Washington DC - Campy install

Looking for a LBS (DC, MD, NoVA) recommendation to install a new Campagnolo groupset. Anyone have any good experiences? I asked the shop where I usually go and they said they don't usually install or work on Campy. Thanks in advance.

I'd check the guys at Bike Club in Falls Church, they have an old school shop and the owner has been working on bikes for like 25 years. Never trust those clean shops with the fancy bikes and parts, they are retail and only in it to make a profit off the latest greatest high-end stuff. Most of the mechanics in those places are jokers who dont know spit, they turn wrenches more as a way to get people into the stores so they can sell em stuff they dont need. A good mechanic can work with Campy or JIS stuff equally well. I'd trust the guys over at Bike Club any day. The owner is the older Asian guy. Also you might find some cool NOS stuff in his shop you wont find anywhere else.

Try The Bike Lane in Burke. Very competent head mech there.
I don't take my bikes to a bike shop, but if I did...

Black Bar Bikes in Winchester, VA has a killer Campy trained mechanic. Just don't ask him to fix anything Shimano

They're a Campy "Pro Shop"

Conti's in Arlington, Spokes in Shirlington, and Bonzai in Falls Church. All three are excellent, have mechanics that really know bikes and race themselves, and the mechanics are experiened working with the best.
