought from one of the bicycle shops in Nairobi. Apart from commuting, biking (or cycling) is an important way to keep fit or even to hang out with friends. Many cyclists make new friends through cycling or cycling events such as Critical Mass.
These bicycle shops in Nairobi stock quality bicycles (new and second hand). You can be sure to receive quality services from them. That’s why I think you definitely should check them out!
You can find a good selection and a wide range of bicycles from these shops ranging from:
- mountain bikes to hybrid bikes and even road bikes.
- Children to adult bikes.
Apart from bikes, (some of) these shops stock accessories too such as shoes, bike (or bib) shorts, helmets, etc. They also offer bike repair services and bike hiring services.
The Bicycle Shops in Nairobi
You can get a bicycle at an affordable price or based on your budget from any of these bicycle shops.
I have bought two bikes from this shop, a hybrid (that I sold) and a mountain bike. It is also my first go-to shop when I need a pre-owned bike. I also personally recommend people I know to buy their bicycles from this shop.
The shop owner, Will Ma, stocks quality second-hand bikes (e.g. ex-UK). You are sure to get a quality bike that is worth your price.
One of the features I like about the bikes sold by Pedalling Powerhouse is the quick release wheels. This has proven to be a lifesaver for me on different occasions. An example is when I get a flat or when transporting my bike using a car.
Pedalling Powerhouse is located at Ngara on Desai Road behind Pioneer University. You can reach Will Ma on +254 (0) 704 651636.
