365 New Orleans: Alex’s Bikes

New Orleans bike shop


365 New Orleans is focused on local artists and businesses. Every single day, for one year, a new person or place will be highlighted. Follow along on Instagram: @365NewOrleans 


Alex Kriegsmann of Alex’s Bikes in the Marigny is a laid back guy who knows a ton about bikes. When asked for a bio, this is what he supplied us with:

My favorite color is purple, I am a dedicated fan of all things Basketball, my spirit animal is a Bear, I think bicycles are about as neat as it gets, have a very distinct disdain for most pastas, especially spaghetti.



1. What products and services do you offer? 

We offer full-service bicycle repair, bicycle sales, rentals, consultation, and a well stocked, array of components and accessories to meet all needs and budget.


2. How long have you been in business? 

We opened our doors in February 2016. I like to say we are in “season 4” now.


3. How do people find you online? 

I think mostly google maps and associated google reviews.  We’ve been fortunate that our customers have really helped boost our online representation on that platform- and seemingly the positive experiences told in the reviews have encouraged a number of individuals to give our services a try.

4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew? 

Hmmm.. I think early on many people assumed we were a rental-oriented business given our proximity to the French Quarter; while this is something we proudly offer, repair and service have always been our main focus. If you have a squeak or a clunk, I’m confident we can unsqueak and/or unclunk it.


5. Lagniappe Info. 

We are open 6 days a week but closed on Mondays because Garfield the cat and I share the same disdain for that day.


Stop by and meet at Alex Tuesday through Sunday at 607 Marigny St.
