Because we want you to feel the love (of cycling), we'll be having a sale on select bicycles and accessories all through the month of February. Time to say adieu to our fleet of rental bikes (to make room for new ones.) These sturdy workhorses from Brooklyn Bicycle Co. have served us well. It's a great chance to get a Dutch style city bike for very little money. Prices start at $250. We also have a handful of new bikes greatly marked down like a Brooklyn Bicycle Co. Willow 7 speed step-through frame originally $750 reduced to $550. We have one Simcoe Basic Roadster 3 speed step-over frame originally $700 now $500. Canadian company Simcoe makes stylish, classic bikes with beautiful details and durable paint finishes. For a tall kid or small adult we have a Torker U-3 in a 44cm frame. It's a 3 speed internal geared bike with a racier geometry and drop bars. Originally $500 reduced to $325. And we've knocked down the price of our last SE Wildman 20" bmx bike. Yours for $284.26 including tax for this popular kid's bike. As for accessories, all of our Racktime bags and panniers are 30% off. German company Racktime makes practical gear for commuters like the Side One Urban and Work It Wide that look good on the bike right into the office. A selection of Basil bags and panniers are also 30% off. Dutch company Basil is a shop favorite because of their bright and fun colors and patterns on items like their Basonyl Double Bag or Jada Mirte Shopper. Quantities are limited and prices quoted do not include sales tax unless otherwise noted. Stop in and test ride a bike Tuesdays through Saturdays.
We've just added some more bikes to our February sale! All Brompton folding bikes are reduced 10% off MSRP and all Pashley bicycles are reduced 15% off MSRP. The sale is good only on bicycles currently in stock.
Getting Ready for the Countdown December 29 2016
There's still time to pick up a new bike or much need accessory before the end of the year. We have a good stock of SE bmx bikes like Big Ripper, STR Quadangle 29, or OM Duro (more 2017 silver So Cal Flyers expected early January!) If you've been dreaming of a cargo bike we have the new Benno Bikes Carry On and it's e-cousin, Boost. We have new stock of waterproof bags from Ortlieb and Carradice. And we always have a wide range of Brooks saddles, bar tape, and grips. Plus loads of other cargo bikes, family bikes, folding bikes, city bikes, kids bikes, and accessories.
We hope you all have a crazy fun (or pleasantly quiet) and safe New Year's celebration. We will be closing at 2pm on 12/31 and closed on New Year's Day. See you on the other side!
'Tis The Season: Bicycle Gift Ideas (Part I) December 03 2016
We have lots of bikes that would make great gifts: for your wheelie well behaved teenager how about a greatly sought after SE Big Ripper, or for your city hopping commuter a Brompton folding bike would be perfect, or perhaps the whole family deserves one big Babboe Curve cargo tricycle. But if a new bike isn't in your budget, we have on a smaller scale (and easier on the wallet) these lovely bicycle prints by Brooklyn artist Taliah Lempert. Tahliah is renowned for her bicycle portrait paintings. We have a numerous assortment of her colorful prints that would look good on any wall in your house. They come numbered and matted with prices starting at $25. We also have some magnet sets, temporary tattoos, and note cards that she's adorned. Prices start at $5.00. Come to the shop to see what we have.
We Like Big Bikes and We Cannot Lie! May 06 2016
We like these two BIG BIKES so much that we've restocked them. A favorite with the wheelie kids, SE's 2016 Big Ripper has been tearin' up the streets of Philadelphia. It's bright white frame with sharp gold accents and massive 29" Thickslicks make it a much sought after ride. No need to look any further, we got it here. For grownups, the Babboe Big is the bike (or rather, trike) to replace the family car, at least one of them. Little kids love being transported around the city in the big front box where they have the best view. Two benches can carry up to four children. For rainy days there's an optional rain tent. Those two wheels in the front can support a lot of weight and it's super stable. Only one downside, you can't do a wheelie.
Little Riders Gonna Wheelie Love These Bikes April 07 2016
Lil' Care Bear dreams of doing wheelies one day and knows the best bike to start on is this rad 12" Bronco from SE Racing. It's pretty sharp; comes with removable training wheels, rear coaster brake, and has a front hand brake like it's bigger cousins. Need the next size up? We have the 16" in stock too with the same features as the 12".
