What a long strange trip it's been to our new website

At long last, today we flipped the switch on a major revision to our website. For the first time in over a year, our product listings reflect actual inventory and prices. Online ordering: yes. We know there are still a lot of loose ends. Please bear with us as we scramble to tie them down. Be sure to let us know if you love or hate the new direction, too!

As always, we are first and foremost a full-service Portland, Oregon local bike shop. We list only a fraction of our products online. Please do not assume that because something is not on our website, we don’t have it!

Our site is meant more as encouragement to Portlanders to visit our shop than as a competitive response to online discounters (who will often beat our prices on commodity items) or to dealers of similar specialty products local to you, who can likely support your purchase best. We offer many hard-to-find products, but the main value we offer Portlanders is expertise, advice, hands-on problem solving, same-day convenience, and the opportunity to try out many things before buying.

While we will ship bikes (when permitted by our agreement with the supplier), we believe strongly that you should ride any bike you are considering before purchase. Similarly, several of the unusual-for-America bicycle components and accessories we stock require careful measurement and consultation to assure compatibility. To avoid unnecessary risk of disappointment and return, we may contact you to discuss these points before fulfilling your order.
