• Big clearance sale

    July 22, 2014 There have been 0 comments

    It's like a yard sale, only it's 100% new bikes that are starting to feel in the way of other stuff we'd like to stock more of. See something you like? Come on in to the store or give us a call. We want to help you find the best bike to match your needs.

    Surly Straggler

    It's like the beloved Cross Check, except disc brakes, extra tough undercoat, a tiny bit longer wheelbase, and brifters instead of old-school bar-end shifters. Also way cool purple glitter paint. This is the first drop-bar bike we've ever carried whose drop bars and shifters are too expensive to replace right away with swept city bars. Which goes a long way toward explaining why we're clearing them: we are an urban transportation shop, not a sporting goods shop. Of course, anybody who tells you you can't commute on a cyclocross bike, especially an awesome one like this, is totally lying. (The following colors/sizes are in stock: Glitter Dream: 46, 50, 54cm; Black: 58, 62cm) Regularly $1775, now $1525.

    Breezer Greenway

    Quality and performance in an affordable package. Greenways are light, their hydroformed aluminum frames will never rust, and their wide-range gearing mean they are ready for anything. Dynamo lighting, rack and fenders included. (The following sizes/colors are in stock: Satin Blue XL) Regularly $849, now $750.

    Breezer Liberty

    Wide-range 27-speed drivetrain can handle any terrain you throw at it. The Liberty is fully equipped with dynamo lighting, rack, fenders, and a rear mount kickstand. (The following sizes/colors are in stock: Blue Grey 48, 52cm). Regularly $1100, now $750.

    Linus Libertine

    Linus makes a road bike? Yes, and it's a looker, straight out of 1979 through a gauzy lens. Light butted chromoly, downtube shifters, leather tape, match-finish metal fenders... (The following sizes/colors are in stock: Steel Blue, 51, 55, 59cm). Regularly $939, now $800.

    Breezer Uptown Infinity, step-through frame

    Nuvinci continuously variable internal wide range gearing, dynamo lighting, full chaincase, wheel lock, fenders, rear rack and fenders. In Extra Small only, black/copper. Regularly $1220, now $800.

    Tern X10

    Really light, really fast, really portable and made from top quality stuff. (The following color is in stock: White/Orange). Price? Ask.

    Pilen Lyx Portlandia

    Tough, beautiful, full-service Swedish city bike suits riders above 5ft 7in. 8-speed Shimano internal gearing, LED dynamo lighting, fenders, Brooks saddle, huge rear rack, wheel lock. (The following sizes/colors are in stock: Diamond frame 56cm: Red, Blue; Step-thru frame 56cm: Blue). Regularly $1649, now $1400.

Rentals

We rent Brompton folding bikes, premium Dutch city and bakfiets bikes, and sometimes a few other kinds. Also wood-fired hot tubs, delivered by bike. Bikes come complete with lights, locks, fenders, stands, ample luggage and child-carriage 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.
