Optimizing your ride
Knapp’s is a full service bicycle retail and repair shop offering a unique range of merchandise and services for all your bicycle needs. Our bicycle lines include the world’s best and can be worked into any budget! We carefully select our products and always try and keep a well-stocked store featuring the latest and greatest.
We are more than a bicycle store. We work hard, we constantly educate ourselves and others, and we treat each customer as an individual, listening closely to your needs. We promote the sport as a means of transportation, fun, relaxation, and most of all, family bonding. We love what we do. We Ride to Live.
Our “job” is to serve cyclists, our mission is to share the joys of cycling with everyone else.
Knapp’s first opened in 1944 in the heart of Trenton and then moved to Ewing on Olden Avenue where Pete Garnich began working at age 13. In 1989 he purchased the store and in 1998 moved it to our current location in Lawrenceville. Knapp’s has grown into a thriving business with our very simple philosophies – quality and great customer service always has and always will come long before quantity at our store.
“One of the reasons that the Ride for Runaways is so successful is that we have wonderful relationships in our community. You and your family and your staff are at the top of that list. Thank you for helping us some so that in turn more money can help the kids & programs of Anchor House. You get it...and we are lucky that you do.”
"Stopped into today to help a friend of mine select a road bike. Everyone at Knapp's was super friendly . The store is well layed out and has a relaxed atmosphere. They welcomed us immediately. Bill was great in showing my friend good choices in his price range. We found a great bike that fit the riders needs- no oversell at all. My friend is as excited as we are are with getting a new bike but was especially happy he went to Knapp's"
"I'd like to thank you, first for your kindness and can-do spirit on the date of my accident. When my mangled bike was brought to you the night before my big week long ride and your crew was prepared to repair it and put it on the truck in less than 24 hours, telling me, "not to worry" about it. That represents an extraordinarily high level of service. I also wanted to extend my gratitude for the effort made to work with my family to return my bike to top shape for an amazing Christmas surprise this year."
