It has become a tradition that we sell our rental bike fleet each November, the only time we sell used bikes. We select our rental bikes for toughness, so after only a year of use, they're merely broken in instead of worn out. It's a rare opportunity to acquire Brompton, WorkCycles, Breezer and other distinctive bikes, all completely equipped with generator lighting, fenders, racks, stands etc., at well under retail.
The fleet goes on sale Friday, Black, at 11am. First come, first serve. We will provide a sign-up sheet the morning of so you don't have to actually stand in line. Local sales only; you must ride to decide. If that doesn't whip you all into a frenzy of craven holiday commerce, we will have several new Surly and Breezer bikes marked down for the occasion.
Happy Thanksgiving, Portland. We're thankful to you for our best business year since 2007, and to powers unknown for this gentle descent into Winter.

It'll be even darker than it is now that evening. Our shop will be warm & bright, plus you'll probably run into someone you know.
Springtime a year ago we were pleased to contribute to a Kickstarter campaign for a new kind of bike light called Magnic Light. There was a lot of speculation voiced in various forums whether it was a hoax, because the physics involved defied most peoples' understanding. If this very simple invention was for real, why hadn't it already been invented? "Everybody said 'that's impossible.' Then somebody came who didn't know that, and did it."
We're happy to have received our first shipment straight from inventor Dirk Strothmann in Germany, for sale right now. Wait, it's August, not even dark until late? More about that in a bit. I've got them on the only bike I own without built-in lights, a Brompton. Everybody who likes playing with magnets, magic tricks, or seeing and being seen on a bike smiles, and some even laugh in amazement to see Magnic Lights work. Come by for a demo.
Now is ze time that we look (advisory: techno soundtrack):
Magnic Lights are very bright, lightweight, incredibly efficient bike lights that use no batteries, are self-contained, and don't require building a wheel around a dynamo hub. This makes them a game-changer, I dare say historic because I think someday most bike lights are bound to work similarly. All you do is position the small light units in proximity to any normal metal bike rim, and they work. Unlike superficially similar "be seen" products like Reelights, these don't require mounting magnets in your wheel, and are plenty bright enough to be your only lights. This is the jaw-dropping part: just the motion of the metal rim itself, not magnetic or even necessarily ferrous, is enough to power the lights. No contact or noise, no external parts or wiring, lighter weight and an order of magnitude less drag than the very most expensive dynamo hubs. There's no such thing as free energy, but any resistance created by Magnic Lights is utterly negligible, even with a wheel turning free in a stand, for minutes. They boast the brightest dynamo taillight on the market (aim carefully please!), and while the headlights don't measure up in brightness or beam shaping to the best available, they aren't too shabby either.
They run about $250 for a set of 3: 2 headlights and a taillight. That's more than most battery systems, but less than most dynamo systems not built in at the factory. And if you are really focused on high efficiency and light weight, whether for practical, aesthetic or obsessive reasons, Magnic Light is simply the best bicycle lighting system there is.
This concept could not previously have been realized practically because only recently have rare earth magnets become powerful enough, and LEDs efficient enough, for supply and demand to meet, so to speak. It turns out that any conductive material such as an aluminum rim - not just magnetic or ferrous - will produce so-called eddy currents when moving through a magnetic field. This invention harnesses these currents to turn a tiny generator without contact.
There are some issues. The biggest for people like us who use bikes to carry stuff is that since the lights and the generator units are integrated, they can be mounted only in locations that provide the correct small rim clearance and good light placement simultaneously. The provided mounting hardware doesn't have an answer for rear racks, whose mounted luggage will block the light. If you don't have either a skinny-tire fenderless road bike (Portland?!), or a bike with cantilever brake studs, there are only somewhat compromised mounting options. What's more there's no standlight, so you go dark when not moving. We'll make sure you understand all these issues before selling you a set: please bring your bike if at all possible.
We're pretty sure it's just a matter of time before the technology makes its way into more form factors, with broader feature sets. How about a stand-alone generator you connect to fork blade or seatstay that has power out for standard lights and other electronics? For now, for many, being an early adopter of the first, purest expression of the idea is part of the appeal.
What's wrong with cheap simple battery lights, anyway? No matter how much better they are than, say, 10 years ago, the inescapable reality is that the more you use them, and the brighter they are, the faster they burn out. The bigger the battery, the heavier and more fragile the light when dropped. Nobody would accept this dynamic in any other form of transportation. Battery lights are essentially disposables, at odds with the sustainable elegance of bicycles that can serve for decades.
What dynamo lights bring to the table, that battery lights never will, is liberty to run them IN THE DAYTIME. All the time, without a care in the world. With no bulbs to burn out and no resistance perceptible, why not? Tipped up just a bit, today's brighter LED lights are conspicuous a mile away in broad daylight! No battery light is bright enough to be useful in daytime without committing the user to a really onerous recharging scheme all the time. To my thinking, that's a better single safety investment than a wardrobe full of day-glo plastic garments and even a crash helmet for non-sport biking, because it can ward off rather than mitigate collisions. Our experience running bright daytime lights supports the conclusion of studies conducted with motorcycles, that they draw significant notice from other road users, preventing right-of-way violations in particular.
One last thing: one reason that battery operated lights have remained popular, apart from their lower initial expense, is that they can easily be transferred from bike to bike. If you care enough about safety and convenience to value the benefits of generator lighting, there's a good chance you own more than one bike. But then, equipping multiple bikes with generator lighting can be prohibitively expensive. Magnic Lights can be moved from one bike to another in seconds with no tools: only the inexpensive mounts need installation in advance.
When we opened in 2007, we were Oregon's first Brompton dealer. In a product lineup heavy on very big bikes, the little tiny Brompton seemed an outlier. They fit in some of our bigger bikes' front racks, and on planes, as carry-on luggage. We carried Brompton because our personal experience of them going back to 2000 made us believers. It's a good thing we had that personal commitment as a bolster, because for the first few years we didn't turn much of a profit, especially relative to conventional bikes requiring less suspension of disbelief to buy, or even try.
A small number of early adopters told their friends, who told theirs, and so on. A very healthy number of people who rented Bromptons went on to buy them. Every year the product got even better, especially in 2009 with the rollout of wide-range gearing. Some inspirational Brompton stories appeared.
And then something happened. In about 2011, the sales curve of Bromptons came to resemble a hockey stick. BOOM! It seemed like one day to the next, Bromptons stopped being something we had to sell with actual salesmanship, testimony and demonstration, and became something customers walked in announcing they had come to buy. We began to struggle to keep stocks up. We still do. Fine problems to have! Bromptons have since become absolutely crucial to the continued growth of our business, a nice validation of the "do what you love; the money will follow" chestnut.
These days we ship quite a few Bromptons outside Portland. They ship easily and cheaply. While that helps us out especially in the slow months, we miss out on meeting our customers, and you miss out on the level of service that we can provide only in person, wrench in hand, with you riding. It still amazes us how profoundly a few fit adjustments and part swaps can make to the feel of Bromptons. Sure there's only one frame size, but the things adjust in saddle heights over a range of almost 18", with cockpit lengths varying over 11"! When we ship a Brompton without benefit of fitting, we just have to hope customers explore the relevant parts of these ranges on their own.
Out-of-towners: we invite you to Portland to check out Bromptons (or any bike you're thinking of having us ship). It's is a great place to visit, anytime but especially between May and October. We've partnered with the fantastic RiverPlace Hotel, an easy walk and easier pedal over the Hawthorne Bridge from us, to offer 20% off their best normal rate for your room. Just book online and enter the code "RPC" when making your reservations. Don't rent a car: rent a Brompton while you're here, and if you proceed to buy one we'll comp the cost of the rental, up to a week's worth. Appease your husband's or girlfriend's objections to your bike junket with a romantic dinner or three; we don't have a discount on that lined up, but we can make recommendations.
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.
It's been nine months since BikePortland.org outed our plan to rent Dutchtubs by bike, but we've finally gotten an insurance company to cover our crazy scheme, and the trailer is dialed in. BikePortland.org just finished up the inaugural rental (Valentine's Day!), and ran a story.
A Dutchtub is a portable wood-fired hot tub for four. Portable enough to deliver by bicycle. Do you see where this is going? Portland's bikey people deal with more than the usual amount of cold water most of the year. So collect it in a big beautiful tub, add 2 wheels and a bicycle hitch, brilliant Dutch design, friends or family, a hot fire, a meal cooked over flame, and it's all good. Slip in and soothe your bones under the stars or spiteful rainy clouds, no chemicals or motors necessary. You can now rent a Dutchtub, reservations being accepted starting 1 March. The rate is $400 for 3 nights, plus a $50 deposit refundable upon clean return. This fee includes the following:
The tub, complete with cover, fire coil shield, ash tray, wok, fill and drain hose with fittings and bung, leveling shims, stir paddle, custom bicycle trailer doubling as a hand cart
Delivery and pickup by Clever-certified bicycle tubbist* within our delivery area
Setup at your site, with instruction, tips for a successful first heating
~60lbs dry wood for 1 heating; additional 60lbs @ $15
A firm, level ground surface (no roofs, most decks, balconies) for the tub within 50 feet of a hose-ready water source, unless you can fill the tub by means of your own device. The tub cannot be moved full.
The site must be safe for an open wood fire (open to the sky!), with no low-hanging vegetation or other nearby fire hazards. Please consider your neighbors' tolerance for possible smoky drift, party noise, etc.
Access to this space must be open from the street to a width of 5'6" (66"). If there is a narrower gate, steps or other impediments, you or a friend capable of lifting about 100 lbs will need to be present at delivery and pickup times to help move the tub safely. There is no way to get a tub through a passage narrower than 34".
Our really long waiver, signed by you, indicating that you understand and accept full responsibility for all the hazards that open flames and almost one ton of hot water can present, especially combined with common party behaviors among adults, children, pets, etc. Your responsibility extends to the public if you site the tub in a public place such as a park, street party, cyclocross race, communal water-birth-athon, mass baptism, etc. You're also responsible for any damage to the tub while in your possession. And to clean it when done; we'll return your cleaning deposit upon return of the clean tub.
Since there is a learning curve getting the tub up to temperature in good time, you can arrange to have the tubbist stay as long as necessary to fill the tub, start and tend the fire, and otherwise assure that your event is care-free. This time will be billed at $75/hr. Depending on source water and ambient temperature, it takes 2-5 hours from strike of the match to get the tub full and hot, with fire tending and stirring required every 20 minutes or so.
If you want the tub outside the delivery area, you must transport it in a truck with suitable lashing and scratch protection. A tubbist will coordinate pickup and dropoff of the tub, helping you lift it into your truck, load wood and accessories, etc., but will not provide on-site support unless by special arrangement at $75/hr.
Email or call us to book with your desired dates and address. Program starts 1 March. We'll connect you with an available tubbist to work out details and billing.
* Tubbists are Clever Cycles staff who take the lane to deliver these expensive oversize items safely by bicycle in Portland. Sorry, our insurance won't cover civilians biking the tubs home. Yet. Tubbists have demonstrated competence in heating the tubs quickly, solving many common beginner problems. Some tubbists can cook. Some look good in bathing suits; others bathe fully clothed.
We've recently received some things that we've been sold out of for a long time. We've let those on our mailing list know, but here's for the rest of you:
Morrison Stealth Pantaloons, now in a women's cut
These are our own 100% worsted wool trousers, cut for comfort on a bike, easy care, and low-key good looks. Sewn for us by Bicycle Fixation in LA, this is the third production, which we dub Morrison, combining the best black drapey gabardine of the first (Belmont) batch with the improved details of the second (Hawthorne) run.
Wear a Merino base layer underneath October to May, and plain through the summer; these are literally the only pants you need year-round in Portland. I (Todd) have worn them every. single. day. for nearly 3 years, whether all day in the saddle or just slouching around. Black hides most crud your bike might kick up, zero fade, and is perfect for impromptu funerals, goth parties, or other occasions where, say, yellow pants would be completely inappropriate. They dry quickly when rained upon. Wrinkles drape out with every normal perspiration cycle. They don't stink. Machine wash and dry...
Previously these pants have worked great on men, and on women with boyish figures. We now have them in a curvier version for women, up to size 14. Come try them on!
FollowMe Tandem Coupling
Tow your child on his or her own bike behind yours, then uncouple for independent riding. The FollowMe Tandem Coupling is the only product of its kind that does not rule out the simultaneous use of a rear mount child seat, and the handling is much better than the common kinds that attach to the seatpost of the parent's bike. It's Emily Finch™-approved!
Pilen Lyx Portlandia
Funny story: when we first ordered these beautiful, fun, terrifically made bikes in 2011, a few sold quickly, and their owners raved. And then, for reasons we still don't understand, almost nobody would even test ride them for many long months. Sales just stopped. We were even thinking about putting them on sale when, in just 11 days in April we sold 8, just by coincidence! And then we sold out, while people kept asking for more. It took a while to get more. Don't all rush!
Starting today, we're thrilled to begin accepting orders for the first small production run of Xtracycle's new EdgeRunner longtail cargo bikes, due to arrive at Clever Cycles in early January. These, along with their whole 2013 product lineup, are the most exciting things we've seen in years at Interbike, the bike industry trade show in September. I'll tell you why below, but a test ride is worth more than a million words. We have a demo EdgeRunner; ride on over to try it!
EdgeRunner is Xtracycle's boldest entry into the category they virtually invented over a decade ago with their FreeRadical hitchless trailer. Unlike the company's previous conversion kits and Radish package, EdgeRunner is a one-piece frame, offering a much stiffer, stronger, more refined ride. Alluringly designed in light resilient chromoly by multiple-NAHBS-winner (and world bicycle speed record holder!) Sam Whittingham, EdgeRunner's foremost technical improvement over otherwise similar longtails is a 20" rear wheel, which lowers the center of gravity of the load, and is stronger too. The smaller wheel also allows its axle to be further rearward than other longtails having the same overall length. The handling improvements of a load borne lower and more completely between the axles is hard to overstate. Finally, the smaller wheel produces more torque when electrified: EdgeRunner will come in an electric assist version!
Alongside the new flagship complete bike, Xtracycle is also introducing completely new accessories called the Hooptie (which is a railing/monkey bar assembly to help passengers feel more secure), Stirrups (for little feet), UTube/RunningBoards (which provide foot support for even a second passenger in the aft position), and the SideCar (which is a sidecar, 250lbs capacity, crazy inexpensive). The bags and other key accessories have been made both better and cheaper too, so we'll be able to offer complete Xtracycles at unprecedented low prices in 2013. How about a complete folding Xtracycle for $999, the Cargo Joe? Next Summer, Xtracycle will introduce new longtail conversion kits called Leap 26 and Leap 29, cheaper, stiffer, and more broadly compatible than its original FreeRadical kits.
Taken together, this thunderclap of new design work probably exceeds all previous Xtracycle development since 1998, when the company formed. Xtracycle has re-invented its own. So what happened? Well, as all this new work began, inventor and CEO Ross Evans got re-invented as a father! Carrying kids has always been one of many applications for an Xtracycle, but never before has the company shown such a tight focus on meeting the needs of families. We've practically raised our kids on the back of our Xtracycles, and we've set up hundreds of families with such setups over the years. As parents, Xtracycle's product line has never been more closely aligned with our core values, experience and vision for bicycles as everyday urban family transport.
Xtracycle and Clever Cycles: the backstory
Xtracycle's products have had an incalculable positive influence in our lives. Clever Cycles would not exist if not for this influence. I (Todd) have told the story in fragments over the seven years this site has existed, but never all at once. That whole tale is too long, but a summary will explain why we're so proud to lead Xtracycle's renewed charge into Portland.
I bought what I'm pretty sure was the very first Xtracycle product sold in our then-home San Francisco, in early 2001. I was a little skeptical about converting a nice bike into a franken-hauler with a new product that had yet to prove its bold promises, so I bought a $60 MTB to convert. I sold my cargo trailer 2 weeks later: it couldn't carry passengers. Soon I began to regret having underestimated the goodness of the Xtracycle FreeRadical by joining it to a crummy MTB, so I got a nicer one. I hauled groceries, and construction and brewing supplies on it, and my wife and mom and dad (not all at once), all over San Francisco, or at least the routes that wouldn't destroy my knees and grunting reserves. I think I was the first person to attach passenger handlebars to my seatpost on an Xtracycle.
Everywhere we went, every 20th person would act as if struck by some soft lightning, either staring gape-mouthed, or shouting out to us in amazement that such things existed. I began to feel like a reluctant revolutionary, riding a magical unicorn of a bike. Why didn't every biking household have one? We'd never owned a car, but this completely cemented our belief that we'd never feel the need, at least as long as we lived in a city. We became pregnant: we were going to raise our kid car-free, and Xtracycles were going to be key.
And then the bike got stolen. I was secretly happy to be able to convert a third bike as a replacement, because I was becoming obsessed with the handling differences across bikes elongated this way. The third one rode best yet: an old Specialized Stumpjumper Comp, Tange Prestige tubing, hot pink. When our boy was old enough to sit up, we put him in a Bobike Mini seat up front, and it was like falling in love all over again. (To this day, my favorite part of working at Clever Cycles is being able to witness toddlers' first rides on their parents' bikes.)
We visited Amsterdam, neither the first nor the last time. Wandering around town before dawn, jet lagged, I watched the city wake up and get on their bikes. Glorious bikes! Every block had several of the new Bakfiets.nl Cargobikes parked out front in the rain, and there were even longtails! I came across a large kindergarten at opening time, just as many dozens of families converged on it on their bikes with 1, 2, 3 or more children aboard or alongside, some asleep, their breath steaming in December's late dawn air, fit happy moms and dads in their normal stylish clothes, doing their normal thing. Not a single car or bus to break the sound of laughter, bells, cheery greetings and leave-takings. Time stopped. It was so beautiful, so humane. When time started flowing again, I cried. Reluctant or not, I knew somehow I was going to help this become normal in my own country.
The remainder of that trip, I analyzed how the bikes differed from Xtracycles, imagining a mutually beneficial harmonization of standards. Returning home, now reviewing my bikey life through Amsterdam goggles, I became sharply aware of how many more barriers there were to the magical unicorn Xtracycle becoming normal, at least in San Francisco. Apart from the fact that this city has the highest car density of any in America, the terrain made using the bike's amazing cargo capacity somewhat forbidding even to very strong riders. I was fit enough to do brevets, and had a 18-mile daily commute with hills and headwinds, but still I arrived many places pouring sweat, even in the city's cool climate. My knees hurt. I was tired, tired in a way childless people can't really know. I began to research electric assist systems.
I bought a crank-drive electric bike, hacked the gearing extra wide, and turned it into what I think was the first assisted Xtracycle, in 2003. We charged it from our solar array. It was kind of thrilling that it worked at all, but I can't say it worked well. It was nowhere near stiff enough to handle the whole-family loads its motor would help it move up steep hills. Still, I rode it several thousand fast fun miles before its drivetrain failed expensively in under a year, and I didn't bother to fix it.
I wanted to replace it with the ultimate (or at least the first) one-piece Xtracycle, with allowance for an assist system equal to any terrain. I got to noodling, literally making a model in perciatelli, tubular pasta. This project resulted in Xtravois, still in service 9 years later. I'm proud that my original "stretch mixte" profile has become dominant among the many longtails to have emerged in the years following from artisanal builders as well as companies Surly, Kona, Yuba, Madsen, Rans, Sun, and even Trek. But where was Xtracycle, the progenitor and rightful chief commercial beneficiary of this concept? The child was gestating, keeping its powder dry: BOOM.
We had built seven Xtracycles in three sweet years when I got laid off from my tech job. Our suddenly crushing San Francisco mortgage catapulted us to a new home in Portland, already more bike and family friendly. And much flatter, and wetter, about 8 miles on a side just like Amsterdam. We were unsure exactly how we'd make a living, except that it would involve Xtracycles, assisted when necessary. Months later, this site began, presenting our once-and-future assist product for Xtracycles, Stokemonkey. A year later, on a warm afternoon installing the second Xtracycle of our friends the Mullins, Dean Mullin proposed "let's open a bike shop!"
In less than a year from opening, Clever Cycles was selling more Xtracycles than any other shop, a position only recently ceded to others in hotter growth markets. Xtracycles are thick on the ground in Portland now, no longer magical unicorns. We couldn't be more proud.
We've never let up in beating the Xtracycle drum, even as the range of family solutions we offer has broadened dramatically, still guided by timeless moments of vision in Amsterdam. Even before we opened, we were pleased to beta test the first commercial one-piece longtail, Surly's Big Dummy, and we sell those to this day. Just last year, we designed our own successor to the original Xtravois, featuring a 20" rear wheel. We're happy to be off the hook to manufacture this bike, because now Xtracycle has made it nearly redundant, much lighter, prettier, and less expensively than we could. Everything that rises must converge!
With the arrival of EdgeRunner, it feels like a large circle is closing to begin again. "Edge runner" refers to the growth habit of certain mycelia, fungal bodies who run rapidly and hidden along the edges of plant life, plant death, and soil. Edge runners' function is to catalyze new growth by reclaiming nutrients from complex dead matter, even the sometimes toxic wastes of human industry. They break down the old into the new, enabling generational change. The name EdgeRunner, apart from being a middle name of proud father Ross Evans' beautiful boy, befits Xtracycle's original hitchless trailer concept most plainly, recycling MTBs for practical use, inspiring, firing up the imaginations of thousands of people like us to reclaim our cities from car dependence. The present complete bicycle, not being converted from old, runs ahead in a broader course prepared by the first generation, reaching out toward families for whom cargo bikes are no longer mainly emblems of sacrifice, craftiness, and revolt, but more of practical aspiration, refinement, beauty: fresh culture.
Once again, we have a demo model available for test rides. There is no substitute for test riding; we gave up trying to describe how bikes handle, fit, climb etc, over email or the phone years ago. But we think they nailed this one. It's the smaller of the 2 available frame sizes, non-electric version. We have a Hooptie, SideCar, and prototype of the new X2 bag for your trial as well. Cost is $1999 for the bike, with complete deck/bag packages starting at $149. A 50% deposit secures your claim to a bike from our small first shipment, due early January.
In 2010, our 4th year in business, Bicycle Retailer and Industry News named us a "Top 100" US bike shop. We put the sticker in a window. This year, they named us Best Urban Bike Shop in the United States. Wow! We'll try not to let it go to our heads. They'll come do a photo shoot soon, then presumably run a story. We are honored by this recognition from our peers, but the truth is we feel as much like industry outsiders as the day we opened. Our daily motivation comes from working with customers, connecting them to the products that so many bike shops seem to think nobody wants.
