This is a great shop with great mechanics. They have a mill on site and have been known to fabricate their own parts if they have to.
Ben is very knowledgeable about all things bike related. The have moved from their old store to a new one:
River Road Shopping Center
6241 River Road
Richmond, VA 23229

I do all my own wrenching but get them to press in my headsets and face and chase my frames before a build. I do buy some stuff from them like tires and grips and lube etc.
The bikes they carry a very nice and they know what they sell and will make sure the bikes fit.

Customer Service

Top notch!
really a good group of guys and girls. They care and it shows.

I've tried to give a few other shops around some business, but they never seem to know what I am asking for or tell me they don't have it but can order it.
3 Sports always helps me out and has the best mechanics in town.

Good inventory.

Customer Service

Poor. I picked the bike up after having some service done. Rode the bike directly and experianced tirer rubbing on the rear triangle. Took the bike back less than an hr. later. The first words out of Bens mouth, "I'm bussy what do you need" I did not say anything but left the bike there. His wife called back a day later and said the bike was ready. i asked what was the problem and she replied that a spacer was not put on. I except that mistake are made but the comment that Ben made after traveling 45min to the shop was unexceptable.

3Sports is a super bike shop! Carrying only the top brands such as BMC, Santa Cruz, Seven, Titus and more they have an exellent selection. Whether you need a ready to ride or custom built ride, 3Sports has you covered. Ben, the owner, is right on site always working in the bike shop basement. He is not only a triathlete himself but has a super wealth of knowledge when it comes to bikes. 3Sports has quickly become my go to bike stop for anything biking/running related! I also must gives kudos to Tom over at the Short Pump running store location. He set me up with a pair of properly fitted running shoes that have completely freed me of IT band syndrome pain! Thanks Tom!

Customer Service

Spot on. Ben always gets it right, the first time. They have awesome bike mechanics in the shop who are always willing to help. To me that speaks volumes since most bike mechanics stay in the back away from the customers. They are lightning fast when it comes to getting your orders in. I recently ordered a new rotor for my Avid Juicys. It was there that very next morning AND they called me that morning. No waiting until the afternoon to call like a of of shops do. So what did I do? Picked up the rotor and bought an entire new custom DT wheelset. Shops like this will always get my business.

This is a great shop for serious riders. The mechanics are top notch and friendly. The bikes and gear are high end so I wouldn't recommend coming here to buy your first bike, but if you are a serious mtbiker/cyclist this is the shop for you.
