• Hot enough? Cool July deals

    Normally we offer interest-free financing for 6 months on any purchase over $1500, and for 12 on $3000. But this month only, we're bringing the threshold down: a full year of no interest for any purchase over $1500. Spread your payments out over a year and get the bike you want now! If you do not pay it down to zero, interest will be assessed from the purchase date at 29.99% APR; frankly, that's pretty steep, so we encourage you to apply for financing only if you are confident you can pay it off in within the promotional period. Learn more or apply online.

    Is that not cool enough? How about, instead, we give you a free $75 or $150 Clever Cycles Gift Card with any purchase over $1500 or $3000, respectively? Redeem on accessories for you or a friend. You must mention this offer at time of purchase, not afterward!

    11143727_10153314275574826_4952932542365466769_n Offers expire July 31st, 2015, valid for in-stock items only, not to be combined with any other discount. Gift cards will be sent by regular mail to the address on record thirty days from the original date of sale. Gift cards can not be redeemed for cash.

Rentals

We rent Brompton folding bikes, and sometimes a few other kinds. Bikes come complete with lights, locks, fenders, ample luggage options, etc. Bells are mandatory, no exceptions.

Part of our purpose in offering rentals is to let prospective buyers try our unusual bikes over longer periods. If you buy a bike similar to your rental within a week of return, we refund up to a week's rental fee toward the purchase.

About us

We are Portland’s first and largest bicycle shop devoted entirely to bicycles as primary transportation, serving urban households like ours seeking to avoid dependence on cars with practical, stylish bikes for everyday use: not just “commuting” bikes, but family transport, cargo, and folding bikes, all equipped for comfort, safety, and reliability. We also sell street clothing and accessories that support a practical biking lifestyle in all seasons.

We are not motivated by the rising costs of motoring, ecological guilt, or a body-sculpting regimen. Bicycling is not a sacrifice or a statement. We ride instead of drive because it is pleasurable and convenient, simply the best way to get around Portland. We do not sell sporting goods or fitness equipment: fitness happens by riding your bike right past the gym in the course of your normal errands.

We opened in June 2007, after our two families became partners to help make Portland an even better place to live and work, slow down in, ride every day. In a town with 70 other bike shops, we expanded our family-friendly shop three times through the recession to 7000 square feet, and in 2012 were named Best Urban Bike Shop in the United States by Bicycle Retailer and Industry News.
